Five reasons to convert a tub into a modern walk-in shower in Boston

Converting a bathtub to a modern walk-in shower is a popular bathroom renovation. There are numerous reasons why you might consider this home upgrade.

Perhaps you rarely use your bathtub, which means wasted space that could be used more efficiently. Maybe you are tired of your tub because it is old and rundown. If you are planning to sell your home, a newly renovated walk-in shower could improve its resale value. Maybe you or a loved one face mobility issues, and a shower conversion would allow you to live in the home longer.

Here are five popular reasons to convert a tub into a low-maintenance shower. Call Boston Plumbers 911’s licensed technicians to quote and complete the project.

A shower is more physically accessible

According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries for those over the age of 65. Many of these injuries happen to get in and out of a bathtub. Converting a tub to a shower significantly lowers this danger and enables seniors to live independently in their homes longer.

Reach out to Boston Plumbers 911 to help you with this conversion project. 

A shower is easier to clean

Bathtubs are challenging to clean, especially if they contain tile and grout. Unsightly and ugly grime accumulates in the difficult-to-reach corners and cracks of a bathtub. A modern shower is convenient to clean because there are fewer places for dirt to hide. Choose a shower door with a trackless bottom, and the shower practically cleans itself whenever you use it.

A shower provides extra space and convenience

Hiring a Boston plumber to convert your bathtub into a walk-in shower opens up the space in your bathroom. You have a roomier space to bath, and the length of the bathtub wastes less space. A shower prioritizes your area in a more convenient dimension you will use. You save on space and make better use of the room overall.
