Design Trend: Freestanding Tubs

Freestanding tubs. Is there a more romantic look for a bathroom?! I’m not sure why they disappeared, but for decades it has been the trend to build a bathtub/shower combo, or in the case of my master, no tub at all (horrible!) Whatever the reason, the stand alone tub is back and I for one am thrilled to see it return!

 They are a classic, with timeless appeal, yet they are also right on-trend for today’s design. Hopefully at some point we will be re-doing our master bathroom and nothing would bring me greater joy than being able to add a freestanding tub.

In the meantime, I’m just going to soak in the inspiration…..
