Advantages Of Tub To Shower Conversion

Converting your tub into a shower can provide multiple benefits to your home. Some of the most noticeable include:

  • It boosts the aesthetics of your bathroom in a more affordable manner.
  • Your bathroom will feel more roomy and spacious.
  • It reduces some of the maintenance that tubs require.
  • Small children and elderly family members will have a safer bathing experience.

Switching from a tub to a shower is cost-effective and much less time-consuming than a full bathroom remodeling project. If you have additional questions or concerns about tub conversions– reach out to our team members as soon as possible.

Does A Tub Conversion Affect Resale Value?

A tub conversion can affect the resale value of a home, both positively and negatively, depending on various factors such as the local real estate market, buyer preferences and the quality of the conversion. Here are some considerations:

  • Market demand
  • Buyer preferences
  • Quality of work
  • Local housing market
  • Comparable sales
  • Cost vs. value

Whether a tub conversion affects resale value depends on a combination of factors. Before making any significant changes, it’s advisable to consult with a local real estate agent or appraiser who can provide insights into how such a conversion might impact the value of your specific property in your local market.

Could I Relocate My New Shower?

For your tub-to-shower conversion, you may be interested in moving the shower to a different part of the bathroom. While it is possible to relocate a shower during a tub-to-shower conversion, it’s a task that should be approached with careful planning and professional guidance.

The feasibility, cost and complexity of the relocation will depend on your specific bathroom layout and plumbing configuration. Consulting with the experts at Legacy Bath and Kitchen is essential to ensure a successful and safe shower relocation.
