Our Guide to Baths and Spas

Our Guide
Baths & Spas

If you are remodeling your bathroom and wish to add a new bath, you can choose from different bath types and spas that are available in the market. A new bath tub can transform a purely functional space into a stunning soaking spot. Here are some bath types that you can choose from depending on your taste and budget.

Freestanding Baths


Make the perfect splash with a free standing bath. These baths have plenty of area around and beneath, making the room look airy and larger than it actually is. Due to their design and style, they don't require a frame to support their structure, making installation easier. A free standing bath is a perfect luxury that can transform your daily ritual into a relaxing retreat that lets you wash away your cares and unwind at the end of a hectic day.

Porcelain Baths


Porcelain bath tubs are a common fixture in older homes, yet their unique vintage charm means that they are as much in demand today also. Their aesthetics aside, porcelain enamel baths are easy to clean and their lustrous finish lasts a lifetime. These baths are stamped out of steel and are finished with a layer of porcelain. When looked after, the finish is incredibly durable, so it is recommended that a non-abrasive liquid cleanser is used to clean them.

Acrylic Baths


Acrylic bath tubs are practical and high on utility. The vacuum-formed acrylic sheets are reinforced with fibreglass to make the tub resistant to cracking and chipping. These bath tubs are relatively inexpensive and light in weight so you don’t have to worry about the strength of your floor.

Spa Baths


Indulge in the epitome of relaxation with a spa bath, where tranquility meets rejuvenation. The key features of a spa bath redefine your bathing experience, offering a luxurious escape within the confines of your home. Immerse yourself in the therapeutic benefits of hydrotherapy as powerful jets strategically positioned within the bath massage and soothe tired muscles.

Care & Cleaning of cast stone baths


- For regular cleaning use a mild detergent. We recommend that you use a non abrasive bathroom or kitchen household cleaner for your everyday cleaning as constantly using abrasives may cause the disappearance of the satin look over a long period of time.

- For tougher stains use a cleaner like JIF (only for matt surfaces – gloss, consult your retailer). Should you need to clean your bath with an abrasive cleaner, polishing with a car polish or gumption will restore the luster in your bath.

- Always use a clean, soft clothRinse completely after washing and dry with a soft cloth; change your rinse water frequently

- Don't use an excessive amount of detergent or soap as it may cause streaks

- Do not use products which contain lemon juice, vinegar or other acids which may be contained in conventional bathroom cleaners or grout removersIf using dyes such as hair dye, immediately and very thoroughly rinse the bath so that NO trace is visible

- When not in use dust with a non-treated dry dusterIf in doubt contact your retailer.
