"i really like a house to have a bath but wouldn't pay a lot more for it, would just think twice about purchasing one without a bath"

baths are incredibly useful for washing certain things other than a body such as duvets / blankets, wetsuits, large plastic bins, etc.

I'd like an option between "I couldn't care less" and "I'd pay more" please. Something like "I'd look slightly more favourably on a house with a bath."

I'm a showerer but NEED a bath for salt-soaks after injuries and crashes etc. I couls possibly live without one in my house if I was in walking distance of a public pool with a spa or Japanese bath facility etc.

My current house doesn't have a bath, so I guess I'm a shower-er. If my house did have a bath that would be cool, but I'd probably still shower more - it's quicker, and in my mind at least I'd use less hot water. That said, there are usually a few days a year that I'd kill for a long hot soak.

Showerer but it helps to have a bath for cat-bathing (we have the world's least hygenic cat).

I am really anal about showering. If I take a bath I have to fully shower first and scrub the tub with bleach before and after bath time. But the fact that I hate hate hate hate being wet, I typically avoid showering/bathing at all costs. Those rules apply for my kid, too.

I thought about these questions for a good long while and I still don't think I'm satisfied with the answers I chose.
The last house we rented had a miniature stall shower. I thought I wouldn't mind it - we bought a small basin to wash the baby in - but it really began to drag on me after a few months. Not being able to wash my hair without bumping my elbows, always stepping on the sharp edges of the drain, not being able to keep showering supplies in the stall. We ended up using the outside hose for a lot of things we previously would have been able to do in the tub.
I even got a membership to a more expensive gym because I liked their showers rather than just going to the cheap gym, just so I could shower there.

I really don't know if I can do it again. As much as the baby loved taking baths in the summer out on our back porch... it was hard to adjust to.

Kids gotta have a tub, even if I don't.

Definitely agree with this one.

I did spend 2 years in Scotland in a house with a bath and no shower, which forced me to make do with one of those rubber hose on the taps appliances - it was Not.Fun for a shower every day man, I can tell you. For added joy, include having to wash the cat shit down the plughole before starting my shower (at least that was preferrable to having to wash it off the floor/carpet...).

A bath was required, for house or apartment. What's more, I knew I couldn't afford any substantial bathroom renovation, so an appealing bath I could live with was required. My house's cast iron tub is curiously narrow and deep - fantastic for soaking.

I enjoy taking baths. However, I live on a ship, and I only have the option of taking five minute showers, for water conservation. When I have the chance to get into the ocean, I take as long as I can to let the salt soak into my skin, and afterwards, I don't wash it off... One of my favorite feelings in the world is that of the salt crystals breaking off my skin into my sheets.
I suppose that makes me a bather, though I rarely use a bath-tub. One of my "lottery dreams" comes from the mansions in Newport RI (usa) where the bathtubs have four taps. two for hot and cold running fresh water, and two for hot and cold running salt water.
I want a tub with running salt water.
I'd probably smell a lot better if I had one.

So if I had a bath, I'd use one. Wierdly, they are more common in Auckland than Wellington.

Also, if a house had space for a bath (and floor loading, I guess), they cost <$1000, unless you want looxury. Worst case, you could install one outside as some of my friends have done (also, put a camp burner underneath to heat it and you have a low cost spa bath).

I want to tear out our master bath and put in a larger shower with more jets. I've never taken a bath here. We built this house 11 years ago, if I had known we would have been here this long, I would not have put in a tub.

I'm just not a bath-er. We recently stayed at a nice place in Nelson with an excellent looking spa bath but I wasn't even vaguely tempted - I'm all about the good showers.

When we were looking for our house we weren't at all moved in a positive way by a bath - as it happens the house we bought has one, but we have been vaguely entertaining ideas of getting rid of it for a really good shower set-up. In the end though we might bow to the court of friends-and-family opinion, which is that baths add value and that young families like them - and whenever we decide to sell (not for many years hopefully) this house is likely to appeal to young families so and therefore..

not that whelmed by regular bathtubs, but spa baths? I paid extra for one in the past and would again, but would prefer a thermal bath by yards. Mmmmm thermal baths :)))
