Tub to Shower Conversions with Acrylic

February 5, 2019

If you’re remodeling your bathroom, you might be thinking about turning your tub in to a shower. However, the question is whether or not this change is practical. Chances are, it probably probably will be. There are several things to consider while wondering if you should convert your shower to a tub, and we’re going to talk about them today.

Do You Use It?

We live in a fast-paced world where being on the go is the norm. Though there are some applications for a bathtub in the average person’s life, for the most part, we have moved on to showering. Unlike generations passed, people tend to spend less time soaking and more time getting things done.

This is especially true when it comes time to clean it. A traditional bath tub, especially one surrounded by tile, is going to take a lot more time to clean than a smooth, simple surface of acrylic. Acrylic is easy to clean and simple to maintain, which makes it a great asset to anyone who wants to spend more time doing what they love and less time cleaning their bathroom.

Another good thing about only having a shower is the no-barrier shower base. This means you don’t need to step over the tub walls to get in and out of the shower, you can simply just walk out. A shower that does not have a bathtub base is a shower that is easier to clean, too. This may be perfect for people looking to age in place, for people who struggle with mobility, and anyone else who may not wish to deal with a step while climbing in and out of the bathtub.
