Bath tub

I came across an article from the Globe and Mail earlier this month regarding bathroom renos. To remove a bath tub or not to remove a bathtub...that is the question.

I thought this was worth sharing especially after having this discussion with a client that wanted to take out their only bath and put a double wide shower in its place. I had to remind them that they needed to think of re-sale value. Even if you don't like a bath, the Buyers might. More often than not, you can get away with having a bathtub in one and then a shower in the other bathroom. But if you only have one full bathroom, I will highly recommend it being a shower/bath set up to satisfy both types of purchasers.
