Modern. Simple.

Badeloft takes a modern yet minimalistic approach to the design of their bathroom fixtures. They specialize in Stone Resin freestanding bathtubs, freestanding sinks, wall-mount sinks and counter-top sinks. Their Stone Resin products are made from marble and limestone mixed with a polyester Resin.

As far as bathtubs go, people are moving away from the acrylic and fiberglass tubs as they have zero heat retention. Since Badeloft products are made with natural minerals and the tubs are one-piece, solid fixtures, they have noticeably strong heat retention and will help the water inside stay warmer, longer.

Badeloft is a global brand based in Berlin, Germany. With showrooms throughout Europe and N. America, their US offices and showroom are located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their products are designed in Berlin ensuring that all of them demonstrate both practicality and modern innovation. They are confident that their products will be the focal point of your new bathroom.
