A bathroom renovation is a big project, and many people get stuck on the decision, tub or shower? If you are not sure what to do, the best Jamaica Estates plumber encourages you to think about several factors. First, get input from anyone who will regularly be using the bathroom. If it is a bathroom the whole family uses, it may be important to have a tub. While some might prefer a shower, maybe there is an important reason why some need to soak in a bathtub. Like giving mom the chance to soak after a long day or washing a young child.
Next, consider the household bathroom situation. Is it the only bathroom in the house? If there is another one that has a bathtub, then converting one of them to a shower would be fine for most households. For those that need a bathtub, there is still one available. A glass shower with a rainfall or pulse massaging shower head is certainly a popular option these days.
Perhaps one of the biggest factors in deciding between a tub and shower is resale. If you are planning on staying in your home for the next ten years, you can choose whatever makes the most sense for your family, but if you are planning to list your house for sale, it is a good idea to have a bathtub. The reason is, many buyers on the market are families with young children who require a tub for bathing. If you have no bathtub in your home, you automatically limit your amount of potential buyers. This often results in a home that sits on the market longer. Lacking a specific amenity can also end up with your home sale resulting in a lower sale price.
Bathroom remodeling projects are fun, but also require some big decisions. Converting tubs to large, modern showers is the trend lately, but it is not always the right decision.
