The trend is clear: showers, especially floor-even showers, have won out over good old baths. Baths have lost the public’s favour almost to the same degree that showers have climbed the popularity scale.
That’s in spite of the fact that other sanitary products pale in comparison with the bath. It represents an oasis of well-being and epitomises the purest form of personal hygiene. After all, Cleopatra bathed in milk – she didn’t shower in it!
For anyone whose name isn’t Cleopatra and who only has one bathroom, the classic bath with over-bath shower and shower enclosure is the perfect option. If you have a little more room, you won’t have to choose – you can consider a freestanding bath as well.
