Our guide to freestanding baths

19th July 2018


A freestanding bath is one of our most sought after bathroom products and truly epitomises a sense of sanctuary and relaxation in a bathroom. With so many styles to choose from, we appreciate that it can be tricky to find the right fit for your bathroom. So our designers have collated their top picks, as an initial guide to help you in selecting your ideal freestanding bath.


Style: Traditional

Brand: Thomas Crapper

Name: Leighton Bath

Cost: ££££

Thomas Crapper is renowned for high-quality traditional products, and this beautiful freestanding Leighton bath is no exception. The bath encompasses a traditional roll-top edge combined with a more contemporary base.

Our Verdict: Looking for outstanding quality in a traditional and quintessentially British design? Then this statement bath is for you.

Our Verdict: This bath is a stunning and sleek sculptural statement piece to transform any bathroom.

Style: Brass/Copper

Brand: Hurlingham 

Name: Brass Bateau

Cost: ££££

The Brass Bateau bath from Hurlingham is a graceful shape and hand beaten from the highest quality brass, giving it that extra feel of class and sophistication.

Our Verdict: Brass is very much on-trend and Hurlingham have created a bath which is stylishly vintage, they can also paint the plinth or bath body in any paint colour or style of your choosing.

Style: Back to wall bath

Brand: Waters Baths of Ashbourne  

Name: River - back-to-wall bath

Cost: £££

This modern back-to-wall bath is hugely practical in its design as well as being a strong and stylish contemporary statement in the bathroom.

Our Verdict: This bath design is an incredibly stylish and practical option for anyone needing a wall fitted option, and ideal for a shower fixture. You can also personalise your bath by customising the outsell from the stunning Farrow & Ball colour pallet.

Style: Bespoke painted bath 

Brand: Imperial 

Name: King Charles bath in blue

Cost: ££££

Imperial offer a bespoke painting service on all of their Cast Iron Baths and with over 170 colours to choose from, we think their colour options are one of the best!

Our Verdict: We love that these stunning bath tubs, which now come in such a variety of colours, have given our designers plenty of pop colours to play with and offer our clients something truly bespoke.

Style: Bespoke painted bath and shower 

Brand: Burlington and Drench

Name: Admiral (bath), Decor (shower) in yellow rail colour

Cost: £££

Our team here at Parker Bathrooms painted this freestanding Burlington bath in vibrant yellow, and the team at Drench created a colour match shower screen, creating a beautifully retro styled bathroom.

Our Verdict: Matching both the freestanding bath and shower screen in a pop colour, such as yellow, has created a real WOW factor in this bathroom.
