You absolutely can convert your bathtub into a shower! Many homeowners are now choosing to skip the laborious, and potentially expensive, step of remodeling their entire bathroom by simply replacing their old bathtub with a new, modern shower. This remodel has become so popular that the service has officially been dubbed a tub-to-shower conversion.
Essentially, a tub-to-shower conversion is a service that caters to homeowners who no longer want or need a tub in their bathrooms, converting the original bathtub shower combo into a standalone shower system. Before you jump on this bandwagon and convert your tub, however, it’s important to do your research. To streamline this process for you, here’s a quick overview:
What to Consider Before Converting a Bathtub
Before deciding to convert your tub into a shower, it is important to consider costs. Reviewing this element of your project will help you stick to a budget as well as determine the overall design of your new shower system. For those planning to sell their homes, it’s also a good idea to consider current market trends and the wants of prospective homebuyers. For example, converting your only bathtub into a shower may not be ideal for a future homeowner who needs the convenience of a tub for their toddlers or pets. By giving these details your full attention, you can feel more confident in your investment and, in turn, happier with your overall bathroom remodel.
The Advantages of Tub-to-Shower Conversions
Homeowners are choosing to invest in tub-to-shower conversions for many reasons—and they’re all good ones. In addition to completely transforming the look and layout of your bathroom, the contemporary shower system you’re left with after installation is:
- Lower maintenance – Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel conversions use Jacuzzi® walk-in shower systems that feature easy-to-clean wall surrounds, layered with antimicrobial protection.
- Easy to access – You’ll have the option of choosing from low- or no-threshold Jacuzzi®
- Personalized for you – Available in a wide variety of colors, textures, and styles, your new Jacuzzi® shower is sure to complement your aesthetic preferences.
- More spacious – Tub-to-shower conversions help create the illusion of more space in your bathroom, as they remove the tub and open the floor space.
Who Can Benefit From a Bathtub Conversion?
While anyone can benefit from a tub-to-shower conversion, homeowners with mobility challenges and those with small bathrooms may find the upgrade even more rewarding. During the renovation process, most bathtubs are converted to walk-in showers. These systems are not only designed with a low threshold that’s easy to access, but they can also be customized with a wide variety of storage and safety accessories—using the space efficiently for your unique needs.
