    Hi all.

    Bit of an odd one here.
    we are upgrading our bathroom (which only has a shower at the moment) but we wish to put in a bath.
    Appleby 1700 Roll Top Shower Bath + Chrome Leg Set | Victorian Plumbing UK
    we are going for the for the left hand option as the bath is going into the right had corner of the bathroom.
    There are a couple of issues.
    We have a window on the wall at the end of the bath.
    If we fit the bath tight into the corner the shower screen would "cut across the window" vertically.
    So I wondered about fitting a "ledge" similar to below [​IMG]

    With the nature of the bath would this work or would this look stupid?
    Or are there any other ideas that could work?
    Thanks in advance

    I have to say any bath where the shower screen cuts a window vertically won't look right. If I remember rightly there are bespoke companies that will create enclosures to fit showers in strange places like that but they're made specifically for the location and aren't cheap.

    I'd look again at where the bath may be able to go.

    Wow, all that money and only a 5 year warranty on the bath? You'd be better off with a Trojan Repton I'd say...

    I've just fitted a Repton as it happens, in a similar situation. Went for the Chatsworth bath shower mixer to go above it

    Thanks for the reply
    The problem with the Repton is that i need a screen fitted to the outer edge of the bath so i need 3 square corners.

    I agree, this is the reason i was thinking of a ledge to push the bath out so the edge is past the window.
