I would thoroughly recommend TWThomas. We are pleased with the quality of the products and they offered a very high standard of service throughout. They planned the whole bathroom, assisted in the selection of products and organised the installation of the wetroom. Definitely worth a trip to their showroom, the best by far in Swansea!
A freestanding bath is the ultimate in luxury for your bathroom space and adds an instant sense of glamour and style. If you are looking for immediate impact, then freestanding baths offer the ideal style statement. They are elegant and lavish and can easily form the centrepiece for any modern bathroom or traditional bathroom.
If you wish to install a freestanding bath, there are just a few things you might wish to consider. You need to think about your space and how a freestanding bath would fit within your overall bathroom design. Once upon a time you would have required a huge bathroom, but now that is certainly not the case. Different styles and sizes are available to suit most reasonable sized spaces. And they don’t necessarily have to form the central focus of your room either. Free standing baths can be fitted more subtly along walls or in alcoves to give more flexibility in the design process.
In terms of style and design, TW Thomas supply a fantastic range of freestanding baths (many of which are on display in our bathroom store). These baths range from modern and contemporary styles to vintage and traditional bathtubs. Any freestanding bath that you choose can be matched with appropriate sanitary-ware to complete a sophisticated look.
Traditional Freestanding Bath Designs
Slipper baths offer period styling and a traditional appeal. Combined with other elements such as clawed feet, they emulate the elegance and drama we associate with statement pieces of furniture. A slipper freestanding bath will have one side of the tub raised a little higher than the other allowing the user to ‘slip’ into luxury.
Roll top baths have a ‘lip’ around the edge as if the top of the bath has been rolled over. This gives the impression of Victorian opulence and sophistication even when produced from more modern (and warmer!) manufacturing material.
Contemporary Freestanding Bath Designs
Modern freestanding baths will often have clean lines and curves. They may even feature more contemporary fixings and unusual shapes to give an overall 21st Century appeal. There are many ‘footless’ designs that rest directly on the floor of the bathroom giving a real spa like quality.
For added impact, your freestanding bath can also be installed on a plinth or platform, placing it firmly as the focal point of your room.

‘We recently had a new bathroom & en-suite from yourselves and just wanted to drop you a line saying how delighted we are with them. The expert advice we received in the showroom with planning the rooms – and the 3D drawings- helped to make choosing the products really easy. We also used your recommended fitter who was excellent. We now have two stunning rooms and would like to thank you for the professional service we received from everybody at T.W.Thomas.’
