Freestanding Bathtubs – Style over Substance?

Posted on March 12, 2017 at 1:55 pm

A freestanding bathtub can look really beautiful in a bathroom. However, they can have a lot of drawbacks too depending on your bathroom, the layout and the rest of your bathroom suite. Is it really worth getting a freestanding bathtub?

Baths like this will often be most desirable in Victorian homes with very well-proportioned rooms. This means that they just won’t be suitable for everybody – especially if you home is a small flat.

Even if you do have a big enough space, there is a lot to think about. People will often have different tiling behind the wall where the bath is or will have a shower over the bath. Neither of these things will really be possible with a freestanding bath so you may need to make some major changes to your whole bathroom.

You may also need to make some adjustments to your plumbing. However, if you’re happy to go ahead, a freestanding bath will look great and will help make your bathroom a relaxing space to enjoy.

Installing A Bathroom Vent

Posted on August 5, 2016 at 6:45 pm

One of the most important things to consider when installing a bathroom vent is that the fan should be located away from the intake air source, such as a door or window (if the window will be open). If the window and door will be closed, make sure there is a 5/8” or greater gap under the door to allow fresh air into the room.

Other vent fan installation tips include:

    • Make sure the vent fan moves enough cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air for the size of your bathroom.
    • Exhaust the air from the vent fan to the outside of the house, not in the attic.
    • Use smooth ductwork and limit the length and bends as much as possible, following the instructions that came with the fan.
    • Install a wall or roof cap that closes when the fan is off.
