New Home Trends: Showers Vs. Bathtubs

It's a sad day when we have all become to busy to enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub. But according to a new report from Houzz, forty percent of homeowners doing bathroom renovations are leaving out bathtubs entirely in their new bathroom designs. One contractor interviewed claims that this is because people want to "get in and get out...the home is a place where you sleep and then leave for work!"

Signs Of An Aging Population

So much for the idea of the home as a sanctuary. Of course, some of what the report says does make sense. Part of this is a preference for walk-in showers, motivated by an aging population who find the step up 20 inches to get into the bathtub to be a bit difficult. It used to be that removing the bathtub resulted in a lower property value, but apparently this isn't the case anymore. Still, nothing says luxury like a gorgeous spa style bathroom with a luxuriant soaker tub. At least that's my view!
