The current issue of Living Etc features the Sydney home of Camila Peters-Quayle. Camila is the lucky owner of a vintage 1930s corner bathtub (September issue, p.76), and loves to spend time soaking in it after a hard day at work. Corner baths are ideal for bathtime junkies, giving plenty of room to relax, and usually having built-in seats as well. They are not just for large bathrooms – with careful planning a corner bathtub can create a big relaxation zone in a smaller bathroom. If your bathroom can accommodate the footprint of a corner tub, why not think about adding extra luxury features such as whirlpool jets or even a steam cabin? This post gives examples of some of the variations on corner bathtubs you might want to consider.
Carron Tranquility Corner Bathtub
The gentle curves of the Carron Tranquility corner bath are ideal for creating a simple, serene corner bathing area. The standard model is made from sturdy 5mm acrylic and has a twenty year guarantee. However, you can upgrade the bath by adding a Carronite coating which increases its strength and extends the warranty period to thirty years.
Annecy C008 Whirlpool Bath
The Annecy C008 whirlpool bath has whirlpool jets as well as back bubble jets. As if the hydrotherapy massage weren’t relaxing enough, the C008 corner bath is also equipped with underwater lighting which can change colour according to your mood. There is a built-in headrest and FM radio for extra comfort.
Portland Whirlpool Bath and Steam Shower Cabin
The Portland corner cabin combines the luxury of a steam shower and a whirlpool bath in a single unit. It comes with a monsoon shower, 3kW steam generator, built-in FM radio with input for CD or MP3, built-in seat and remote control. The steam cabin gives the Portland a more imposing presence than most whirlpool baths, so it would dominate a smaller bathroom.
