Timeless and elegant
Slipper baths, also known as roll-top baths, are a classic design element of Victorian period bathroom design. With their elegant and timeless design, slipper baths have become a popular choice for homeowners looking to add a touch of luxury and elegance to their bathrooms. Known for its distinctive shape, which is characterized by a raised back and a gently curved interior, this design provides a comfortable and supportive place to relax, while also adding a touch of sophistication to the bathroom.
Claw Foot Baths
All in the details
Closely related to the slipper bath is the Victorian claw foot bath. Curved in style, the claw foot bath features intricate and decorative claw feet that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Elevated off the floor, the distinctive design of this Victorian bath is said to have been inspired by similar trends in Victorian furniture that originated in Holland in the 1800s. Originally made from cast iron and painted, modern versions of the Victorian clawfoot bath are usually constructed from lightweight and heat-retaining acrylic, making it a much more practical and affordable option for those looking to recreate a Victorian style bathroom.
Bateau and Boat Baths
For opulence and relaxation
Boat baths, also known as 'Bateau Baths', are a type of freestanding bathtub that were popular during the Victorian era and continue to be a popular choice for those seeking a Victorian style bathroom design. The name 'boat bath' or 'bateau bath' (bateau being the French word for boat) comes from the distinctive shape of these tubs, which resemble the hull of a boat. Typically symmetrical with both ends sloping and allowing for reclining at either end, boat baths can be found in a variety of materials, with modern versions of the style most commonly made from acrylic. They can range in size from more compact options to grand, opulent freestanding baths. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, boat baths are also appreciated for their deep basins, which allow for full immersion and a luxurious bathing experience. Today, boat baths are a popular choice for those looking to recreate the charm of the Victorian bathroom and serve as a beautiful centerpiece in a bathroom design, adding character and style to the space.
