When space is at a premium or when you’re simply tired of familiar shapes and want to make your bathroom look different, a corner bath is a great way to go. At UK Bathrooms, we’re proud to be able to bring you this excellent selection of cleverly designed baths that fit into corners in different ways, some of them saving space, some of them making interesting use of space to create fantastic places in which to relax.
UK Bathrooms stocks every permutation you could ever need. In this section you will find our comprehensive selection of Corner Baths, Offset Baths & Space Saving Baths:
Corner baths can offer an interesting layout if you’re updating your bathroom design, as well as providing a practical option if you’re short on space. At UK Bathrooms, we pride ourselves on this excellent selection of baths that fit into corners in a variety of well-designed and elegant ways.
While some of them are designed to save space first and foremost, others intentionally make interesting use of space to provide you with somewhere unique and beautiful to relax. We offer several high-quality brands, including Villeroy & Boch, Kaldewei and Carron.
You tend to see Corner Bathtubs designed to have a seating area on the design. The seat has great practical applications, it can be very handy when bathing the kids or pets, and it’s a great space for anyone shaving their legs, or if you have trouble getting in or out of the bath.
Corner Baths are designed to optimise the space they take up and are a great solution if you are short on space. Corner baths can be a great space, and when combined with a whirlpool system they can soon become your favourite spot in the house. Once you add a whirlpool system the bath soon starts to feel like a luxurious spa space; and the envy of your friends, family and neighbours.
Offset baths have seen a rise in their popularity in recent years. The offset bath is a hybrid of a traditional corner bath and rectangular bath, from this mix the offset is far more efficient at maximising space, whilst not losing a great deal of bathing space.
As the Offset is a more recent development within the bathroom industry the corner bath is now seen as more dated and traditional. The offset now more than ever represents a modern and contemporary bathing solution.
The position of taps was always more complicated when installing a corner bath. Due to the inherent design, corner baths did not really have foot end like a rectangular bath. Taps had to either position on the wall, using an overflow filler or by positioning them in corners, which wasn’t ideal. The offset doesn’t have a problem when it comes to tap locations, you can still mount the taps on the wall and using an overflow filler, but you also have a tap-end where you can use a standard deck mounted bath tap.
Another advantage of a having a steep foot end like a rectangular bath is the offset bath can also be converted into a show bath using standard bath screens. If you are looking for an all-in-one bath/shower that uses a minimal amount of space; an Offset Shower Bath is perfect for this.
Taking the concept of an Offset Bath, a Space Saver Bath is styled in a similar way to maximise the space used in a bathroom. Unlike the Offset, the Space Saver does sacrifice bathing space to do this. The foot end of the bath is far smaller than the seating end, as you need less space for your legs.
This type of bath is perfect for an en-suite and can even be combined with a bath screen for a Space Saving Bath Shower.
Having a bath that is very space efficient means the bath is using far less water than a standard bath. This is more economical and does not unnecessarily waste water, which is great for the environment and should be more of a consideration when planning your bathroom.
This guide will give you an overview of the corner baths that we have available at UK Bathrooms. But first, a few words about these exceptional companies and why we are so proud to sell their corner bath designs.
Villeroy & Boch baths offer the most luxury. They categorise baths in their well-being section; meaning that they are designed to provide the ultimate relaxing experience and more of a spa sensation along with the use of great styling and the use of quality materials. Manufactured from both acrylic and quaryl materials Villeroy & Boch design the baths to maximise internal space and their baths are, in general, deeper than the market standard. This allows you to fully immerse yourself in the bath for the most relaxation. To provide deeper baths the acrylic baths have to be supplied with greater rigidity and are therefore reinforced as standard. This also helps to reduce the flexibility of the bath overall. Villeroy & Boch have patented Quaryl. A unique material which can be poured into a mould and shaped in many different forms. Originally developed for their system baths as it was a thicker material and the jets could be recessed into the material rather than being surface mounted, the material proved to have many other benefits which not only added to the luxury of the bath but also the design and quality of finish and durability.
Kaldewei baths offer optimum design and quality so that your bathing time is not just about hygiene, but also about pleasurable relaxation. Their unique steel enamel fuses steel with tough glass/enamel to create an incredibly durable material that is also an excellent heat conductor and looks fantastic.

Kaldewei rely on 100% natural materials to make their products, reflecting the depth of our commitment to sustainability.
