Large Tubs in Master Baths Often Go Unused – and That’s a Great Place for a Larger Shower
Since you’ve been shopping for your perfect home or building your dream home, chances are you wanted to have a nice and large master bathroom. A large bathroom is luxurious, and it gives you all the space you need to bathe, shave, and get ready in peace and comfort. However, there’s a very good chance you might be misusing some of the space in your bathroom. Do you have a large tub in your home now? Most of the master baths, especially those that are several years old, or older, have huge tubs. When you first bought the place (or if you’re still looking to buy), you might’ve envisioned yourself sitting in the tub a couple of times a week, relaxing and unwinding with a book. How many times did that happen?
You probably did not get to do much relaxing in there, and now it’s just wasting space (and water for when you do decide to have a bath). You have another option though. You might want to remodel the bathroom and add a large shower, or change your vision to a large shower instead of a large tub. Consumer Reports talks about some of the things that you should and should not do when you are remodeling your home.
You have a number of different options when it comes to remodeling with a nice, large shower. You can use tile or even stone in the bathroom which is popular with our current renovations. Stone looks great and it is easy to keep clean. In fact, it often times looks so good our shower remodels often decide to remodel the entire bathroom.
One of the fears that we hear of some people having when it comes to taking out the tub and putting in a shower is that it could hurt the resale value of the home. When you have a beautiful, large shower that impresses people who see it, you do not have to worry about the value diminishing! Always make sure you talk with professionals as ourselves about the options you have for your new shower and what they can do for your bathroom.
