Bath Accessories Buying Guide
Bath Accessories Buying Guide
Welcome to our bath fittings buying guide, where we’ll be giving you all the practical advice and guidance you’ll need when choosing the right bath fittings.
The bath is dead, long live the shower…right?! Actually no. In fact, according to one YouGov survey, 14% of Brits enjoy a daily bath. Even for the majority of us that prefer to save an indulgent soak for a rainy day, 65% of people claim to luxuriate in the bubbles for more than 10 minutes. As you can see, the bath is still an extremely important part of British culture. It’s where we relax, revive and escape our busy routines. Long may it continue we say!
Of course, if you thought that all you needed to complement your bath was a loofah and a rubber duck, we’re sorry to be the ones to have to break it to you. Because there are just a few essential items that, as a proud bath owner, you should buy to get the most out of your bathing experience.
Thankfully, we’ve got all the necessary bath fittings you’ll ever need here at Bathroom Takeaway.
Choosing The Right Bath Fittings
Hopefully, by now, you’ve chosen your perfect bath and you’re ready to dive right in. But, before you can do so there are a few minor details to take care of first before you even dip your toes in. There are several different fittings for baths that you’ll need, which include bath panels, wastes and screens. In this guide, we’ll talk you through each type of bathroom fitting’s features and benefits.
If you’ve opted for anything other than a freestanding bath, then it’s an absolute certainty that you’ll need some bath panels. These functional types of bath fittings play a pivotal role in hiding unsightly plumbing and pipework, as well as helping your bath to blend seamlessly with the rest of your bathroom décor. Bath panels come in a range of lengths and thicknesses to suit your requirements.
We have a comprehensive selection of front and end bath panels to suit all tastes. For that classic, clean look that will dovetail perfectly with any bathroom suite, our range of crisp, white acrylic bath panels is the ideal choice. Or if you’d rather the warmth of a natural-looking wood effect, we can supply MDF panels fully wrapped in walnut or grey wood finishes.
Bath wastes, the plug and pipework where your bath water inevitably pass through, have come a long way in recent years. Yes, you can still get the traditional plug and chain basin waste that we’re all familiar with. In fact, you’ll find a whole range of these types of bath fittings, finished in an easy-clean, highly polished chrome or even gold plating for a truly decadent effect.
However, you’ll also find a new breed of bath wastes at your disposal. Like supremely stylish and subtle press top bath wastes. These innovative wastes rely on a spring action to pop open and closed as you desire. Freestanding roll top style baths require a sophisticated waste and you’ll find the exposed chrome pipework of our dedicated pop-up bath wastes offer the perfect accompaniment.
No offence to shower curtains but they have a nasty habit of harbouring germs and tend to acquire a mouldy fringe at their water-soaked edges. Bath screens not only offer a more hygienic alternative but they also look incredible too. For preventing puddles of shower spray, a designer bath screen really is a must-have item for any bathroom sporting a straight bath setup.
Our minimalist, frameless bath screens are made from durable 5 mm glass and come with polished chrome reversible fittings for a stylish and flexible installation. The 3M Scotchgard™ glass features clever water-repelling properties, which protect your screen from limescale, oil and dirt. No matter what you throw at it, your screen will always come up shining.
