Built-In Bathtubs – Beyond Mere Functionality

built-in bathtubs

Contemporary built-in bathtubs are making a welcome style-statement in the master and family bathroom – offering comfort and luxury. They have come into their own and transcended mere functionality to become a beautiful feature in your private sanctuary.

When it comes to inspiration for your bathroom, whether you are exploring a showroom or browsing through a design catalogue, a bathtub will always be the main element and starting point for any bathroom scheme.

Spoilt for Choice with River Range’s Built-in Bathtubs

Whatever your style – be it modern, contemporary, classic, traditional, vintage or edgy – River Range’s built-in bath range will appeal to homeowners of all shapes and sizes. From the spaciously designed Amazon, to the Congo, with its rounded sophistication and curvy lines, right through to the gently sloped back Mississippi, a luxurious and relaxing bath time experience awaits.  

Seamlessly fitting into small apartments, right up to grand mansions, our ergonomically designed cross-linked acrylic built-in baths offer the homeowner a tantalizing blend of quality, versatility and style. With an endless range of creative options for the exterior – from marble and wood to mosaics and tiles – your built-in bath will be a beautiful and personalised focal point, adding colour and texture to the space. Once you have made your choice, all you have to do is sit back, soak and relax.

Beyond the Beauty to the Benefits of Built-in Bathtubs

  • Spatial considerations: Built-in baths offer wonderful flexibility when it comes to efficient use of space in bathrooms of any size. They come in all lengths and depths. To maximise space in smaller bathrooms, built-in bathtubs offer the dual purpose of a classic shower/tub combination. They also take up less floor space than freestanding baths and offer nifty storage for bath time essentials with their built-in ledges.
  • Safety considerations: From a safety point of view, built-in baths are a practical choice for families with small babies and toddlers as well as for the elderly. They are more sturdy and are generally easier to get into and out of. For the safety conscious, these bath installations are a wise and pragmatic design choice.
  • Budget considerations: In terms of pricing, built-in baths tend to be more budget friendly as they only have one finished side. This then affords you the creative space to go to town on cladding finishes and other bathroom designs elements, creating a truly personalised bathroom space. 
  • Cleaning considerations: Built-in baths win hands down in the maintenance department. It is much easier to clean around a built-in bath than the entire surface of a freestanding bath. With less scrubbing and more pampering, it affords you maximum time to soak and relax in a candlelit bubble bath. View our guide to efficient Installation and care for acrylic baths.
  • Style considerations: River Range is confident that our bathtubs will leave you spoilt for choice. From sleek and curvy to graceful, there is a style that is just right for you. Have a look at our latest newcomer, the Yukon built-in bath, which we featured in a recent blog. For further design impact, the addition of bathtub mixers and accessories create bespoke statement pieces that will definitely enhance your built-in bathtub. The Ingot range of bathroom accessories beautifully complements any River Range bathtub.

Acrylic Modern Bathtubs that Adapt to Your Lifestyle Needs

modern bathtubs

Acrylic modern bathtubs, whether freestanding, built-in or corner units, are winning concepts in the world of bathtub design. The modern acrylic bathtub is a far cry from the original bathtub, designed by John Michael Kohler in 1883, who innovatively up-cycled a cast-iron horse trough by adding four decorative feet to the bottom of it and covering it in an enamel finish. The evolution of the modern acrylic freestanding bath has added affordable beauty and style to the contemporary bathroom, offering a myriad of benefits.

Adapting to your Lifestyle Needs

If you are renovating or designing a bathroom from scratch, the decision of which bathtub to install is always greater than simple aesthetics. It considers the functionality of the design, and the longevity of the modern bathtub you want to install while keeping budget constraints in mind. The ultimate advantage of a modern acrylic bathtub is the flexibility that it offers with regards to size and dimensions. They are available in a variety of shapes and sizes to adapt to any spatial constraints.

Built-in, Freestanding or both…

Whether you prefer an acrylic freestanding bath, a built-in bath or a corner bath, there are ample products on the market that will fit your specific design and use needs. An acrylic freestanding bath combines sculptural design and placement flexibility while corner and built-in bathtubs require framing, and need to be encased and tiled. Our previous blog article on the recently launched Yukon freestanding and built-in bathtub highlighted the ability of a single acrylic model to serve as both a built-in and freestanding bathtub to meet the homeowner’s needs. Besides their striking high gloss finish and luxurious, smooth, surface, modern bathtubs made from acrylic material have excellent heat retaining properties which allow you to soak in comfort for much longer.

Uncompromising Adaptability and Flexibility

If you desire enduring quality, distinguished longevity, adaptability and visual appeal in any size bathroom, then look no further than River Range’s acrylic modern bathtubs. Our ergonomically designed styles and various shapes and sizes are developed to suit your needs. River Range offers a bespoke selection of freestanding baths, built-in baths and a variety of corner bath configurations ranging from modern to classic designs.

