To Bathe or Not to Bathe... Is a Walk-In Shower Right for You?

Tub to shower conversions are being requested more and more among homeowners. From the natural aging process to those with mobility issues, walk-in showers can make your daily routine easier and safer. When looking strictly at a resale point of view, most experts agree that you need to have at least one bathtub in your home. But that doesn't mean that a walk-in shower can't be perfect for your master or guest bathroom, even converting a downstairs bathroom to incorporate a walk-in shower.

There are two choices for a tub to shower conversion - simple change, which does not include a full bathroom remodel, and a complete bathroom renovation. Ultimately this decision will depend both on how you feel about your current bathroom design and your budget.

A walk-in shower may also be a great solution for a small bathroom where a standard bathtub is cumbersome and takes up the majority of the space. A walk-in shower will free up this area, removing the large space taken up by a bathtub and replacing it with a shower.

It goes without saying that showers are more accessible for those with mobility issues and older individuals. A walk-in shower can be designed with a very low threshold or even curbless entry making getting in out easy and ultimately minimizing fall risks. Many walk-in showers also feature a bench, which is a great amenity for everyone.

The choices for a tub to shower conversion can be surprising. From deciding whether to have a swinging door or sliding glass door to fixtures and shelving options, the customization available to the homeowner is truly endless.

HandyPro’s professionals have the proven experience to work with you from the design phase of planning your bathroom conversion a walk-in shower to the completed job.
