Straight Baths Buying Guide

As you’ve probably already noticed, there are many different things to think about when buying an acrylic straight bath.

Not only do you have to take into account things like the size of the bath, but you have to decide what style and shape you want too.

So, if you’re not too sure where to start, read our buying guide below. The Royal Bathrooms team has pulled together their top buying tips to help make buying your new straight bath easier than ever!

What is a straight bath?

We’ll begin with a definition - what exactly is a straight bath?

Put simply, straight baths are the most popular shape of bath available and, as you’ve probably guessed, have straight sides.

Straight baths are rectangular in shape and are available in different widths and lengths, so it’s possible to buy a straight bath for almost any size bathroom.

Straight baths are available in a number of different types, with different shapes and styles being the main differentiators (we’ll cover these different types of straight below shortly).

What types of straight baths are there?

As we mentioned above, there are different types of straight bath available. These can generally be divided based on two factors:

  • Shape
  • Style


When we talk about the different shaped straight baths that are available, we are referring to the interior ‘lip’ of the bath.

With this in mind, there are two main shapes of straight bath; square and curved.

Square straight baths are baths where the interior lip of the bath follows the external edges of the bath and has straight edges and 90º corners.

Curved straight baths on the other hand are baths where the interior lip of the bath is gently curved. For many people, this creates a more refined, luxurious look to the bath, whereas square straight baths have a more practical, utilitarian look.

Ultimately however, whether you choose a square or curved straight bath is entirely down to your personal preference.


The second way that straight baths are categorized is based on their style.

By style, we are referring to whether they are single ended or double ended. +

When you see a straight bath labelled as ‘single ended’, this means that taps are placed at one end of the bath. The other end of the bath features a slope on the interior section. This means that when you’re using it you can lay back and rest on the slope.

This creates a really comfortable bath in which you can soak for long periods of time should you wish to do so.

The other main style of bath you’ll encounter is double ended straight baths.

Double ended straight baths are baths where both ends of the bath feature slopes on the interior section. This means you can lie in the bath at either end. The taps on double ended straight baths are located in the middle of the long side of the bath closest to the wall.

Double ended straight baths are regarded as a particularly luxurious option whilst also being highly practical as it’s possible to lie in them both ways.

What sizes of straight bath are there?

One of the most important things you’ll have to take into account when buying an acrylic straight bath is its size.

First of all, you’ll want to make sure it actually fits in your bathroom!

But, you’ll also want to give some thought about who will be using it and how. If you’re just installing a bath for quick washes, then you can probably opt for something fairly standard sized.

On the other hand, if you’re installing a straight bath which is going to be used to soak and relax in for long periods of time, you may want to opt for one that’s slightly larger than average.

However, no matter what size straight bath you require, we’re almost certain you’ll find one that works for you here at Royal Bathrooms.

We divide up our straight baths based on their length and width. So, as long you know the dimensions you require, you can easily find what you’re looking for.

The different length straight baths available at Royal Bathrooms are:

  • 1500mm
  • 1600mm
  • 1700mm
  • 1800mm

The different width straight baths available at Royal Bathrooms are:

  • 700mm
  • 750mm
  • 800mm

Simply use the filters on the left hand side of our product pages to find the size straight bath you are looking for.

What are straight baths made of?

Whilst it’s possible to buy straight baths in a number of different materials, the overwhelmingly popular material of choice is acrylic.

This is because acrylic is not only high-quality and great value for money, but it’s also easy to maintain, clean and install in the first place.

At Royal Bathrooms we manufacture our straight baths from the highest-quality 6mm acrylic. This means that all of our straight baths are durable, long-lasting and will withstand all of the rigours that you’d expect from a bathroom that’s used on a daily basis.

All of our straight baths are also CE & EN14516 certified, meaning they are approved for use in domestic properties.

Do straight baths come with side panels?

At Royal Bathrooms we understand that not everyone will automatically want side panels included with their straight bathtub - so, we give you a choice!

Amongst our range you can select acrylic straight baths in the following configurations:

  • No panels included.
  • Front panel only included.
  • Front and end panel included.

This makes it easy for you to select the exact configuration you want. Simply use the filters on the left hand side of our product pages.

You can also search based on the material that our bath panels are made from; MDF or acrylic.

Plus, we also sell bath panels separately. So, if you want to purchase bath panels on their own, or you’re looking for bath panels in a particular style e.g. oak finish, stone grey, or grey elm, you can do so here.

Do straight bathtubs come with taps?

The straight bathtubs that you can find here on Royal Bathrooms are not supplied with taps included.

This is because we understand that many people wish to choose their taps themselves and do not want them to be automatically included with an acrylic straight bath.

So, we supply our acrylic straight baths undrilled so you can select and fit the taps that are perfect for you and your bathroom.

If you’re looking for taps, then check out our huge range of quality taps now.
