Advice on bathroom remodeling
Q. We have two and half bathrooms. The two are upstairs where one is in the master and the other is a hall bathroom shared by the other three bedrooms. Both bathrooms currently have bathtubs with showers and curtains.
We are empty nesters in our late 60s and we are planning on remodeling both upstairs bathrooms. My wife and I are discussing changing one of the tubs/showers into a walk-in shower but we cannot decide which bathroom to put the walk in shower in. There is more room in the hall bath, but the Master bath seems to be a more logical place to put the shower.
We’re interested in your opinion which bathroom would be best to locate the walk-in shower. Thank you.
A. I vote for the master bathroom, as it is the one most favored by prospective buyers since most people take showers. Anyone who wants to soak can use the other bathroom.
You can get shower units that are 5-feet wide – same size as tubs – and they are great; you don’t feel crowded in them. Some have useable seats and others are plain.
Good luck with the remodeling.by
