Relaxing in a bathtub is great. But honestly, a quick shower can save you a lot of time and money while giving you the same squeaky clean results. If you’re considering a much-needed tub to shower conversion, here are a few tips to make sure you’re making the right decision.
You Don’t Have to Get Rid of Your Tub
There are days when de-stressing with a bubble bath sounds like a fantastic idea and you always want to have that option. Additionally, if you’re thinking about selling your home in the future, many realtors will tell you to keep the bathtub.
So if you have more than one bathroom in your home, you should keep at least one in the house. Otherwise, a good combination of both can be an excellent compromise. Consider a walk-in tub installation instead.
Mind the Windows
It’s obvious why you don’t want windows in your shower. If the tub you’re replacing is above one, consider finding a new place for it. Apart from the hazards, you’ll be doubling your risk of mold growth with all the water leaking through the frames of your window. If you’re looking for a new place for it, choose an area with an existing water supply and drain pipe. This can save you plenty of money with plumbing.
No Need to Splurge, But Don’t Skimp Out
These days you can probably find a YouTube tutorial for just about anything. It’s tempting to take a do-it-yourself approach on a shower installation, but many experts agree that it’s both counter-productive and risky. The potential of damage does not outweigh the bucks you’ll save by doing it yourself. Besides, your shower is probably one of the few moments you can have to relax, clean and warm yourself up before heading off to bed. So instead of thinking “How much money can I save?” you should really be thinking “Where can I find the best bathroom remodelers near me?” instead.
