    I would go full tile again. A properly done tile job will have no leaking issues. It wasn’t the tile that was the problem the first time around; it was the person doing the tile job.

    my shower is your first option with a built in bench.

    i had a jacuzzi tub ripped out and the shower put in when i bought my house.

    I like the idea of having a soaker tub, but not when it’s a shower/tub combo.  In this case, I’d probably vote for the full tile shower.

    @NotablySidedJP:  Once you put that nice tub in, I’m coming over to soak! 😉

    We have full tile in our current rental and we hate it. Unless you have amazing ventilation in your bathroom and you are diligent about cleaning, the mold and grime build up in the lower tiles very very very quickly. If we skip two weeks of cleaning, the mold starts to grow and we have a bathroom window (but no fan). I would go with the tub or the shower pan. Those are much easier to keep clean and free of mold.

    The full clear glass doors are nice but they also require work to keep spotless. Otherwise, the hard water builds up quickly and it’s very difficult to descale the hard water spots. It’s best to try it off after every use. This can be tiresome.

    @NotablySidedJP:  Jetted tubs are a nightmare to keep clean and functional. Stuff grows in the jet tubes when they aren’t in use – it can get pretty disgusting. They are more upkeep than they are worth!

    Definitely go full tile. Properly installed tile won’t leak.
