Replacing a Bathtub with a Shower
By: Danny Lipford
I am considering taking the bathtub out of my upstairs bathroom and expanding the shower. The downstairs bathroom has a bathtub as well. If we decide to move, will this affect the value of our home? -Joy
Technically, a bath with a shower is considered a 3/4 bath while one with a tub is a full bath, so it might make a difference in how your home is described in the real estate listing. But since most people take showers these days, as long as you still have a tub in the house, I don’t see it as a disadvantage. In fact, many people would consider having a spacious shower a plus.
