Why Install a Shower Instead of a Bathtub?

Jul 6 2022

Even if you enjoy regular soaks in the tub, you still might want to at least consider installing a shower instead of a bathtub if you’re remodelling the bathroom.

It’s well known that kitchen and bathroom renovations add the most value to your home. And, perhaps most importantly if you’re staying in your home, they are the renovations most enjoyed by homeowners.

And those are just two of the reasons why you should install a shower instead of a bathtub.

4 More Reasons To Install a Shower

1. Adds Even More Value to Your Home

When you get rid of your bathtub, it opens up lots of space. Space enough for a walk-in shower. If you look at just about any bathroom or home remodelling website or magazine, you’ll see that beautifully-designed walk-in showers have become very popular and in-demand.

2. Creates Space

While we’re on the subject of space, installing a shower instead of a bathtub is a smart choice if your space is limited. Whether you’re in a condo or small home, bathtubs can take up lots of square footage. You can use the added space for extra storage for towels and toiletries.

3. For Ageing in Place

If you plan to stay in your home for a while, you may want to consider your future needs. Bathtubs are not easy to get into and out of if you have mobility issues. But showers, especially those with shower benches, can be enjoyed by people of all abilities.

4. Saves Money

Showers use less water, including less hot water, than bathtubs. Up to 70% less. That means lower water bills, and, even better, lower energy bills. Of course, you’ll be doing your part to help save the environment too!
