Plinth baths for a more luxurious bathroom

Snug to the floor, these tubs cut a smart silhouette

Designed to steal the show, and provide a luxuriously deep soak, a well-chosen plinth bath will prove a seriously good investment.

Whether formed from solid stone, classic cast iron or modern composite resin, statement plinth baths are built to impress. The bathroom equivalent of a kitchen island unit, the desirability of statement baths has soared in recent years.

As the backbone of your bathroom, it’s important to give careful consideration to the purchase of your bath. Invest in the best you can afford and don’t be tempted to skimp on quality to ensure that it will last.
