Decide whether you want a bathtub
“To bathtub or not to bathtub” was probably Shakespeare’s original conundrum for Hamlet. After all, Danish castles are expensive to keep up, and showers were just coming in at the turn of the 17th Century. For modern homeowners looking to capitalize on space, this question can be a big one.
Traditional bathrooms usually have bathtubs, but our need to soak seems to be in decline. Maybe it’s because life is getting quicker, but most Americans now prefer showering over taking a bath. Baths also use a considerable amount of water compared to showers.
Are you the kind of person who takes full advantage of the utter relaxation a bath can provide? Then fitting it into your bathroom remodel will be a big yes. Luxury bathtubs are best in a master en-suite where you can soak in peace, away from anything else going on in the house.
If you plan to put your house on the market anytime soon, you may want to keep at least one bathtub. If you’re planning on staying in your home for many years, then feel free to ignore that advice, and convert all your tubs to luxury showers. You may never look back.
Lighting is something that a lot of people forget about when designing a new bathroom. But you’ll instantly recognize bad bathroom lighting when you see it, and it can completely destroy the look and utility of the space.
