A small bathroom is not a good enough reason to not have a bath. Simply because the space-saving baths from the Villeroy & Boch Subway collection are true space sensations due to their shape and they will quickly find their perfect spot even in a small or badly proportioned bathroom. These space savers are not only practical, but also extremely elegant.
Many small bathrooms only have a shower as there is not enough space for a bath. Our asymmetrical space-saving baths show that this doesn't have to be the case and are available in left-handed and right-handed versions. Both have a head that is significantly wider than the foot. This way you can use the space-saving bath with a shower above your head and also enjoy a relaxing bath when you feel like it.
Other manufacturers of space-saving baths use steel and enamel, but we at Villeroy & Boch have chosen a different approach. Our space-saving baths are made solely from high-quality sanitary acrylic, a material with excellent properties: It is easy to mould and shape and adapts to the temperature of the water in no time at all.
Moreover, acrylic insulates much better than steel enamel, so it retains the heat of the water for longer and you can enjoy an even longer soak. Not forgetting its smooth, anti-slip surface that is very easy to clean.
Sanitary acrylic is a robust and resilient plastic that makes it easy to remove stains or deposits. Treat the surface regularly with a soft sponge or cloth and a special liquid cleaner for plastic to keep its brilliance and elegant shine.
You can remove limescale gently and without scrubbing by using vinegar or a limescale remover. If you have stubborn limescale, it is best to leave the cleaner on it for a few minutes to take effect and then simply wipe the stains clean. A drop of washing-up liquid is usually all you need to remove substances that leave greasy marks. Avoid abrasive cleaners, rough sponges and wire wool as the can permanently damage the surface.
The sanitary acrylic for our space-saving baths is completely coloured-through. This allows you to remove minor damage such as scratches or burn marks easily with an acrylic care set available from specialist retailers. Specialist retailers also stock acrylic repair sets for removing deeper damage, which entails refilling and then polishing the material. If you have any questions or need assistance, contact your local sanitary ware dealer or plumber.
Optional accessories are available for our space-saving baths, such as a grab handle that provides extra safety when getting into or out of the tub. The bath handles are easy to retrofit and can be used as a folding support rail and as a grab handle.
The handles are made from brass and then chrome-plated. The result is a high-quality, stable, perfect bath handle, which increases safety in the bathroom and provides valuable support to people of all ages when sitting down and standing up.
