Is Converting Your Tub Into a Walk-In Shower Worth It?

Most mobile homes have full bathtubs, but some homeowners prefer to remodel their bathroom and upgrade to a shower stall. Here are a few things to consider if you’re wondering about converting your tub into a walk-in shower.

Modernized Look

A significant advantage of a walk-in shower is that it provides your home with a sleeker, more modern look that’s more aesthetically pleasing. Walk-in showers have a lot of options regarding surroundings, covers, and faucets. In addition, many walk-in showers have built-in seats, which may benefit people with mobility support needs.

General Size

When people wonder if converting their tub into a walk-in shower is worth it, they often consider the size. A walk-in shower comes in many size options and may take up more space than a traditional shower stall. The most considerable advantage of converting from a tub to a shower is the additional storage space in your bathroom, but a walk-in shower may not provide that advantage.

Potential Disadvantages

Walk-in showers may be great for some mobile homeowners, but you should consider a few things before planning a renovation. Upgrading from a bathtub to a walk-in shower doesn't do much to increase the value of your mobile home and may exclude people who are looking for a home with a bathtub. Tubs are popular with families since young children may prefer a bath over a shower.

If your mobile home has more than one bathroom, upgrading one to a walk-in shower and keeping the other as a bathtub for soaking is usually a good idea. If you live in an area with regular natural disasters, like hurricanes or tornadoes that may cut off your utility supply, having a bathtub to fill with potable water may prove beneficial.
