Hands up: who else has fought about not wanting to sit at the tap end at least once in their life?
I certainly have, and so, I’m sure, have many others among us. Rightly so – nobody wants any sort of brassware digging into their back or shoulders while you’re actively trying to relax. It’s just so counterintuitive, not to mention the cause – rather than the resolution – for a new crick in your neck.
Luckily, double-ended baths are very much a thing. And not only are they incredibly comfortable, both for solo bathers and those sharing with a loved one, they are also effortlessly stylish. After all, having the tap end placed in the middle allows you to think about all sorts of brassware ideas. A cool floorstanding bath filler? Maybe a unique wall-mounted design? Yes please!
Double-ended baths also open up another bonus: more space for toiletries, plus the option to add some extra storage or furniture. How about a small table to place your laptop or tablet, so you can watch a film while having a soak? Or a waterproof speaker, to play your favourite tunes?
The options are endless, and that includes the style choices, too – so here are some of my favourite designs of late…
