There is absolutely nothing in this world that is more relaxing than a beautiful, hot bath at the end of a long day. Having a bathtub isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but here are 5 reasons why we think it should be!
A Hot Bath Can Be Therapeutic
There are so many therapeutic benefits of a hot bath, from assisting with blood circulation to easing muscular and joint pain. A warm bath can also help soothe irritated skin; Rumor has it that Cleopatra bathed in milk and honey to keep her skin soft and youthful!

A Bubbly Bath for the Kids!
A no-brainer, but most children love a good bubble bath! If you are in the midst of a bathroom renovation and you’re planning on including a new tub, make sure to select one that’s not overly deep. Higher tubs can be very difficult for the kiddies or for the elderly to climb out of, so keep your bath at a reasonable height the whole family can be comfortable with.
Instant WOW Factor in Your Bathroom
A luxurious bath tub creates instant WOW factor in your bathroom. If you have the space, consider a freestanding bath: there are several different sizes available from the teeny tiny tubs to super large luxurious ones! Ensure you have allowed enough room around the tub to allow for cleaning and complete the look with a freestanding bath filler for ultimate in luxury.
Get a Better Night’s Sleep
A hot bath in the evening is proven to help you have a better night’s rest. The simple process of allowing yourself that little bit of ‘Me-Time’ to relax and switch off while in the tub is amazing enough however, as discussed above, the therapeutic benefits will also relax and soothe your body, setting you up for a great night’s rest! Add a few drops of your favourite essential oils to really create a soothing, relaxing experience!
Finally, if you are improving your home with the intention of selling it, including a bathtub will greatly increase the overall appeal of the house. By eliminating a tub altogether from the design, you are limiting your potential buyers to people who don’t like baths. By including a tub, you are reaching a much broader audience: Families with children, Couples expecting children and of course, people like me who spend at least one hour in the tub every night!
