Bathtub dimensions, models for all

Bathtub size

Generally, the size of the rectangular bath tubs is between 140 and 170 cm, a width of 70 cm and a height of 55 cm.
These measures are necessary to ensure convenient access and adequate comfort during the bath to allow you to relax comfortably. Obviously, not always, the space available allows you to install a standard size tank, and for this reason, there are many different types of business in the market.

Circular tubs with a diameter between 160 and 180 cm, suitable for large bathrooms, are to be placed in the center of the room. Angular tubs of asymmetrical shape, indicated for medium bathrooms, are installed along two walls. The seating tanks, with a raised lower part serving as a seat, measure 120×65 cm. The basin is equipped with feet and has no supporting wall. The size of the bathtubs can vary between 70 and 85 cm in terms of width, between 120 and 180 cm in length and between 50 and 65 cm in height.

Small bath tubs

The tight spaces of modern apartments often require that the size of the bathtub is reduced but guarantee the same functionality, the same wellness and relaxation as the standard ones. The smallest tanks are always the traditional rectangular ones. The market offers products of less than 160 cm in length with models that measure just 105 cm. Usually the compact and shorter tank is taller or deeper than a few inches, in order to contain more water, compensating for smaller dimensions.

There are variable height bottom models with a step inside for a more comfortable seat. Small free-standing tanks are located in the center of the room and need about 70 cm of free space around them. There are also small whirlpool tanks.

Corner bathtubs

Corner bathtubs are elegant and beautiful to look at and can often represent a system to better utilize the bathroom space, even in small environments, especially those with square planes. The widest corner bathtub size is between 170×170 and 120×120. We also find tanks with two sides of different length. In choosing the bathtub, there is a need to keep in mind, in addition to the available space, the desired aesthetic yield and the habits of family members.

Angular bathtubs are appreciated because they meet different needs. In the case of large bath rooms, a special effect solution is to create a low wall support to the bathtub by dividing the room into two different areas. We have shaped tubs, semicircular, trapezoidal, and others.

Bathtubs prices

The simplest design bathtubs, usually, have a lower price because they are series models without accessories. This type of bathtub is supported by the wall and recessed. However, this latter model entails additional costs due to masonry work. The circular, asymmetrical and angular tanks generally have the highest prices. Small, compact tanks cost less than the big ones. The materials that make up the bathtub affect the price. Metal materials (cast iron, brass, copper) and marble are very expensive.

Acrylic materials, on the other hand, offer good value for money. The standard tanks have a price between 300 and 400 euros. Those with more special forms go up to 700-800 euros. Jacuzzi tubs swing between 900 and 2000 euros.

Built-in bath tub size

In the bathroom the sanitary facilities must be chosen with care, especially when we renovate the house. together with the furniture they bathe the room of well-being in which we will take care of us. Particular attention is paid to the size of the bathtub, which will welcome us at the end of the day to give us moments of relaxation. So many solutions offered by the market, with models that fit any space requirement.

The bathtub can be freestanding recessed, round, corner, long or shorter. If you do not want to spend excessively opt for a model from the traditional rectangular shape and without the accessories provided. Traditional tanks can be freely installed or recessed. In the latter case also consider the costs to realize the wall structure used to collect the chosen model.

As for the measurements, remember that even if the smaller bathtub sizes provide a lower price, you can also find models with standard and of good quality not too precious. Everything is to choose classic products, with no special shapes or with the finest materials.

Bathroom Size
Of course, the choice of a bathtub compared to another model can not ignore the careful assessment of the bathroom size. Notwithstanding the provisions of the law, which lay down minimum standards for a bathroom to be considered as agile (these may vary from common to common and to know them, it is necessary to consult the communal building regulations), a bathroom, to accommodate a tub, should be large enough.

Fortunately, for those who do not want to give up the pleasure of diving in a nice hot and fragrant bath, there are many space-saving solutions available on the market that allow you to install a bathtub in even spaces. To have a more accurate idea, it is good to say that the basin tubs can be used preferably when the measurements are large enough to have space to move freely. If the room is elongated, with the window on the bottom, a solution can be to place the tub under the window to avoid too narrowing the passage.

To choose the right bathtub you should first carefully evaluate the space you have. As for size and shape, we could generalize as follows: If you want to generalize, you can divide the market into these three macro categories: in large bathrooms the round tub is perfect, creating a very special atmosphere and the diameter of which can be understood between 160 cm and 180 cm. For mid-sized baths the angle tubs and the asymmetric shape are preferred; small baths are recommended for square or even very compact bath tubs. And the materials? Among the most used synthetic ones is acrylic, ideal for both standard and jacuzzi bath tubs. It is able to be worked very easily, it suits any shape and in addition it has the merit of being very durable in time and it is easy to wash. In the case of scratches, it can be polished and polished very quickly and return to an optimal quality condition. A valued alternative is the enamelled fiberglass, which boasts among its peculiarities the lightness, robustness and the choice of many chromatic variants. Also enamelled steel, but it is recommended to make sure that the thickness is not less than 4 mm. Cast iron, finally, is a very solid and insulating material and, unlike acrylic, makes the baths very heavy and does not allow for space between many types. In the picture Bette’s Bettelux bathtub: the soft line is particularly appreciated in the oval version with a vitrified steel fixed panel. The interior and exterior of the tub are seamlessly joined by the high-end manufacturing; the precious enamel finish makes it a unique piece.

Small bathtub

The standard bathtub measures 170×70 cm, but the variants are really numerous. And those who have a not very large bath, or characterized by non-ordinary plants, do not necessarily have to give up this element that adds great comfort. There are many small baths that do not involve sacrifices in terms of convenience and convenience. As well as the space-saving lines, with a tapered side, and those with the highest edge, inspired by Oriental tinos.

Finally, for those who prefer, there are freestanding tanks with the legs of the past, perfect for a vintage style bath. In the picture Jacuzzi Attitude, tub of sober and modern lines that, thanks to its reduced thickness, manages to offer a generous interior space and at the same time small dimensions (160 x 70 x 61.5 cm). Adding that extra touch is surely the material: a natural dolomitic marble composite that, overall, gives the tub compactness and strength, is extremely durable, non-porous and therefore easy to clean.

Measures bath tubs

Bath tub measurements are closely related to its shape. And this is a good starting point. We advise you to first determine the course you should follow your bath. Go beyond, or consider the idea of ​​having a bathtub that is neither rectangular nor round: originality in this context rewards you. And a lot, too. Often the solution coincides with a round, square, angular tub. Or characterized by irregular contours and uneven diffusions. In the picture a bathtub of the Duravit Paiova collection: its trapezoidal shape offers more room to bathe and relax. Available in one or two-person version, it is even more comfortable with the optional headrest. The step in the same finish as the coating panel facilitates entry and exit from the tank as well as the optional handle on the board. With two different backrest inclinations, Paiova also allows you to choose between an ergonomic sitting position and a more reclined position. The inclined tubular fronts make up a three-dimensional volume that opens to the bathroom and the user. Both backs can be equipped with a hydromassage system. The elegant flat nozzles produce a jet that massages the back along all the muscle bundles.
