    Most Common Bathroom Remodel

    One of the most common remodeling jobs in a bathroom is to convert the bathtub to a shower. This can be done by replacing the tub with a shower stall, or by adding a showerhead and door to the bathtub. Shower stalls are popular because they are easy to maintain and can be customized to fit any size bathroom. Additionally, a shower can save space and reduce water consumption. This is a great option for those looking to add more functionality to their bathroom without taking up too much space. There are many reasons it is - your children are grown and there's no need to bathe a child in a bathtub, or your bathtub is outdated and a walk-in shower would upgrade your bathroom, or like many bathrooms the bathtub just isn't used. Because of the busy lives we all now have and don't have the time for relaxing in a long soak bath. A walk-in shower with a multi-functional shower system with a rainfall shower head, hand shower, and body sprays, can provide a luxurious and relaxing shower experience while saving time and fitting into our busy schedules.

    Be sure to review the pros and cons of removing the bathtub in favor of a shower.

     

    The pros to a bathtub to shower remodel:

    • Improved access - a walk-in shower provides easier access in and out with more room inside to maneuver around while showering. This is one of the reasons showers are safer than bathtubs
    • Takes up less room - this will give you more space in your bathroom as a whole. It also allows showers to fit better in small bathrooms
    • Improve the safety of your home - one of the most common accidents in the bathroom is slipping and falling. It is more common to slip while exiting a bathtub.
    • Perception of More Space - add a clear shower door to your shower. Even if your renovated shower actually takes up more space than your old bathtub, designed appropriately, the bathroom will look and feel more spacious.
    • Investing in a tub-to-shower remodel can increase the value of your home.
    • Water Bill - because you no longer have to fill up a bathtub, a shower saves money every year. Many of us do not think of this money saving benefit of a tub to shower remodel. 

    With Pros there are Cons:

    • No Soaking - if you do not have another bathtub in the house, you will not have a place to relax and soak at the end of your day. If you enjoy taking a long soak and your bathtub does not have a shower head, you might want to consider adding a shower head over the tub. This will give you both options.
    • Children - children are a joy and blessing and LOVE bathtime. It's also easier to wash small children in the bathtub.
    • When selling, if there are no other bathtubs in the house, it could make it harder to sell to a family with children. Might need to consider a shower to bathtub remodel. So think carefully when planning your remodel
