Of course these days’ baths come in a selection of shapes and sizes from your corner bath designs to your rectangular bath designs.  Deciding which bath is the right choice may seem a little daunting, but you need to choose the bath that best suits your overall design.

Smaller Bathrooms

When it comes to the smaller bathroom you are more restricted on space which means you’re more restricted on the baths you can choose.  Corner baths and shower baths are great additions to the more compact bathroom design.

Corner baths are available in a choice of styles from the oval design to the more rectangular bath design.  Shower baths are available in a compact design and come with a shower screen, enabling you to enjoy the best of both.

Spacious Bathrooms

If you are lucky enough to have a spacious bathroom, then you are one of the few.  The advantage to this is that you have a blank canvas and are able to design your bathroom as you have always dreamed.

Roll top baths, freestanding baths and rectangular baths work beautifully in the spacious bathroom.

If you want to place your bath against the wall, maybe under a large window or against a feature wall, then the freestanding and rectangular baths are what you are looking for.

Rectangular baths have a stunning straight edges, perfect for the modern bathroom design.  While they have straight edges the inside of the bath varies dramatically.  There are options where the rectangular design is carried through on the inside and then there are those that are almost kidney shaped on the inside, while the outside remains a straight edged rectangular design.

Another option, of course, is to install a spectacular freestanding or roll top bath in the centre of your bathroom, making it a centrepiece and a feature, giving your bathroom that “wow” factor you are hoping to achieve.

You can add a luxurious touch to any bath by adding whirlpool or airpool options.  Adding these fantastic spa jets to rectangular baths really change your bathroom space inch your own private spa.  Just imagine, you will never need to visit the day spa again and you will have the luxury in your own home.

Sheer Bathroom Luxury with a Whirpool and Airpool Baths

Spa inspired and luxury bathrooms are the top of the list when it comes to bathroom designs this year. Bathrooms, which used to be an essential space in any home are taking on a different role, they are a space to unwind after a long day, a place which oozes luxury, sophistication and elegance and the more luxurious the bathroom, the higher your home value.

Most people don’t renovate their bathrooms just to increase the home value, but it is a welcome extra when you have completed your luxurious bathroom and know it’s added a few pounds to your home value.

One of the most popular additions to a luxury designed bathroom is whirlpool and airpool baths. People spend thousands at day spas each year, getting hydrotherapy treatments for aching muscles, poor circulation and arthritis. Why spend so much money when you can have the convenience at home in your own bathroom?

The Difference

You may be wondering what the difference is between whirlpool and airpool baths, when it comes to health benefits there is no difference. The difference is in the way that they work, whirlpool baths jet out water, while airpool baths jet out air. It’s that simple. The only slight difference is you can never run a whirlpool bath without water covering the jets, this is very important as you can burn out the motor.

The Benefits

Whirlpool and airpool baths come with a host of benefits. They offer great massaging powers to those with aching muscles, relaxing in a hot bath while the jets gently massage aching joints is exceptionally beneficial.

These baths also improve circulation and help aching joints for those suffering with arthritis.

Away from the healing benefits, the whirlpool and airpool baths are easy to clean and maintain, which means that the choice is yours on which one to pick, one is not better than the other. The whirlpool baths require you fill the bath with soapy water using a cleaning mixture which you run through the system, you then add clean water and rinse the system before drying it out with a towel.

The airpool baths use the air jets to keep the system clean, once the bath is empty, you can run the jets for a minute and then wipe out the bath, ready for the next use.

The biggest advantage of these luxurious baths is the statement they make in any bathroom design. They add that sophisticated and luxurious finish to any bathroom design.

Corner Baths – The Ideal Choice For Any Bathroom

The benefit of corner baths is how much floor space you can save, the ability to neatly tuck your bath in the corner leaves you plenty of room in any bathroom to put other bathroom products without the bathroom looking too cluttered.

For many of us we think of a corner bath and immediately we imagine a bath with a rounded front and triangular back that fits neatly in the corner. Yes these designs are available and they are stylish and elegant and always offer that modern twist in any bathroom design.

What you may not realise is that there are many other options. A corner bath doesn’t need to be triangular in design, in fact you can have a rectangular bath for along the wall that is specifically designed to fit in the corner at one side.

How To Choose

When choosing corner baths for your bathroom it’s important that you measure the space you have available to ensure the bath will fit with ease. The benefit of corners baths is that they don’t compromise your floor space, so you need to take this on board and ensure that you don’t reduce your floor space too much by installing one of these fantastic bath options.

Space is a huge factor when choosing to add any bath to your bathroom design, luckily corner baths enable you to enjoy the luxury of a bath in a smaller bathroom design. By saving floor space you are able to still include a toilet, basin and even a vanity and still have space to move around with ease.

Design Choices

When it comes to design options, as I mentioned before you will not struggle with choices available.

The Monaco corner baths are the traditional styled corner bath with the perfect corner fit and rounded front, they will blend in with any bathroom design.

Then there is the Saranto corner baths, these are my favourites. They are unusual in shape with very straight sides, ideal for the modern bathroom where you want to get away from the rectangular or square design, but don’t want the rounded shape.

Space corner baths have the ideal corner positioning with a narrow and wider side to the bath along with a straight edge. These are the perfect choice for any bathroom whether you have a modern or traditional bathroom.

Lastly the Legato corner baths are modern and stylish with a unique hexagon style shape to work with any bathroom design.

The Deciding Factors over Whirlpool and Airpool Baths

So you’ve decided to remodel your bathroom and add a whirlpool or airpool bath. The majority of people who add these baths to their bathrooms do so for the sheer luxury of the experience, though interestingly these baths have medical properties that can assist with hypertension, arthritis and muscular pain.

When choosing to add whirlpool or airpool baths to your bathroom there are a couple of things to take into consideration to help you choose between the two. It’s interesting to note that there is not many differences when it comes to maintenance and cleaning, the only difference is one jets air while the other jets water.

What Time of Day Will You Bath

You are right when you bath will make absolutely no difference as to which is the better option for your bathroom. Where time of day will make a difference is at night when the children have gone to bed and you have the time to run a wonderful hot bath, light some candles, turn down the lights and soak as the jets massage all your worries away.

How Long You Bath

You are right again this will also not help you when you are looking at whirlpool and airpool baths. These baths can be used as a normal bath without the jets or a relaxing spa like bath where you can be massaged by air or water and help your aching muscles.

When or how long you bath will make absolutely no impact on which of these baths are right for you.

Will Anyone Else Use The Bath

Well this point is something you should take up with the whole family, you may want to be selfish about your new whirlpool or airpool bath and keep it to yourself so you can enjoy the jets as and when you want.

Again you are right, this is going to make no impact on which one is the right choice for you.

What Will Help You Decide

For the serious side of things, both the whirlpool and airpool baths offer a spa like bathing experience. They both massage muscles, help with circulation and can do wonders for those suffering from arthritis.

They are both easy to maintain and clean, the only difference is that the one jets water and the other jets air. This means when cleaning the water one needs a solution run through it where the air one needs the jets to blow out air without water in the bath. Other than that they both offer the same advantages and convenience, so the choice basically comes down to you and your own preference.
