When designing a bathroom, one of the most significant decisions homeowners have to make is whether to include a bathtub or a shower (or both).

A tub shower combo can be the ultimate solution for your bathroom, offering both a bathtub and shower in one unit.

Tub-and-shower combinations are aesthetically pleasing and roomy, making them the most prevalent of all bathtub installations—an estimated 65 percent of households have one installed.

At Perry Brothers Construction, we understand that bathroom space can be limited, and you want to make the most of every inch. That’s why we’re big fans of tub-shower combos. Not only do they save space, but they also offer versatility, cost savings, and ease of cleaning.

The Ultimate Bathroom Space Saver 

One of the most apparent benefits of a tub-shower combo is the space-saving factor. Instead of having a separate bathtub and shower taking up precious square footage, a tub-shower combo combines the two in one unit. This can be especially helpful in small bathrooms, where every inch counts. In addition, it can give your bathroom a more spacious feeling, which is always a plus.

But space-saving is not the only advantage of this combo. Whether you want to relax in a bath after a long day or a power shower in the morning, a tub shower combo has you covered. It eliminates the need for separate units, allowing you to choose what best suits your needs and preferences.

Works For All Family Members

A tub-shower combo can also be an excellent choice for families who have members with different bathing needs. It’s a versatile option that can accommodate both kids and adults, making it perfect for households of all sizes. If you have an elderly parent visiting or living with you,  a tub-shower combo may be the ideal solution. It provides them with the safety and comfort of a bathtub and the convenience of a shower.

Saves Money In The Long Run 

Lastly, tub-shower combos are more cost-effective in the long run. Installing two separate units takes up more space and requires more plumbing work. With a tub-shower combo, you only need one installation, making it more economical.

It May Increase Your Resale Value

A tub-shower combo could be an excellent investment for your home. It may even help you get a higher resale value when the time comes to sell your property. This is because it appeals to a wide range of buyers and provides them with the versatility they need in their bathrooms. Many potential homebuyers look for a tub-shower combo. It’s often a selling point for them.

Tub Shower Combos Are Easy to Maintain

Tub-shower combos are straightforward to clean and maintain. The unit’s design allows for quick and simple cleaning, making it an ideal choice for busy families who don’t have much time on their hands. You can also use a mild, non-abrasive cleaner to keep your unit looking new and prevent dirt and grime buildup. 


A tub shower combo isn’t just functional; it can also be a stylish addition to your bathroom. With a wide variety of designs and materials available, it’s easy to find a tub shower combo that fits your bathroom’s unique style and needs. And with customization options, a tub shower combo can be made even more accessible to accommodate aging or mobility needs.
