If you are planning a bathroom remodel and are not sure what to do with your old bathtub, you can either replace it or convert it into a shower. The right option depends on different factors, such as your remodeling goals, budget and time constraints, personal preferences and accessibility concerns.
Here are the advantages of bathtub replacement and tub-to-shower conversion.
Benefits of Bathtub Replacement
- Luxurious Experience
If you like taking your time in the bathroom and having a spa-like experience, you should replace your old tub. Bathtubs are ideal for pampering yourself and relaxing at the end of an exhausting day or week.
- Easier Access
Outdated tubs are difficult to use, especially for people with limited mobility. Fortunately, you can replace your old bathtub with a walk-in tub so you can have an easier time getting in and out of the tub.
- Opportunity for a Total Makeover
Tub replacement is such an impactful way to improve your bathroom. It gives you the chance to update walls and other parts of your bathroom, making a significant change in the space.
Benefits of Tub-to-Shower Conversion
If you rarely use your bathtub, converting it to a shower would be practical. Consult a remodeling contractor to help you select a shower system that meets your needs and matches your taste.
- Increased Accessibility
Converting a tub into a shower allows you to have a barrier-free, roll-in base. You can also add features like grab bars, seating, handheld showerheads and wheelchair-accessible fixtures.
- Up-to-Date Style
Whether you want neo-angle bases or customized wall patterns, you can achieve it with a tub-to-shower conversion. Be sure to find a remodeling contractor that offers an array of modern designs and style options for your shower system.
