    Most Common Bathroom Remodel

    Did you know that a batub to shower remodel is the most common remodeling jobs in a bathroom? There are many reasons that it is - your children are grown and there's no need to bathe a child in a bathtub, or your bathtub is outdated and a walk-in shower would upgrade your bathroom, or like many bathrooms the bathtub just isn't used. It's also partly to the busy lives we all now have and just don't have the time for a nice long soaking bath.

    There are a few pros of a bathtub to shower remodel:

    • Improved access - a walkin shower provides easier access in and out with more room inside to maneuver around while showering. This is one of the reasons a shower is safter than bathtubs
    • Takes up less room - this will give you more space in your bathroom as a whole. It also allows for showers to fit better in small bathrooms
    • Improve safety of your home - one of the most common accidents in the bathroom is slipping and falling and more common to slipp while stepping out of a bathtub.
    • Perception of More Space - add a clear shower door to your shower. Even if your new shower actually takes more space than your old bathtub, desinged appropriately, the bathroom will look and feel bigger.
    • Improve value of your home - a tub to shower remodel can add value to your home with an investment that should repay you more when you sale.
    • Water Bill - because you no longer have to fill up a bathtub, a shower can save you money every year. A lot of us do not think of this money saving benefit of a tub to shower remodel.

    Of course with Pros there's Cons:

    • No Soaking - if you do not have another bathtub in the house, you will not have a place to relax and soak at the end of your day. If you enjoy a good soak and your bathtub does not have a shower head, you might want to consider adding a shower head over the tub to give you both options.
    • Children - children are a joy and blessing and they LOVE bathtime. It's also much easier washing smaller children in the bathtub.
    • When going to sell, if there are no other bathtubs in the house, it could make it more difficult to sell to a family with children. Might need to then look at a shower to bathtub remodel. So think carefully when planning your remodel
