Have you considered converting your old bathtub into a nice, new shower? If you are reading this, the idea of conversion has probably crossed your mind. Or maybe you’ve seen an advertisement from one of the local Maryland bathroom remodeling companies and are wondering what it is? Either way, tub to shower conversion is a rather popular request we get at the Bath Doctor, and it’s popular for a reason.

Why Tub to Shower Conversion Makes Sense

Most older homes come with the traditional tub and shower combo. You have this rather small bathtub that features two types of fixtures: a regular faucet and a showerhead, typically placed on the same wall. It’s the best of both worlds, isn’t it? Well, not so much. By combining the two, you can’t fully enjoy either one.

People who like to draw a bath every once in a while don’t have enough room to lay comfortably in this tiny tub. Besides, the tub gets filthy rather quickly when you use the shower, so having to clean it every time before bathing is an extra chore. If you use your bath/shower combo exclusively for showering, you don’t really need the tub, and it’s just an extra surface to scrub and an unnecessary wall to climb over.

Tub to shower conversion makes sense for anyone who doesn’t get much use from their tub. And here are some of the benefits that come with it:

  • Gain more floor space for your shower
  • No more climbing to get into the shower
  • You can still sit down on a built-in bench
  • Sliding shower door instead of the messy curtain

How Tub to Shower Conversion Works

In order to convert your bathtub into a shower, we first need to remove the existing structure, including the bathtub itself, the wall surround and the fixtures. Then you pick the color scheme for your new shower and we install our low-maintenance wall system to create a shower enclosure.

All of our shower wall systems feature matching corner caddies for convenient storage of your toiletries. We can also install additional elements, such as grab bars and shower seats to create a safer and more comfortable showering experience. And clear glass doors never fail to make a bathroom feel more open and spacious.

Is Tub to Shower Conversion Right For You?

A tub to shower conversion is an easy and inexpensive way to freshen up your bathroom and make it more functional. This easy fix will help you enjoy your showering experience even more. Also, if you or your loved one suffer from mobility issues due to old age or physical trauma, using a shower will be much easier for them. It’s easier to get in, has more room to move around and is easy to maintain.
