While in the past, a roll top bath would often be seen as a symbol of style and elegance in a very traditional setting, these days there are many modern designs to the roll top bath, ensuring they are fit to adorn even the most contemporary of bathrooms.

While many of the old style bathtubs would rely on elegant looking claws or feet, many of the modern designed units go all the way to the floor, allowing users to soak themselves even deeper into a bath.

In this blog I discuss some modern twists on the classic designs, as well as the traditional roll tub bath designs and ways in which to complement the tub in your bathroom.

Egg Roll Top Bath

One particularly funky design of roll top bath is the egg bathtub. Now that doesn’t mean you have to crack the shell in order to get in, it simply describes the way the curves give the tub that egg like appearance. It certainly gives the room a talking point and with Easter only just passing, Easter eggs are probably still on people’s minds!

Other Stunning Modern Roll Top Bath Options

Another contemporary looking offering takes the slipper bath a step further by offering a raised lip on one side of the tub.

Other impressive designs include units that instead of simply being straight, curve outwards more and more as you move further away from the bottom.

Simply tweaks to the typical bathtub design give these freestanding tubs a little more of a designer edge to them, so if you want to blend something typically seen as traditional, with a contemporary design it is well worth looking out for the different options available.

I Think I’ll Stick With The Traditional

If after looking at these sleek modern designs, you decide you prefer the more traditional style of roll top bath, you need not fear as there are plenty of great designs available.

Coming in an array of colours and with everything from wooden feet to dragons claws, even if you go for a traditional tub it will still look the bee’s knees in your modern bathroom.

Complementing The Bathtub

The great thing about most of these units is the fact that they encourage people to use free standing taps, or alternatively wall mounted units, rather than taps built into the tub itself. This gives the bathtub a lot more of a classy edge to it.

If you look around, you will also find a lot of counter top basins available that often mimic the style and shape of your roll top bath, it is almost like having a mini me tub and such a basin makes a great finishing point to your bathroom.
