The latest launch from Colchester-based BC Designs is in response to the fact that while bathrooms are getting smaller, the demand for luxury and design-led bathroom products is increasing, as homeowners don’t want to sacrifice on style for the sake of practicality. The new freestanding addition by BC Designs is the Penny bath – an acrylic slipper bath that can be painted to match any colour.
With just a 1360mm footprint, the Penny bath is much smaller than regular baths (that measure around 1700mm) and so can be used in smaller bathrooms and en suites with ease. While it may be small, the company says it has been designed with comfort in mind as the deeper side provides more back support while enjoying a soak and relaxing.
To ensure the space doesn’t feel cramped, it is recommended that an additional 100mm is left between the perimeter of the tub and the walls.
