Why should I Choose a Natural Stone Freestanding Bath?

26 February 2020

At Clearwater, we offer a wide variety of freestanding baths and basins made from Natural Stone to provide homeowners with designer style bathrooms.  Beautiful and eye-catching, there’s no denying that this style of bath looks great in the home, but did you know there’s also several benefits to a Natural Stone bath?

Extremely Durable

Natural Stone baths are built to last a lifetime. Their solid structure is extremely durable and strong; it is even more robust than granite. This makes it the perfect choice for a freestanding bath as the stone will not crack or split due to its thick profile. If your bath does get damaged by accident, then it can often easily be repaired by simply polishing and smoothing away any scuffs and scratches.

Luxurious Matt-Look Finish

The sophisticated matt finish to Natural Stone makes it a great focal point for any bathroom design; especially if you are looking to create a luxurious spa-like feel to the room. Freestanding baths in this material will offer a softer, velvety feel compared to their acrylic counter parts, adding an extra element of comfort to your bathroom.

Heat Retaining

The Natural Stone stops heat from escaping, so you can spend as much time in the bath without worrying about the temperature dropping, water wastage or additional heating needs. This subtle feature means you will be able to truly relax in your freestanding bath.


If you’re looking for a freestanding bath that exudes style and elegance and offers a superior choice then look no further than Natural Stone. Styles such as the Vigore or the Lacrima will add an effortless designer style to your bathroom interior. However, it is worth mentioning that a Natural Stone bath is extremely heavy, so please make sure you consult an architect or designer before installing upstairs.
