Is a Tub to Shower Conversion Right for Your Bathroom Remodel?
Did you know that the average person spends about 190 days of their life bathing? That’s equivalent to more than 6 months! You don’t want to spend all that time in a space you don’t truly love. If your bathtub is no longer serving you, consider a tub to shower conversion to upgrade your space and make bathing a luxurious experience every day.
Continue reading to find out if it makes sense to convert your old bathtub into a beautiful new shower.
You Have Another Bathtub in Your Home
For resell purposes, and as a matter of practicality, you’ll want to have at least one bathtub in your home. While you might not use your tub every day, it’s nice to have one on hand if you have young children, you want to bathe your pets, or you’re hosting guests. If you only have one bathtub in your home, converting it to a shower may not be the best option.
You Want Your Bathroom to Look and Feel Bigger
Since a bathtub takes up more room than a shower, converting your tub can make your bathroom look and feel larger. By installing a shower, you’ll get more square footage back in your bathroom that you can use for storage space or other functionalities that fit your family’s needs.
You Want Your Bathroom to Look More Modern
Does your current bathroom’s design feel outdated? You can make your whole bathroom look more modern by replacing your old tub with a sleek new shower. Our showers come in a variety of different styles and colors so you can create a space that looks straight out of a design magazine.
You Want to Boost Your Home Value
Whether you’re planning to sell your home in the next few years or not, increasing your home value is never a bad thing. Open, modern, and luxurious bathroom spaces appeal to buyers, so remodeling your bathroom is one of the highest-value projects you can do in your home.
You Want to Lower Your Water Bill
Now, we can’t promise that you’ll save hundreds of dollars on your water bill by replacing your tub with a shower. But, bathtubs require much more water than showers. So, if you replace your long soaks with showers instead, you just might notice your bill go down.
You Want Your Space to Be More Accessible
Perhaps most importantly, replacing your bathtub with a shower can make it easier for you or your loved ones to bathe. As we get older and our mobility levels change, stepping in and out of a tub becomes more of a tripping hazard. Our showers have a low threshold so you don’t have to worry about tripping. They also come with available safety features like grab bars and built-in seating, which is perfect if you’re planning to age in place.
