Is Tub to Shower Conversion Right for You?

At Carolina Home Remodeling, we know that a bathtub is not for everyone, and if you’ve been wanting to turn yours into a shower, our tub-to-shower conversions are the perfect option. We use thick, high-quality acrylic that not only looks beautiful but is incredibly easy to keep clean. All you have to do is wipe it down periodically with a damp towel or sponge and it will sparkle and shine. Our conversion is also a really great investment for those who experience mobility issues. With our low-threshold option, you can simply open the door and step in without having to climb over a large bathtub side.

Here are a few reasons to turn your tub into a shower:

You Never Use It

While many homeowners have a bathtub in their bathroom, the majority of them don’t actually use it. Things like filling up and draining a bathtub take time, as does the actual act of bathing, and with such busy schedules, many find taking a bath to be too time-consuming. In addition, bathing uses around 70 gallons of water, making it unappealing to homeowners who are energy-conscious and don’t want to waste water.

Instead of letting your bathtub sit there unused day after day, why not turn it into a shower using our tub-to-shower conversion? You’ll be able to take fast showers, use less water, and finally get rid of the fixture you never use. If safety is a concern, then consider a walk-in shower with safety accessories like a grab bar and shower seat.

It’s Old

If your bathtub is old and has mildew, rust stains, peeling paint, or is in otherwise bad shape, the last thing you probably want to do is take a bath in it. Plus, your bathroom is something that potential home buyers will examine and consider, so you don’t want to have an old, outdated bathtub sitting in there collecting dust.

With our tub-to-shower conversions, you can get rid of your dated bathtub and replace it with a sleek, stylish new shower instead, which can completely update your bathroom.

It’s Damaged

Over time, bathtubs undergo a lot of wear and tear that can result in cracks, holes, chips, stains, and other types of damage. Once a bathtub is damaged, constant use after that will only make it worse. In addition, your floor or the walls around your bathtub may also experience wear and tear, creating an even more unappealing sight.

Don’t let your damaged bathtub get any worse – turn it into a shower instead! Our high-quality acrylic material not only looks great, but it’s made to resist chips, cracks, peeling, and other damage.

You Need More Space

Let’s face it – bathtubs take up a lot of room. In fact, the average bathtub is about 60 inches long and 30 inches wide, which is pretty large. And, if your bathroom is on the small side, your tub probably takes up most of the room. If you’ve been wanting to free up some space and open up your bathroom, a tub-to-shower conversion is the perfect way to do it.
