The idea of a calming bubble bath at the end of a stressful day might be appealing; however, how often are we able to indulge and take the time to enjoy our own spa-like bath? For most people, it happens very rarely or not often at all. Some homeowners may consider baths to be a waste since they are not used. Before converting your tub to a shower, consider the pros and cons of this option.

Pros:

Easier to access. In addition to extra elbow room, larger showers may be handicap accessible; which means that your home may be a place for you to age in place. A large shower, especially those without showers doors, are much easier to access than climbing over the tub.

Turning your bath into a shower can conserve water (depending on the amount of time) and save you money. According to the United State Environmental Protection Agency, "a full bathtub can require up to 70 gallons of water, while taking a 5-minute shower uses only 10 to 25 gallons."

Can add extra square footage to your bathroom. Some showers take up less space than baths, which will free up some of the unused space from a tub.

Cons:

Converting from a tub to a shower can hinder your resale value. This is especially true if you are converting the only tub in your home. It is a major drawback to families with small children.

Showers have the potential to use more water than a bath depending on the amount of time you spend in the shower. Generally, if your shower lasts longer than 10 minutes it uses more water than a tub. Good news is that the average American takes about an 8 minute shower.
