Read on to find out everything you need to know prior to scheduling your free design consultation for your bathtub-to-shower conversion project!
What Is Bathtub-to-Shower Conversion?
Bathtub-to-shower conversion is exactly what it sounds like: a professional home improvement crew transforming your bathtub into a shower. Many people choose to have this done when they are aging in place in their homes. By converting the bathtub into a shower, you effectively remove any difficult-to-manage barriers and create an easier, safer bathing experience.
The Tub-to-Shower Conversion Process
Before scheduling your free design consultation, it’s a good idea to understand what’s involved during the tub-to-shower conversion process. First, your design professional will come to your home to assess your current bathroom layout. From there, the team will remove the existing tub and move any plumbing fixtures that need to be adjusted. This can involve anything from replacing valves to moving drains.
After the plumbing has been moved, the fun part begins: Your home improvement specialists will install a shower pan complete with a waterproofing system and shower door, all depending on your design specifications. And there you have it – your bathtub has been successfully transformed into a shower.
Why Convert Your Bathtub to a Shower?
Many homeowners choose to convert their tubs into showers as they get older and want to improve accessibility. However, there are many additional benefits to scheduling a tub-to-shower conversion, including:
- Accessibility: Easily step in and out of the shower without the obstacle of bathtub walls.
- Easy Maintenance: Showers make maintenance easier by eliminating the nooks and crannies that make tub cleaning such a chore.
- Sleek Appearance: Achieve a more organized, clean feel by removing the clunky bathtub and eliminating clutter.
- Maximized Space: By eliminating the tub, your bathroom layout will immediately appear more spacious.
