If you've still got one of those big, built-in deck tubs, then you might be one of the victims. Fortunately, Design on Tap, a high-end kitchen and bath showroom and a division of the Cregger Company, is well equipped to help you get the retro out of your bath- room. One of the most popular ways of doing that these days is to put in a freestanding tub. And these aren't your old-fashioned, claw-footed beasts. Today's freestanding bathtubs are elegant and modern, and come in lots of designs and materials. Ashley Hyer, the general manager of Design on Tap, says she's seeing most cus- tomers move in that direction. "We've got both contemporary and traditional styles," she says. "The contemporary have more of the clean lines and hard edges, while the tra- ditional ones are more curvy. And there are a multitude of materials—acrylic, cast iron, composite stone." Hyer started the frst Design on Tap showroom in Charleston 11 years ago, and the brand has since expanded to Bluffton and Greenville, South Carolina, as well.
