“To be or not to be”… this is the question in most Bath showrooms.
In a world that is so fast paced its hard to take the time out to actually bathe in a tub. The more and more bathroom renovations we do, people are opting to remove there tubs and replace them with a shower. Even in new builds, we are seeing that the majority of bathrooms are designed with large stand up showers and the only tub in the home is in the master bath.
In the past 5 years or so the freestanding Tub is the tub of choice. People are choosing them because they create more space… whether its because they need to create more space to make the shower larger, or they want to update the look of the bathroom. Freestanding tubs are where its at. Bain Ultra , a premiere tub company that we are exclusive dealers for is showing an huge rise in freestanding tubs. Where just a couple of years ago, drop in tubs where the biggest sellers for them, they now see a much bigger demand of freestanding tubs.
Architecturally, and design wise you can make a big impact… some of these tubs have magnificent shapes and styles… almost creating and stand alone work of art.
