Tips for building a new home

Baths and what to look out for!

Mark Bryson - Friday, October 07, 2016

With so many homes being built fast and cheaply these days, we are often spotting design oversights that can really effect the quality of a home.

For example Standalone baths look fantastic but can take up a lot of room. Many builders solve this problem by building the baths very close to walls. It might make the bathroom look bigger but they are nearly impossible to clean behind, especially a water spillage. Any water that is not removed will ultimately create damage such as mould and tile lifting problems.

Our company has a simple rule to avoid this. We install all our standalone baths a minimum of 300mm off any wall to make it easy to clean and maintain.

Standalone baths are a great feature to include in your feature bathroom but make sure they are installed in the correct position.
