Is a Tub-to-Shower Conversion Right for Your Bathroom?

May 3, 2020

If you are in the market for a bathroom remodel, you may be carefully considering all of your design options. Does your outdated bathroom not meet your needs anymore? Having a well-designed bathroom not only adds to your enjoyment of the space, but can also add to your home’s value.

One of the biggest considerations homeowners have when redesigning a bathroom is whether or not to include a bathtub, a shower, or both. One popular option for many homeowners is a tub-to-shower conversion, which allows you to replace a dated bathtub with a large, modern shower. Let’s look at some things to consider when deciding if a tub-to-shower conversion is right for you.

Consider Your Family’s Needs

One of the biggest considerations when choosing whether or not to have a tub-to-shower conversion is what your family’s needs are. Do you have a baby or small child who would benefit from a tub rather than a shower? On the other hand, older homeowners could benefit greatly from a tub-to-shower conversion, as bathtubs can be difficult to get in and out of, and aren’t as accessible as showers.

Consider Your Other Bathrooms

Another thing to think about is what the other bathrooms in your home offer. Do you have multiple bathrooms? It is usually wise to include a bathtub in at least one of the bathrooms in the home. If you have multiple bathrooms with a tub and want to convert your master into a shower-only room, a tub-to-shower conversion can help you make better use of your space.

Consider Resale Value

Resale value is something to consider if you don’t plan to stay in your home for the long haul. Converting a tub into a large shower can increase your home’s value by making your bathroom more functional and modern. But if you don’t have another bathroom in the home with a tub, you could risk losing interest of some potential buyers that require a bathtub in their new home. Ideally, a tub-to-shower conversion is a perfect solution for homeowners who have more than one bathtub and want to replace one of them.
