Corner bath ?

Well we are getting thoughts together for the another bathroom refit , we’ve done the ground floor one with shower bath and works well , so I thought a corner bath with shower over would be nice , any one got a corner bath and how do they get on with it ?

We have a corner bath and I have to say I don’t like it, but the one in our previous house was ok. You do need a lot more water to fill one and they tend to be shorter than a normal bath which isn’t a problem for me! Our other bathroom has a conventional bath and that is a lot longer.

We had a corner bath at our last house it was excellent for bathing with friends as there is plenty of room but as Mr P said if you are on a water meter it takes a lot more water to get it to a decent level unless you have one of these to hand to raise the level a little Whistle

When I purchased a holiday home in Lyme Regis it had an expensive corner whirlpool bath/jacuzzi with a dozen or so jets.

As Paul says they tend to be shorter than one might like, and take a lot of water to fill. I played with the idea of replacing it, but in the end suffered it until I sold the property.

When I built a new bathroom at my present home I went for 1800 x 900 double ended bath with a power shower over. It really works for me, YMMV.

The one thing I regret is not installing a hotel style hot water re-circulation system, as the bathroom is a lon way from the boiler & hot water tank, and one has to run the water for a considerable time before it becomes hot.

I'm still thinking about this or adding trace heating to the hot water pipes.

This ^ The only one in our house that likes it is 8yrs old. As SWMBO says they are a pain to clean as you have to reach a long way over Laughing
