Nothing quite expresses elegance in a bathroom more than a stone freestanding bath. Stone mixtures of quartz and limestone are formed into the smoothest baths that promote relaxation before you’ve even turned on the taps. There’s no denying that stone freestanding baths look good, but are they practical and what are the benefits of installing them into your new bathroom?
One Time Purchase
A stone bath is built to last and is made to be extremely strong, stronger than granite in the case of the stone baths from Waters Baths new Elements range. The stone will not crack or split and if there is an accident and the bath is somehow damaged they can often be easily repaired. However, damage is rare and this is a bathtub that could last you a lifetime, especially if you take good care of your stone bath; keep it clean and it will repay you in longevity.
Enjoy Baths for Longer
Stone naturally retains heat, so you’ll be able to enjoy longer warm baths without running the hot tap several times. The stone freestanding bath stops the heat from escaping and you can spend as long as you want in the bath without having to worry about water wastage or additional heating.
A Touch of Class
If you want a bathroom with the wow factor, which informs guests that no expense was spared, then investing in a stone freestanding bath is the ideal option for you. These baths scream elegance and luxury; they are perfect for contemporary bathrooms, spa bathrooms and are even found in five star hotels around the world. Sure, they’re not the cheapest baths you can buy but you get what you pay for and the bath will last you for years and years to come.
Is a Stone Bath Right for You?
Not every bathroom is suitable for a stone bath. These tubs are extremely heavy and you may need to consult with your architect and builders before you go out and make your purchase. Downstairs bathrooms are ideal for stone baths but they can be installed upstairs providing the floor is going to be strong enough for the bath when it’s filled with water.
The cost of stone baths is also a factor to consider in your new bathroom. They’re not cheap (check out our current deals on stone baths and see what you can save) but you’re paying for quality and design. You’ll also save money thanks to the natural insulating properties of the stone and your new bathroom may be adding to the value of your home. If you’re designing a bathroom to increase the saleability of your home we recommend you consult with local estate agents before you begin the design process.
