Shower to Tub Conversions: Where to Start

We wouldn’t really say that this project is necessarily a complex one. But we would say that making some specific choices early on will have a demonstrable impact on your success and results. To be sure you’re getting exactly what you’re looking for, start with these steps:

  1. Making measurements. Before you do anything at all, you’re going to need to know the measurements of the space you’re working with. Your new tub is going to have to either fit well within the restrictions of your space, or you’re going to need to know whether or not you need to remodel the space itself to get what you want. Either way this is a very big deal, and will impact all of your decisions going forward.
  2. Decide why you’re making this conversion. Is this a luxury move, or one you need to make for the sake of practicality? Knowing what you’re going for, and why you are doing so, is going to play a vital role in what kind of bath you’re looking for.
  3. Define a budget. Budgeting for your conversion project is a pretty important step. It’s going to essentially make an effective guideline and baseline for your project going forward, and can help you ensure you don’t overstep your comfort zone when it comes to spending.
  4. Learn about your options. Shower to tub conversion is a fairly broad topic, with lots and lots of possibilities. At Re-Bath & More we offer a wide array of option for homeowners looking to convert, and it is vitally important to our team that you get exactly what you’re looking for. Are you looking for a walk-in bath as a practical solution, or do you want the relaxing advantages of a whirlpool bath? It’s up to you!
