Reasons to Get a Tub-to-Shower Conversion
A slow, relaxing soak in a tub is lovely once in a while, but nowadays there are a number of reasons to consider converting your bathtub into a shower. One of the most common reasons to get a tub-to-shower conversion is to make your bathing area more accessible; this is often the case when you or a loved one contends with limited mobility. For many, a shower is simply more practical as it uses less water than a bathtub and can leave you feeling much cleaner. Other reasons to consider getting a tub-to-shower conversion include:
Increased Usable Space in Your Bathroom
If your bathroom is, shall we say, “less than spacious,” a tub-to-shower conversion can help you gain a few extra square feet of usable space. And, while this may not sound like much at first blush, having a bit of extra elbow room can go a long way when it comes to drying off after bathing, doing your hair and makeup, brushing your teeth—or allowing your spouse to hop in and brush his/her teeth alongside you. Even cleaning your bathroom can be much easier when you have a few extra feet of space in which to maneuver the mop and broom.
Giving Your Bathroom a Much-Needed Facelift
There are few things that can make a bathroom look outdated more than an old bathtub, complete with mauve tile and lime-crusted spigots. If you have a tub that fits this description or something like it, replacing it with a sleek, easy-to-clean shower stall is a great way to bring your bathroom into the 21st century where it belongs. Not only will your bathroom be more pleasant for you—and your guests—to look at, but you can also finally say goodbye to the days of having to constantly scrub those mildew-ridden grout lines just to achieve an acceptable level of cleanliness.
Streamlining Your Daily Routine
Showers use much less water than bathtubs, which is great if you’re trying to be mindful of your water consumption. But another great reason to consider a tub-to-shower conversion is the time you’ll save by showering instead of bathing. Because you don’t have to wait for your tub to fill up with water or wait for it to drain before someone else can use it, your daily bathing routine—and that of anyone else you share a bathroom with—will be much quicker and easier.
