If you are investing the time and money into renovating your bathroom, then you might be considering replacing your old tub. If your bathroom is a small one then it might make the most sense to replace your tub with a shower. Before deciding, however, you should weigh the pros and cons of each. Once you make a decision and your small bathroom renovation is complete, it can be very costly to change your mind.
If you want to add a little space to your small bathroom during the renovation process, then consider replacing your tub for a shower.

The extra space can be used to install shelves or extend the vanity. Adding new shelves or a larger vanity can give you more storage. Having a place to hide clutter will do much for increasing the space in a small bathroom.
There are cases, however, when a bathtub will make a lot of sense. Parents with small children often prefer having a tub over a shower. It is easier to bath a small child when standing over or sitting on the side of a tub. It would also make sense to have a tub if you simply enjoy taking baths.
