convert tub to shower

Think you have to replace that old, nasty tub with another tub? Not necessarily!

Instead of replacing one tub you don’t like with another tub you won’t use, consider a bathroom conversion. Luxury Bath Texoma can replace a tub with a shower, providing you with the sparkling spa-like bathroom you’ve always dreamed of.

If you like the idea of getting rid of that tub for good and replacing it with a stylish and modern shower, follow these tips for making the right decision.

Don’t Replace Your Only Tub

If you have just one bathroom in your home, or you only have one full bath in your home, it may not be a good idea to get rid of your tub, even if you do replace it with a shower. If you have any plans to sell your home in the future, homebuyers often prefer homes that have a tub, especially if they have children.

However, there are some instances when you can consider replacing your only tub with a shower. If you own a relatively small condo, or if you’re looking for a safe and accessible option to age-in-place, you may decide to replace your only tub with a shower, regardless of how it will affect your home’s resale value.

Put the Walk in Shower Where Your Tub Was

Although you can rearrange your bathroom and put your shower somewhere else, the easiest way to remodel your bathroom is to put your walk-in shower where the tub was. Bases can easily be found that will fit into the footprint of your old tub without the need for heavy remodeling.

However, things can get complicated if you have a standalone tub, or if your tub is placed in front of a window. In these cases, you may have to consider putting your shower in a new spot.

Hire a Professional Remodeler for the Job

It is true that you could do your bathroom remodel on your own, but that isn’t a very good idea. One simple mistake and you could set your new shower up to leak, which in turn can result in mold and mildew. Not to mention, leaks and humidity can be dangerous when located so near to electrical systems.
