Lose the Tub Without Losing Value

How long has it been since you had a nice, long bubble bath? I bet you can’t remember…but I’m sure you took a shower today! 

If you’re like many, when bathing, you certainly like a nice home and bathroom, but the faster and easier, the better. We are noticing that homeowners are caring less about a seldom used master bathtub (as long as their home has at least one bathtub elsewhere in the home) and prefer an enlarged, spacious shower.

The National Association of Realtors advises homeowners who are considering a bathroom remodeling project and its impact on resale value to understand this – as long as their home has at least one bathtub, changing from a tub/shower to a shower only in the master bathroom doesn’t negatively impact their home’s resale value.

JohannaDallas Realtor Johanna Mattox shares, “There certainly appears to be a new trend toward master bathrooms without a bathtub – as more people are opting for a larger walk-in shower. Judging from some of the showers I’ve seen, on social media and in person, who can blame them! The better contractors around town, along with all the new materials and shower gadgets out there, are taking showers to a whole new level. They’re unbelievable…beautiful!”
