Whether it’s the daily scrub, a long bubbly soak or an icy recovery dip after a long country walk, baths are one of the best things we can treat ourselves to. Choosing the right one means making a solid investment in both your physical and mental health, regardless of how much you’re spending. Besides, a snazzy tub sure does make a great impression! So we’ve gathered our top 10 baths we love right now, to suit your budget, space and decor.
Pro tip! When you’re ordering a bath, keep in mind that they can vary in thickness. The thicker the acrylic, the more stable the bath feels when you’re climbing in. So try to spend as much as your budget will allow. And of course, try to consider how you cover the walls surrounding your bath. Tiles or tongue and groove panelling will be better than bare walls for moisture absorption – and provide a stunning finish to the room.

1. Dulwich roll top freestanding, Victoria Plum
All hail the classic roll top freestanding bath. If you’re after timeless style in your bathroom, then this design from Victoria Plum is absolutely dreamy. We especially love the intricate chrome claw feet for added finesse. Pick a traditional tap combination to pair with this design and it’ll last you for generations to come.
2. Veroli shower bath, Wickes
If you’re looking for a model that fits snuggly between two walls but still maximises space for the daily wash then Wickes has got you covered. This L shaped bath widens at the shower end for added practicality and looks rather swish with it’s clean angular lines. It’s also available in a left side version too.
3. Freestanding, B&Q
If you’ve got the space to work with, freestanding baths are where it’s at for making a lasting impression with your bathroom suite. This design from B&Q is sleek, distinguished and spacious. The tap placement is flexible to suit your room and the design is versatile depending on your decor. Plus, we think it’s rather reminiscent of a champagne bucket for extra luxe.
4. Hera corner bath, Wayfair
Perhaps you’ve got a nice corner space to work with and want a bit more of a spacious soak without going for the full jet tub shebang. Wayfair has a super solution in this simple corner bath. The rounded design makes it super comfy and spacious but the minimal design means you could work it into almost any decor choice.
5. Cooper wall freestanding, Victoria Plum
Victoria Plum’s Cooper tub prioritises comfort with rounded edges but still gives you both the solidity of a fitted bath and the impact of a freestanding model. This would work best with wall-mounted tap designs and had quite a modern feel but it’s safe to say that this design is timeless.
6. Straight bath with screen, Amazon
If you’re on the lookout for a standard straight bath with no frills at a super price point then check out this one from Amazon. It comes complete with the shower screen as well as panels included in the price soo you’re all set. In terms of design, the centred taps and waste give extra points for style and versatility.
7. Cleargreen petite freestanding, Building Supplies Online
If you’re stuck for space but still want a statement tub then try this petite design from Building Supplies Online. Measuring 1.5m in length, it’ll fit into a much smaller room than needed for your standard freestanding bath but still ticks the boxes for looking grand and stately.
8. Walk-in bath, B&Q
Many of us have access needs or live with someone elderly, which makes having a nice bath at hand all the more important in a home. B&Q sell a great range of walk in baths, including this one, which looks pretty snazzy and pack all the punch of a design-forward piece. You can also choose from different sides and shapes to suit you.
9. Burlington freestanding shower bath, Building Supplies Online
Here’s a combo for you if ever there was one. The Hampton from Burlington combines the splendour of a traditional freestanding roll top with the practicality of a shower bath. We love how it really makes an impression but is still so handy in the day to day, especially if you’re a little limited on space. Best of all, you can customise the feet to suit your decor.
10. Futral double ended whirlpool, Wayfair
Treat yourself to the ultimate in luxury tubs . This design from Wayfair is as good as it gets, with 10 jets, headrests, a see-through front and a chromotherapy lights. It’s like a little spa day at home, all to yourself. Let’s make it clear, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being indulgent if this is how you do it.
