Removing bathtub in master ensuite

glowgoodFebruary 10, 2013
I need to change the bathtub in our master ensuite, and am considering removing it and replacing with storage, likely shelves behind sliding mirror doors. Will this devalue the room when time to sell. We never use the tub and have a shower in the room.

You will get answers that range all over the board and will ultimately end up about 50% saying okay and 50% saying no. In our own remodeling business, we find that about half of our customers actually use them and the other half never use them and take them out.

There are hundreds of threads on Houzz regarding this subject. You can find them by going to the houzz search bar, type in master bathtub or similar criteria, select discussions from dropdown box and hit search icon.

If you have at least one tub in the house you will be fine.

Decided to keep the tub, without changing or destroying the tiles, it it possible to replace the tub or better to reglaze so that it is white. Other suggestions?

Re-glazing the tub would be the most cost effective option.
