Free-Standing Baths – The Best Addition to Your Guesthouse


Have you recently started setting your plan of opening a guesthouse in motion? Have you found the ideal property and are currently busy planning, building, or renovating the house? Anybody who loves architecture and interior design and has spent some time visualising what their ideal home or guesthouse will look like, knows the impact that free-standing baths can have when it comes to the overall look and feel of the room.

Regardless of your preferred style, whether it is modern, retro, rustic, tropical, eclectic, contemporary, Mediterranean, farmhouse, or mid-century, or the atmosphere you wish to create, free-standing tubs look great in any bathroom. They are the epitome of luxury.

Freestanding Baths

If you are looking for great additions to your guesthouse bathrooms, take a look at the free-standing baths that are available from us at Summer Place. The stylish centrepiece will make all your guests wish that they had your style when it comes to interior design and it will make them never want to leave the beautiful guesthouse you built.

If you own a guesthouse, having free-standing baths could help make your guesthouse a favourite. Many people choose where to stay based on what they prefer aesthetically and whether or not the accommodation has a relaxing atmosphere. And those who want their own free-standing baths but cannot afford them or do not own their own homes yet, can experience the dream when they stay at your guesthouse.

You can work with an interior designer, as well as trusted suppliers of essentials, such as free-standing baths, to help you create the most beautiful place for your guests to relax and unwind in.

Why Do People Love Taking Baths?

When people are visiting a guesthouse, they want to be able to relax fully, and few things are as relaxing as a nice, warm soak in a tub. A lot of people are too busy to take long, relaxing baths in their day to day lives, and you will hear many, especially parents, say that they long for the days when they could still take long, relaxing soaks.

While travelling, they finally get the time to relax, and might want to pick accommodation with a tub that looks like it is located inside a spa.

How Does a Free-Standing Bath Differ from a Standard Model?

So, you have chosen to install a tub, but now you first need to choose between a free-standing tub and a standard one. But what is the difference?

A free-standing tub can stand unaided, unlike a standard variation. It can either be supported by “feet” or sit directly on the floor. If you want to impress your guests, choose a free-standing tub, as they are likely to have a standard one or just a shower at home.

When purchasing from us, our team is with you right from the very first decision that you make about the design of your guesthouse bathroom, all the way to the ultimate installation of your unit. We can install your units neatly and professionally.

What Features Do You Need to Look For?

So, you have decided you want a free-standing bath, but what do you need to look for when choosing one?

  • Look for a tub with enough depth, so that guests can enjoy a deep soak.
  • You want to look for one that is bigger. There are few things as disappointing as preparing for a relaxing soak and then the tub is small and, therefore, uncomfortable to lie in.
  • Choose one that is made from high-quality materials, so that it will last for years to come.
  • If you really want to up the relaxation factor, then choose a free-standing tub with massage jets. Now that is something your guests are not likely to have at home. If they are on holiday, they will not need to travel far for a spa-like experience, and if they are on a business trip, it can help them relax before and/or after an important meeting or presentation.
  • Look for a tub that suits the desired aesthetic of the room. You can talk to an interior designer to get their input on what will work best in your space.
