baths, as their name suggests, are not built in but stand
independently in the room, usually on a set of stylish feet
or a cradle. Roll Top and Slipper baths are reminiscent of
a Victorian-style and are therefore very popular for those
looking for a traditional-style bathroom. Sizes can vary but
are usually around 1.7m by 0.77m but remember that cast iron
is extremely heavy - you must check that your floor is strong
enough before you purchase.
The look of a freestanding bath would be spoilt by using
general plumbing fixtures, so take advantage of the more decorative
items such as plated overflow and waste pipes, shallow traps
and standpipes, as shown here with this Kent Slipper bath
from Heritage, to enhance the look.
Perth Acrylic Roll Top bath
Acrylic freestanding baths are now more widely available and can have the same dramatic effect as their cast iron equivalents, but can be manipulated to form more intricate designs, they are not as heavy and bear all the other benefits of acrylic as a bath material. You no longer have to spend hours trawling salvage yards to find an antique style roll-top bath; the Perth Acrylic Roll Top bath from Heritage proves how a modern can be made to reflect a traditional style.
