Simply so, what is a stand up shower?

The terms walk-in shower and stand alone shower make sense in that the name describes the function. It seems that the term stand-up shower has become popular, but by definition all showers are stand-up.

Furthermore, which is better tub or shower? Showers take up less space. If you have a smaller-than-average full bathroom—say, 32 square feet—a shower is the clear winner. If you have an average-sized full bathroom measuring 40 square feet, a shower would take up less than a quarter of floor space while a tub would use up a third of the bathroom.

In respect to this, how much is a stand up shower?

Included in this cost are the installation expenses (about $1,000), which include plumbing modifications, fixtures and sinks. Full showers (or stand-alone showers) typically cost about $700 to $800 to install. This cost includes the expense for a shower stall as well as labor installation expenses.

Is it cheaper to have a shower or bath?
