Before adding hot water, cast iron baths are very cold to the touch, but don’t let that put you off. The great thing about them is that they heat up slowly and retain heat. This means that once your bath heats up, it’ll stay warm and keep your bathwater warm for an extended period of time. Which is what makes a cast iron bath perfect for those of us who like to enjoy a long soak at end of a hard day.
A cast iron bath will almost certainly cost more than an acrylic bath, however there’s a reason for that. They are considered timeless, and a well maintained bath will last many years. It’s not unusual to find a cast iron bath in homes that have been there for decades. They can be refinished to give them new life as required.
Many home designers prefer to use a cast iron bath because of the clean, crisp lines they bring to a bathroom. They look especially good in modern bathroom spaces serving as a real statement piece.
Many baths can be customised by painting the exterior in a colour to match or compliment its surroundings.
