Tub Free Bathrooms

More and more people are opting to get rid of their bathtub in order to have a larger shower. Reasons for this shift can be, in part, attributed to today's busy lifestyles. Let's face it. How many of you have time for a long soak in the tub.

Another reason for having a shower only bathroom, is to maximize space. If you do not use your tub often, it makes sense to replace your tub with a larger shower. Alternatively you could use the extra space for many things including a closet or an additional vanity.

If you have been considering removing your tub, only do so if it is not the only tub in the house. Not having a tub can be a turnoff to families with young children should you ever sell. Additionally there are some buyers who would like to have a tub so keep that in mind when renovating.

Still considering getting rid of your bathtub? Here are some tubless spaces to get you inspired.
