According to the National Association of Home Builders, interest in whirlpool tubs in the master bathroom for new homes has diminished. While many Minooka new home buyers are foregoing the whirlpool for massive showers, that doesn’t mean the tub is has gone the way of bell bottoms. Some Minooka new homeowners are requesting bathtubs be put back in.
The National Kitchen & Bath Association has noticed a trend from home remodelers this year. Bathroom remodels are now including clawfoot and freestanding soaking tubs. In addition to being a more elegant choice, freestanding bathtubs have the flexibility to be placed anywhere in the bathroom because they’re not built in. These bathtubs can be placed along large picture windows, in the center of the bathroom, or in some cases, placed inside the shower.
This new trend is showing that a soaking tub can be the focal element of the master bathroom, giving the feel of a lavish spa.
