It Can Boost Your Home Value
Do you plan to sell your home in the next few years? Converting an old, outdated bathtub to a new walk-in shower can boost your home’s value when you decide to list your house. Updated bathrooms are important to many prospective buyers, so they’ll see a chic new shower as a selling point.
Planning a tub-to-shower conversion before you sell could be just the thing to help you get a higher offer for your home.
It Gives You the Chance to Customize Your Bathing Area
When you begin your bathtub to shower conversion, it’s the perfect opportunity to customize your bathing area so that it better fits your wants and needs. For starters, you can pick from a variety of shower wall styles to create a design that fits your aesthetic.
You can also add custom features like built-in shelving so you have a convenient way to store your shower essentials. No matter what ideas you have for your new shower, our expert installers can bring them to life.
It Makes Cleaning Easier
Bathtubs can be difficult to clean, as soap scum, mold, and mildew can accumulate on the rounded interior surfaces. If you’re tired of spending your free time scrubbing your bathtub, then a tub-to-shower conversion could be just what you need.
Our high-quality acrylic showers are easy to clean, in part because they have silver ion protection, which helps prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. To make cleaning even easier, install a handheld shower head so you can quickly rinse down the walls of your shower as you clean.
It Can Make Your Bathroom Look Bigger
If you choose to replace your old bathtub with a walk-in shower that has clear glass doors, it can give the illusion of more space, as the eye will be drawn to the back of your shower. Walk-in showers also give you more space to move around compared to a cramped bathtub.
To make your space look even bigger, pick light colors for your new shower design, which can make the whole room feel more open.
It Can Help You Feel Safer
As you get older, you might notice that your mobility levels change. While you used to climb into your bathtub with no problem before, it can become more difficult to step over the high threshold as you age. Converting your tub into a shower is the perfect way to make you feel safer in your senior years.
We have shower options with low-threshold entries to help reduce the risk of tripping while you bathe. We can also add safety features to your new shower such as sturdy grab bars and slip-resistant flooring to help you maintain your independence as you get older. Another way to make your bathroom more accessible is to replace your tub with one of our built-in seated showers.
It Can Help You Use Less Water
Are you looking for ways to save money on your water bill? Converting your tub to a shower can help you do just that. While an average bath uses between 35 and 50 gallons of water, a 10-minute shower uses only 25 gallons.
These savings can really add up if you have a big family using the bathtub every day. By switching to a shower, you might notice a positive impact on your bill.
