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?

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.
