A more modern and functional bathroom adds to the quality of life at home, and potentially adds to a home’s resale value. Of course, there are limits to consider — from budgetary to footprint restriction. However, the oversized soaking tubs take up a lot of room and although they look glamorous, large tubs require more water than most standard water heaters can supply to completely fill with hot water.
If a good soaking bath is not a high priority for you, consider converting a tub into a larger, more-luxurious shower. The shower possibilities are almost unlimited, including body sprays, handhelds, rain heads and more.
Keep in mind that some of the innovative options could increase the cost of the project.
From spalike luxury to utilitarian simplicity, there are many options to create your own version of a bathroom update.
