Benefits of a Built-In or Inset Bath
Built in baths or inset bath are perfect for almost any bathroom renovation design, from minimalist to family functional. You can choose from either an island bath, which sits away from the wall in a tiled hob or a four tile flange bath which is installed right against the wall, with wall tiles covering the edge (flange).

They are a common traditional bath style, frequently seen in Australian bathrooms. Choosing a bath is a very personal choice and also comes down to the space you have in your bathroom. We have a few points to help you decide whether a built in bath is the right choice for your bathroom renovation.
Built in baths can be a practical choice for families, they are strong and you have a decent tiled edge to lean on when bathing toddlers and to put things on. They are easy to clean making them low maintenance.
Built-in baths are compact so much easier to fit in a tight bathroom. From a plumbing prospective they are easy to install and easy to rectify issues with drainage should a leak occur in the future.
