How to Choose a Corner Bath

Baths are available in so many shapes, styles and sizes, which can make choosing the right type a little challenging. But if you want to bring a touch of luxury to your bathroom, you could consider a corner bath.

Corner baths provide an alternative to straight baths, and can add a stylish feature to your bathroom too. So, if you’re considering this style of bath, here’s all you need to know to help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

What to consider before a choosing a corner bath

Before choosing a corner bath, there are a few things you need to take into consideration first. The first thing you need to do is work out if a corner bath is suited to the design of your bathroom. A corner bath tub doesn’t require the long wall space that a straight bath does, which means it can be tucked into a corner where a bath would typically not fit. This is ideal if your bathroom isn’t long and thin.

Once you’ve worked out if a corner tub is suitable for your bathroom, you will need to measure the space accurately and double check the measurements to be on the safe side.

Work out how much wall space is available and ensure there’s enough space around the bath and other fixtures. It’s a good idea to be realistic about the size of bath that would best suit your bathroom. Choose a bath that is slightly smaller over one that is too big, as this will only make the space look and feel more cramped. There should be a minimum of 700mm of space around the corner bath so you can get in and out easily.

One other thing to bear in mind is that corner baths typically use more hot water compared to a straight bath, so make sure your hot water system can cope with this extra demand.

What types of corner baths are available?

There are two main types of corner baths to choose from. The main type is where the two straight sides are an equal length, with the curve coming around the front.

The other type is an offset corner bath, which is where one side is longer than the other. An offset bath is ideal if you want the luxury of a corner bath but lack the right wall space. Another advantage of an offset bath is that it incorporates more bathing space compared to a standard corner bath. Offset corner baths are available in left and right handed designs, so you will need to work out which hand you will need before buying.

If you lack the space for a separate bath and shower enclosure, but don’t want to make any compromises, then your best option is to look at corner baths with a shower screen. This way you can enjoy a long soak in the bath or a refreshing shower.

All corner baths at BigBathroomShop are made from high quality acrylic to ensure great durability. They all include a bath panel, so that’s one less thing for you to worry about.

A stylish and practical option

Featuring generous proportions and smooth curved lines, a corner bath looks luxurious, oozes opulence and is a stylish option. Providing an indulgent bathing experience, a corner bath will also create an eye-catching focal point and bring a spa-style touch to your bathroom. Some corner baths even incorporate a seat that’s moulded into the corner area for added practicality.

Choosing taps for your corner bath

When choosing taps for your corner bath, it’s a good idea to opt for a design that enhances the style of your bathroom.

Cross-head bath taps are perfect for a traditional bathroom, while a waterfall bath filler tap is a great option for enhancing a spa-style look.

Bath shower mixer taps are the most practical type of tap, as they allow you to rinse and clean around your bath with ease. You will also need a waste to complete your corner bath installation.
