    Hello, looking for opinions regarding removing our bath. I've been told it can affect the price of your home if you want to sell. We never use the bath and I'd love to have one of those walk in shower cubicles fitted as the bathroom is really small. Is it a bad idea to get rid of the bath??

    Not at all. It's your house after all, so feel free to remove the bath and install that shower cubicle you're dreaming of.

    In fact, walk in shower cubicle is a great way, in terms of ease of access or sleek design that you want for your bathroom. I think it is the ultimate statement to give your bathroom that extra special something.

    If you are not looking to sell at any point soon then go with the walk-in shower cubicle. The style of your home and what prospective buyers are after can determine whether it is a good idea or not. If it is a family house then a bath is very convenient for families with young children. I would suggest taking a picture of how a bath fits into the place and if/when you come to sell and a bath is what a prospective buyer is after then you can show that it is possible and would not be a huge job.

    As the population grows older, walk-in or even "wheel-in" showers are preferred, both for ease of access and for safety. This might increase the value of your home.
