A Bath to Remember - Statement Baths

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

In my last post I featured a bath that got quite a lot of people talking, and from which I received details of another extraordinary bath and it got me thinking, is a statement bath a new trend?  I have to admit in our household we actually prefer a shower, but on occasion there is nothing like indulging in some hot soapy bubbles.  One thing is certain, for a statement bath you need space, it needs to be in a room where it can be the centre of attention.  Your design should not overshadow the bath but compliment it with dark rich tones or remain neutral. Copper Copper has been a key trend in interiors and it even can extend to your bathroom in the form of these exquisite baths.  Copper baths have been on a journey of evolution from its humble start in front of a roaring fire to today when they adorn luxury bathrooms for the more wealthy among us.  This pair of beautiful baths one clad in oak and the other teak are refined items of true beauty.
