Bath considerations

drying space by bathWhen selecting a new bath, give consideration to the spacial requirements as well as the plumbing.

Mark out the position on the floor. Is there enough room for you to get in and out? Is there enough room for the door to open and close without having to do a jig to get in or out of the room? Is there enough room to stand and dry yourself after bathing?

Types of bath

There are a huge number of styles available as well as different materials and qualities:
