If you’re thinking of converting your bathtub to a shower, you’re not alone. The American Institute of Architects Home Design Trends Survey found that more than 60 percent of homeowners preferred a tub-less bathroom. But why are more and more Americans opting for showers instead of tubs? Here are just a few of the reasons
Better Accessibility and Safety
Especially for people who have limited mobility or are older, climbing into a tub can be incredibly dangerous. Walk-in showers allow you to do just that: walk in!
More Style Options
When it comes to choosing a bathtub, your only option is usually just plain white. With numerous framing and glass options, there are many more styles available when you choose a standing shower.
Easy to Clean
Showers are typically easier for homeowners to clean because they don’t require you to bend over. They also don’t have any cracks or crevices for water to hide. This makes them more resistant to mold and mildew.
The Appearance of a Larger Bathroom
When compared to a bathtub, a standing glass shower will make a bathroom look larger than it is because the light will reflect off the glass doors.
Unlike curtains, which will have to be replaced every few months, the same shower doors will last for years.
