Baths and Spas – What Types Are Available?

Are you redesigning your master bathroom in Perth and dreaming of a new bath or spa? If so, you’re probably wondering what options are available for the bath of your dreams. Check out the different types you can get to fit your bathroom’s décor and your needs.

Pedestal and Clawfoot Baths

Clawfoot and pedestal baths first became popular in the 19th century, when they were a must-have for high society houses. They’ve never really gone out of style since then, and they have a timeless look that people love. Plus, they work well in traditional or modern bathrooms.

Alcove and Recessed Baths

Installed against the wall or in an alcove in the bathroom, these baths are the most popular and familiar to homes throughout Australia and around the world. Most are made of enamel-coated cast iron, steel, or acrylic, but some newer ones are made of fibreglass, as well. Almost all recessed or alcove baths have a shower over them.

Corner Baths

Shaped like triangles or wedges, corner baths are designed to give you more space in and out of the bath by fitting into a corner of the bathroom. These baths often come with air jets for a spa-like whirlpool bath experience at home.

Drop-In Baths

Want a really cool and modern look? With a drop-in bath, you can install your bath in a cut-out in your bathroom floor or in a slightly raised platform. The effect is a flush appearance similar to an in-ground pool, and you can opt for an overflow bath that has the same look and feel of an infinity pool with water rising all the way to the brim, too.

Whirlpool Baths

Also called Jacuzzis, whirlpool baths have air jets in them that provide streams of water and air bubbles for a relaxing massage effect. These jets can be turned on or off, depending on whether you want to sit back and enjoy a massage in the bath or not.

Walk-In or Gated Baths

If you or someone in your family has a disability but still wants to enjoy a luxurious bath, a walk-in or gated bath is the way to go. These baths have a high wall with a seat or bench in the tub, and they have a gate or door that allows you to walk into the bath without climbing over the wall. Then you can use the seat instead of lowering yourself all the way down into the tub.

With so many choices, there’s sure to be a bath in Perth that’s perfect for you, your bathroom décor, and your needs.
