Jacuzzi and Jetted Tubs

According to April Gandy, the main designer at Alluring Designs Chicago, jetted bathtubs are officially outdated. She explained that jacuzzi tubs are simply a thing of the past, as people aren’t interested anymore in maintaining and cleaning the jetted bathtubs.

As an alternative, freestanding soaker tubs are much easier to maintain, cost less, and will never require the amount of space the jetted tubs do. In fact, Sara Malek Barney from BANDD/DESIGN strongly agrees. As she said, bulky, oversized tubs are completely impractical, and the new technology features we can access come with many other conveniences.

  1. Well this is great, who has the money to remodel their bathrooms every 5-10 years at $10k each, so not practical

  2. Guess what the new trend is everybody? It’s called do it your way!!! Don’t listen to all the trends that make you feel like your bathroom is less than. I love doing things my way! That’s what makes me feel the best. You certainly do not have to go out and spend a bunch of money just to have a bathroom that is up to date, according to something you see online or read in a magazine.

  3. Some of the things are definitely relevant and out dated. However, I definitely disagree with a few things and just take them as someone else’s opinion:
    JET TUBS – I replaced a regular tub with a jet tub. It fit in the same space and the maintenance is no more trouble than that on the old tub. Plus, I enjoy it from the few times that I use it.
    FRAMELESS MIRRORS – The usefulness of the large frameless mirror out does any current fashion trend. They’re great.
    DOUBLE SINKS – not sure what you’re talking about here. The additional counter space that comes with a double sink is a very welcomed advantage.

  4. Spend a ton of money upgrading your bathroom that was upgraded five years ago then find out that, in one year, it is too dated and must be upgraded again. Cars don’t depreciate that fast.
