Traditional Baths

One of the stand out features of any traditional bathroom is the freestanding bath. An ode to an era gone by, the Victorian bath has now become synonymous with traditional style and flair. You’ll notice the designs on this type of bath tends to feature curved lines and softer edges in comparison to their contemporary counterparts – the perfect place to soak for hours on end.
