How Tub-to-Shower Conversions are Beneficial

A shower is one of the most important places in your home. It’s a place where you can relax and rejuvenate after a long day. But if you shower in a bathtub it may not only be outdated but downright dangerous. That’s where a tub-to-shower conversion comes in!

There are many advantages of converting your tub into a shower, including:

  1. Increased safety – Stepping over the high side of a bathtub is a fall hazard, espeically for seniors who may struggle to maintain their balance while getting their legs over the side. And if the tub floor is slippery, the danger just compounded.  A low threshold walk-in shower with a non-slip floor goes a long way to reduce fall risks and give peace of mind for everyone.
  2. More space – Ditching the tub frees up a lot of valuable space. A shower in place of a tub is going to instantly gain extra elbow room as you now have straight walls down  to the shower pan instead of the limits of the bathtub. This extra space is safer as well with more room to turn and adjust.
  3. Easier to maintain – If you opt for a wall configuration rather than tile or plastic, such as HomePride’s KOHLER LuxStone, you no longer have to bend down to reach all of the tub and wall nooks and crannies and will have a non-porous surface with no grout to maintain. 
  4. Incorporate built-in safety features – Swap your high-sided slippery tub including that unstable shower chair and suction cup grab bars for a walk-in shower. You can build in all of the safety features such as grab bars, shower seat, hand held shower heads, inset storage, and more. Safety can be beautiful when designed as part of your shower system.
  5. Faster – If you’re always pressed for time in the morning, showers are faster than baths, so you can get ready for your day quicker.
  6. Less expensive – Converting your tub to a shower is typically less expensive than renovating your entire bathroom. So if you’re on a budget, this is a great option.

No matter what your reason, when you are ready to explore your tub conversion options trust the pros at HomePride to guide you to the right choice for your home and lifestyle.
