Oversized soaker tub vs storage

Darcy ReaumeDecember 25, 2012
I have a very long, narrow bathroom with an oversized tub taking up the majority of the available space. I would love more storage and the tub is somewhat useless, as the water is cold by the time the tub is full.

I'm wondering if its worth replacing the tub with a stand-in shower and some built-in storage in terms of resale value.
Keep the tub
Loose the tub

The trend we are seeing with our clients is a preference for replacing tubs with bigger showers. However, If you have a tub elsewhere in the house then replace with a shower and add a tall linen cabinet. If no other tub, then replace existing tub with smaller tub and add storage. Both options assume you can move the tub drain and supply lines cost effectively.

I'd add a shower unit above tub (unless you have one) and glass sliding shower doors.

I agree with a shower in addition to the tub.
