Can a Walk-In Shower Increase Home Value?

Jan 12, 2022

A walk-in shower and a soaker tub in a remodeled bathroomHave you grown tired of your bathtub/shower combination with its cheap-looking shower curtain? Have you found yourself pining over the sleek walk-in showers you’re seeing on home improvement television shows? It’s not uncommon for homeowners to want to say goodbye to their bathtub and replace it with a walk-in shower, but is it always a good idea? If you’re wondering whether a walk-in shower will increase your home’s resale value, the answer really depends on who is interested in buying your home. Here are some important factors to consider:


In terms of visual appeal, it’s hard to beat the look of a walk-in shower. With sleek lines, stylish wall surrounds, and a glass enclosure, a shower can provide the style upgrade you’ve been dreaming of. And if you decide to sell your home, older couples without children will likely view a walk-in shower as a valuable addition. That’s because they won’t have to worry about stepping over a high bathtub threshold, which can be difficult for individuals with mobility issues. Additionally, many bathtubs have a slick surface that can make falls more common.


If you are trying to sell a home that only has a single bathroom with a walk-in shower, you may be eliminating an entire demographic of potential buyers. Families with young children always want at least one bathtub, as it offers a safe space for a parent to sit while bathing a child. If the home only comes with a walk-in shower, it will likely reduce the value of the home in the eyes of young couples.
