Freestanding baths are as the name suggests placed directly onto the bathroom floor, often using classic claw feet to stand raised, or with a more modern soak tub design, the entire bath itself may sit flush on the floor surface. As with everything in life there are advantages and disadvantages, and if you are considering freestanding baths Harrogate Bathrooms can discuss these pros and cons with you.
For example, you may need to reinforce the floor for a heavy cast iron bathtub, the plumbing work can also be a little more involved than a simple exchange of one built-in bathtub for another in the same location, however a freestanding bath won’t require sealing, mounting, surrounds like a built-in bath, and of course you open up a whole new world of incredibly stylish and impactful design options with a freestanding bath.
