Getting rid of the bathtub—this is one of the many dilemmas homeowners tackling bathroom remodeling projects struggle to decide on. If you are stuck with this problem, it would be wise to weigh the pros and cons of retaining it and compare them with the pros and cons of converting it into a shower. Another thing to consider is the building codes in your area.
Read on as local bathroom contractor Impact Home Solutions sheds light on the matter in today’s blog post.
Retaining the Bathtub
It might be tempting to replace the tub in your bathroom with the latest trend today—walk-in showers. Realtors, however, would advise against this, especially if you are looking to put your home up for sale. If you do this, you are leaving out certain buyers, including couples expecting a child and families with small children.
Getting Rid of the Bathtub
Ideally, a single bathroom home must have both the tub and shower. If your home has multiple bathrooms, however, you can tackle convert the tub into a shower on one of them. A small guest bathroom would be suitable for this project to give more space to change and get ready. Of course, you’ll want to know the tub replacement cost before you dive into this particular change.
Other Factors to Consider
Getting rid of the tub or retaining it involves other factors. Aging-in-place loved ones, for instance, can benefit from a walk-in shower. If you are planning to start a family, however, you are better off having both features as long as the bathroom space and the local zoning allows.
