When’s the last time you took a bath? Truth is most bathtubs go largely unused. That’s why many master bathroom remodels include removal of the tub to make space for a larger, more luxurious walk-in shower.
Showering a master bathroom remodel
An upgraded bathroom helps sell a home and can be a good investment. Top of the list among designers is a larger, airy shower.
“It’s a common misconception that bathtubs are important for resale,” says TriFection’s Jeff Reina. “We’ve seen the opposite: master bathroom remodel projects with a walk-in shower actually attract buyers.”
In this case, removing the tub made room for a larger shower space featuring a frameless glass, and a bench with in the shower. Because of the size, there’s no longer a need for a door either. This master bathroom remodel retained some elements of the original space: countertops and cabinets, for instance. Plus, a large glass-block window that once overlooked the unused tub now provides a perfect backdrop for a drying area bench just outside the shower.
More space. More options. That’s what happens when you let go of a tub that’s seldom used in favor of a shower you’ll truly enjoy.
