Hi there, we are looking to remodel our 5 piece master bath. Currently we have a 6ft jetted tub with a separate 36 inch shower. We were thinking of putting in a pre-made steam shower/jetted tub combo but worry about resale value of home by doing this. We plan on living here another 5 years then selling once kids are all done with school. Another option would be to add a steam shower only with no jetted tub and leave the tub we currently have. Would this decrease the value of the house and or be less enticing to a new buyer if we do this? Link for what we are thinking of getting is here to see what we are talking about. Any advice would be great. Thank you http://www.steamshowers4less.c...-702a-73-detail.htmlThis message has been edited. Last edited by: steiny0831,
I clicked on the link then immediately grimaced because this product is SUCH a personalized choice that's likely to be seen as a negative by buyers when you go to sell. Because you plan to sell in about 5 years, I suggest you have a steam shower custom built with tile/glass and leave the tub you already have in place (or buy a new tub).
I would keep the current tub and do the steam shower.... unless you really want the jetted tub. Don't do it if you are just trying to increase resale, do it if you will enjoy it for the next 5or so years. Don't plan on dollar for dollar return
