Take Away a Tub, Add a Shower

Posted on June 29, 2015

bathroom remodeling

A nice bubble bath can be a relaxing experience, but with the hustle and bustle of modern life, a shower is quicker and more efficient. You may not always have time to take a bath, so having the option to take a speedy rinse might be the best way to go as you remodel your bathroom. Before you start tub to shower conversions in your home, here are a few things to consider.

DIY Versus the Professional

Is this a DIY job? Unless you have a wealth of bathroom remodeling experience, this is a job best left to a professional. Depending on what you want, you may need to reroute plumbing, lay tile or install a floor heating system. The process can get complicated so, if you’ve never done tub to shower conversions, hire a seasoned contractor.

Rip Out the Tub

There are two main options for tub to shower renovations. The first is to rip out the tub entirely and replace it with a shower unit. For this, you or your contractor will have to lay tile or appropriate flooring where the tub once stood. You will need to make sure there is enough room for your door of choice to open or you can use a partial glass panel.


If you still want to be able to use you tub, retrofitting is the way to go. This option will still allow you to make use of your tub while also giving you the choice to take a quick shower instead. Typically, this method is less invasive though you will need to add plumbing for the showerhead. Additionally, all plumbing must remain up to code.

Tub to shower conversions are not overly complicated, but they often require the help of a professional to complete. You can keep the tub or do away with it entirely depending on your wants and needs. Regardless of the design you choose, have fun upgrading and customizing your space.
