When was the last time you filled up that giant bathtub with dozens of gallons of water for a bath? If you cannot remember, then maybe you don’t need that bathtub after all. In fact, many homeowners are coming to this conclusion and getting rid of their bathtub for a walk-in shower instead. You might be thinking, however, whether the effort is worth it. We are not here to debate preferences, but we do have some reasons for and some reasons against getting the bathtub-to-shower conversion. The choice is ultimately yours. If you have already made up your mind and need a reliable plumbing company to get the work done, then call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh to consult with a friendly representative today.
Let’s start with the default: leaving the bathtub as it is. A warm bath is certainly one way to relax after a long day of work. Your own mini spa at home is hard to say no to. Plus, you already have a showerhead over the tub, so what’s so bad about enjoying the best of both worlds? Well, we’ll get to that in the following section. If you do take advantage of the bathtub regularly, then continue enjoying it. If you are looking to upgrade your bathtub to a larger one, or one with better material and more features, then consider hiring a skillful plumber from Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh. We are happy to help you choose a great new bathtub!
It might just be us, but we have a few more reasons to go with a walk-in shower than with a bathtub.
For beginners, walk-in showers are easier to access. This is crucial for aging homeowners who struggle with stepping over the side of a tub – especially when their feet are wet!
Believe it or not, getting rid of the bathtub can make your small bathroom look larger. They both take up the same amount of physical space, but the walk-in shower takes up much less visual space, making your bathroom look more spacious.
If you are looking to reduce your environmental impact, then ditching the bathtub is a great way to go. It is no secret that baths use up a LOT of water.
The cost to replace a bathtub with a walk-in shower will depend on a few things. First, we have to determine whether the plumbing and drains will need to be re-done. Next, we need to know what type of shower you’re interested in. Some styles are more expensive than others, and this depends on the size and material of the walk-in shower. Speaking of material, the flooring will also affect the cost of the conversion. The friendly representatives at Mr. Rooter Plumbing are happy to provide a consultation and get you a price estimate upfront.
