Why You Should Consider a Tub-to-Shower Conversion



If you have already chosen your forever home, it’s never too early to start thinking about how you can make it safer and more accessible. How about starting with your bathroom? If that large and outdated bathtub isn’t seeing much use, consider having it converted into a shower. DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greenville, the premier mobility remodeling expert in the area, details the advantages of a tub-to-shower conversion.

  1. Ensures a safer bathing experience. As people age, stepping over the side of a tub becomes somewhat of a hurdle. This is where a tub-to-shower conversion becomes especially handy. The shower has a very low threshold, which means it is easier and safer to access to the space. 
  2. Makes cleanup and maintenance more manageable. Showers are just more convenient in the mobility remodeling sense. Compared to a bathtub, they are faster and easier to clean, which helps eliminate the potential for mold and mildew growth.
  3. Creates a larger bathroom space. Converting a tub into a shower can make your bathroom look and feel larger. This, in turn, allows for easier movement in the space. This can be extremely useful if you want the bathroom to be wheelchair-accessible.
