The nation’s love of a good bath is back, with more than a fifth of adults regularly treating themselves to a leisurely soak in the tub.
More than half of Britons also claim the bathroom is their place in which to escape technology and home working.
nuie Bathrooms - part of The Roxor Group - has uncovered the nation’s bathing habits following lockdown. The survey of 2000 respondents discovered that, while our a love of baths is back, 35 per cent of those polled would take longer baths if their bathroom underwent a full makeover with many desiring a bigger bath to relax.
Temperature is also a key factor when looking at the perfect bath setting, with over a third of respondents stating they would stay longer in the bath if they had better temperature controls to ensure a constant, perfect warmth.
The love of a good shower also remains with 24 per cent enjoying one every day of the week.
It is no surprise that bathrooms are the one place to guarantee a moment’s peace. Often the only room with a lock, after 18 months of working from home the bathroom is also perhaps the place to fully switch off.
Dave Cullen, chief executive of The Roxor Group, said: “Renovating is, in itself, often seen as a therapeutic task – so according to these results, whether redecorating your bathroom or enjoying a dip in the tub, it’s a win-win on all grounds for homeowners.
“Whilst it’s been a difficult 18 months, it’s allowed people to spend more time relaxing and enjoying a bit more ‘me time’ away from their previously hectic lives.
"With an 52 per cent increase in baths sales over the last year, it’s great to see Britons investing in their bathrooms once again.”
