Tub to Shower Conversions
Tired of the tub? Then it’s time to consider converting your bathtub to a shower! A bathtub to shower conversion will take your old, unused, or unwanted bathtub and re-use this space by turning it into a shower. It’s a quick and gorgeous way to get the shower you’ve always wanted at an affordable price.
What are Tub to Shower Conversions?
A tub to shower conversion will take your old bathtub and turn it into a shower. The process by which this is done starts with the removal of the existing tub and replacing it with a custom-fitted shower base. Then, the wall is repaired so that it can hold a new waterproof solid wall surround. Once the converted shower is finalized, the shower door is installed and then your new shower is ready to use!
Save Money with a Tub to Shower Conversion
By choosing a tub to shower conversion for your bathroom remodel, you can save a good bit of money. First, by keeping the current wall structure and plumbing in-place you are avoiding these expenses all together. Then, by partnering with an experienced Maryland bath to shower conversion contractor, you will also be saving precious time because the conversion itself will be a one-day project. As we all know time is money. Finally, by using a solid wall surround for your new shower, you will be saving money overall in materials when compared to the costs of tile or stone.
Low Cost Doesn’t Mean Cheap-Looking
Converting a shower from a bathtub can save you quite a lot of money in your bathroom remodeling project. That said, just because the cost is low doesn’t mean the end product will look cheap. In fact, the most timeless-looking showers are historically those which stick to white bathroom fixtures because the color white never goes out of style. Even so, if you’re looking to try and match your shower conversion to your current tile flooring or other bathroom fixtures, let your bathroom remodeling company know this and see what options they have available.
