In amongst the many superb high quality building services that we supply to the good people of Bolton, is bathroom redesign and fitting. Along with the kitchen, your bathroom is one of the main rooms that will really sell your home – either to prospective buyers or just to your friends and family – so it pays to put some thought into its design. There is a seemingly endless choice of bathroom fittings and fixtures and it is very important that you make the right choices early on in planning your new bathroom so as to avoid costly changes later on.

One of the most striking features of any bathroom is its namesake – the bath. The bath tends to be the biggest item that you will have in your bathroom and so it is vital that you choose both the right style and design of your bath. There are now many different choices of bath available and your choice can be led by the size of your bathroom, the purpose of your bath or if neither of these is limiting factors, just what you think looks the best. So to help you in making the correct choice of bath for your bathroom have a look at our guide below.

Single-ended baths

These are probably the most common type of bath. These tend to be rectangular in shape and have the taps at one end of the bath, meaning that you can only recline at the opposite end. The standard size for a single-ended bath is 1700mm x 700mm, and these tend to be the cheapest options. However there are several other sizes of single-ended baths available.

Double-ended baths

These tend to be similar in size and shape to single-ended baths but have the taps positioned along one of the long sides, this allows bathers to recline at either end of the bath. Again numerous sizes of double-ended baths are available and can add a touch of luxury into your bathroom for a fairly reasonable price.

Shower baths

Shower baths are an increasingly popular choice in British bathrooms as they can save space and perform 2 functions. They tend to be either an L or a P shape, with a wider end under the shower and the narrower end coming away from that. This gives maximum room when showering, but also allows the bath to be used for bathing. Shower baths tend to be somewhat shorter than standard baths and so fit well into small spaces.

Freestanding baths

These are available in a variety of designs from the traditional roll top baths, to more modern shapes. They can be stood on raised feet, or can sit directly onto your bathroom floor. Freestanding baths tend to make quite a statement and can be more expensive that other bath types. They are also larger than many other bath types and so are suited to larger rooms.
