With unique shapes and even splashes of colour gaining popularity, the latest baths on the market dominate as centrepieces in the bathroom.
1. The Noir freestanding bath from Caroma is the star of this bathroom with its striking two-tone design. A black exterior adds moody depth, while a traditional white interior allows a more practical bathing experience than an all-black bath. www.caroma.com.au
2. Kohler’s Presqu’ile bath definitely has that wow factor. It features an integrated shelf and curved design for added comfort and has the flexibility to be freestanding, inset or semi-inset. www.tradelink.com.au
3. The Edge bath from Victoria + Albert is surprisingly compact yet large enough for two. Made from a single piece of highly durable and warm-to-the-touch Quarrycast, it features a strong cubic form with softened corners and deep interior for a luxurious soak. www.vandabaths.com/aus
4. Bathe in a work of art with the Large Oval bath in Chocolate from Boyd Alternatives. Highly sculptural in design and made from engineered stone, the bath has a tactile silken finish that makes for a truly soothing bathing experience. www.boydalternatives.com.au
5. The Askew bath from Kohler oozes cool with its jagged, geometric shape. The deep soaking tub is made from Lithocast, a solid-surface acrylic that looks like stone but is warm to the touch and gentle on the skin. www.kohler.com.au
