Every person is different, as are our wants and needs for our bathrooms. Depending on the layout of your space, the dynamic in your home, and your own personal preferences, it’s possible that either a bathtub or a shower is the best fit for you. 

That said, there actually is a right answer when it comes to which one will be better for your home’s overall value.

As a professional bathroom remodeling company with over 20 years of industry experience under our belt, US Remodeling Group is familiar with the logistics behind a lot of bathtub and shower remodels, and we wanted to share our knowledge with you before you commit to your bathroom conversion project. 

So, without further ado, let’s dive in. 

Bathtubs, Showers, and Your Home’s Value

The quick answer to how tubs and showers affect your resale value? Installing a shower will increase your home’s value more than if you installed a bathtub. So, if you’re planning to put your home on the market soon, a tub-to-shower conversion is the way to go. 

Why is this?

Current trends indicate that many homeowners rarely use their bathtubs, rendering them a bit of a waste of space. This is because people tend to lead busier and busier lives and simply don’t have the time to enjoy everything a bath has to offer. 

Showers often also bring a more modern, simplistic vibe to a bathroom that fits in more seamlessly with any existing aesthetic, and they don’t feel like they take up as much space either.

The good news is in a lot of ways, you don’t always have to choose between a shower and a bathtub. You can opt for a tub-shower combo or a spa shower with built in seating, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds!
