4 Benefits of Tub to Shower Conversions

You hate it every time you see it. It serves no purpose other than to collect mold and dirt. You feel it mocking you when you are washing and scrubbing, and you swear that this is the last time you will do it!

You know what we are talking about—your bathtub!

If that resonates, it is probably time to update your bathroom, and one of the most modern and cost-effective ways to do so is with a tub to shower conversion!

What is a Tub to Shower Remodel?

We are glad you asked! At its most basic, it is simply removing the bathtub from your bathroom and installing a new, shower-only bathing option. But it is so much more than that! The traditional bathtub/shower combination can feel a bit outdated. Modern aesthetics for bathrooms have increasingly opted for not including a bathtub, especially in smaller bathrooms where square footage is at a premium. Additional benefits of getting rid of your bathtub are:

  1. Fresh look and feel
  2. Ease of access
  3. Easier to clean
  4. Safety

Fresh Look and Feel

Think of how wonderful it would be to walk into your bathroom after it had just received a fresh coat of paint—maybe try a fun, new color this time?—and a brand-new shower. Given that it’s the room you typically see first and last every day, it does deserve the investment to turn it into a special place. There is no need for a complete bathroom renovation to get that clean, modern feeling when you can get the same thing for significantly less in terms of cost and time.

Ease of Access

Maybe there is someone in your household who struggles to get up and over the lip of the bathtub? Make it easier for them to get in and out with a shower-only option. Designs can include many safety features like no-slip textured flooring and handrails.

Easier to Clean

A shower is just easier to clean. Our shower systems feature a non-porous surface embedded with silver ions, giving the shower surface antimicrobial properties. Since there isn’t grout like a typical tile installation, it makes cleaning a breeze.

Safety

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than a quarter-million people suffer injuries in the bathroom every year, with a disproportionate percentage of those being fifty-five and older. By replacing a bathtub with a shower, you’re exchanging the 15-20-inch height of the tub with a much more manageable shower threshold of about 4 inches. We also install grab bars with every tub-to-shower conversion. You can ensure that you and your loved ones are safer by providing an easier way to get clean.
