Bring Back Bathtubs!

As bathrooms have changed over the years, it seems like bathtubs have become scarce. More and more people look for great showers with all the bells and whistles when buying or remodeling homes instead. However, as of lately, bathtubs appear to be making a comeback. If you are thinking about updating your house before putting it on the market, read why you should consider adding a tub to your bathroom.

The National Association of Home Builders has in recent years pointed to a dwindling interest in whirlpools in the master bathroom, but that doesn’t mean home owners are ready to banish bathtubs all together.

Sure, home owners have been swapping out built-in bathtubs with supersized walk-in, lavish showers.

However, now some home owners say they want to add the tub back in.

The National Kitchen & Bath Association noted a trend this year among remodelers incorporating more freestanding soaking tubs. Since it’s not built in, there is more flexibility in the placement of these tubs too. They can be placed anywhere from along a window to the center of the bathroom to even, in some cases, inside the shower.

Often times, the tub stands alone nowadays. Freestanding tubs are becoming a focal element in the bathroom, says Karen Eubank with Eubank Staging & Design in Dallas.
