▷Pro Tips For Bath To Shower Conversions In San Diego
If you live in San Diego, your apartment was probably built several decades ago, when bathtubs were the norm and showers in every bathroom were uncommon. The majority of city dwellers do not have the leisure to soak in a tub every day. As a result, a majority of people are considering removing bathtubs entirely from their houses in order to increase bathroom space and efficiency. We’ve compiled a list of some of our team’s most useful tips for converting a bathtub to a shower.
Beginning A Bathtub To Shower Conversion
The removal of the tub, the installation of tile and pipe, new hardware, and the creation of a complete shower are all part of the bath to shower conversion procedure.
It’s a good idea to hire a professional contractor and design team to help you avoid stress and guarantee you follow local building codes.
Consider Shower Door Options
One of the first things to think about is how your new shower door will work. You’ll want to make sure the door can fully open without hitting your vanity, toilet, or wall cabinets. Installing a shower door isn’t the only option. You can install a partial wall or a shower enclosure, which comes in a variety of styles. This way is a little more expensive than a standard shower curtain rod, but it’s worth it in the end for better water retention.
Practical Floor Design Decisions
You can finish the flooring of your freshly converted shower in one of two ways. The simplest and most practical way to keep the water inside the room is to use a shower pan with a curb. Installing a shower without a curb necessitates additional creativity. A contractor will install new flooring that drains slightly inward and away from the shower entrance.
Shower Conversion “Dont’s”
While it may make for a more difficult restoration process, many experts advise against building a shower around a window. If you want to convert a window above the tub, either move the shower away from the window or totally fill it in. The idea of a windowed shower is appealing, but you risk collecting water droplets inside the walls, which can lead to mold growth.
It’s also crucial to consider your home’s future and keep an eye on the broader picture. If you plan to sell your home at some point, it’s true that properties without bathtubs have a more difficult time selling. So, if you only have one bathroom, think about remodeling your current shower/tub combination.
