Your bathroom is a space that you use every day. If it’s something you’re putting up with instead of enjoying, it’s time for a change. We get it—those builder-grade tub and shower combos are common. You might even think that taking the tub out will hurt your resale value. But let’s be real—isn’t your safety and comfort in your home more important than a few hundred dollars on a theoretical value?

The average duration of homeownership in the US is 13 years. That’s a long time to put up with something that is dated, ugly, or dangerous. Converting your bathtub to a walk-in shower can be a great way to add subtle accessibility that makes your bathing routine a little safer as you age. And the updated style with customizable options will surely beat what you currently have. Here are three reasons to make the switch from our Tampa area bathroom remodeling pros.

Enjoy a Safer Bathing Experience

A walk-in shower provides a low-barrier or barrier-free entry option that makes getting in the shower a lot easier on your joints. You might not think that a bathtub wall is that high until your hips start to feel your age. Then, all of the sudden, the simple task of taking a shower becomes a safety risk. If you still think you can manage, just keep in mind that the shower creates wet surfaces that make it easier to slip and fall. Do you really want to risk a broken hip getting out of the shower?

Improve the Aesthetic Appeal of your Home

Luxury Bath is an industry-leading tub and shower manufacturer. We provide dozens of colors, styles, and patterns to help you create a stylish shower that fits seamlessly with your home. Get the look of real tile, complete with realistic grout lines, without the upkeep of real tile. Our engineered surfaces are made from durable acrylics and treated with Microban protection to inhibit mold and mildew growth.

Make the Best Use of your Space

Converting your tub to a walk-in shower is a great opportunity to make better use of a small space. Not only will a standing shower take up a smaller footprint, but you can add the right accessories like shelving and seating to enhance the space you have. For small bathrooms we love the idea of adding a fold-down seat that is there when you need it and tucked out of the way when you don’t.

The Bottom Line

A tub-to-shower conversion by Luxury Bath is the perfect way to add style, functionality, and safety to your daily hygiene routine. If your family has outgrown the need for a standard bathtub, there is no reason to keep dealing with the struggle of a bathroom that isn’t working for you.
