Questions to Ask Before Converting Your Bathtub to a Shower

Posted on December 12, 2015

Bathtub to a Shower

The concept of a bathroom without a tub is steadily growing in popularity. This has led many homeowners to convert their unused bathtubs into more elaborate, visually appealing showers. Although this may seem like an attractive prospect to many people, there are several things to consider you before taking the final leap of faith. If you are considering a tub to shower conversion in Chicago, here are some basic questions to ask.

Is Relocation Necessary?

One of the main things to consider before a conversion is whether or not you will have to relocate your shower. Relocations are oftentimes done to increase functionality or aesthetics. Whatever your reason may be, you want to factor in the location of your water supply and drain lines before planning the conversion. By keeping your new shower close to existing plumbing, you can reduce the overall cost of your project, and avoid having making costly mistakes.

Will the New Shower Fit?

Before you start your tub to shower conversion in Chicago, you should consider the dimensions of your bathroom. Are your ceilings tall enough? How far away is the toilet? These are straightforward questions that can help you better understand the dimensions of your bathroom, and whether or not it will accommodate a shower and stall.

What Type of Curb Do I Need?

The shower curb, or pan, as it is called by some people, contains excess water and prevents it from splashing onto other parts of the bathroom. A shower pan with a curb is slightly cheaper, and it operates by channeling water into a drain. A shower pan without a curb is more expensive, and may require you to raise the floor.

In summary, these are simple, yet highly relevant questions to ask yourself before embarking on a conversion project. Don’t begin your tub to shower conversion in Chicago unprepared. Once you answer these questions, your install will go a lot smoother than you ever imagined.
