How to get your dream cast iron bath

How to get your dream cast iron bath

Hot zones, integrated speakers, stream-flow jets, and Japanese soaking baths are just some of the many options when buying a bath nowadays. However, if you are searching for a simplistic yet luxurious option to experience, freestanding cast iron baths remain the perfect choice.

Many people agree that there is a distinctive feeling sitting in a cast iron bath, one that is hard to find elsewhere. Those lucky enough to already enjoy the luxuries of this kind of tub, or to find one in the new home they are moving to, are one step ahead.

A lot of people consider getting rid of these baths when they start to show signs of wear. This isn’t wise however. It is possible to refinish them so they look like brand new. This can be a more cost effective option.

A possible issue with these baths is rust, especially when the exterior coating wears away. To restore this, it is recommended you apply a new epoxy finish to halt future rust. This coating will also prevent nonabrasive cleaners from sticking, keeping the restored surface in good condition.

The enamel that lines the interior of the tubs is very hard but it can be damaged over time. Fortunately it can also be repaired or even replaced entirely if necessary.

Alternatively, there is the option of sourcing a new bath. You don’t necessarily have to find an antique or vintage bath, as there are companies that make historically accurate reproductions. You need to think carefully about which option is best for you.

Here at Country Cast Baths you will find a range of different styles and sizes to choose from. We strive to offer products that are as visually appealing as they are comfortable to relax in.

The Glaisdale Roll Top is an elegant hand-painted white finish bath with iron gargoyle legs wrapped in chrome. Or there are other options such as the Bransdale bath which is a unique black tub, wrapped in a grey shell with detailing. Finding a bath to best suit your bathroom won’t be a difficult task, as we have something to always meet your requirements.

One of the most advantageous factors of owning one of these tubs is they will serve you for years to come; providing you with the option of a relaxing bathing experience whenever you need it. For outstanding freestanding cast iron baths, get in contact with us today.
