There comes a point in one’s life when one opts to have their bathroom remodeled. One of thе рrimаrу rеаѕоnѕ fоr doing thiѕ iѕ thаt there becomes a time when the bathrooms need to be more functional, or so many repairs are needed so why not update the appearance while at it.

This was our situation. We had a builder grade bathroom which held pretty well considering it’s gone through four kids, three of whom are boys. Needless to say, it has seen it’s last days. The tub was getting a crack in it and no matter how clean it was it looked infested, like something out of a gas station.

Nеvеrthеlеѕѕ, renovating thе bathroom, as small of an area аѕ it may bе, is nоt an easy thing tо do. When it comes to remodeling a bathroom, there are a few choices that one may consider.

Our biggest struggle was to choose between a tub shower combo or just a walk-in shower and we are not alone. Many homeowners get stuck on this question. Both styles have their pros and cons.

Check out what we decided to go within our shower remodel.

  • We have both. Shower for daily use. I have a claw foot tub that I absolutely love. Deep & comfortable…love it. My daughters claw foot we made into a combo; tub/shower for hers. Unless I lived in a warm climate year round, I don’t think I could go without either.

  • Great post! I’ve always wanted to tear out my shower insert and place a soaking tub but with a shower attachment! It would be the best of both worlds for me!

    Love your page, by the way, we are into similar stuff!

  • We’re in the middle of a bathroom remodel right now! After going back and forth a few times, we’ve decided to leave a tub in it since our other bathroom only has a walk-in shower. Great article about making that choice!

  • Very thorough exploration of bathtub vs shower! I personally prefer showers. However there are times a good soak in the tub is just what I need. And as a realtor I know potential buyers most often prefer having both in the house they purchase.

  • These are great points. I just remodeled our shower, and had thought about changing it into a shower/tub combo. In the end, it was just so much easier to stick with shower only. We do though have a tub in another bathroom, so it was not as much of a challenge.

  • Great points to consider here! We are still a few years away from a bath remodel in this house, but will have to keep these in mind.
