Basically, it is common for a luxurious bathroom to need a freestanding bathtub. Even if you don’t bathe regularly, the presence of a bathtub suggests indulgence – the extravagance of being able to spend an afternoon in a relaxing bath.
Massive shower rooms may be a trend right now, but tubs don’t go anywhere. According to a 2015 report by the National Kitchen and Bath Association, “more than two-thirds of designers named a freestanding bathtub for main bathrooms in the past year.”

And then fill up with the bubble bath because you will have a new favorite way to relax.
