Need advice for a Master Bath redo
March 16, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Our master bath has a separate shower enclosure & a large built in tub. The shower is a molded fiberglass unit and as spacious as a coffin. My husband wants to remove the tub & shower and make a large tiled shower only. I would prefer to change to a freestanding tub and a tiled shower larger than we currently have. Does it de-value or impact the resale of a home for the Master Bath to have a shower but no tub?

Is there another bathroom with a tub on the same level?

If the ensuite is done 'right' then potential buyers could possibly overlook the lack of a tub.

I am finding that the buyers today really want the large spa shower - and not the tub. As long as there is a tub elsewhere in the house (guest/kids bath).

Rachel, there is one shower/tub combo on the 2nd floor hall bath. The main floor has the master and also a half bath. We have a finished basement with an oversize shower (is that considered a 3/4 bath?) I know the spa theme is really big now and I am seeing a lot of soaking tubs. I am the only one who uses the tub, so my husband feels it is unnecessary but I didn't want to jeopardize our future ability to sell the home (no time soon).
