Custom Home Bathroom Design: Why Ditch The Tub

Penny Siml - Thursday, January 11, 2018
Your custom home bathroom design should be about increasing comfort and functionality, not squezzing a tub into the space.

Quick question: how often do you use the bathtub you have right now? Unless you take a daily soak or you only have one bathroom and young children, you probably aren’t using it frequently. By ditching the tub altogether in you custom home bathroom design, you can increase the amount of room you have to work with to create the bathroom of your dreams.


Increase the size and luxury of your shower.

After you’ve ditched the tub, it’s time to start focusing in on the shower. With all of the extra space in your bathroom, you can afford a larger shower complete with every gadget and luxury feature imaginable. Mood lighting makes your shower more enjoyable. A rainfall faucet means you’ll never actually want to get out of the shower in the morning. Multiple shower heads mean you can enjoy relaxing water pressure from every angle. Love singing in the shower? Your custom home builder can install bluetooth speakers, so you can listen to your favorite songs.


Make the room easier to clean and maintain.

Still not convinced? Here’s another question: how much do you enjoy cleaning the tub? While you might enjoy the occasional soak in your bathtub, the cleaning process for a tub is probably one of your least favorite things. In fact, you might dislike that so much you avoid cleaning the bathroom as long as possible. With a bathtub in your bathroom, you have to clean extra tile, worry about stains on the tub, and do your best to keep hair out of the drain. Removing the tub altogether from your custom home bathroom design means you won’t have to hunch over the side and do your best not to fall in while you’re wiping the far side of it down. Instead, you can easily clean the tile inside of your large, luxury shower.
