Extra Style – Three Wall Shower Bath (Roman Bath)

 

Southern River Bathroom Renovation

Below are bathroom renovations we recently completed that wanted a bath option but did not want a bath you stand-in or a wet room bath so the only option was the classic roman bath. A roman bath has three walls built around it and in theory, is the best of both worlds a bath you can lay in and a stand-in. The only issue is they are not the most comfortable baths but has its upsides.

Shower baths are not everyone’s cup of tea. The feelings of getting in and out of something high can be tricky and a little slippery. I find people install them for function over style so it’s important to try and nail both if possible. Shower baths are great at making space for something else.

All this is to say renovations have a purpose and if your purpose is to gain something such a toilet then why not sacrifice a walk-in show and hey if you love a shower bath then definitely install one its something you have to live with every day so don’t listen to what other people tell you. Renovate to your needs and wants not the needs and wants of others.
