Should I Install a Bathtub or Shower? September 1, 2020

Should I Install a Bathtub or Shower?, Honolulu, Hawaii

Many homeowners update their living spaces to accommodate their changing needs and lifestyles. Starting a bathroom remodeling project is an excellent way to begin tailoring the home since you spend a significant amount of time in that room. One of the many decisions you’ll have to make is whether the space should have a tub or shower. If you’re torn between the two, use this guide to help you decide.

Bathtub

Tubs come in an array of colors, styles, and materials, from vintage-inspired clawfoot designs to chic marble soakers. The wide variety makes it easy to find one that matches the aesthetic you want to achieve with the bathroom remodeling project.

If you experience chronic pain, a jetted tub can provide a light massage to alleviate any discomfort. Additionally, people with limited mobility can benefit from walk-in models since they feature doors that make it easy to enter and exit.

Shower

bathroom remodelingAlthough adding an enclosed shower is an investment, it typically only takes up nine square feet. As a result, this option is ideal if the bathroom has a small floor plan, and you can enclose the area in glass to maintain long sightlines.

Eco-conscious homeowners prefer showers because they can add a low-flow head to save water—this also translates to utility savings. Other types of fixtures can be installed above your head, creating a soothing, rain-like effect. If you have mobility challenges, maintain your independence by installing grab bars and a bench in the shower.
