Have bathtubs lost their resale value?
Trending Accessibility
June 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Today's trend in renovative construction and aging in place remodeling is a preference towards showers versus bathtubs. What is the general consensus on this matter? Will removing a bathtub affect the resale value of a home?

I can see having both, but tubs need to be more practical & accessible. No more water-guzzling monster tubs, that are difficult to get in out out of! Or "pretty" tubs where even a young, healthy person could easily hurt themselves getting in & out.

I don't think your resale will be effected as long as you have at least one tub in the house. For small kids a tub is a must.

Agreed, there are items / features that are timeless and invaluable to a house.
