Which Is Better for Your Bathroom Remodel? Tub vs. Shower

If you’ve decided that your bathroom is past its prime and needs to be updated, one of the key decisions you will have to make is whether you want to go with a walk-in shower or a standard bathtub. You may have your personal preferences, but what are some of the factors you should consider before making a decision? Here are some questions to ask yourself before you proceed with your bathroom remodeling project.

How Much Space Does My Bathroom Have?

Walk-In TubBathrooms average about 40 square feet, with a bathtub taking up about 15 square feet of that space. If your bathroom currently has a tub and is too cramped for more than one person at a time, a walk-in shower might be a good option. Showers generally require less space and can open up valuable square footage that can be used for other options.

How Long Do You Expect to Be in Your Home?

While it might be tempting to rip out that old tub and replace it with a walk-in shower, if there’s a possibility you might want to move in the near future, you may want to rethink your plan. Realtors will advise against removing a bathtub because it may eliminate families with young children as potential buyers. However, if your home has a second bathroom with a tub, then feel free to go with a shower.

Is Water Usage a Concern?

With more efficient shower heads available these days, a shower will usually use about 20 gallons of water compared to 30 for a bath. This can result in significant water and energy savings over the course of a full month.

What is Your Budget?

Walk-In ShowerReplacing a bathtub or converting a bath to a shower is less expensive than a complete bath remodel and may be just what your bathroom needs to give it an update.  And remember time is money.  With a tub replacement or shower replacement, the project is usually completed in just one or two days in comparison to a complete bathroom remodel project that may take weeks.

Quality of the windows was superior to the others we looked at. Now, our windows tilt in, so it's going to be much easier to clean them.

Pool House Doors Project

Cold stays out in the winter. Cold stays in during the summer.

The best thing I love is the craftsmanship from NEWPRO. You'd never know we had the old door cut out because it was rotted from the New England weather.