Built-In Baths – Introducing the “Yukon” Bathtub from River Range

It is always exciting when there is a new kid on the block. At River Range, we are proud to welcome Yukon, the latest addition to our built-in baths range; big brother to the popular Tugela model. The Yukon is available as a built-in or freestanding bathtub in 1700mm or 1800mm length configurations.

In a previous Blog, ideas for built-in baths to dramatically improve functionality and relaxation were highlighted with regard to shaping your bathroom environment when it comes to design efficiency and inspiration. The River Range Yukon and Tugela built-in bathtubs have arrived in style, prompting the world of bathroom ware to sit up and take note with its new design, value for money and 10-year warranty.

‘Yukon’ have the Bathroom of your Dreams

The sleek, straight lines of the Yukon and Tugela built-in baths offer ergonomic comfort and affordable luxury. Sophistication has certainly not been compromised in favour of functional built-in design options. From a purely practical perspective, built-in baths tend to be more economical when it comes to budget and spatial considerations; mostly due to the fact that only the exterior part of the tub is embellished with the finishing.

This, however, is not a disadvantage, as the homeowner gains the extra freedom and creativity to personally bespoke cladding finishes – such as tiles, natural stone, mosaics or wood – the fairy godmother of bathroom finishes. Take the opportunity to exercise your creative license with a built-in bathtub transformation that refreshes and updates your bathroom to a whole new level. Built-in baths are also quite happy being the understudy, giving you further flexibility in choosing attractive bathroom fixtures and design elements to take centre stage in your bathroom.

The Allure of a Corner Bathtub this Winter Season

corner bathtub

A corner bathtub is perhaps the most intelligent way to save space while adding a unique character to your bathroom space. All around us, it seems winter has made an earlier-than-expected arrival, making the appeal of a relaxing and luxurious hot bath all the more alluring. With the cold season looming, the bathtub becomes an enticing and relaxing retreat that may just become your favourite new spot in the house. In our previous Blog, we encouraged homeowners to make the most of the smaller bathroom in your house. A corner bath is an excellent design choice that blends well into any bathroom space with a generous incentive of comfort, stylish looks and durability to match.

The Benefits of investing in a Corner Bathtub

Maximise the Space in your Bathroom

Making a small bathroom work can be frustrating, especially if you don’t know where to start. A corner bathtub is a perfect cornerstone (pardon the pun!) to solving your bathroom problems. Available in the three unique ranges, Euphrates, Angara and Parana, corner bathtubs ensure that you can have the benefit and functionality of a full bathroom without the risk of cluttering it. Corner bathtubs bring finesse to the room. With the essential part of the bathroom neatly tucked away, the centre of the space opens up, allowing for a free flow throughout the room and offering more spatial opportunities to add extra features. Now you have space for the shelves and accessories that you need in order to complete your dream bathroom.

A Refreshing new Visual Layout to the Bathroom

Installing a corner bathtub offers a different feel to the usual linear look that most homeowners take with their bathrooms. Being the room where you ready yourself to take on the day ahead, and the place where you unwind after a long day, your bathroom should be refreshing and aesthetically pleasing. The Angara corner bath from River Range is a luxurious rounded option that offers both functionality and style by utilizing that empty corner to bring charm into your lavatory. Leave the monotony of straight lines in the past.

Ideal Space to add a Shower

Who says a corner bathtub should be just that? With revamped access to water and drainage pipes, seize the opportunity to merge your new corner-piece with an adjoining shower with ease. It can conjure up all sorts of combinations to turn your bathing area into your ideal personal space. How incredible does that sound?

Make the Most of the Smaller Bathroom in your Home

corner bathtub

Creating a stellar design idea for the smaller bathroom in your home may seem daunting from the offset. Naturally, one is restricted to space and the ability to accessorise the bathroom ahead of merely installing the functional requirements. However, we encourage you to take a different view of this room. In our previous Blog, we shared some tips towards achieving radical bathroom transformation in your house. For SA homeowners and DIY enthusiasts who love a challenging project, transforming the smallest bathroom house is that ideal opportunity to let your design juices flow, get clever on storage solutions and introduce a new built-in or corner bath ‘focal point’ to the room. Before you dive into the project, check out a few tips that will help you along the way.

Give your Built-In Bath a new lease of life

Perhaps you’re living in an apartment complex, and possess a built-in bath that has clearly seen better days. Tired of scrubbing stains that just won’t go away? It sounds like the perfect time to upgrade to a sparkling new built-in bath that truly satisfies and relaxes. Built-in baths have become more sophisticated than you think – choosing the right model helps to merge the overall theme of your bathroom refurbishment. If you prefer a linear bath with defined edges, the river-inspired Indus and Tugela models from the River Range collection provide a great base theme for the smaller bathroom that enhances the flow of your space, while offering a comfortable bathing experience for the whole family.

