Is Bathtub a Luxury or a Necessity?

Today we are going to talk about one of the very finest additions which you can make to your property and we are talking of course about the bathtub. Many questions whether or not the bathtub is a luxury item or a necessity, and the answer to that is very simple, it is a necessary luxury item which all properties should have, as long as there is enough space to do so. The only drawback that you can ever discuss when it comes to the theme of a bath, is that filling the tub and washing in this way versus taking a shower is less kind to the environment and uses far more water. With it being said, however, improvements in water efficiency are certainly closing that gap. 

There is so much to love about a bathtub and as long as you have space, here is why it is a must-have item. 


We have mentioned about the space which you may or may not have and one of the great benefits of a bathtub is that there are many different styles which can fit into space which you have in your bathroom, even if you are limited. You could look at corner baths, freestanding tubs, 3/4 sized baths, there is a huge range of options ahead of you.

There are few worries which a good long soak in a bathtub will not cure, and this area of your home can provide you with the ultimate sanctuary. If you have had a bad day at work, a physically challenging day or perhaps you are just looking to have some real relaxation, getting into the bathroom and drawing a bath before locking the door behind you is the ultimate way to keep the world out for a while. The rejuvenation which you will feel after a bath is worth the purchase on its own. 


Regardless of how the bathroom is decorated, a bathtub will raise the level of style and luxury to much higher levels. If you had two bathrooms identically designed only one has a freestanding bath and the other doesn’t have a tub, the room with the bath would look 10 times better than the bathroom without, such are the style points which a bath is able to bring. No matter what design or how big or small the tub is, there is something about it which really helps to bring home that sense of luxury. 


A bath is not just something which you as a homeowner can enjoy, in having a bathtub installed you can be sure that you will increase the value of your home and that you will make it infinitely more salable. Whilst anyone who is buying a home has the option to install a bath if there isn’t one, it is far easier to know that you are moving into a property which is already equipped with a tub for you to enjoy. 

In terms of the question as to whether the bathtub is a luxury or necessity, the issue is in fact with the question because a bathtub is both a luxury item and a necessity in your home.
