If you’ve been around Pinterest or have followed home design accounts on any social platform recently, you’ve likely noticed a rise in the black bathtub trend. While more muted colors like whites and grays have been standard in bathroom design for years, and generally have a wider mass appeal, more and more people have been opting for more style-forward, edgier choices like black bathtubs.
Are Black Bathtubs in Style?
While everyone’s taste in home design is different, it’s safe to say that black bathtubs are definitely in style and have been super popular over the past couple years – with that popularity only rising recently. They are stylish, classy and bold. Black complements a vast variety of options. Plus, our black bathtubs are available in matte and gloss finishes to suit your bathroom design style.
Forbes states, “In recent years, bathrooms have transformed from purely functional spaces to rooms where homeowners want to make a statement, which is why black is a perfect choice. It’s always sophisticated and enduringly chic, and it makes a strong impression in a small space.” Whether you are creating a statement with a black bathtub as a centerpiece or tiling your bathroom in black, experts say that this trend isn’t going anywhere.
Are Black Bathtubs Hard to Keep Clean?
One of the most common questions we receive about black bathtubs is whether or not they are harder to keep clean than their white counterparts. And something people are sometimes surprised to hear, is that they are just as easy to keep clean as white bathtubs.
