Stand alone bathtubs are becoming more popular for people who enjoy a good soak. Bak is becoming more of a focal point of the bathroom though. With the popularity of decorative bathtubs, all bathrooms are often designed around the bathtub itself. This is a far cry from the tile in the bath from the 50s and 60s.
