I amd refurbing 2 bathrooms that do not have space for separate shower cubicles, so I have no option but to replace like for like.
It is a third floor flat in an old converted house, so I am concerned about load bearing - will the floorboards cope with steel baths ? ( normally put Bette or Kaldewei baths in my own house)
Is it best to use one of the P shaped baths designed for extra room at the top, or am I ok to put a straight edged bath in ? The 30 year old acryclic ones that are coming out are not P shaped, but normal rectangular .What are the advantages of the P shaped bath ? Thanks
We have a p-shaped wrath bath with a hinged shower screen. The advantage is that DH fits in the bath more comfortably. The disadvantage is that it's too big for me to lie back in without sliding down, and it's an absolute pain in the arse to clean without getting in it. Considering DH has had approximately 1 bath in the 3 years we've had it, I don't think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages for us.
We are planning put in an 800mm wide straight bath, I don’t like the look of the L shape at all, and the P shape means you are mostly restricted to a white plastic bath panel. The L shape can be tiled but any I’ve seen don’t look good.
