Can I Turn My Bathtub into a Shower?
July 18, 2018
The short answer is, “Yes!” It’s easy to convert your bathtub into a versatile new shower. However, the question is what your options are.
Today we’re going to take you through what it means to transform your bathtub into a shower and how you can make the most of the process. Let’s take a look.
How Does It Work?
Basically, what we will do is remove your current bathtub. Then, we’ll put down a brand new shower liner. The next step is to make sure that the walls are in good shape so that we can install a new waterproof solid wall surround.
Finally, you just need a door or curtain and your old bathtub is now a fully-functional shower. The process is quick and painless.
Why Convert to a Shower?
There are a few great reasons to perform a tub-to-shower conversion. Here are a few of the main ones:
Removing your bathtub can open up the room quite a bit and make your bathroom feel less cramped.
Easier to Clean
When you invest in one of our acrylic shower trays and solid wall surround, maintenance is a snap. All you’ll need to do is give the shower a wipe-down with a soft cloth and some gentle soap now and then. Cleaning grout will be a thing of the past.
Reinvent Your Bathroom
When you have your bathtub transformed into a shower, you can use it as the center-piece of your new bathroom’s design. Change the color and you’ll find yourself with a whole new room.
Age in Place
As you get older, you may find a bathtub will get in your way and make it harder to keep up with good hygiene. However, a barrier-free shower will provide you with easy access to washing without having to worry about a fall. Though this may not seem important to you now, you’ll thank yourself later when you’re in your golden years.
