Replace Jacuzzi with shower?


Hello. I'm renovating the bathroom off of my master bedroom (second floor). It currently has a Jacuzzi tub with a step up and a small 3 1/2ft X 3 1/2 ft shower. I'm thinking about taking the Jacuzzi out and replacing it with an all tiled shower to include a seat, etc. - and removing the existing smaller shower. The Jacuzzi space will allow for a shower that's a bit more than twice as big as the one we have now. We don't currently use the Jacuzzi tub for anything more than throwing clothes into, etc. There's another bath tub in the other bathroom on our second floor. My question is: does anyone out there think it would be a mistake as far as home value, resellability, etc. to remove the Jacuzzi and replace it with a large, decked out shower? Thanks very much in advance for a reply.

We have done many of these. The trends use to be all about a gorgeous bathing experience in master bathrooms, for the last 10 years that trend has been changing, it's now more and more about a showering experience. With people being busier and busier people spend no time in a tub, but are in the shower every day. More details can be found here

Is It Okay To Not Have A Bathtub In The Master Bathroom?

Multi-head, large showers are where it's going more and more. If you are going to resell in the next 10 years I can't see it do anything but make your house more desireable. Seeing ahead more then 10 years is pretty tough to guess if the trend keeps going or changes direction.

Having a jacuzzi at home helps you feel rejuvenated, refreshed, and relaxed however that really depends on you, what suits you.

Good Luck!
