Single and Double Ended
This style of bath is the most common with single ended baths tending to be the standard design for inset tubs. Both the taps and the waste are situated at one end of the bath, usually with the taps fitted above the waste, whilst the opposite end of the bath has a gentle slope for back and shoulder support. The taps are confined to one end though and can sometimes be fitted in the centre of a single ended to aid with space saving.
A double ended bath has the waste and taps fitted in the centre of the tub or fitted to the wall. There is often access from both ends of the bath and as the taps are placed in the centre this provides you with more space when you’re in the bath.Generally both ends of the bath have a gentle slope so there’s enough room for two people to bathe together.
The choice between a single and double ended all comes down to lifestyle and the space you have available. Single ended baths fit neatly against walls and can help save space in the room but a double ended may provide you with more ease in lifestyle for example when it comes to bathing the kids.
