When it comes to fast, affordable bathroom updates, many homeowners are opting for a tub-to-shower conversion. This project, which can typically be completed in a single day, allows you to convert an unused tub into a stylish shower. This is an ideal solution for homeowners who need a more accessible bathing option than a traditional tub provides.

If you’re thinking about a bath conversion, it’s important to consider the pros and cons of this type of change to your bathroom.

Pros

·  Makes the Space Feel Larger: Depending on the shower you choose, it could take up less floor space than your tub. This will free up a bit of square footage, which will make your space feel larger.

·  More Accessible Bathing Option: Older homeowners and those with limited mobility will find it much easier and safer to get in and out of a low-threshold shower than a tub.

·  Affordable: A tub-to-shower conversions costs much less than traditional bathroom remodeling.

·  Stylish: You’ll have your choice of dozens of style and color combinations, so it’s easy to find a shower that complements the other design elements in your space.

·  Durable: Made of tough acrylic, our showers won’t chip, crack, or stain, and are durable enough to last for a lifetime.

Cons

·  No Tub: The obvious downside is that you’ll no longer have a tub. If you’re hesitant to give up a tub for better accessibility, ask your bathroom remodeler about a walk-in tub.

·  Could Put Off Some Buyers: If you plan to sell, not having a tub could be a problem for some buyers, especially families with children.
