Large Showers vs Traditional Bathtubs

By Bryan Slowick | Aug 14, 2020

Whether you are remodeling a hall bathroom or looking to create a stunning master bathroom, there is a new trend in bathroom renovations. Homeowners are often choosing to forego the traditional bathroom layout, and instead opt for a new functional option! We see bathtubs becoming a debatable bathroom necessity! What do you think, is a bathtub a must or is a large walk-in shower something you dream of?

 

LARGE SHOWERS

As our schedules become more and more jam packed, we are always looking for ways to unwind at the end of the day. A long warm bath may not be your style, but maybe a hot steam shower is. There are several things to consider when remodeling your bathroom, and creating a large walk in shower in your master bathroom is a luxurious option to consider!

 

Here are some of the most popular shower features to consider for your new space:

  • Rainfall shower heads
  • Hand held body sprayers
  • Steam units
  • Dual shower heads
  • Heated floors
  • Room for a bench
  • No threshold (curbless)
  • Remote control pads in the shower stall and outside the stall

TRADITIONAL BATHTUBS

Candles, a quiet room, and a large soaking bathtub may be the perfect ending to a long stressful day at work. A stunning freestanding bathtub can often be a focal point of a beautiful bathroom layout. Bathtubs provide the perfect space to incorporate architectural details and even some classical or modern design elements. A beautiful clawfoot, free-standing tub can be an instant design focal point. There are plenty of options available if you are incorporating the timeless bathtub in your remodel.

 

Here are some of the most popular bathtub options:

  • Soaking tubs
  • Jetted tubs
  • Extra long tubs 
  • Clawfoot tubs
  • Air Jet 
  • Tubs with room for 2
  • Adding a door to create a sense of privacy
