We are noticing that when people renovate their bathrooms they are removing the tub and installing a shower in their main bathroom. This can often inhibit a sale as families with small children rely on the main bath to bathe their children. To renovate from a shower stall back to a bathtub may be too costly for a family to consider your home. When removing a tub you are changing your main bathroom from a four piece bath to a three piece bath. Your ensuite may be the perfect place to have a shower.
People with disabilities and the elderly who have one bathroom in their home have no choice but to have their bathtub removed and have a low profile shower installed because of safety reasons. Safety comes first.
