    A bath with a shower over it to scrub up and get clean when you're in a hurry.

    But do get a bath at all costs!

    You can't beat luxuriating in a hot bath and sipping ice cold Coca Cola to refresh you when you're worn out and exhausted!

    Have the best of both worlds and get the shower over bath. A showers great for quickness but there really is nothing to beat relaxing in a lovely hot bath (with the obligatory Lush bath bomb chucked in of course!) on a winters night listening to the rain battering off the windows, a drink by your side and a good book, heaven

    Go for the shower over the bath. If you ever have a baby, it's much easier if you have a bath. But life's rubbish without a shower for a quick wash for yourself. Best to have both available.

    you can enjoy a bath in a crap bath but

    you can only enjoy a shower in a great shower

    So if you plan just a shower dont cut corners on the quality

    Get at least a single power shower or a multi spray set up

    If you have water meter probably a shower now will add value too

    Source(s): I still love my jaquzzi bath time so have both

    bath with a shower over it, if you are on a tight budget ge tthe shower that is attached to the bath taps. that way you can still have a shower but without the extra plumbing as it will work off the bath!

    not the horrible rubber ones that split and leak but like this one

    i'd say go for a bath with a shower over...best of both worlds! If you're going for an electric shower make sure you get one with more than 10KW of power. Our shower is as good as any powershower and it's electric. Personally I love having the choice.

    You cannot beat a good soak in the bath. My daughters testament to that, she only has a shower in her flat and she comes home once a week for a bath. Enough said ?
