3 Things to Consider When Buying a Bath

Here are three things that you must consider before purchasing a bath, to ensure you choose the right one for you. 

1. Taps 

Most baths don’t come with pre-drilled tap holes. Namely, acrylic baths don’t. Therefore, you will need to drill them based on where you want your taps to sit. 

2. Size and Position 

No matter what your bathroom looks like, you will need to carefully consider where your bath will go in the bathroom. If you have a unique layout, this will need to be carefully thought out. The size range we have at Modern Living accommodates all bathroom layouts. 

With the help of our design team, we can sketch out your bathroom layout and explore the different styles and sizes that will work for you.

3. Wastes, Panels and Screens 

With certain models, add-ons are a must. Baths generally only come with standard supports, all other accessories will be charged as add-ons.
