Do I still need a Tub and Shower Combination?
Updated: Jul 27
Tubs are good for soaking, but how often do we really use them? Sometimes life means we still need both. A traditional tub and shower combination is still the answer. Maybe its just time to get a deeper tub or change out the builder grade and get something more durable.
There is a reason tub and shower combinations are the most common combination in most households. They're practical, they’re efficient and give you the benefit of choice; quick shower or long soak in the tub.
While these traditional combinations have been fixtures have been in most bathrooms for many years the recent trend has been to eliminate them altogether. They've been replaced with walk-in showers, walk-in tubs, tub to shower conversions, or even a stand-alone shower and a stand-alone tub. So. What should you do? Tub, Shower, or Both?
Do you have kids? Do you have multiple bathrooms to accommodate the lack of a tub or additional needs to accommodate accessibility needs? Do you plan on selling your house in the future?
While we tend to use our shower in most cases much more, make sure you consider all options before you decide a tub and shower combination is no longer needed. Whatever option you choose, make the decision that fits your family's needs.
