At Reuter, you'll find freestanding baths in almost 1,000 designs, for example modern and purist as well as nostalgic baths on feet. They are produced by renowned brands such as Villeroy & Boch, Duravit, treos, Bette, Kaldewei and Tellkamp. We would like to present our range in more detail and advise you on what to consider when purchasing a freestanding bath.
1. Ensure you have Enough Space
In order to be able to move around the bath, you should plan an open area of approximately 55 centimetres around the bath. This gives a 180 x 90 cm bath an area of 290 x 200 cm. For larger baths the area increases accordingly.
All is not lost if you have a small bathroom. Corner or space-saving baths are available. Or built-in baths. Nobody likes putting their bath in the corner though. The majority of freestanding baths are large enough to accommodate two people.
2. What Shape Bath to Choose?
In terms of basic shape, you can choose from oval, rectangular or round freestanding baths. These do not have to stand naked like their predecessors though. They are available as built-in baths and can be covered in tiles, marble or even wood. Or with a suitable panel.
The shape of the inside does not always match the outside and the outside does not always represent the inside. You should bear this in mind when choosing a freestanding bath. Most smaller baths are more spacious inside than they first appear. Unfortunately, this can also work the other way round.
