Iím redoing a bathroom. Keep the tub or replace it with a shower?

For a one bedroom shower only works. If there will ever be a family living there they like at least one tub in the house. Does that help? --99.203.xx.x

Build ceramic walls around the tub and you end up with both, pex tubing will be helpful to replace anything ugly when the walls are open.

I've found that families with younger children need & want tubs. Once the kids become teenagers everyone takes showers. Knowing who your targeted market is, should help you make an informed decision.

Recently I've seen a trend for my remodeling clients to convert at least one bath so it has a walk in curbless shower with grab bars. Even owners in their late 40's have been doing this.

I suppose that if you didn't want young children in your unit, the lack of a tub might help reduce the chance of families with young kids from applying. This could possibly help LLs whose units contain lead paint. --96.237.xx.xx

I'm confused, if you have a tub, you would also have a shower?

But of course, if you only have a shower, then you don't have a tub --50.4.xxx.x

As noted, it depends on your target. Personally I would never rent a place without a comfortable tub. My DIL wouldn't take a bath if you paid her, she considers them dirty LOL! --50.82.xxx.xx

unless your target audience is family I would decide on a shower in a fraction of a second --73.182.xxx.xxx

Taking either one away will limit your tenant pool. Tubs come in handy for more than bathing. Store water in them to flush if there is a water emergency. Wash some clothes in an emergency. Wash the dog in winter if you allow a pet. I can't think of any more maybe someone else can. I only shower because I refuse to wallow in filth. Tubs can cause infections for women from sitting in that water so a shower is mandatory. --173.61.xxx.xx

I wouldn't put a curbless shower into a rental. Tenants will have water flooding all over the floor. Fiberglass shower pan might not look as stylish, but it is better for containing the shower water of people who don't care about water damage.

But if no tub limits kids, fine by me. --98.146.xxx.xxx

If you want to avoid tenants with kids/babies, put a shower in, most people with kids wonít want an apt with a shower....they needto bath the kids and thatís really hard to do in a shower.. LOL. I just rediid an apt and put in a shower, for two reasons, the second one was to free up space in a very very tiny bathroom --24.94.xx.xx

I have so many headaches w/ C tenants and tubs. They are sloppy shower people and the water is always running over the side, even with those plastic triangles you can caulk in place. Plus I think showers make more sense in smaller bathrooms. Have not done one yet but I envision putting a curbless shower with tile floor pitched toward shower drain and just hang a shower rod in place of the frameless glass door. Kind of like a shower in a state park. --24.194.xx.xx

Most houses and rental units have four piece bathroom where if the tenant does not want to take a bath then the shower can be used. Since there is complete demolition then installing a Schluter ditra membrane along with a good quality porcelain tile will last a long time. Usually new single handle pressure balanced bathtub faucets are installed where the ceramic disc type has the least amount of problems. Two most important areas of a house or rental unit are the bathroom and kitchen. More then likely he will be bringing his girlfriend or wife when viewing the rental unit so having a vacancy is not great. What was the norm forty years ago is not today. Here most renovated houses have a quartz kitchen counter top. --147.194.xxx.xx

I like taking baths and don't really like taking showers, and I'd guess a lot of other women feel the same way. At least one of my two daughters also likes baths. Removing the ability to take a bath will narrow your audience. --73.231.xxx.xxx
