Before and After – Freestanding Bath Renovations
February 22, 2018

Often I find when looking for inspiration on a renovation I can’t find practical examples of how my space will look. Knowing this my aim for our before and after series is to help you visualize your renovation space better with more accurate examples of bathroom renovations we have completed in Perth that hopefully matches your before or even better desired after.

The key to a Freestanding Bath style of layout is to understand that cleaning will be the biggest factor. Unlike a traditional drop-in bath which has brickwork all around it the freestanding bath often has gaps in place of those bricks. It’s important to note that you can stand in the bath and get to these spots or some of the baths now come with those sections completely filled in.

Kiara Bathroom Renovation

One of my favorite bathroom renovations we have ever done simply for how much someone can achieve in such as small space. The bathroom is a little unique from the others as it could only fit a 1400mm bath which is shorter than most freestanding bath installed.

Leeming Bathroom Renovation

Big baths take up space but damn are they not great to bath in. There are always concerns about putting large freestanding baths in smaller spaces but I have always maintained they are a better option than something adults can not use with the lower drop in baths.

The freestanding-bath renovations look and feel great. As an adult, us and children can actually use the bath opposed to the much shallower bricked bath. My wife personally every time we book a hotel anywhere wants a tub bath so I know it can be a great selling point. If you are dead set on keeping a bath I would recommend getting a freestanding bath. The downsides are its cost which can be $750 to $1500 more expensive to purchase oppose to the drop in bricked bath and the cleaning factor. If they are not issues for you then always go freestanding when possible for a wow factor and a relaxing feel.

It’s important to note that all our advice is general in nature and all bathrooms are unique so always speak to your local qualified tradesman for the best advice.
