3 Benefits Of Converting A Bathtub Into A Walk-In Shower

May 23, 2023 | Blog

Has your bathtub become more hazardous than helpful? Do you struggle to make use of it with your busy schedule?

Here at Legacy Bath & Kitchen, our goal is to make your San Antonio home as functional and comfortable as possible. We offer lots of different home renovation services, from bathroom remodeling to kitchen countertop replacements and so much more! Our staff members are dedicated to helping you design the bathroom or kitchen of your dreams – so you can rely on us and the quality of our work every time we step through your door.

Read on for more information on why bathtub conversions are beneficial and ways that our team can support you.

A Tub-To-Walk-In Shower Conversion Boosts Your Home’s Value

One notable perk of transforming your bathtub into a shower is that it can increase your house’s resale value. If you and your family are looking to move in the near future, remodeling your bathroom and modernizing it often attracts more buyers and generates interest in your home. Upgrading the features in your shower and making it more spacious is usually more appealing to prospective homebuyers than keeping an old tub.

If you have questions or concerns about this process and how our Legacy team goes about converting your tub into a shower – feel free to chat with us over the phone or in person!

Bathtub Replacements Require Less Maintenance

When it comes to keeping your bathroom squeaky clean, walk-in showers are much easier to monitor and maintain than bathtubs. Some of the most common tub issues that homeowners deal with include:

  • Soap scum accumulating on exposed surfaces
  • Mold and mildew growing in tub nooks and crannies
  • Caulk lines slowly deteriorating
  • Stains discoloring the floors and sides of one’s tub
  • Clogged drains
  • Leaks around the seams of one’s tub

Converting your old, dingy tub into a sparkly walk-in shower can cut your cleaning time in half. Most showers require fewer repairs or part replacements due to advancements in bathroom designs and products.

Walk-In Showers Are Safer And More Convenient

Interested in learning how walk-in showers beat tubs when it comes to saving you time and energy and keeping you safe?

Current trends have made tile floors popular within showers and bathroom spaces. Unlike smooth, slippery tubs, textured flooring reduces the risk of accidental falls while preparing to take a nice, hot shower.

You can also install a bench in your walk-in shower for better comfort and stability which is nearly impossible for bathrooms with tubs. Walk-in showers are generally more accessible and functional for the elderly or those with disabilities.
