Go Big or Go Home: Top Tips for Large Whirlpool Bath Buyers

Go Big or Go Home: Top Tips for Large Whirlpool Bath Buyers

When you’re on the hunt for a new whirlpool bath, one of the first things you’ll need to decide on is size. Tiny, huge, or somewhere in between? Well, you’ll find tubs to match every bathroom size here at The Whirlpool Bath Shop, but in today’s blog post we wanted to focus on the larger end of the scale. If you’ve got plenty of space in your bathroom and you need a whirlpool bath to fill it, this article is for you. Here are our top tips for large whirlpool bath buyers.

Tip #1: Measure the available space in your bathroom (twice)

The term “large” can be somewhat nebulous, and a whirlpool bath isn’t a small investment, so it makes sense to ensure your chosen bath will fit. While our large whirlpool bath range can vary in size from 1500mm in length all the way up to 2000mm and beyond, we’d strongly recommend that you measure the space you have available at least twice. Doing so will mean your installation will be a breeze – and you’ll have a much easier time whittling down your large whirlpool bath options.

Tip #2: Consider how much you’ll use your large whirlpool bath 

There’s no doubt that a large whirlpool bath can be an extravagant purchase, but having said that, there are still ways to save money. Even the largest whirlpool bath can still be affordable. For example, our large whirlpool bath range starts at just over £800, but the top-end of the collection reaches almost £4000 – so there’s lot of room to manoeuvre. If you’re looking for cost-effectiveness in your new tub, we recommend considering how much use you’ll get out of it. This will help you decide how best to budget your purchase.

Tip #3: Choose a shape that complements your bathroom’s dimensions

Like many whirlpool baths, a large design doesn’t mean you’re restricted to the classic yet conventional rectangular shape. In fact, the shape of your large whirlpool bath is one of the most important decisions you’ll need to make, because it will play a large part in the final aesthetics of your bathroom. For example, if you choose a large corner whirlpool bath, you’ll still enjoy a spacious soak, but will save space in the centre of the room. Likewise, a large freestanding whirlpool bath brings benefits of its own, but may affect your layout in other places. Food for thought!

Tip #4: Think about buying a large whirlpool bath for two 

Finally, let’s consider something that may not have crossed your mind: the idea of a large whirlpool bath for two. Of course, traditional bathtubs tend to be “single-seaters”, so to speak – but who said you had to stick to the traditional? We offer several different large whirlpool bath options which will allow enough space (and sometimes even seating!) for at least two people to enjoy the relaxing bubbles of a spa bath. If this idea hadn’t crossed your mind yet, it’s certainly worth a few minutes of your time to consider.
