There are few things in a home that impress quite as much as a stone freestanding bath. They are the ultimate statement in your bathroom and bring a level of elegance that few other pieces in your home can achieve while giving you maximum enjoyment as you bathe in it.
If now is the time that you have decided to renovate your bathroom, or if you have just moved into that brand new home or dream home, then this is your chance.
An investment in your home, be it redecoration, remodeling or redesign, is something that demands and deserves serious time and attention. Not only will you have to figure out the timing of when things can happen, where you will find your bathroom accessories, materials and whom you will hire for the work, but you must also determine what the budget is, and where priorities lie.
At Mimicocò, we believe that if you are the kind of person who loves spending time in their bathroom grooming, preparing themselves for the outside world, or simply winding down at the end of the day, then when a chance like this comes along, you must consider the bathroom you are about to create, and understand that this is likely going to be the bathroom you will occupy for quite a number of years.
So, let’s say you are exploring the idea of investing in a freestanding bath tub. What do you need to factor in?
1) The weight
It’s fine looking at the product spec and taking note of the weight of the product itself, however, it is imperative that you also factor in the weight when it is full of water, and bearing the additional weight of a body. This is incredibly important because it on its own will weigh quite a bit and so you may have to consider reinforcing the floor beneath it to prevent structural damage.
You will inevitably have to consider whether there is an option out there to suit the space you have, and if so, where you plan to install it, and whether it will be easily maneuvered into place. You might have dreams of bathing beneath the window, however, until you measure up, you won’t know if this is possible.
3) Shape and colour and accessories
Bathtubs come in all shapes and sizes now, so before you buy think about how it will complement the room as you envision it. Also, you will need to have a good idea what bathroom tapware are going to match up adequately that may lend it that extra eye-catching quality.
There are plenty of other considerations that will be pertinent to each individual but these three alone should inspire plenty of thoughts.
