We will eventually remodel our hall bathroom in our house. We do not plan to sell for many years but we figure by the time this remodel is complete (probably five years from now) it will still be in decent shape when we sell in (10-15 years). We plan to do a high end remodel including custom cabinets and granite so we want to make sure we do it right. So here is the question... It is a smaller bath. With a standard 5' tub we will have a small double sink vanity (48"). If we put in a shower instead (tile with seamless glass enclosure) we can put in a larger 60" double vanity. We love the idea of this b/c the deluxe shower will look more elegant and used as much. Plus the two kids using the bathroom will have more sink space. As a family looking to buy our house would the lack of tub in the hall bath deter you from buying the house? We have a large tub in our masterbath and another shower in DDs bathroom. The house is a large 5 BR 3.5Bath so definitely a family house.
