How to Choose Between a Walk-In Shower or Tub in Saddle Rock Estates Bathroom Remodel

Bathroom remodels are one of the most popular renovation projects but since the choices seem endless, many homeowners have a difficult time choosing the design or finishes. For example, choosing between a walk-in shower or a freestanding tub might be a decision that presents itself if having both is either not in the budget or there is not enough square footage.

Your personal taste and preference will take precedence when making this decision, but here are a couple questions to answer to make the decision easier.

How is the bathroom used?

This question should help determine whether to add a walk-in shower or tub. Is it the master bathroom, a guest bathroom that an elderly in-law uses or a children’s bathroom? The functionality of the bathroom will help with your choice.

How much space is there?

If you’re tight on space, a walk-in shower will be a better choice. Soaker and standalone tubs can add a luxurious feel to the bathroom, but they take up a good amount of square footage in the room.

Walk-In Showers are:

  • More convenient
  • Better for those with mobility issues
  • Use less water

Tubs are:

  • Easier with small children
  • Provide relaxation
  • Baths can relieve sore muscles

There are multiple factors that go into making a decision between a tub and a walk-in shower. Ultimately, it will come down to who uses the bathroom the most and how much space you’re working with.
