This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in May of 2020. Acrylic is fast becoming the number one material for bathtubs due to its high-quality finish, durability, and lightweight properties. Modern designs are no longer restricted to basic rectangular tubs that are installed in an alcove with an apron, rather, freestanding models are now becoming the trend as they can create a centerpiece to your bathroom at an affordable price.

Editor's Notes

June 01, 2020:

More than just a place to bathe, modern bathrooms, and especially bathtubs, are a personal place of retreat and relaxation. Just a few short years ago most choices looked the same with only color as an optional variant. Nowadays, however, with the increased strength and versatility provided by using acrylic, the styles and shapes are only limited by the boundaries of our imagination. They can be customized with a range of therapeutic air and water-jet massage systems and styled to coordinate or contrast with sinks, faucets, and hardware.

If you're in need of something to replace an existing bathtub that is located in an alcove, the Kohler Expanse, and the American Standard Studio are both high-quality rectangular options that feature built-in aprons, tile flanges, and aren't pre-drilled, meaning your faucet can be mounted at either end.

Freestanding tubs are often designed without a rim, which looks great, however, they will need to be paired with a wall or floor-mounted faucet. The Ove Decors Houston and the Woodbridge B-0081 are both contemporary options that bring the traditional rectangular shape into the 21st century. Oval shaped tubs, like the Wyndham Collection Juno and the Ove Decors Gianna are elegant in design and really stand out as a centerpiece, as does the AKDY Rose Gold, a double-ended option that has a metallic mosaiced exterior. If you are going for a truly spa-like experience, then the Empava Japanese Air Spa is a compact tub that has an air jet massage system, and the Woodbridge BTS0091 also features a whirlpool function, mood lighting, and is big enough for two.
