As a bath remodeler company, Premium Design LLC often gets asked the question – what’s better to install, a shower or a bathtub? The answer isn’t simple as some might think. Depending on the homeowners lifestyle, family size, and overall preference, there are many things to consider.
According to a survey that Premium Design LLC has conducted, homeowners claim to use their bathtub anywhere from 1-3 times a year. While some claim to have only used it once in the last 3-4 years, others have stated that they never actually used it to begin with. This is all considering that they do have a bathtub in their home of course. But what does this mean for the home in terms of home value? Well, often times, potential clients actually prefer to have a larger custom shower vs. having a small shower and a bathtub – especially in the younger demographic. This of course translates to a better value for your home if you were to have just a large walk-in shower with no tub.
For many people, walk in showers have become a form of therapy - and the bigger the shower, the more space for therapy sessions. Many view the shower as a relief, and prefer to have a luxurious custom shower over a bathtub. This way, homeowners have customization in their bathroom, and this allows for custom work designed to the owners own style through their local bathroom contractor.
All in all, Premium Design LLC has come across many individuals that would have preferred having just a shower, but because of their fear of losing value in their home, they resorted to having both.
