We simply took out the old tub/shower combo and built a ceramic and glass shower in the same footprint. Not hard to decide because the ceramic wall around the tub was leaking so it had to be removed and rebuilt anyway. Then we did the same for the other bathroom. Very happy.

The way I look at it is if you are going to stay in the house for at least 5 years, do what makes you happy. If you plan to sell in less than five years, consider resale value. The fact of the matter is if you do away with the tub and put in a big shower, chances are it will not be difficult to add a tub back in down the road. Likewise, if you have a tub, it is pretty easy to convert to just a big shower.