Installing a Corner Bath to free up space

If you are trying to decide between a bath or shower in the smaller bathroom, a corner bath (with the possible addition of a shower) might just be the perfect fit that cleverly opens up more space. It’s a great solution for those who don’t have the luxury of large space but yearn for a solution that provides maximum comfort and entices them to use the area a lot more.

By combining a River Range corner bath such as the Angara or Parana models with a connecting shower head, you can turn/rejuvenate that mundane smaller bathroom of yours into quite a stylish home spa.

Radical Bathroom Transformation

Summer is slowly clearing the way for Autumn’s arrival, and with it comes a transformation that creeps into all aspects of our lives. As homeowners search to mark the occasion, often a bathroom transformation can rejuvenate your living space and motivate a fresh mindset and renewed positivity. In our previous Blog, we added our practical contributions to responsible Bath Water usage in S.A. with reference to the Day Zero crisis in Cape Town and beyond. We trust you’ve transformed your water usage habits and look forward to the benefit of lower Water bills and greener gardens going forward. Perhaps it is time to reward your diligence with a radical bathroom transformation that may just promote bathing time to the most satisfying and relaxing moment of the day.


Transform your Bathtub into the Centerpiece of your Space.

If you reminisce with your grandparents’ generation, they will remind you the cold freestanding tub in the middle of a gloomy bathroom was a far cry from luxury. This area of bathroom design has come full circle and is trending more than ever. Freestanding bathtubs are associated with tranquility, luxury, and serenity. Style and shape have morphed into bold and daring expressions by modern designers. Clear illustrations are evident in the Rio Grande and Rhine Slipper models from River Range’s Freestanding Bath range, incorporating a distinctive round slipper shape complete with thin edges. In addition to the stylish transformation, the choice of material, acrylic, ensures that your bathtub enjoys exceptionally heat retention, doesn’t scratch easily, is relatively lightweight and spotlessly maintained with little more than warm water and mild soap.


Revitalize that Corner Space!

Corners are undoubtedly the most under-utilized spaces in most modern bathrooms. When square meters are at a premium, many homeowners cannot equate the functionality, let alone the luxurious transformation, of investing time and resources into transforming this space. Truth be known, it is a lot easier than you think. Corner showers, sinks and vanity shelves regularly spring up in urban bathroom makeovers. With a natural right angle at your disposal, we believe a built-in corner bath is a seamless solution, which can turn your mundane bath space into a spa-like enclave. Citing examples such as River Range’s Euphrates and Parana models – freedom is allowed to play with shape while adding luxury, spaciousness and a whole lot more fun to your new favorite corner of the home.

River Range bathtubs are a classic range of quality bathtubs manufactured from the best cross-linked acrylic available on the market.

Freestanding Bathtubs – Creating your dream Acrylic Bathroom on a Budget

freestanding bathtubs

Whether you have purchased your dream home, or have set your mind to that long overdue renovation, you will have inevitably been inspired by the idea of remodelling your bathroom space with acrylic freestanding bathtubs design. The best news is; not only do acrylic bathtubs give your bathroom a beautiful and luxurious facelift, they also offer style, sophistication and functionality at an affordable price, complemented with matching taps and toilets. Put simply, one can save thousands, while acquiring a natural finish aesthetic.

Innovation in bathroom design has come a long way in recent years. Designers, architects and manufacturers understand the homeowners’ desire to escape to the tranquillity of their bathing retreat, soaking away all the stresses of the outside world. However, not many of us possess the interior budget of a five-star hotel. With the emergence of acrylic freestanding bathtubs, one can completely transform the bathroom into a functional and aesthetic space at a fraction of the cost.

Why choose an Acrylic Bath

As a budget-priced option for bathroom renovations, acrylic bathrooms offer a host of advantages. Here are our Top 3 Benefits of choosing acrylic as your freestanding bathtubs material of preference.

Minimal Stains

For everyday use, prospective buyers of bathtubs, taps and toilets will be encouraged to know that acrylic surfaces are generally stain resistant. They can easily maintain their beautiful glass-like finish over a lifespan of 30 years plus, with regular care and maintenance.  

Retains Heat

As a lightweight solution, acrylic tubs perform surprisingly well at retaining heat. Its thermal qualities allow warm water to maintain its warmth without a quick loss of heat through the acrylic and fibreglass walls and base.

Acrylic will sustain its colour through the product’s lifespan

Something you might not know about acrylic is that the colouring process takes place while the product is still in its raw mould state. With the absence of an outer coat of paint, the colour is evenly distributed, maintains its beautiful shine, and will not fade over time.
