Victoria + Albert
“We see a steady trend towards freestanding bathtubs at the top end of the market,” she said. “Even in the United Kingdom, where bathrooms are among Europe’s tiniest. “This could be because we’ve added more tiny standalone baths to our lineup.” These are only 1,500 mm long and can be installed in areas where a built-in bath would ordinarily be the only option.
“They provide a touch of luxury to smaller bathrooms while also increasing the sense of space by exposing more floor space.” We introduced smaller versions of our popular Barcelona, Toulouse, and Amiata freestanding bathtubs last summer, and they quickly became popular. “A built-in bath has the advantage of being suitable for both bathing and showering. They can still be fashionable : Victoria + Albert’s Kaldera features a clean profile and a comfortable 32-degree recline angle.
“Material selection is important. Built-in bathrooms are usually made of pressed steel. These are powerful, but they are frigid to the touch. Quarrycast stone composite baths by Victoria + Albert are naturally warm and retain the heat of the water. They’re simple to care for, stain and scratch resistant, and come with a 25-year warranty.
“However, the quality of installation is critical for any built-in bath. A professionally constructed bath, surrounded by striking geometric tiling around the front panel and rear wall, would give any household or hotel bathroom a very opulent impression.”
