Why choose one bath type over another, buying criteria and how you actually go about choosing the right bath for you. There is plenty to learn from this episode.
Different Types of Baths
Hob/ Inset Bath
Types of finishes available and advantages of each
Cast Iron- also known as pressed steel. There are different quality options available for this type of finish.
NB Kaldewei is a German manufacturer producing pressed steel that is stain resistant, scratch resistant and UV resistant. They also offer a 30 year warranty.
Acrylic- This material has improved a lot over the last 10-15 years and is now manufactured using sanitary grade acrylic, which prevents the material from turning yellow.
Solid Surface- A lot of freestanding baths are made from solid surface. This material is similar to stone, where minerals are crushed and mixed with resin.
Limestone Bath- A luxury and beautiful material.
