Is a tub in master bathroom Important?
We're planning the master bathroom for our new house. We're going to install a large (48 inch) shower - both my dh and I take showers, but never baths. The large shower will be our "luxury" item there and useful as we approach senior years - more accessible. At this point we're planning on putting a bench where the tub would have been - a place to sit and dry your feet (or whatever) instead of having to perch on the toilet.
There will be a tub/shower combination in the second bathroom in case we or our guests ever wants a bath (we don't have children).
But is a tub in the master bathroom important for resale value? I've heard that many people don't actually use their MB tubs - so why have them? Our real estate agent - who is married to our builder - says MB tubs are important for resale, but she also says to follow our instincts. My instinct is confused!
