Tub to Shower Conversion in the Denver, CO Area
Convert your bathtub into an easy and safe walk-in shower!
If you are like many Americans, then it’s likely you prefer to take showers rather than baths; yet, most bathrooms have a shower and tub combo. While having a bathtub/shower combo can be beneficial when you have young children, once they are grown you may find yourself asking if you really need a bathtub anymore.
The fact is that most residential bathtubs are not large enough for the average person to comfortably relax in, and they can end up making it cumbersome to use your shower on a daily basis. If you find that you no longer use your bathtub, you may want to consider investing in a tub-to-shower conversion. Here are just a few of the benefits of converting your bathtub into a walk-in shower.
The biggest complaint homeowners have about shower/tub combos is that it can be difficult and cumbersome to get in and out of the shower, as you have to step over the bathtub’s high walls. In fact, these showers can pose a safety hazard, as it can be easy to trip or slip getting in or out of the shower, particularly if the bathtub’s floor is wet. This can be particularly worrisome if you or a family member is elderly and/or has mobility issues. Converting your tub to a walk-in shower can then remove a great deal of stress by making it easier and safer for you and your loved ones to get in and out of the shower.
Free Up Space
One of the main problems with bathtubs is that they are clunky and take up a great deal of space. If you have a smaller bathroom, this can be particularly problematic as much of your floor space is likely being taken up by the bathtub, and there is a lot of wasted space taken up by the tub’s sloping walls. Once your bathtub is removed, you will likely be surprised by how much bigger your bathroom will look and feel. Not only will you have additional floor space that will give you more room to move about in your bathroom, but this additional space also gives you the opportunity to put in a slightly larger shower stall, giving you more elbow room when showering.
If you have a bathtub, then you likely already know how difficult it can be to clean. In fact, many people claim that cleaning the bathtub is their least favorite chore. The fact is that bathtubs can be a hassle to clean as grime, dirt, and even mold can easily build up in hard-to-reach places. Upgrading to a modern shower will significantly reduce the amount of time you spend cleaning your bathroom, making things easier for you in the long run.
