While a bathtub is a common feature in a traditional bathroom, they do not always get a lot of use. In fact, according to research, most people prefer a shower over a tub for bathing. That is why most homeowners are choosing to leave the bathtub out of their bathroom remodel project. The annual Home Design Trend survey revealed that as much as 65% of people desired a stall shower without a tub. If you have been considering eliminating a traditional bathtub from the equation, here are five reasons why it might be ideal for you:
Make Room for Your Dream Shower
If you are thinking of building the large shower of your dreams, you should consider going tubless. By eliminating the bathtub, you can make room for a spacious shower stall.
Increase the Space in a Small Bathroom
Does it feel like your small bathroom is overcrowded? This can be especially so if you have a freestanding tub. In many small bathrooms, the shower enclosure is tucked into the corner of the bathroom and hidden by a shower curtain. A bathroom occupied by a sizeable, clunky tub takes up most of the square footage. If you desire a lighter and airer space, going tubless can help such a small space feel and look bigger than it actually is.
Tubless Shower Stalls are Super Functional
Many homeowners choose to eliminate a tub from the bathroom for a freestanding shower tub because it increases functionality. In homes with elderly or disabled residents, freestanding showers are mobility friendly. Shower stalls without a tub enclosure provide a low entry-way making it easy to get in and out of the space.
It Does Not Have to Be Expensive
If you are not ready to take on an expensive full bathroom remodel project, no worries. You can go tubless without moving your shower. You can seek out contractors who have experience performing tub to shower conversions to save money. Look into your options, and you may be surprised by the possibilities.
