5 Things To Consider Before Converting Your Bathtub to a Shower

Feb 13, 2024

Are you considering converting your bathtub to a shower? While this can be a great way to update your bathroom and enhance its functionality, there are several factors to consider before making the switch. Here are five key things to think about before embarking on a bathtub to shower conversion: 

  1. Space Constraints: Evaluate the available space in your bathroom to determine if it can accommodate a shower comfortably. Consider the size and layout of the area where the bathtub currently sits and whether there is enough room to install a shower without crowding the space. 
  1. Accessibility Needs: Assess your accessibility needs and how they align with a shower conversion. If you or someone in your household has mobility issues or prefers easier access to the bathing area, a walk-in shower with grab bars and a low threshold may be a more suitable option compared to a traditional bathtub. 
  1. Resale Value: Consider the potential impact on the resale value of your home. While a shower may be more practical for your current needs, some homebuyers prefer properties with both a bathtub and a shower. Evaluate the preferences of potential future buyers in your area before making a final decision. 
  1. Plumbing Requirements: Determine if your existing plumbing system can support a shower installation. Converting a bathtub to a shower may require adjustments to the plumbing, including rerouting pipes and installing new fixtures. Factor in the cost and complexity of these plumbing modifications when planning your conversion project. 
  1. Design Preferences: Think about your design preferences and how they align with the aesthetic of your bathroom. Consider factors such as shower enclosure options, tile selections, and shower fixture styles to ensure that the new shower complements the overall look and feel of your space. 

Converting your bathtub to a shower can be a rewarding home improvement project, but it’s essential to carefully consider these factors before proceeding. By evaluating your space, accessibility needs, resale value implications, plumbing requirements, and design preferences, you can make an informed decision that meets your needs and enhances your bathroom’s functionality and aesthetics.
