When youʼre looking into remodeling projects that boost your homeʼs value, bathroom renovations are among the top choices. With a mid-range bathroom remodel, for example, you can expect to recoup up to 62% of the cost when you sell your home. In terms of specific bathtub remodel projects, a tub to shower conversion is a great option for several reasons.
Hard to Clean
Older products used for bathtubs are more difficult to keep clean on a regular basis. These products and materials have a higher risk of mold growth, especially if there are any cracks or gaps in the tub, walls, or seals. Mold growth can cause health problems in some individuals, so itʼs important to reduce these risks.
A bathroom renovation that involves converting a tub to a shower can make cleaning easier. In addition to having newer materials to clean rather than older ones, youʼll have a lower risk of developing gaps or cracks that allow bacteria and mold to grow and thrive. At Matrix Home Solutions, we use Microban-infused acrylic, which provides protection from bacteria, mold, and mildew.
With Microban in your bathroom instead of older materials, youʼll have a lower risk of dealing with these harmful microbes while also being able to spend less time cleaning and maintaining your shower overall.
When you have a tub and shower combination or just a bathtub rather than a shower only, you might not realize how much of a hazard it is. Stepping into or out of a bathtub can increase your risk of slipping and falling, which could lead to serious injuries.
Whether youʼre getting into a slippery tub or stepping onto a wet floor, you face the risk of accidentally losing your footing.
A tub to shower conversion can reduce the risk of slips and falls in your bathroom by making it easier to get in and out of your shower. Instead of having to step over the lip of a tub to get in or out, you have a lower clearance with a shower only. Getting in and out of a shower means youʼre only having to take a small step over a low lip, which can significantly reduce the risk of slipping and falling.
If your bathroom hasnʼt been remodeled in awhile, it might have an outdated look. While this might not seem like a big deal, youʼll find that it could affect the value of your home when you put it on the market. An updated look with a tub to shower conversion can do wonders for the overall appearance of your bathroom while also improving your homeʼs value.
At Matrix Home Solutions, we have a wide range of shower styles available with many tile colors and designs to choose from. Whether youʼre looking for a classic look with white or light-colored tile or an elegant look with stylish gray or blue tiles, you can count on having several tones to consider. Our experts can help you find the ideal tile design and color for your new tub.
Some bathtub remodel projects take up a lot of time, which can be an inconvenience for you. When youʼre having your tub converted to a shower, you donʼt have to worry about having workers in your home for a long period of time. In fact, some of these installations can be done in just one day. This makes this type of remodeling project a good one to choose when you want a short turnaround time.
Matrix Home Solutions offers same day installations for some bathroom remodeling projects. The amount of time your project takes if youʼre having your tub changed to a shower will depend on certain factors, such as the current setup of your tub and the amount of labor involved. In general, you can expect this kind of remodeling project to have a shorter timeframe compared to more complex bathroom renovations.
