Victoria+Albert is a leading light when it comes to freestanding baths. The British owned and operated company has a reputation worldwide for creating beautifully crafted freestanding baths. Robertson currently stock 14 different styles of freestanding baths from Victoria+Albert and the range continues to grow.
There is a lot to love about freestanding baths. Here are five reasons clients may want to consider switching the next time they have their bathroom renovated.
5 Reasons to Make the Move to a Freestanding Bath:
Make the Bath a Feature
Baths are often neglected — a piece of bathroom furniture that gets stuck in the corner, serving their function without much style. With a freestanding bath, however, the opposite can be true. Paired with a freestanding bath column and hand shower, a freestanding bath can add interest to bathroom designs. A freestanding bath can become a feature of any bathroom.
Create the Boutique Look
Those lucky enough to go and stay in fancy boutique hotels will have noticed a trend towards freestanding baths. Freestanding baths create a very boutique feel in the bathroom space and it’s amazing how a soak in a freestanding bath just feels different to a wall-attached tub. A freestanding bath adds a sense of luxury to bathrooms, and its now possible to bring that boutique look and feel to homes.
There is a common misconception that freestanding baths take up more space because they are not boxed into the corner of a room. Whilst a large bathroom helps to easily accommodate a freestanding bath, it's no longer a deal-breaker. As freestanding bath designs have evolved, the designs have improved to make the most of the space. Robertson's smallest Victoria+Albert freestanding bath comes in at just 1,495cm in length, giving designers plenty of room to play with.
Traditional or Contemporary
A key feature of Robertson's wide range of freestanding baths is the mix between traditional and contemporary designs. Just looking through the Victoria+Albert collection, they tick all the boxes. From the very traditional quarrycast feet to a more contemporary, rounded style, designers and homeowners can pick a style to suit any bathroom design.
The ‘Cool’ Factor
Let’s face it. Freestanding baths just look cool. They definitely add to the overall value of a bathroom as they add a point of difference. Imagine looking around a series of similar houses, and then coming across a bathroom which features a freestanding bath. It's clear which would be the most memorable.
