Whirlpool baths are regarded by some as the ultimate in bathroom luxury. Bringing the jacuzzi experience into your home to be enjoyed whenever you want is readily achievable. These spa baths feature air and water bubbling effects, giving a sense of relaxation that is hard to beat. If there's a single bathroom item that speaks of luxury, comfort and perhaps just a touch of extravagance, it's the whirlpool bath tub.
The bath that can massage you with jets, whirpool or airpool functions is a bath that actively rejuvenates you as you bathe. Skilfully designed to ensure that each jet and whirlpool unit is angled at the correct degree, we have selected the manufacturers and models that perform to the highest specifications.
Many of our bath tubs come in standard and multiple upgraded whirpool system formats, allowing you to select which features you want according to your requirements and budget. Supplied in a variety of shapes and designs, a luxury jacuzzi bath can be implemented in almost any interior space. Corner units, inset rounded baths, freestanding units and spacious double ended baths big enough for two are all here.
For years the Whirlpool bath has been considered exclusive to the domain of the wealthy, but an increase in demand and improvements in technology have lowered the cost to more accessible price points. For a few hundred pounds more than your average bath tub price, you can enjoy that spa pampering in the privacy of your own home. Easy to install and maintain, Whirlpool baths are closer in reach than ever before.
A Jacuzzi bath is a touch of luxury for your home – something in which you could enjoy precious ‘me’ time, or something to make bath time fun for your children.
A warm water jet massage offers great health benefits, and increased mental wellbeing. A whirlpool bath will stimulate circulation, relieve tension, massage skin tissues to help keep them supple and looking youthful, help to reduce stress and promote a good night’s sleep.
The thought of easing yourself into the bubbling water is a tempting one, but buying the right bath for your home should, first and foremost, be a practical decision.
Measure your spaces carefully, especially if you’re renovating your bathroom and taking down walls. Don’t forget to allow for any extra space needed for items like bath stands and access panels. It’s important to decide early on if you’ll need a double-ended bath, or if your bath will just require one end to fit in your space.
You could also look at a Whirlpool system in a compatible Centennial corner bath from Carron Bathrooms. Centennial baths are 1500mm long by 1500mm wide, 480mm deep and with a capacity of 190 litres.
Need something to bring a designer look to even the tightest of spaces? Look at Villeroy & Boch’s Subway corner bath. It’s just 1,300mm long by 1,300mm wide and 610mm deep and compatible for whirlpool technology .
Will your new bath fit through the door?
Not only will you need to check the basic dimensions of your doorway and the bath, you should also check whether it will need to be turned so it can be fitted, and whether you have enough space in your room to do that.
Could you re-think other bathroom elements to fit a larger Whirlpool bath?
Are you making the best use of your space at the moment, or are there areas of wasted space in your bathroom? If so, you could send us some sketches of your space for advice. You may be able to move some items, or reduce their size, to help free up space for the larger whirlpool bath you’d love.
Airpool vs whirlpool
What’s the difference? Whirlpool systems push water through jets into your bath, while airpool systems push air through instead to form the bubbles. It’s all about your personal taste. Do you want more power in your system to work your muscles in the bath? Choose whirlpool. Do you want a more relaxing and gentle experience? Choose airpool.
Maintenance is generally simple with both options. Ensure you never run the whirlpool jets when the bath is empty. To clean, add a gentle cleaning solution to the water, empty and fill with clean water, then run the jets again. Airpool systems are self-cleaning and self-drying. Just turn on the jets after you’ve had your bath.
What sort of acrylic bath should you choose?
Acrylic can be moulded into any shape, so it’s a versatile option for creative and contemporary bathroom designs. It’s light, which is a boon for older homes where weights have to be carefully measured for baths in first floor bathrooms, for example. It’s also easy to clean, and is smooth yet non-slip.
Carron Bathrooms has developed its own rigid and durable form of acrylic, carronite. It is triple-layered and reinforced and comes with a 30-year guarantee. It has the Axis, a bath with a simple, sleek look in carronite.
Quaryl is exclusive to Villeroy & Boch – they say it is a material which is as robust as quartz but retains the flexibility of acrylic. It’s durable and is sound-insulating. Villeroy & Boch has an 1800mm long by 800mm wide rectangular bath in the My Art collection created in Quaryl which is perfect for a whirlpool system.
What’s your price range?
It’s important that you set your budget for your bath to complement the budget for any bathroom make-over as a whole. If you’re simply installing a new bath, you’ll need to factor in installation, any new tiling needed, and any extra plumbing or wiring costs.
It’s worth getting your plumber or electrician to check the status of your wiring and plumbing before you start – now might be the perfect time to nip potential problems in the bud.
There is a whirlpool bath for every pocket.
What extras will you need?
From inline heaters to underwater coloured lights, there are add-ons which will enhance your bathing experience and make your bathroom a real sanctuary.
What’s your look?
From traditional to sleek and modern, there are Jacuzzi baths for all styles of home.
Carron Bathrooms’ Quantum SE comes in nine sizes and is a simple, sharp rectangular bath which would be perfect in a contemporary design or a bathroom inspired by Art Deco. The curves of the Status are reminiscent of Sixties home styles – perfect for injecting some period energy into a 1960s home.
Villeroy & Boch’s Legato rectangular bath is also inspired by the sharp lines of Art Deco, but would also be an ideal bath in a loft apartment with a modernist scheme. It’s a versatile option for those who are updating an older home but don’t want to install traditional bathroom fittings.
