Which Is Better for Your Bathroom Remodel: Tub vs. Shower
If you’re like many homeowners, your bathroom isn’t large enough to accommodate both a shower and a bathtub. Because of this, as you prepare to upgrade your bathroom with a remodel project, you must decide whether you would rather hop in a shower or soak in a tub? Here are some factors to consider when making this important decision:
How Long Will You Be in Your Home?
If your first inclination is to rip out the tub and replace it with a luxury shower, you might want to tap the brakes if there’s a chance you might sell your home sometime in the not-too-distant future. That’s because you’ll likely eliminate expectant couples and families with small children from the prospect pool if your home doesn’t have a bathtub.
How Large Is Your Bathroom?
The more cramped the space, the more stress for those occupying it. If your bathroom is on the smaller side and you’re interested in replacing your shower with a tub, you might want to make sure that you have the space to do it right. A tub will take up about 15 square feet of floor space, while a shower will only need about 12.
Who’s Occupying the Home?
Young, on-the-move couples and the elderly tend to prefer walk-in showers over tubs due to the ease of access.
