However, with the advent of time, various other types of bathtubs have found their way in the market to join the bandwagon. Yet, they have failed to overwhelm the appeal of those good old freestanding baths. If you are still pondering over what makes these beauties timeless classic, it is their ability to add some drama to your bathroom, which does the trick.

You know, even simplicity can at times add a lot of drama. When people think of more drama, they think of things that more eye-catching, bold and more vibrant. This at times is wrong! Drama more often than not can be felt even with minimal ornamentation and some drop-dead simplistic lines. It is so true in case of the freestanding baths we at Direct Tile and Bath offer!

The freestanding baths we have are sleek and extremely minimalistic in structure and form and are left without any clutter whatsoever around them. However, that does not deter them from being the focal point of all the drama that your bathroom can play with.  Think of offset simplistic lines with barely a couple of features like a sleek pendant or a gorgeous chair – and they are enough for the drama to unfurl!

Therefore, now that you are so sure of adding the tinge of drama to your bathroom, it is your call now to choose from the wide plethora of varieties that we offer from Direct Tile and Bath.
