What is a straight bath? 

A straight bath is probably the most common type of bath. This is named because the outside footprint of the bath creates a rectangle with straight edges, which can fit neatly into any bathroom.

What are the important considerations when choosing a straight bath?

There are a number of important considerations to take into account when choosing a straight bath. These considerations include: 

  • Choosing a double or single ended bath- a straight bath can be made double ended by positioning the taps in the centre of the bath space instead of at one end. This means you can enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub facing in either direction. However, the more traditional style single ended bath is often more useful if you plan to have a shower over bath system.
  • The bath fixtures- choosing the right fixtures for your straight bath is an important consideration. From mixer taps to traditional pillar taps, there are a wide range of tap options available that can make all the difference to the overall finish of your bathroom as a whole. You should try and choose a contemporary or traditional option that suits the interior design theme you are establishing.
  • Interior contours- while a straight bath may be fully rectangular on the outside, this can also be contoured and shaped on the inside. If you don’t want the inside of your bath to be a straight rectangle you can choose a softer curved style, depending on your preferences.
