The Best of Both Worlds: An Introduction to Whirlpool Shower Baths


When it comes time to renovate your bathroom, you’ll sometimes need to make some tough decisions – especially if you’re short on space. But if you’ve found yourself having to decide between either a whirlpool bath or a shower, we have some good news! With a combined whirlpool shower bath unit, you really can have the best of both worlds. In today’s blog post, we’ll explain everything you need to know.

What is a whirlpool shower bath?

It’s easy to assume that a whirlpool shower bath is nothing more than a regular bath with a shower installed at one end – but in reality, there’s a lot more to it than that. The actual shape of the whirlpool bath shell is designed expressly to play host to not just a shower unit, but in many cases also a full shower screen (or even enclosure) for use when showering. Whirlpool shower baths can be found in both left-hand and right-hand configurations depending on the layout of your bathroom and your particular needs. Now we know what they are, let’s learn about the benefits of whirlpool shower combination baths.

The benefits of whirlpool shower baths

It may well be stating the obvious, but the number one benefit of installing a whirlpool shower bath is… you guessed it… saving precious bathroom space. By combining two units into just one, you can free up at least a whole corner for more important bathroom things like wash basins, toilets, or other essentials. Smart use of space is at the heart of the whirlpool shower bath design, but you’ll also benefit from the mechanics of the bath too. Whirlpool baths are known to provide a host of health benefits, ranging from stress reduction to the relaxation of tired muscles. If you haven’t tried it yet, a whirlpool shower bath is a great way to get involved.

The aesthetics of whirlpool shower baths

Because of their unique design, you may wonder exactly how a whirlpool shower bath will blend into your bathroom’s interior décor. Well, we’ll have to stop you there, because your choices are practically unlimited. From the colour and finish of the panels on the side of your whirlpool shower bath – woodgrain or classic white acrylic are both great options – to the shower screen design itself, there’s so much to choose from. Whether you want clean straight lines or classic curves, you’ll find a whirlpool shower bath that fits the bill. Want to really push the boat out?
