The Rewards of Bathtub to Shower Conversion

 

Bathtubs are great commodities to have. They can help people calm their minds and relax their nervous system. Not only are you able to keep yourself clean, but bathing has other effects too, like regulating your blood pressure and giving you a better night’s sleep allowing you to feel more refreshed the next day. On top of all this, baths can become a place of peace for you after a long and stressful day at work. However, for the past few years, the trend in bathrooms has slowly started to shift into having showers instead of baths. Not only is this cheaper than getting a full bathroom makeover, but it also gives your bathroom a modern and inviting look.

Most people are not sold on just looks alone, so we compiled some of the most common rewards of converting your bathtub to shower instead. At the end of the day, the decision will still be yours, but we hope that these benefits can give you a better understanding of what you would want for your bathroom.

Convenience and Efficiency

Bathtubs can be very relaxing when used right. However, they take a little while to fill up, and they use more water than taking showers. A quick shower will use up an average of 12 gallons of water while a bathtub holds 25-45 gallons. Showers are obviously more efficient, especially if you are trying to cut down on your electric and water bills.

Space

Tubs generally take up a lot of space in the bathroom. Converting them into showers will not only let you maximize your bathroom’s space, but it will also give it a more modern and stylish look.

Less Maintenance

Having a bathtub in your house usually means more cleaning. Older tubs were made with hard to clean surfaces, which meant it needed more scrubbing and constant maintenance to keep it looking clean. Having a shower, on the other hand, ensures that there is less maintenance and the materials being used are more durable. Since we use our showers every day, they take a lot of wear and tear. The materials need to be as durable as they can be.

Safety

Bathtubs can get slippery throughout time. This presents a huge problem, especially for people who are less mobile and active like the handicapped and the senior citizens. Having a shower not only provides better safety, but it is also more accessible. Walk-in showers typically provide less slipping, which means that accidents are less likely to happen than in bathtubs.

Elegance

Since tubs take up a lot of space, they are easily noticed and catches the eye’s attention. If they are outdated or old, they can be an eyesore. Showers provide a modern feel and stylish vibe that you can customize based on what you want your bathroom to look like.
