Benefits of a Tub to Shower Conversion

A popular bathroom remodeling project that can add value, and is relatively hassle free, is a tub to shower conversion. When the design and work are done well, it can be an effective way to improve overall satisfaction with your home.

A tub to shower conversion usually involves replacing an existing bathtub with a new shower, usually a walk-in shower. It allows you to take full advantage of the space in a smaller bathroom. It is also a good option for those who are elderly, disabled or have mobility issues.

Bathroom remodel before and after

A client recently contacted Modern Blu to complete a tub to shower conversion. The Jack and Jill bathroom was 20 years old and, recently, the family’s teenage son slipped and fell while taking a shower. During the incident, he hit his head on the wall leaving a hole in the tile and in the wall behind the shower.

​​

The client decided that it was time to remodel the bathroom, complete with a tub to shower conversion, new tile flooring, a new vanity and a new toilet. The process began by gutting the bathroom interior which was able to be completed in just a couple of days.

Installing the new shower, bathroom floor, vanity and toilet was a straightforward process that only took a short period of time. Depending on materials and availability of workers, many small bathroom remodels can be completed in a week.

Bathroom shower transformation

The end result was a more aesthetically pleasing bathroom and a shower that was much safer for the client. Below are the before and after pictures of the bath to shower conversion.

Safe, accessible shower area

A tub to shower conversion can provide a much safer area for showering, especially for those with mobility issues. Stepping over the side of a bathtub and onto a slippery surface can pose a safety hazard even for those without disability or mobility issues. A walk-in shower can be designed to meet ADA standards. Customizations may include low seating, grab bars and other features.
