What to Expect From Shower and Bathtub Conversions
Shower and bathtub conversions are a great way to give your bathroom a makeover and add value to your home. If you’re considering a do it yourself project, there are some very important things to consider. First of all, what will you be changing? Is it the shower, bath, or both? Second, how complicated will the project be?
Changing your shower or bathtub can be a very difficult task for the amateur do it yourselfer. The reason is simple: the plumbing system in your bathroom is probably not set up to handle the extra weight. Adding a shower or even just rearranging the pipes is an extremely complex project. There are also many complications that come along with having to completely gut out and replace your old tub and shower. For example, if you were to take out the shower and bathtub, you would probably have to tear out all of the plumbing, including the electrical and the water supply.
On top of that, changing a shower or bathtub normally takes at least a few weeks to get the job done. If you are going to hire bathroom remodeling specialists to do the work for you, this could easily turn into months of preparation before you even begin. The good news is that there are a few different ways to convert your bathroom, so you won’t have to worry about spending all of your time and money on a project that is ultimately unnecessary. In addition to using a shower and bathtub conversion kit to convert the shower and tub, you can also use your own do-it-yourself hardware.
When you think of a traditional shower, most people picture a shower head on a tub with a curtain to hold it back. This has always been the standard for most showers, but with the modern materials and designs available today, you can change the look of your shower dramatically. If you want to try a low profile shower or one that offers more privacy, you can install a frameless shower door. You can also get a shower with a steam kit instead of a regular hot tub to give you the option of a steam shower without having to buy one. These changes will help you move your shower head closer to the floor or even towards the wall, which will make your bathroom more open and less claustrophobic.
In addition to the type of shower and tub you get, you can also get a bath remodel that uses only new fixtures. In the case of a full bathroom remodel, you may want to get a new shower head, and tub, as well as the faucet, soap dispenser, tiles, and everything else that goes along with it. A general bath remodel will typically include the shower head, the faucet, tile, soap dispenser, and everything else that goes along with it. You can use a bathroom remodeling company like Bath Planet or an individual to complete this type of remodel, so talk to a contractor in your area for more information.
Shower and bathtub conversions do not have to be complicated. If you have bathroom plumbing knowledge and experience, you can probably do most of the work yourself. However, a licensed bathroom professional will be able to make sure that your new shower and tub functions correctly. It is better to spend a little more money on a bathtub that functions properly than to spend money on a shower that doesn’t.
