Remodeling your bathroom is a great investment; according to Remodeling Magazine, remodeling a bathroom can return over 60 percent of your investment upon resale. For many people, however, thinking about remodeling the bathroom may also mean taking out a bathtub to create a walk-in shower, but is that a good idea or will having no bathtub affect your Plano home's resale value negatively?
Many people are also opting to put in larger walk-in showers because they are much easier to get into and out of compared to a bathtub. This is especially important for older populations.
Taking out a bathtub and creating a large walk-in shower does affect resale because it turns a full bath into a three-quarter bath. This can negatively impact resale value. Some buyers will want a large tub for soaking or for bathing children. According to the National Association of Homebuilders, over 50 percent of buyers still want bathtubs.
If you want to get rid of your bathtub for a walk-in shower, it is safe to take the plunge, but there is something you should consider before you dive into remodeling. According to the National Association of Realtors, it is safe to change your master shower from a bathtub/shower to just a shower only if you have another bathroom with a bathtub.

Did you resolve that 2018 was the year you were going to transform that spare bedroom finally or that change over that living room that no one can sit in to your “Man Cave”?While you are thinking about your dream space, you might want to consider these must-haves:
Seating: A comfy chair or sofa is one of the most important things to purchase for your Man Cave. Think leather, think reclining, think stadium seating, and think something you don’t have to worry about eating a plate of nachos on.
1. Think About Your Storage.
What does storage look like in your laundry room? Just have a shelf or two? Swap out build-grade shelving for nice cabinets that go to your ceiling to not only maximize your space, but to also store your things like detergent, dryer sheets and cleaning supplies out of sight.
2. Add a Counter.
If you have front-loading machines, adding in a countertop over them will give you dedicated space to fold your clothes. Add some nice baskets to catch your things and prevent clutter!
3. Build in a Drying Rack.
Add a collapsible drying rack to your space so you can easily dry things when necessary and store it when not in use.
4. If You Can, Add a Closet.
If you can stack your washer and dryer, you may be able to squeeze in a closet with shelves and storage hold towels, paper goods, your mop and bucket, or a vacuum.
5. Buy or Build Your Own Pedestals.
If you don't have them already, consider purchasing the pedestal drawers that match and go under your laundry machines. Another option is to build your own pedestal (or have us build them for you!) drawers or open shelving below your machines to hold laundry baskets.
6. Use All Your Space.
Think about adding shelving above your door to hold seasonal items and other things you store in your laundry room. Consider the space between your machines and see if it's wide enough to add a laundry cart, too.
