Is a Tub-to-Shower Conversion Right For Your Home?

Discover the advantages of a tub-to-shower conversion.

When designing your bathroom, replacing an outdated tub is likely on your renovation to-do list. While you could replace your tub with a brand-new unit, another choice is to take advantage of this moment and convert your tub into a luxurious shower that maximizes your space and offers more convenience. A tub-to-shower conversion can optimize your bathroom with a safe, more accessible walk-in shower. This upgrade can be beneficial for those with limited mobility, as well as older adults. Before undertaking a tub-to-shower conversion, consider whether this is the right decision for your household. About Kitchens & Baths can help you navigate this decision when you consider the following factors. 

Who Will Use the Bathroom? 

Before planning your shower conversion, consider who will be using this bathroom the most. For families with small children, consider keeping the tub if it is the only one in the home, as bathing kids in a tub is much easier. 

However, converting it into a shower can be a wise choice if you have limited space and no need for a tub. If family members can benefit from an ADA-friendly shower space, converting a high-walled tub into a more accessible shower may be best. 

Are There Other Tubs in the House? 

Do you have other tubs in your home? Having at least one can be pretty helpful. If you have multiple tubs, you can more easily convert one into a shower to upgrade your bathroom without sacrificing the use of your only tub. 

Are There Any Challenges to the Tub-to-Shower Conversion? 

When evaluating your current tub, check to see if any appliances or obstructions are surrounding the tub that may make the conversion more difficult. This may include windows, cabinets, partition walls, and other built-in features. Inconvenient obstacles can add substantial cost to the project you may not be ready for. Consult with your remodeler at About Kitchens & Baths to determine whether your renovation faces these challenges. 

Do You Plan on Selling Soon? 

If you are renovating your home intending to increase your sale price, it is essential to consider what buyers may expect. For instance, they may like the look of a brand-new shower. However, if you removed the only tub for that shower, they may be less enthused. 

Does It Fit Your Budget? 

Finally, consider your budget. Depending on your goals, home layout, and other considerations, a tub-to-shower conversion can be quite affordable. Ask your remodeling company for a quote that considers all factors that will go into your bathroom remodel.
