Tub to Shower Conversions

Bathroom renovations are one of the most impactful ways to increase your home’s value. While you may hear that you should keep your bathtub, it’s not the right solution for everyone. A tub to shower conversion improves accessibility and updates your bathroom with a wide variety of materials and accessories. It not only modernizes the look but improves safety while increasing your home’s value. 

One of the emerging trends in home design is aging in place. That means providing a way for residents to step into and out of the shower easily and independently as you get older. At USA Bath, we can replace your old, dated, or unused bathtub with a new shower solution that fits your current and future needs.

What Is a Tub to Shower Conversion?

Our experienced USA Bath team will remove your existing bathtub in a tub to shower conversion and replace it with a shower. This project is becoming one of the most popular upgrades requested by homeowners who never use the bathtub. It is frequently requested by those who have mobility issues that make it difficult to get in and out of a tub or plan to move an aging parent into their home. A tub to shower conversion can also increase the usable space in small bathrooms.

Benefits of a Tub to Shower Conversion

A tub to shower conversion provides many immediate and lasting benefits, including:

  • Improved safety and accessibility
  • Lowered maintenance
  • Heightened style
  • Optimized space 

Improved Safety and Accessibility

A bathtub requires agility. This can be prohibitive and even dangerous for those with limited mobility. Replacing your tub with a walk-in or roll-in shower provides enhanced safety and accessibility. We can customize your new shower solution to ADA standards, adding wider doorways, unobstructed entry, lowed seating and fixtures, and grab bars. Non-slip tiles can add an additional safety element to prevent falls.

High-Quality Materials Mean Less Maintenance

Anyone who has ever lived with a dated bathroom is familiar with the never-ending effort to clean stained or damaged grout, porcelain, or tile. Today’s high-quality materials are designed with busy homeowners in mind. They offer improved durability and ease of cleaning, with integrated technology that minimizes mold and mildew. Imagine having the look of a new shower without the scrubbing and constant maintenance of yesterday’s tubs! 

Modern Design Provides Heightened Style

Older bathtubs can be an eyesore. If you still have an older combination tub and shower, the curtain or surround can make the room look small and closed in. Modern showers can be a showpiece with stylish fixtures, tiles, and overall design. Our talented team of designers will work with you to pick the perfect solution according to your available square footage, layout, and goals.  

Optimized Floor Space 

Bathtubs take up a lot of space. When you work with USA Bath to do your tub to shower conversion, you can open up the space to give your bathroom the feel and appearance of a bigger, more spacious room. Depending on your choices for the shower surround, it can virtually disappear, making your room look much larger and more modern. Your new shower can be customized to your individual needs and style by working with our designers to pick your ideal fixtures, showerheads, door style, tile material, design, wall surrounds, and shelving.

How Much Does It Cost To Do a Tub to Shower Conversion?

You may ask, what is the average cost to replace a bathtub with a walk-in shower? First, consider that an average existing bathtub holds 50 gallons of water. Since most of that water is heated, it means that your water heater has to reheat almost its full capacity every time you bathe, using expensive electricity. When you compare that cost to the more energy-efficient and eco-friendly shower, you may be pleasantly surprised that the cost isn’t as expensive as you might think, particularly when compared to the cost of building a custom shower from scratch.

Tub to Shower Conversions vs. Bathroom Remodeling

Converting a tub to a shower is quick, convenient, and cost-effective. You can have a luxurious custom look at a fraction of the price of a fully renovated bathroom. Not only does a tub to shower conversion improve resale, accessibility, safety, and space in your existing bathroom, but your room will look as if it is fully renovated. With our extensive offering, you can have the style you want at a fraction of the time of a full bathroom remodel.
