Baths or Showers: which is better?

August 10, 2019

Would you rather have a soak in a bubbly bathtub or take a long, hot shower? There are arguments for both, depending on the day you’ve had, but which do we think is best?

The bath

After a stressful day, the thought of taking a long soak in a hot bath is the idea of heaven. Whether you are trying to unwind or relax, taking a bath gives us the feeling of peace and comfort, two things we all love.

Taking a warm bath is not only good for the soul, but our health as well. Not only does it relieve muscle aches, pains, tension and tightness, but it is said that a hot bath also reduces blood pressure and anxiety levels in our body.

Now we have seen the benefits of the bath, let’s take a look at the perks of the shower.

To get that “clean feeling”, nothing beats having a hot shower; it really does feel like it washes the germs away. Installing a high-pressure shower head for that serious clean and hair wash, or a rainfall shower head for those relaxing showers after a long day at the office – a shower gives the feeling of cleanliness and luxury all in one.

Another key factor of showering is it is a water saver. A standard showerhead uses around two gallons of water per minute – so for a 10-minute shower, that equates to about 20 gallons of water used.

A full bathtub requires about 70 gallons of water – so even if it was half filled, that’s still 15 gallons more than a 10-minute shower.

So, which is better? We say both. Having a bath and shower in the home bathroom is often a key feature of all modern day renovations, giving all the family their choice to decide what they feel like taking that night – a bath or a shower.
