Are You A Tub Or A Shower Person?

Bathroom projects are big.  Every home has one and others have multiple baths.  Except in rare cases, the bathrooms we get calls about are in functional condition. But that’s not all we want from the smallest rooms in our homes.  Nope, we need them to be the rooms that transform us each day.  Rooms that keep our kids happy and trick them into getting ready for bed.   We long for them to be our private sanctuaries…a “Calgon take me away” spot.  It’s a lot to ask of such small real estate.  Tub vs shower.  That is a big question.

Tub vs Shower

When planning a bath project we ask some personal questions!  To be fair, we’d never ask you anything we wouldn’t share the answer ourselves.  So here we go….“Are you a tub or a shower person?”  While you are pondering your answer let’s take a look at some of our past Friday Favorites. You may just change your mind!

“I’d love to take enough time out of my busy life to soak a bit each day.  Right now it is just not going to happen!  When it does, a pretty spot and a view are on my wish list.”-Kristen

“I am among the few who prefer a tub over a shower.  I know, I’ve read all the reasons to not “bathe ” this way.   I’ve always been a bit of a rebel! For me tho, it’s the one thing that relaxes me and I look forward to it as often as possible. However, I do love a good ole outdoor shower!” -Laurel

No matter what the size of your room, or budget, investing in your bath is always a good idea.  Simple updates, a complete remodel,  or a little extra planning with new construction, will all pay off. Enjoy it yourself now and do it for your buyer later.
