Cast Iron Baths
Cast iron baths have been popular now for over 200 years, and are still made today for the same reasons as they were when they were first installed in homes. There are a number of benefits to a cast iron bath, not least of which is just how good they look.
Freestanding Cast Iron Baths
Freestanding cast iron baths are available in a wide range of styles, and it’s not uncommon to see modern baths made using the material, but many prefer the more traditional style of bath with claw feet to best replicate the cast iron baths of old. It’s a great material if you’re looking for a more classically-theme bathroom, but it’s adaptable and works well amongst contemporary décor too. A cast iron bath is made from a thick layer of iron coasted in porcelain. This enamel layer is extremely durable, making it resistant to scratches, chips and dents.
No bath can match the lifespan of a cast-iron option, which will keep going strong for many years into the future, ideal as a long-term investment. Cast iron baths also hold the heat well. They’re not the absolute best but they’re significantly better than acrylic for retaining the heat of the water, helping to keep your bath temperature higher for a longer period of time.
If you enjoy a leisurely soak, then a cast iron bath will ensure you stay toasty and comfortable. The final benefit of cast iron baths is the fact that they’re low maintenance. The thick enamel coating can withstand most chemicals with no trouble but, in all honestly, you’re unlikely to need to use much as a cloth with gentle soap will remove any marks left on the resistant surface.
