A bathroom can follow the same staid and tired formula — until you find a hero to take it from less to luxe
Incorporating a freestanding bath into your design can transform the space, offering a feature that will not only draw the eye and add a sense of majesty, but also offer you a place to relax, unwind and soak away all the troubles of the day.
If you’re on the hunt for such a piece, you cannot go past the range of freestanding bath and spa bath designs from Decina. With designs that embrace the curves of nature, these are truly statement pieces that will look stunning in your bathroom. We’ve fallen for the matt white premium finish of the newly released Valentina. This finish adds an extravagant feel to the room without costing as much as a solid surface material would. For a seamless look, the matt white is continued in the pop-up plug and the integrated overflow slot.
Decina baths are made from sanitary-grade acrylic, making them easy to clean and maintain. The acrylic is warm to the touch and thermally efficient, so water temperature is maintained for longer in comparison to steel or stone baths.
All this luxury is surprisingly easy to install. Self-supporting feet let the range be shifted almost anywhere, and while some are freestanding, there’s also a selection of gorgeous back-to-wall freestanding baths that can be placed as the name implies — with the bath’s back to the wall, meaning there’s no need for additional hobs or frames.
If you need a touch more luxury, why not invest in a freestanding spa bath? The Elisi is operated by remote control, leaving the bath rim free of knobs and dials for seamless enjoyment. This stunning product has all the stylistic merits of a freestanding bath with the additional hydrotherapy benefit of an inset spa bath. Both these Decina products come with a 10-year warranty.
