Bathtub Vs. Shower in the Bathroom: Which One Do You Need?

Admit it – the bathtub from the film you just watched caught your attention. More often than not, you are tempted to take a quick plunge of relaxation, surrounded with fragrant, aromatic bath bombs. That rosy lavender smell from the soothing warm water is calling you and tempting you – but then you realize, you have a shower.

Exactly which between the bathtub and the more-common shower should you choose? Below, TGR weighed four considerations that you must ponder on before continuing with the renovation.

Assess the family members residing in the house: are there children, or the elderly? For a home full of kids, a tub might be a great choice.

Meanwhile, the tub has an average of 36 gallon-requirement in order to be full, making the shower the winner of the match. It’s a different story, however, when you spend 45 minutes in the shower. That way, a bathtub will definitely work better for you.

In actuality, all renovation choices come down to this question: how much is your expected amount of investment? Changing an already-existing tub with a newer basin might cost you a cheaper price, but remodeling your bathroom and doing a shift from a shower to a bath (or vice versa) might be more expensive. It is best to pair your remodeling purpose with your budget, to ensure that you are making the right renovation decision.
