Incorrect. Many adults really do enjoy baths. Many enjoy them as a relaxing luxury. For people with arthritis soaking in a hot bath can bring pain relief. People with eczema take medicated baths. Some people just prefer baths.
I will never, ever buy a house that does not have a bathtub.
We currently have a huge, very nice glass shower and no bathtub. My fiancée bought this house two years before we started dating and had the bathroom remodeled. One of the changes he made was to have the tub replaced with a shower only. I would not have agreed to it had I been here at the time. I had a huge tub at my old house and loved it so much. I sometimes took a glass of wine and a book or my phone and locked myself in and lounged for an hour or more. It’s so cozy, especially in the winter. We have an appointment with the contractor this week to see about re-remodeling the bathroom and I can’t wait to have my own pouting area back.
Well we do have one tub already. The house has 3 full baths. One just has a shower, one a tub/bath, and this one DID have a tub/bath but as I said, I’m considering doing just a shower since its a small space.
We remodelled our main bathroom four years ago. It did have a bath, with a shower over it (it was a very small room). No one had used the bath, except to stand in while having a shower for over 20 years, so I was glad to get rid of it and have a decent size shower recess.
I shower twice a day, but still have a bath once or twice a week - either to have a really thorough soak/scrub (notwithstanding bullshit arguments about it being impossible to get clean if you’re sitting in bath water), or for relaxation.
Also, a bath is a good backup if the shower breaks.
Well that’s the thing. We might be selling within the next year or two and I want to make the bathroom follow the popular trends. Which might just be to have no tub but a larger shower and possibly even on of those double shower head arrangements. One should always be looking at resale whenever they do a remodeling project.
