Shower Stall vs. Bath Tub

Few decisions can be as personal as whether you want a bathtub or a shower stall when remodeling your home bathroom. After all, washing yourself is a daily activity, so you’ll need to ensure that the choice you make is suitable to your own preferences, and also to the design of your bathroom.

There are number of pros and cons that apply to each choice, regardless of preference, so if youre having some difficulty making the decision on your own, it makes sense to consider the following factors.

Reasons to Install a Shower Stall

A shower is easier to use. If you’re renovating your bathroom and are considering a shower stall, keep in mind that some styles come with additional options meant to help those who would have difficulty getting into a bathtub. With curbless shower installation, you can even give homeowners the wheelchair or walker accessibility that they need

Showers offer homeowners plenty of options when it comes to design and price Whether you want to create a "floating" obscured glass door or want to fashion the walls to match your existing decor, showers have hundreds of options from which you can choose. If you’re trying to install a shower system on a budget, a fiberglass or acrylic kit makes it easy to do the whole process yourself. If you choose tiled shower walls, you can get an inexpensive and timeless look that’s easy to keep clean.

Showers don’t use quite as much water.With showers, it can be quite easy to manage the amount of water that you use, especially if you install a low-flow shower faucet and only run the water for ten minutes or less. The especially savvy homeowner can save even more water by turning it off while lathering up.

Bathroom Shower

Reasons to Install a Bath Tub

It increases the value of the home. Real estate brokers have advised homeowners that most buyers are looking for houses that have at least one bathtub. If your home only has one or two bathrooms, it might be best to err on the side of caution and opt for a bathtub-shower combo in at least one of them. Also, be sure to consider the neighborhood. If the community is comprised mostly of young people or new parents, it may be likely that they’ll prefer a tub.

Built-in bathtubs save space, and bathtub-showers offer the best of both worlds For those who don’t want to have to make a full commitment to either system, a built-in bathtub-shower combo makes it easy to conserve space. Some would consider this "having your cake and eating it too," but we prefer to think of it as pure logic. You can’t take a bath in a shower stall, after all, but you can take a shower in a bathtub.

Claw foot bathtubs can make a statement. As comfortable as they are elegant, a deep-seated claw foot bathtub can act as a centerpiece for the whole bathroom. If your life revolves around the leisure that a bath provides, there is simply no other option than a genuine claw foot bathtub.

At the end of the day, whether you install a bathtub or a shower depends solely on your preference. Regardless of your home’s resale value or even the existing design of your bathroom, your comfort should be the defining factor when it comes to making a decision of this magnitude.
