Restoring Coloured Baths

Many people have coloured bathroom suites dating from the '70s and '80s. Quite often the suite is in very good condition, except for the bath. The bath itself may well have lost a lot of its shine and in places the colour has been bleached out so that the bath looks as though it has a white “dust” deposited on it. The white “dust” is only apparent when the bath is dry and it doesn't clean off.

Re-enameling, refinishing, reglazing or resurfacing are terms used to describe basically the same thing. We can restore the bath to new, on site without removal. Any chops, limscale damage or rust are handled before we resurface the bath. The bath is no longer scratchy and difficult or impossible to clean. The end result is a smooth, shiny and easy to clean bath.

The Bath Business can resurface or restore the bath back to its original colour and shine. Thus saving the cost of replacing the bath or, more likely, the whole bathroom suite. It would be very difficult to obtain a bath that matched the existing suite.

For many years the trend was to replace these coloured suites with white ones. But currently this seems to have changed, and at the Bath Business we have resurfaced or re enameled a lot more coloured baths this year than we would have some years ago. The trend is definitely swaying back towards coloured baths.

Add to this the fact that these baths are often bigger and considered better by their owners than the equivalent modern replacement, resurfacing them back to their original glory becomes more and more appealing.

As well as being asked to re enamel or resurface baths back to their original colour we are also being asked to recolour baths. Lighter tones of pink, yellow and blue are popular with our clients. The Bath Business is  also called in to recolour a bath when a DIY bath repair job has gone wrong.

The Bath Business can resurface/re enamel the bath whether it is cast iron, pressed steel, plastic or fiberglass. Enamel baths do look fantastic when resurfaced.
