How to choose the right bath for your bathroom


If you’re in the process of looking for baths in Perth for your bathroom, you may find yourself overwhelmed with the large number of choices that you have. Even if you have chosen a bath over a shower, you still need to consider what type of bath to get. However, don’t worry – all you have to do is to follow some well thought out steps to choose the right bath.

But first, let me elevate your guilt of enjoying a bath: According to Yarra Valley Water, a half full bath uses 80 litres of water on average, while a full bath can use up to 140 litres of water. Given that the average person takes an eight minute long shower at 7-15 litres per minute, depending on your show head, it seems that taking a bath may actually be more efficient in lowing water consumption than a shower. With this in mind, now you can enjoy having a relaxing daily bath knowing you’re being water conscious.

As the head of purchasing at Ross’s, I’ve observed how our customers go about selecting baths in Perth. Thanks to this, I have more than a fair idea about this process and in this article, I will share with you 3 simple tips on how to choose the right bath for your bathroom.

1. Type of bath

First and foremost, customers who visit us looking for baths in Perth determine what type of bath they want. This can be a tricky process as you certainly have a number of options to choose from. However, I’ve found that insert baths are by far the most popular amongst our customers. Also referred to as built-in baths, these baths consist of a shell fitted into a framed enclosure and thanks to this simple design; they are our most popular and are also the most affordable.

2. Bath materials

Next up, customers consider the material which the bath is made out of. When it comes to the material of your bath, you can choose from acrylic, steel, stone and cast iron, all of which have their own distinct characteristics. Acrylic is lightweight, strong and cheap, which makes it one of the most popular choices for baths in Perth, and across Australia. Steel is another popular material for baths and is stronger and more durable than acrylic but is significantly costlier. Cast iron and stone baths were very popular in the earlier days, but should you choose them today, you will probably need to shell out thousands of dollars.

Ross’s Selection: Our baths are made mostly from acrylic. They are highly durable and available at an affordable price.

3. Bath sizing

Finally, when looking for baths in Perth, you need to consider the size of bath. Choosing the appropriate size for your bath comes down to whether you opt for a single ended bath or a double ended bath. In single ended baths, there is only one back rest while the other end holds the faucet. 1700x700mm is the most common size for this type of a bath, although you can find larger baths provided you shell out more money. Double ended baths have two back rests and are available in 1700x700mm, 1800x800mm and even larger.

Ross’s Selection:  At Ross’s, we feature both single ended and double ended baths in a variety of sizes, so you can go ahead and choose a size that best meets your needs.
