Many homeowners are considering getting rid of their tub and shower combo. More often than not, they do this as an aging-in-place plan to make the room more accessible once they get older. That said, a tub-to-shower conversion isn’t just to make the bathroom easier to use for your elderly loved ones.
In this post, Dreamstyle Remodeling shares the other reasons you should consider a shower conversion.
More Floor Space
Bathtubs take a lot of space. Even in larger bathrooms, the tub can reduce the floor space significantly and make the are feel crowded and cramped. Getting rid of the tub or converting it into a shower area opens up the floor space to create a larger and more luxurious bath area.
More floor space also means there are fewer obstacles getting in your way as you enter and exit the bathroom. The cleared up space allows you to place your bathroom essentials in the area where you tub used to be.
Modern bathrooms, with their sleek and minimalist design, are something of a challenge in the realm of bathroom remodeling. This stems from the fact that most are being transformed from a classic or ornate bathtub that needs a lot of reworking to make it more modern.
Turning the tub into a shower area is one big step to a more modern bathtub. Showers are more practical and space-efficient than bathtubs, something modern bathrooms value as they typically have smaller floor areas.
Space for Sliding Doors
Shower curtains are pretty to look at, but they can get messy and they tend to retain dirt and debris longer. On top of that, they appear heavy to look at, which reduces the visual space of the bath. Compare this to a sliding door, which is sleeker and cleaner, and looks flush to the rest of the bath.
Converting your tub area into a shower gives you room to install a sliding door. Apart from giving the bathroom a clean and polished look, it also visually opens the space, thanks to its clear glass area.
