When remodeling your bathroom, you will want to consider what features that space should have. A lot of options surround the area of your shower, and whether you need a separate shower and bathtub, or one that has both. Knowing the pros and cons of your bathroom remodel ideas can help influence your design decisions.

The first thing you really need to consider is preference. Not much else matters if you know exactly what it is you want. Some homeowners truly enjoy having a dedicated space for a special or unique shower, with a large luxurious tub in a separate area of the bathroom. As long as you have the space for both, your dream can be a reality.

But for those trying to save space, the combination of a shower and bathtub can be both smart and economical. For instance, a family with small children will find using the bathtub easier to get the little ones clean. Or you like having the option to lie down and relax by yourself with a soak in the tub. 

The shower/tub combination might be all that your home has the room for, making it your only choice in the matter. Or, if you have a much more limited space, then a shower is the only possibility. Unfortunately, if you do not have the room to space, it is extremely difficult to install both a shower and a tub in the same room.

Even if you have the space for both, it may not be in your budget. Planning your bathroom remodel means looking at all the factors. You may have the space, but not the budget; or you may have the budget, just not the space. 

You want to weigh all the options available to you during your bathroom remodel, and even though not all showers need a bathtub, it still could be your best choice.
