Your bathroom is one of the areas that experience high foot traffic throughout the year. It also bears the barrage of running water every day, making it more susceptible to wear and tear than the other areas of your home. For this reason, renovating your bathroom every 7-10 years refreshes and makes it comfortable.

Remodeling your bathroom comes with many advantages, such as doing away with outdated showerheads, bathtubs, flooring, and other features. If you want to remodel your bathroom soon, you have several alternatives. Weighing the pros and cons of a bathtub or shower installation is one of the areas you may need to address. 

Should You Install a Shower?

Most of the water consumption in a household occurs in the bathroom. If you are concerned about the amount of water used at your home each day, bathroom remodeling can help you keep this in check. 

A bath, of course, uses the same amount no matter how much time you are in there. However, you can help limit your water consumption by taking short showers. It takes about 30 gallons of water to fill your bathtub, while the average water usage in a shower is two gallons per minute. So, if you shower for less than 15 minutes, you’ll use less water than you would by drawing a bathtub. 

Our shower systems and wall surround options optimize your bathroom, conserve water, and provide ample bathing space for your convenience and enjoyment.

Kids also prefer a bath over a shower, especially if they are still young. Installing a bathtub can help make your house a home and your bathroom your sanctuary.
