Remodeling your bathroom is an effective way to significantly increase the resale value of your home, in addition to elevating your bathroom experience by making it easier to maintain, and even conserving water.

At Plumb Doctor, we have accumulated years of experience in remodeling bathrooms at Greenwood residences. With our help, we can effectively elevate your bathroom to the next level and make your dreams come true.
Bathtub VS Shower
There are a number of decisions you’ll have to make when determining what components to include in your new bathroom. Outside of the general aesthetic and organization, you’ll have to figure out which fixtures to have installed, such as sinks, toilets, and bathtubs or showers. While the first two are somewhat straightforward, the latter two can be harder to narrow down. Should you opt to get a new bathtub? Shower? Both? Or perhaps some sort of hybrid, combining the two.
Here are the things you should consider when deciding which plumbing fixture to have installed.
Why is the Purpose of the New Fixture? Are you remodeling your bathroom to be the ideal master bath, accommodating the needs of yourself and your spouse? Consider your preferences when it comes to methods of hygiene. Do you plan to spend the rest of your life using it, or are you expecting to move away in a few years? Bathtubs are generally better when it comes to increasing resale value. Are you installing a new bathroom for an elderly parent or someone with limited mobility? Shower stalls are usually far more accessible and ADA compliant than tubs. The answer to these questions can help you start to narrow down your options.
How Much Space Do You Have? If you have an extremely limited space, a bathtub may not be a realistic choice. Bathtubs take up 13 square feet of space on average, while showers only take up 9 square feet. Even if your bathroom can accommodate the larger size, you should also consider what other elements you plan to include in your bathroom. If you’re interested in adding in an extra vanity, storage closet, or his and hers sinks, then you’ll need the extra room.
What is Your Budget? Consider how much money you intend to spend on this project, as well as how interested you are in cutting costs in the future. Generally speaking, bathtubs are cheaper to install than showers. However, showers often lead to reduced water consumption when compared to baths, lowering your water bill. If you’re looking to conserve water, then paying a little extra upfront may be worth it later on.
