Why is a bathtub a necessity in your bathroom? Is it something you need or can you get along just fine without it? Whether you take more baths than showers or vice versa, it’s important to have both in the bathroom. A bathtub has many benefits and while it may be something you forget about if you don’t use it, you’ll suddenly miss it when it’s gone.

With that being said, there are benefits to a bathtub that should definitely be shared. Here are some of the benefits that you’ll get with a bathtub in your bathroom.


Bathtubs are a wonderful feature of the bathroom and can provide a relaxed vibe to the aesthetic most bathrooms aim to go for. Whether they’re tucked away in the corner of the room or you’re lucky enough to have a stand-alone bathtub in the middle of the room, there’s nothing better than the appearance of a bathtub. Even if you’re not one who uses it a lot, it also presents a worthwhile opportunity for decoration – especially if you get a bathtub shelf.


Taking a bath is a great form of relaxation and it’s useful for when you need to unwind. Not everyone takes the time to give themselves some much-needed self-care and when it comes to taking a bath, a few bubbles and your favourite beverage will likely go down a real treat.

With that being said, take the opportunity to invest in a bathtub for your own well-being. It’s a great way to give back to yourself and to help with your mental health too.


If you’re someone who works out a lot or deals with bodily pain in general, then a bathtub is often a lot more comforting than standing up in a shower. Because when standing in the shower, all you might want to do when you’ve injured yourself is to lie down. With the bathtub, you’ve got the opportunity to submerge your whole body and staying in that one place while your muscles relax.


It’s important that when you have young children, you can bathe them with ease. Having a bath ensures you can get them to wash themselves without having to get soaked yourself. Not only that but a bath can often calm down those who are struggling to calm down after an energetic and sugar-fuelled day.


Whether you consider yourself a bath or shower person – an argument that at times can be very divided – it’s always useful to have a bathtub in the bathroom. Why? Well, it may add value and that all-important sway for those buyers of yours who require a bathtub in the bathroom to seal the deal.

If you’re looking to add a bathtub to your bathroom this year, then it’s definitely a worthwhile purchase that needs making.
