    New bathtub or stand up shower?

    I need to replace the tub and I'm debating on getting a shower installed. Would it be bad for resale value?

    I live in a 3bdr/1bath house, and you rarely find any 2 bathrooms in my area unless you by a newer house. I personally don't mind only having a shower, but I could see how some may not like that option if they have kids. Whirlpool tubs are overrated in my opinions, so that’s out. That being said, typically everyone looking to buy my house would be single or married without kids.

    I'm also assuming it will cost a lot more to convert the tub to a shower than to replace the tub, so it may not be a good investment choice anyway.

    As someone who was recently house hunting, one bathroom with only a shower would have been a dealbreaker for me. I was even unhappy if a house had 2 bathrooms and the master bathroom only had a shower. Then again, I'm a chick, picky, take baths on occasion myself, and intend to have kids of my own while living in said house (in the next 2-3 years). So perhaps I'm not the person who would have been looking at your house in the first place.

    We did find a house near Shoal Creek/2222 and are closing on Monday. It has two bathtubs. Not that that needs to be noted on this thread for any reason. I'm just excited.

    Tub for resale value. Women won't buy a house unless it has one.

    Tub for resale value and it's much easier to install without worrying whether or not your contractor properly waterproofed your shower pan.

    Tub. But not any tub. A freestanding bathtub! Picture suggestions:

    If you're down for a conventional approach:


    And if you have a lot of money to pour into this remodel:

    Unless you are a 3 years old or 83 years old or a single woman with a lot of cats and scented candles, you should never want to bathe in a tepid pool of your own filth. Standup showers with multiple heads...

    i wacked the tub in my master when i remodeled... my wife wanted a big garden tub (to never take a bath in)... i made her pick one... she went with... "ok, make it a big shower."

    depending on where you live (are you heights-ish?) it may not matter. your 3/1 is probably not a 'family' home (any more) so a tub is not a big deal... when do you think you plan to move out? if soon, keep it fairly standard (nice). if no plan to move, do what you want to do with YOUR house.

    We just remodeled our master bathroom last year. It had a tub and shower before. We threw out the tub and completely redid the shower with multiple heads. I love my shower. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

    did that maplewood house have a tub?

    tubs are good for washing kids for a couple years... my 3 year old takes showers.
