Corner baths are getting more and more popular as more and more homeowners opt for a corner bath instead of the traditional straight baths. Aside from the aesthetics, many homeowners select corner baths for their compact design and space saving installation. There are two main variations of corner bathtubs including offset corner baths and regular triangle corner baths. However, some corner baths have additional features that provide further variations. These bathtubs are installed in a corner of the bathroom and have a triangular shape that allows them to fit snugly in the corner without using up much space.
1. Whirlpool Corner Baths
