Our 5 favourite roll top baths
First up is the beautiful ‘Hamptons’ roll top from Fired Earth, which is made from composite stone and does not have tapholes. This means you will have to install floorstanding or wallmounted taps, so allow for that too in your bath installation timings.
If you like the look of the first bath, but need something that weighs a little less, try the ‘Orford’ bath from Heritage Bathrooms. Made from a more lightweight acrylic, it is a third lighter than the ‘Hamptons’ bath.
For a more traditional look, choose Heritage Bathrooms’ ‘Dorset’ cast iron bath. With a 25 year guarantee and chunky French styling, this classical beauty is definitely a worthwhile investment.
And of course, no roll top bath post would be complete without at least a couple of metal baths - and these two, from William Holland, are just perfect. The bath above is the ‘Bateau Bath’ in Stanneus finish and below is the super-luxurious ‘Alvius Bath’, also in Stanneus. But at 1625mm square, install only if you can handle all that luxury!
