The Pros & Cons of Tub-to-Shower Conversions
Before we get into the pros and cons, let’s take a closer look at tub-to-shower conversions, helping you wrap your head around what the remodel actually involves. Simply put, a tub-to-shower conversion is a bathroom remodeling service for homeowners who currently have a tub/shower combo but want a walk-in shower. The installation team will begin the process by removing the tub from your tub/shower unit’s footprint. Then, they’ll install a low-entry shower system in its place. So, what are the perks of this bathroom remodel?
If you’re a hardcore showerer, the biggest perk of investing in a tub-to-shower conversion is the fact that it removes the bathtub from your bathroom. You’ll no longer have to step over an inconvenient tub to enjoy your shower! This is particularly beneficial for anyone who is planning to age in place or who has a limited range of mobility, as it rids your bathroom of high tub walls, making it a lot easier to enter and exit the shower safely. Tub-to-shower conversions can also help make your bathroom feel more spacious than it is. By getting rid of the bathtub, you create a seamless transition to the bathroom floor, which can create the illusion of a larger space.
If you love to bathe, then tub-to-shower conversions are probably not the best bathroom remodeling choice. You should also consider keeping at least one bathtub in your home, especially if you are planning to sell in the future, as many homebuyers look for bathtubs when house hunting.
