KOHLER, Wis. – May 17, 2013 – Creating a relaxing bathroom requires thoughtful design and a well-planned layout. A popular element in both modern and traditionally designed bathrooms is a stand-alone or freestanding bath, which visually draws attention and provides the allure of escaping the daily hustle and bustle with a gentle and soothing soaking bath experience. Bringing together the essence of design and comfort, Kohler launches two new freestanding bath models, Stargaze™ and Sunstruck™, with elegant, seamless aesthetics and attractive price points.

"We've seen a growth in consumer interest in freestanding baths recently," says Rebecca Seiler, bathing product manager for Kohler Co. "Homeowners are building or remodeling bathrooms to be more of a retreat and really like the idea of having a centerpiece to tie the entire space together. A stand-alone bath is perfect for just that."

These two acrylic baths offer a smooth texture and simple, clean lines to fit in any bathroom décor. Additionally, their easy-to-clean surface and durable material provides for little maintenance. These baths are priced to ensure that even budget-conscious homeowners can include a freestanding bath in their bathroom environment.

The Sunstruck bath is a classic oval shape and its ergonomic design conforms to and supports the bather's body for enhanced soaking comfort. Its curved bathing well offers lumbar support at each end as well as extended legroom, so even tall bathers can lie back and stretch out.

The crisp, clean lines of the Stargaze bath's rectangular shape help it to be an instant focal point in any bathroom. The ergonomic design of this bath increases the length of the bathing well, and like the Stargaze bath, offers lumbar support at either end of the bath.

Both baths are available in either a straight shroud design, resembling a standard straight-sided bath installation, or a fluted shroud design providing a tailored look to the bath. The baths also feature a wide deck along one side that serves to simplify faucet placement and installation, as well as provides extra support when entering and leaving the bath.

Sunstruck and Stargaze are offered in White and Biscuit for seamless integration into the bathroom space, and their 66-by-36-inch and 72-by-36-inch sizes, respectively, ensure an enveloping soaking experience.
