There’s nothing quite so impactful in a bathroom as a corner whirlpool bath. Not only do they take up less room, they also provide a unique premium feel that’s really hard to beat. If you’re already sold on the idea of a corner whirlpool bath, there are lots of options open to you. So to make your purchasing choices a little clearer, we’ve put together a checklist of essential things you’ll want to look for when browsing corner whirlpool baths.
1. Consider the logistics of a corner whirlpool bath
The first important factor to consider when you’re reviewing corner whirlpool baths is the differences in the way you’ll use your bath. If you’re used to having a conventional long bath in your bathroom, you must remember that the experience in a corner whirlpool bath will differ. One important factor is the fact that you won’t be able to lie down in most corner whirlpool baths. This is a compromise you may have to make if you want to enjoy the space-saving benefits that only a corner whirlpool bath can offer.
2. Know the dimensions of your bathroom
Some people make the mistake of ordering a whirlpool bath before measuring the bathroom, and this is frequently a big mistake. The reason is that a bathtub actually requires a little more room than you might imagine. For example, to comfortably install a corner whirlpool bath, we actually recommend that you allow at least 700mm of clearance on all sides (except the walls, of course). We find that this buffer of space will give you room to manoeuvre in and out of the bath without bumping into anything. With less clearance than 700mm, you won’t be able to get that true corner whirlpool bath experience – so always measure your dimensions before settling on a new bath!
3. Think you don’t have room?
Think againIf you don’t quite have a corner that’ll fit a corner whirlpool bath, there is another option. We also offer an offset corner whirlpool bath, which is designed to have an increased lengthwise dimension. This means you can still enjoy the benefits of a corner whirlpool bath, even if you have a relatively narrow bathroom. Depending on your height, the offset corner whirlpool bath may actually give you enough space to lie down in your bath too – so you could end up enjoying the best of both worlds! With a little bit of research into the available corner bath options, as well as a clear picture of your available space, you’ll be able to find the perfect whirlpool bath for your home.
