For many of our clients who rarely use their tubs, it seems that an awesome shower is the right answer for them. They can’t wait to yank out their old dust-collecting tub and replace it with a sleek-looking, glassed-in, dreamy shower.
One of the biggest reasons some of our clients choose to dump their tub is space. They would rather forego the tub and use that space for something that fits their lifestyle better – perhaps a larger shower with a seat, maybe more storage that includes drawers, and even another sink. Basically, what I’m saying here is that doing away with the large tub allows for more flexibility with the overall design of the space.
Some of our clients don’t care about space as much as they just want a big walk-in shower with glass walls and all the bells and whistles, such as overhead, wall-mounted and hand-held multi-function showerheads, thermostatic temperature controls, and steam features. They also want bench seats for added comfort and safety and built-in wall niches to hold soap and shampoo.
I bet I know what you’re thinking now – “If I do end up choosing to dump my tub, how will that decision affect the resale of my home”? Most realtors believe preserving at least one bathtub somewhere in the home keeps the door open for buyers who prefer baths or for buyers who have young kids.
At the end of the day, it’s your house and it absolutely must fit your needs. So, whether you prefer showers or baths or a little of both, we’re here to help design a fantastic master bathroom that perfectly fits your needs.
