They have entered the interior design arena offering features and benefits that cannot be overlooked.

Modern freestanding bathtubs are timeless investment pieces – making a style statement that demands our attention. As times and technology have changed, acrylic freestanding baths have kept up to beautifully complement 21st-century living. Due to the nature of acrylic material and its manufacturing process, modern bathtubs made from this material offer variety in shape and colour, easy maintenance and design beauty. When it comes to choosing a modern bathtub – an acrylic freestanding bath will tick a lot of design boxes.

Let’s get pragmatic

From a practical point of view, acrylic baths score many points. They are an affordable, lightweight option and easy to install. From a maintenance aspect, acrylic is non-porous, easy to clean and hygienic. In fact, acrylic modern bathtubs are resistant to most cleaning products. Acrylic has received a bad rap for scratching easily over time, but any scratches are easy to repair or polish out. When it comes to making a decision, that is quite a few boxes ticked!

Let’s get touchy-feely

Acrylic is an ideal material for modern bathtubs as it is smooth, glossy and warm to the touch. There is something sumptuous about immersing yourself in a tub that embraces you with warmth as you lie back and relax. Acrylic bathtubs offer good heat retention properties allowing you to soak for longer. As winter approaches, this definitely ticks an extra box.

Let’s get sturdy

There’s a myth that acrylic baths are not strong. That myth is easy to dispel as the manufacturing process and technology ensure that acrylic modern bathtubs will be the focal point of your bathroom for years to come. The acrylic layers are crosslinked or reinforced with fibreglass, and usually, have a wooden baseboard for added rigidity. These bathtubs are tough, strong and durable.
