Basement Bathroom

 We are finishing our bssement and building a large family room, bathroom and laundry room. We presently have a 3 bedroom home with 2 full baths and one half bath. My question is, does it make sense to install a shower in the basement bathroom or just to install a vanity and toilet? The basement windows are very small and do not allow for egress so no bedroom will ever be built down there. I cannot see that the shower will ever be used. Should we install it anyway for future selling considerations? I really would appreciate your help with this dilemna.

It seems like a waste to put in the shower down there if no one is going to use it. I'd just go with the 2 piece like Mrs. Peacock says.

|i would prefer not to install a shower at the basement because you already have 2 full baths. Just install a vanity and toilet there.

If the family room is going to include an exercise area, you may want to consider a shower in the basement bathroom.
