Bathtub vs. Shower Stall

Considering Your Bathroom Remodel Options

When it comes to a bathroom remodel, there can be a lot of different choices to tackle. Whether it’s picking out the floor tiles, or choosing your new fixtures, each option can make an impact on the look and feel of your new and improved bathroom. 

One major decision many find themselves struggling with is whether or not a bathtub is always needed. For some, a shower stall could be the most space-saving choice, and for others, the look and functionality of a bath is a must. On the other hand, some may have the space and need for both. 

Either way, here are a few things to consider when deciding on a tub, shower stall, or both: 

The Space Saving Choice

For tight spaces or those who don’t find the need to soak in a bath, a shower stall can be just what you need. If your bathroom remodels is occurring in a second bathroom, a shower stall can take up minimum space while still providing a second bathing option in your home.

The Choice That Will Increase Home Value

If you are selling your house in the future, you’ll want to think about the option that will provide sellers with an incentive to buy. If your home is one bathroom, a tub would be the most practical choice, especially for those with children, being that a shower stall can often make bath time complicated for younger kids.

On the other side, a deep-set tub can be hard for older folks to step in and out of. You might want to consider a bathtub that can easily be modified for safety if needed.

The Option to Choose Both

If you have a variety of design options for your bathroom, one thing to consider is adding both a shower and a tub. A corner stall with a variety of water features, along with a designer tub can give you a spa-like experience in the comfort of your own home.
