Depending on the size and to some extent, the features you select, a corner bath can be a remarkable space-saving addition to your bathroom. It’s not necessarily the case that this type of tub occupies much more floor space than any of its built-in counterparts – traditional rectangular or oval bathtubs.
A Corner Bath’s Space-Maximising Configuration
Other bath shapes can sometimes be narrower than a corner bath but may take up more floor space along their lengths. However, once installed flush against two walls, a corner unit tends to occupy a square-shaped floor space. This square configuration tends to provide a maximised open, free floor surface within the room, thereby offering a smart, space-saving solution in a smaller bathroom.
Enjoy a Relaxing Bath Experience
Because the space inside a corner unit spans its internal cross-corner section, it’s not significantly shorter than other tub types. This bath design invites you to stretch out and enjoy a relaxing bathtime soak, particularly if the bathtub features jets. Typically, a Summer Place corner unit is wider than other bathtub models, which adds to its spaciousness, comfort and freedom of movement, as well as the opulent appeal of a luxurious corner bath.
Considerations When Choosing Your Corner Unit
Several factors are important to consider before deciding on a corner bath for your bathroom. Firstly, the bathroom should be large enough to accommodate a bathtub. Some tight bathrooms only have enough space to house a shower. However, keep in mind that by fitting a fold-away shower screen and an optional shower head or hand-shower attachment, it’s possible to incorporate a shower in a corner unit.
Secondly, it’s essential to have sufficient clear and open floor space to access and exit the bath safely and with ease. A surrounding clear floor space of about 60cm to 76cm is ideal; a slightly narrower margin of approximately 53cm may be fine too.
