Modern freestanding tubs have never been more popular. Modern is currently the most popular bathroom style in the U.S. and freestanding flat-bottom bathtubs are the most popular bathtub style, according to data from the 2021 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study. These styles also reigned supreme in 2020, the last time Houzz surveyed home remodelers in the United States.
Modern style freestanding tubs typically have a flat bottom, with a thin, flat rim, and the clean, minimalistic lines frequently utilized in modern interior design. Most modern tub designs feature oval, rectangular, or round shapes. According to HGTV, modern freestanding tubs function almost like “sculpture for your bathroom” as they “tend to have distinct sides and smooth contours, which allows them to become focal points for the bathroom.” Functional, sleek, and elegant, modern soaking tubs make a great addition to any modern classic, modern minimalist, modern farmhouse, mid century modern, urban modern, or transitional style bathroom.
