Why You Should Convert Your Tub to a Shower

March 17, 2020 | Blog

Remodeling your bathroom can be a great way to spruce up your house and make it feel like new. When doing a bathroom renovation, saving money and being eco-friendly are considerations many homeowners keep top of mind. Here are some of the top reasons it’s smart to convert your bathtub into a shower.

It’s Good for the Environment

When you take a shower compared to a bath, you’re environmentally conscious about the amount of water you’re using. An average 10-minute shower will use only 20 gallons of water, on average. This amount is almost half the amount of a standard bath, which uses a whopping 36 gallons per fill-up of the tub.

It’ll Increase the Resale Value of Your Home

On average, 60% of homeowners prefer to have a walk-in shower to a traditional bathtub. When looking at selling your house, upgrades like this could make or break the house closing. Having an updated bathroom is essential to many potential buyers.

Having a Walk-In Shower is Safer

Having an upgraded, walk-in shower is much safer for those with accessibility issues. As people get older, getting in and out of a bathtub can become more of a strenuous task. This problem can lead to accidents such as falling in or out of the tub and possibly becoming injured.

You Can Save on Space

Having a bathtub in your bathroom could potentially take up the majority of the square-footage in your space. Having a walk-in shower can give you the extra space needed for additional storage and can make the room feel bigger.
