Considering it is National Bathroom Safety Month, we thought it relevant to talk about one of the quickest ways to upgrade your bathroom’s safety. In just one day, Thompson Creek can transform your outdated, potentially dangerous bathroom into a modern ideal of bathroom safety. We are talking about our custom tub-to-shower conversion.
The tub-to-shower conversion is one of the most safety-conscious upgrades a homeowner like you can make. This type of shower conversion can significantly boost the safety of any bathroom.
Let’s take a look at why a conversion could help against preventable injuries.
What’s so Dangerous about a Tub?
Tubs are great when you have kids. Providing them with a safe and secure bathing and playing area is extremely important.
Then, as we age, many of us forgo soaking in baths and instead choose the efficiency of a shower. But, getting into or out of a tub or shower can start to become difficult as our balance and strength begin to decline.
Tub-to-Shower Conversions can Help!
A tub-to-shower conversion increases the level of safety in any bathroom. Stepping over your tub wall is probably the most dangerous natural maneuver you could do in a bathroom. It involves removing the actual bathtub and replacing it with a ground level shower base.
Eliminating the shower wall also eliminates the need to step over it into the tub. By installing a ground level shower, getting in and out becomes much easier and safer.
Doing away with an under-utilized, likely unsightly, and cumbersome tub can really change the interior of the bathroom. It is also a safer option for everyone. From the young to the elderly, many of whom have limited mobility among other physical limitations, updating the bathroom makes navigating the bathroom more difficult.
A bathtub can be very dangerous to traverse. Updating your bathroom’s “wet spaces”, (the shower, and tub areas effectively) with a tub-to-shower conversion will greatly increase the safety of your bathroom. It will lessen the chances of you or someone you love getting injured while entering or exiting the tub.
