When making repairs to a standard bathroom, the best solution to free up precious square footage seems to be installing a shower cubicle instead of a bathtub. But there are several factors in which it is better to abandon this idea and leave the bath.
The presence of a small child.
If you have a small child, the presence of a bath is simply necessary, because, in the next few years, evening bathing will become a daily ritual. Agree, to do this in the shower is very uncomfortable, especially if we are talking about an infant. And many children can be afraid of the flow of water pouring on them from above. So in this case, the bath is a necessity, not the result of your wishes.
Non-standard layout of the bathroom
The size and layout of the bathroom is the deciding factor for choosing a shower cabin. Even combining a bath with a toilet, there is not so much space left. But if you want, you can «play» with the layout of the bath and it does not have to be strictly rectangular or square room. Manufacturers of sanitary ware give the opportunity to choose a bath of any size and even shape, while to find a shower different from the standard representations is quite problematic.
Need for constant cleaning
Like any plumbing, the shower needs cleaning and care. And in addition to the pallet, attention is required and glass doors. With what to remove them is quite problematic-the constant proximity to water leads to the formation of plaque and fungus, which is very difficult to get rid of. And the more family members, the more often you need to clean. While the curtain in the bathroom can be easily washed in a washing machine or just wipe with a sponge soaked in soap solution. So if you don’t want to waste your precious time washing out the cabin, buy a good old bath.
It is a mistake to believe that the shower will cost you less than the bathroom. The most common shower will cost more than a bathroom, and models from well-known brands with additional features can cost as much as all repairs in the bathroom. Therefore, in a limited budget, stop your choice to buy a bathroom.
