Make your bathroom safe and accessible with a Tub to Shower Conversion

Bathtub to Shower Conversions

Walk-in showers offer improved safety, accessibility, and comfort for many homeowners.

Many people are not using bathtubs as much and are interested in converting a bathtub into a shower, and for good reason. Statistics show that converting a bathtub to a shower could prevent some serious accidents. In the U.S., over 25,000 accidents occur in and around bathtubs every year. Many of these mishaps occur as people try to step into their tub. Turning an under-used bathtub into a shower eliminates this tripping and falling hazard.

While many newer homes are built with showers instead of (or in addition to) tubs, older homes often have bathrooms with tubs that double as showers. Because most people take showers more than baths, there's no need for multiple bathtubs in the average house.

Converting a tub to a walk-in shower is easier than you think

You don't need major demolition and reconstruction to convert your existing bathtub. Great Lakes Home Renovations can provide shower conversion that can be completed from start to finish in just a few days.

If you replace the tub with a new shower base sized to match the tub, your showering area changes from very cramped to generous. For this kind of conversion, it is often recommended that a new shower surround be installed to go with the new base.

Since the surround is durable and completely waterproof, there will be no grout joints to clean or repair.

Safety features are a smart addition

To complete any tub to shower conversion, it's worth adding in a few extras that will enhance safety, convenience, and your overall enjoyment of this transformed space. Adding grab bars in your new shower space will make it safer and more user friendly for people of all ages.

When we convert your bathtub to a shower, we will also update the valve to a new, safer temperature control valve. The valve and its temperature control handle will be located at a convenient height on the shower wall.

Finally, don't forget to upgrade to a full-featured showerhead that's sure to please all who use it.
