    I’m not a bath person, so I would spend the money somewhere else.

    $3500?!  That’s outrageous!  Is there anyway you can have them set everything up for the tub you want, but not actually install it?  We bought our jetted tub at Home Depot during a sale for about $800, and it only took my husband a couple hours to install by himself.  It’s definitely worth it, but I don’t know if it’s worth $3500, when you can get one so much cheaper through another venue.

    I would kill for a jet tub.

    I have 2 jet tubs and I don’t use them very much. But When I do have a bath I LOVE having them. It is so relaxing and just plain wonderful. I don’t know if it is worth the $3500 tho…

    They are also a great selling feature, if you ever plan to move again.

    Jet tub is on our must have list when we buy a new home. It was the best part of our honeymoon and what made hubby decide we really should start planning to sell his house and buy OUR house.

    I’m a very practical person but I LOVE baths so I’d go for it if it was up to me. Personally, I’d rather spend the money on something that I’d use like a jet tub than a countertop.

    I love baths, but because I’m tall, I usually never take one because I hate the fact that I can’t fit in the water all at the same timein a standard tub. A jet tub would definitely be a must for me!!

    @cherrycoke:   That might be a part of the price.  Ours isn’t a corner, jetted tub, so it was definitely cheaper than what you’ll be getting.  $3500 is still a little steep, but it would be worth it for me; I use mine every single night.  🙂

    @SuperKate:  I’d rather spend the money on something that I’d use like a jet tub than a countertop.  Exactly this!  Granite countertops aren’t relaxing and enjoyable like a nice bath.  🙂

    I voted “jet tub”.

    I also want to note that you should get a bubble style tub, not a whirlpool. The bubble style just has air go through it, the whirlpool has your both water circulating through it. Whirlpool style is harder to clean and the tubes get nasty.

    I don’t have jets, but have a large deep soaker tub, and love it.  Might be a compromise where you still get an upgrade, but shouldn’t cost anywhere near as much, so you’d still have money left over for other things.
