Should I Have a Bathtub or Shower?

When bathroom remodels are being planned, many people ask themselves if the bathtub is necessary. This all depends on your lifestyle.

Do You Take More Showers than Baths?

People often use the bathroom more than just to bathe, sometimes it is used just to relax a little while. Some enjoy a bath while others enjoy a long shower. This is always a personal preference.

Bathtub People

Taking a bath can be time consuming in itself. Often the tub gets a good scrub down before use. Then you have the time it takes to fill the tub. This can increase the time it actually takes to enjoy your bath in the tub.

Water Usage

We are all concerned about water usage now a days. There is a reason for Xeriscaping and low usage toilets and appliances. It takes about 70 gallons of water for a tub to fill. A long shower can use as little as 25 gallons.

Walk in Shower Benefits

Walk in showers offer many benefits over tub showers. Number one would be safety. Bathrooms can be wet and slippery. The last thing you need to worry about is stepping over a high tub wall. Walk in showers can provide you with grab bars and even shower benches to enjoy your relaxation even more.

Home Resale Value

Most homes now have at least two bathrooms. Having at least one tub is fine. This allows you to be able to convert one bathroom to have a walk in shower without affecting the value of your home. Having an all glass walk in shower can also help to open up the entire bathroom and give it more space.
