Looking to transform your bathroom into a sanctuary? A new shower or bathtub may be just the ticket. However, you’ll need to find a fixture that meets your needs and suits your budget. In general, a shower will generally be cheaper and easier to install compared to a bathtub, minimizing the impact on your wallet and the stress involved with your remodel. However, those are not the only factors to consider. A new shower or bathtub is a long-term investment, so you should take the time to select something that will enhance your comfort and serve you well for years to come.
Why Choose a Shower Over a Bathtub
Comparing showers and bathtubs is, in many ways, like comparing apples to oranges. There are many benefits a bathtub offers that a shower does not, and vice versa. Here are a few reasons to choose a shower over a bathtub:
- Space limitations – This is one of the most obvious benefits of installing a shower rather than a bathtub. A smaller bathroom may easily accommodate a shower, while a tub could make the space feel cramped.
- Concerns about water consumption – If you want to lessen your environmental footprint or reduce your monthly water bills, a shower is a good fit.
- Safety – If you have mobility issues or plan to age in place, then you may find a shower to be the superior choice. Consider a low-or no-threshold option with grab bars and a seat for better stability.
Having a Capable Partner Makes All the Difference
You may be tempted to pick a shower over a bathtub because you’re dreading the remodel and are looking for the simplest solution possible. However, when you choose the right partner for your project, your experience will be frustration free regardless of whether you choose a replacement shower or bathtub. Look for someone who will listen to your needs, guide you through your options, and recommend the perfect bath or shower for your space. Jacuzzi Bath Remodel, for example, offers a nationwide network of experts who can match you to the perfect fixture and complete your installation flawlessly in as little as one day.
The Best of Both Worlds: Consider a Tub/Shower Combo
Many modern homeowners have begun transitioning away from bathtubs in favor of showers because they’re too busy to indulge in a warm, relaxing bath. However, you don’t necessarily need to choose one over the other. With a bathtub/shower combo, you’ll have the best of both worlds. You can take a quick shower whenever you’re short on time, but you have the option to take a long soak when you’re looking to relieve muscle aches or melt the stress of the day away.
