I always love a freestanding bath - no matter the space!
I have one in the family bathroom & the space is a bit tight but would like one in the ensuite to really enjoy it!
Help for layout of new main bathroom with a small space!
Freestanding or back to wall bath? Thoughts please
BEST LAYOUT FOR RENOVATING (SMALL) FAMILY BATHROOM - NO TOILET
Shower Bath - Yes or No
Who would ever want to make cleaning more 'challenging'? I suspect only people who don't have to do it. Dumbest idea ever.
There are freestanding back to wall baths that are perfect for small spaces.
I completely agree with susan_66!
Our mutual understanding of "small space" may not be shared based on the picture given.
Cleaning is my 'bug bear' too. But you don't have to worry about cleaning behind a back to wall bath which gives a free standing look. Here are 2 we've put in houses we have recently built.
I think it is harder to clean a built in, all those joining places and maybe grout
I have one in my own home and it has never been a problem.
@Wayne Carter Homes - they look great. Although I prefer a built-in bath, I could live with your design. However, my bath is 1800mm and it fits snuggly into bathroom. I don't see the point in having a large bathroom.
Ours works in our master ensuite. I think it makes the room looks more spacious with the space around the bath as opposed to an inset bath in a tiled hob. Not difficult to clean around at all, I say go for it, I always love a free standing bath!
I like the look of these ones.
Free stand bath for sure- so luxurious!
I love the look of free standing baths, but the practical side leads to a built in.
out 10 for a free standing bath:
cleaning: 5 depends on who is cleaning, but for me (the 1 who cleans,) who likes cleaning any way
placing of wine glass: 0
space used up: 2 They take up a lot space where, I think storage and placement of bubblebath, wine etc could be placed
getting in and out: 2 - 7 (depending on age and mobility) : this was the deciding point for us, elderly parents, and 4 kids under 4. ( 2x twins!!)
We love both!
A common misconception we've found with freestanding baths and spas is that they're simply be too heavy to move around for cleaning purposes.
To make cleaning manageable, our 100% Australian made baths and spas are manufactured using Gelcoat composite construction which is extremely strong yet not overly heavy (5mm thickness to ensure structural rigidity and increased thermal properties).
So one of our baths is typically around the 40-50kg mark which allows most people to easily slide the bath out from the wall for easy cleaning access.
Freestanding stone baths are a different story altogether!

If your bathroom is not enough large, in fact you can choose the small freestanding bathtub!
