While a ‘standard’ bath measures 170cm (or 1700mm as you’ll often see on descriptions) in length, these handy designs come in different shapes, from contemporary and round to traditional and double-ended, in 1300mm or 1500mm, plus oftentimes they weigh less than the classic, large freestanding designs, which makes it easier to include one in your new design.
