You may be wondering whether you would be better off with a bath or a shower enclosure. There are many times when the bath will be the better option. There are various reasons why this could sometimes be the case.
Baths Are Roomier
Where a shower enclosure can make you feel like you are trapped you have more freedom to move around in a bath. You can stretch out in a bath but not a shower enclosure, making it a more comfortable option. It is especially important to have a bath if you have a baby or toddler at home because it is virtually impossible to bathe them in a shower closure at that age. Elderly family members may also prefer a bath because they won’t have to stand up while they wash themselves. In general, a bath will have more room for your elderly loved one to put a seat in than a shower enclosure would.
You Want To Relax
There are times when you need to bathe yourself but you are too tired to stand in the shower. This is another case of when it is best to choose a bath instead of a shower enclosure. A bath allows for you to add bath salts or oils, as well as bubble bath. You cannot use these things in a shower enclosure, making it very inconvenient at times. A bath gives you more flexibility than a shower enclosure ever could.
You Want To Bathe With Your Partner
If you want to bathe with your romantic partner or you need to bathe with a young child, a bath is a better choice. Many shower enclosures are too small and narrow to comfortably fit two people into. If you believe in showering with a partner or a child in order to save water you would want a shower enclosure rather than a bath. However, most of the time a bath is the more popular choice.
A Bath Is Cheaper Than A Shower Enclosure
Depending on the specific shower enclosure chances are a bath is a cheaper alternative. If money is tight or you are very conservative with your money you may be better off purchasing a bath.
A huge part of the decision of whether or not you want a bath or a shower enclosure comes down to personal preferences. You may have a strong preference for one over the other, and there is nothing wrong with that. While in many cases a bath makes more sense it is up to you to ultimately determine what you want to have in your bathroom. If you are lucky you may even have room in your bathroom for both.
