We are renovating our bathroom and my husband and I can't agree on whether or not to dispose of the bathtub.We've gone from 7 kids at home to 3 and no one uses the bathtub anymore,we all shower.My husband is concerned that taking out the tub will decrease the value of our home and discourage buyers if we ever sell .We have just the one bathroom.
I would recommend you keep the bathtub the reasons you are concerned are valid.
Furthermore, sometimes bathtubs will not fit out the doorway to the bathroom as they are often installed in the framing stage. Be sure to measure first.
Besides, if you take away the bathtub, where will you defrost the Thanksgiving Turkey?
good point ,but we are replacing the one exterior wall in the bathroom...
the tub could go out then ;)
I definitly recomend you "keep the bath" or update it with a newer one as you are already renovating. If this is the only bathroom in the house then it definitly should look good and updated before you sell your house.
A lot of potential buyers would not like the idea of not having a tub or having to go thru the trouble of putting one in.
As a home buyer I would never buy a house if it did not have a tub and I believe most women feel the same way...update the bathroom
a bathtub was vital to me when i was buying a home. my dad also like the bath - when he was home buying he'd lie in the tub and ended up buying a house with a tub that was comfortable for him. he takes baths and falls asleep in them.
definitely keep the bath as a prospective buying will then need to consider the cost and hassle of putting a tub in. it could be a deal-breaker.
I would suggest that you keep the bathtub. If you have intentions of selling your house anytime soon, it would be great to keep your bathroom extra attractive with that bathtub.
