What Is a Shower to Bath Conversion?

The process of converting a shower enclosure into a bathtub or a tub-and-shower combination stall is known as a shower-to-bath conversion. To revitalize the space to fit the bathtub unit, this type of project usually necessitates full bathroom construction down to the studs. We can turn walk-in showers and tub-and-shower combos into the bathing room of your dreams.

Stunning features such as a new soaker, jacuzzi, and clawfoot tub can be added in a shower to tub conversion. In addition to the comfort and relaxation you and your family get from this, the shower conversion also makes your bathroom more attractive, easier to clean, and allows you to update the style of your entire bathing area. To achieve these entail updating the tile walls, installing trendy fixtures, and even redoing the flooring to match your new tub style.

Ideas to Convert a Shower to a Tub

Several questions such as, Is it still necessary to take a shower in the bathroom? Is there enough room to turn the shower into a bathtub and install a second walk-in shower somewhere else? should come to mind when considering a shower to bathtub conversion. It is very necessary to critically consider all of your options for making the most of your space. Here are a few suggestions for converting your shower to a tub or tub-shower combined unit.

Standalone Bathtub Space

Because a free-standing bathtub is not attached to any walls, the space's construction can be more flexible. We can present you with options based on the square footage of the space and whether you're willing to plumb. Some homeowners prefer a more private room to relax in, which necessitates the use of half walls or pocket doors to provide separation. Others choose to display their magnificent cast iron tub in their specialized area out in the open. Whatever your preferences are, we'll work with you to create the ideal layout for your new tub.

Drop in Bathtubs

Drop-in bathtubs offer you an alternative for putting a tub at ground level or placing the tub behind a tiled surround, giving your bathroom a more elegant feel. It is also great at retaining the water inside the tub because they have a raised rim over the surround. As a result, drop-in tubs are preferred by people who enjoy soaking in deep water without having to worry about flooding the bathroom.

Bathtub shells are often constructed of acrylic or fiberglass and fitted into a custom-built bathtub to complement the style and appearance of your bathroom.

Corner Bathtub

Corner Bathtub is ideal for bathrooms with inadequate space. Using triangular-shaped soakers, we can transform corner showers or small walk-in showers into corner bathtubs that use all of the available space and waste no square footage.

Alcove Bathtub

Alcove bathtubs, unlike drop-in tubs, are finished bathtubs linked to a three-sided enclosure, usually the bathroom walls thereby reducing the risk of falls from the bath. If the square footage matches your bathtub demands, this is an excellent choice if your shower was originally placed into three walls. If there is currently insufficient space for a tub, we may have to redesign the bathroom to adjust the footprint of the plan so as to accommodate the tub you desire.

Bathtub and Shower Combination

Shower-tub combos are ideal for people who want a prefabricated unit to enable easy switch or who want to customize their bathroom décor. It also favors all ages and members of the family.

We can help you build a tub and shower combo unit that gives you the best of both worlds: a spa-like soaker and a refreshing shower if you value the convenience of your existing standalone shower and want to keep it. We'll update the design to reflect your changing preferences and add lavish features like waterfall showerheads to make your new shower-tub combo feel like a splendor haven.
