Tub to Shower Conversion Bathroom Remodel
Are you thinking about remodeling your bathroom? A recent study reveals that, given the choice, Americans prefer showers over bathtubs. That trend seems to reflect busier lifestyles that allow for less “get ready” time. However, most realtors will tell you that for resale it is a good idea to have at least one bathtub in the home so keep that in mind when deciding to convert your bathtub to a walk-in shower.
Spacious and Customizable
Bathtubs can be bulky and take up a lot of space. By removing your bathtub and installing a walk-in shower you will actually have more foot room and the whole space will feel larger. This is because the shower is completely open with no tub frame to separate it from the rest of the bathroom. This new open shower design gives the perfect opportunity for a custom feature wall as well. With endless tile styles and colors, you can have the bathroom you have always dreamed of.
Did you know bathtubs can be dangerous to your health? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year about 235,000 people over age 15 visit emergency rooms because of injuries suffered in the bathroom and more than a third of the injuries happen while bathing or showering. Conventional tubs require effort and leg-lifting to get in and out making it the most hazardous bathroom activity for all ages. A shower stall, by comparison, requires only a tiny step for greater ease of access. Installing a new shower with non-slip tiles can help eliminate the risk of falling and the added space also creates ample opportunities to add custom shower benches and grab bars for extra security.
Walk-in showers have many benefits including saving money on your next water bill. Give us a call today at 844-ELITE-03 to talk about your bathroom remodel and the possibility of converting your bathtub to a walk-in shower.
