Brakur_No_Tub.jpgIt seems one of the newest bathroom trends in 2016 is to ditch the bathroom tub in lieu of an oversized shower. But is that really a good idea or is it something you might regret later? With oversized showers and universal design taking the lead it might seem like a good idea for your custom bathroom. However before you decide to eliminate the tub altogether you will want to consider the following things to see if it is the right thing for your custom bathroom remodel.

What to Consider Before Taking Out the Tub?

  • Number of bathrooms in your home
  • Individuals who will be using the bathroom
  • The impact it can have on your resale value
  • How long you plan on staying in your home
  • How often you use a tub
  • Size of your bathroom

Most realtors will recommend that you keep at least one bathroom with a tub or it can hurt your ability to resell your home later on. However if you don’t ever plan on moving and don’t ever use the tub, then do what works for you. If you are remodeling a master bath and have room, you can save a little money by eliminating the tub and add some living room touches by adding a small loveseat or bench. If you still love a bath every now and then consider a freestanding soaking tub.

At Brakur Custom Cabinetry our bathroom design experts can help you decide if eliminating the tub from your bathroom is the right thing to do. They can show you other custom options such as a built in bookcase or extra storage that you might find more beneficial. They will discuss the pros and cons of having a tub so that you can better decide what is the right decision for your home.
