Ive been conducting detailed anthropological studies by watching an ungodly number of Househunter episodes on HGTV and have come to this conclusion: everyone wants a tub in their master bath. From the 19 year old skater dude all the way up to the 85 year old grandma, they expect a tub in their on-suite, whether they plan to use it or not.

Our architect has broached the subject of not having a tub in our master. It takes too much room for something that doesnt get used much. Therefore, one of the trends in modern home construction is just having a shower in the master (theres always a tub/shower get-up for the other bedrooms, of course). When was the last time you took a bath? he asked. Good question. In our house, my last bath occurred circa 1995. My brides last bath was prolly about the same time. For the record, it was not a shared bath.

Given that fact, Id be ready to proudly shout No tub!!!, but Im not there. In part because my detailed anthropologic studies suggest no tub could mean no sale when the house goes on the market some distant day. The other part is my love of modern stand-alone tubs. Theyre like sculpture! Gorgeous with a capital G. Perhaps a standalone tub instead of our current clawfoot/shower with its substantial prep for tub time will lure more time with the rubber ducky. Perhaps.

To tub or not to tub? That is the question. I think the answer is: Tub.
