There has never been a time when a bath was a regulation size, which still holds true today, although a standard bath today will, generally, be one which has a length of 170 to 180 cm; before the use of the metric measuring system, a single ended bath in earlier times would have been 5 feet 6 inches in length, this was probably a necessity as bathrooms were usually quite small rooms.
The concept of the standard bathtub can be said to have evolved into exciting shapes thanks to the use of acrylic; but in most people’s minds the bath will still have the taps at one end and the opposite end will be curved and slope away allowing the user to lay back in comfort.
Naturally choosing a bath will depend, to some degree, upon the size of the room, other considerations will of course be taken into account, colour, shape, freestanding, whether a single ended bath is the preference, or a double ended with centrally placed or freestanding taps. Will the size of the room require a straight bath to be fixed against a wall?
The one thing that can be said is that there has never been a greater choice of materials, vibrant colours and shapes for anyone wanting to install a bathroom into a new build home, renovate, or re-create a new bathroom space.
