A recessed wall, the boring, rectangular tub, and that sad shower head hanging a little too low on the wall for comfortable use. There's only so many ways to remodel an existing shower/tub combo. But, you do have the option of getting a tub to shower conversion from JR Luxury Bath. When you are ready to replace your bath with a shower, we can completely install a new one within one day!
Of course, getting rid of the bathtub may seem a little crazy, but it can completely change the way your bathroom looks and functions. You'll have more freedom, a fresh space, and improved use of the previous bath/shower enclosure. There are a few potential downsides of this kind of bathroom remodeling, Cleveland homeowners should consider. Before you get started with a conversion, let's take a look at the pros and cons of replacing your bathtub with a shower.
The Pros of a Tub to Shower Conversion
Perhaps the best reason for removing the bathtub from your home is to create more space in a tiny bathroom. This is a big complaint of many homeowners who seek a Cleveland bathroom renovation. A tub to shower conversion frees up several cubic feet in a cramped bathroom. While you are at it, you can also opt for one of the many styles and designs available in a shower remodel. JR Luxury Bath provides a range of options, including a:
- Corner shower
- Barrier-free option
- Roll-in shower
- Walk-in shower
Modern showers also come with many accessories and upgrades. Select an enclosure with shelving or a built-in shower seat. Choose a sliding or pivot glass enclosure and add custom tiling to give your shower a unique touch. With the available design and style options, homeowners can enjoy a luxurious bathroom without having to check into a five-star hotel.
The Cons of Not Having a Bathtub
However, removing the bathtub has some drawbacks. Families need a bathtub for their kids to use. Children tend to prefer baths over showers. Plus, baths are slightly less messy if the parent still has to help the kids get clean. You may also find that your home is less appealing to families should you decide to sell.
If you do plan on selling your home, you might want to limit the conversion to a master bath and preserve the shower/tub combo in a second bath, if you have one. This way those who get bathroom remodeling in Cleveland will still be able to market their homes to families. Finally, a nice, hot bath is very relaxing. If you like to soak in the tub, you'll probably miss it when it's gone.
