Types of Bath Explained
Single Baths - The Most Popular Option
The most popular choice for modern homes are single ended bathtubs, which are designed for use by a single person at a time. Single baths are usually rectangular and designed to be placed against a wall or in a corner of your bathroom, helping make the most of your available space. These baths usually feature one sloping end, for you to rest your back or shoulders against during bathing, while the waste end will generally be vertical with the taps directly above the waste. Available in a vast number of sizes, single ended baths are suitable for almost every property and will ensure you have a bathtub that fits snugly into your room.
Choosing a Double Ended Bath
Double ended baths are usually symmetrical, meaning they can be shared by two people at once. They will generally be larger than single baths, though many brands offer their models in smaller sizes for less expansive bathrooms. Double ended baths offer plenty of space for families looking to bathe two small children at a time or couples spending an evening enjoying a relaxing soak together. Double baths are often freestanding, in keeping with their traditional shape, and their symmetry makes them very versatile with regards to tap placement. The increased size of double ended baths means they might not be practical for every bathroom but they're always a luxurious choice and their symmetry offers more freedom while placing the unit. Double ended baths are available in a vast quantity of sizes and shapes,
Shower Baths - Combining Bathing and Showering with Ease
While it is possible to install a shower over the majority of rectangular baths with the aid of a shower curtain or bath screen, shower baths are specifically designed for this purpose. Shower baths combine a bathtub and shower tray by providing a flat standing area at the foot end. The standing area of the bath is usually wider than the rest of the bath's interior, resulting in a distinctive shape. The most common shower bath shapes are L-shaped and P-shaped bathtubs, depending on whether or not the standing area is square or rounded. Both L and P shaped shower baths are compatible with a range of straight and curved bath shower screens respectively. For bathrooms with limited space where you want the convenience of a shower combined with the comfort of a bath, shower baths offer a perfect solution.
Freestanding Baths - For That Added Luxury
Traditionally, freestanding bathtubs tend to be double ended, with taps placed either on an adjacent wall or rising from the floor beside the bath. Freestanding baths are available in a number of vintage designs, commonly symmetrical but sometimes with one taller end for you to rest against while bathing. There are many modern interpretations of the freestanding bath; by moving the bath away from the wall, a variety of different design possibilities become available, resulting in pieces that are as extravagant or minimalist as you desire. For an extra touch of individuality, many freestanding baths can be installed with or without feet, with a wealth of different options to add a unique feature to your new bathtub.
