Choosing the right dimensions for your bathtub

Choosing the right dimensions for your bathtub

Cast iron baths are statement pieces and have an undeniable sense of class and luxury. They are designed to last a lifetime and also deliver a comfortable experience for bathers because the material will hold heat much better than standard baths. They work with both modern and traditional decor, so you can choose a tub safe in the knowledge it will suit whatever design you go for both now and in the future too.

When choosing a bathtub, whether you go for cast iron or any other material, it is important to consider the dimensions if you want to have the best possible experience. Tubs come in a range of shapes and sizes to cater for different requirements. There isn’t a single universal standard size; instead each model will have its own dimensions based on the design.

The length of tubs can vary a great deal. The smallest ones are around 1200-1300mm long so they are great for bathrooms where space is at a premium. Longer tubs are over 1800mm in length to cater for taller bathers and larger spaces. The majority of tubs will fall somewhere between these numbers, with 1700mm the most common length.

The variation in the width is not as pronounced as the length. The most common width is around 700mm although both narrower and wider variations are available. A wide bath can be 800mm and above to provide additional room for bathers.

When considering the size of the bathtub, you should always keep the dimensions of the bathroom in mind as well as the layout you want. It is unwise to choose a large tub for a small space because it will make the room feel cramped and uncomfortable. Similarly you shouldn’t have a small tub in a large bathroom, especially if you want it to be a statement piece.
