At Water Works Renovations, our Craftsmen have more than 30 years of bathroom remodeling experience. Because of this, we understand how to execute a tub to shower conversion that increases the functionality of your bathroom as well as your home’s resale value.
Here’s our tub to shower conversion process step by step:
- Consultations and Design
- Plumbing and Electrical Work
Step 1: Consultations and Design
Before we hammer a single nail, we’ll meet with you at our full-service showroom in Houston, Texas. During this initial consultation, our design consultants will learn more about the vision you have for your master en suite or guest bath.
Step 2: Demolition
After signing your contract, our remodeling crew will arrive onsite within 3 to 5 days. Before they can install your shower, they will remove the bathtub as well as some of the surrounding tile and drywall.
Step 3: Plumbing and Electrical Work
Depending on your bathroom design, Water Works Renovations may complete plumbing and electrical work. Building professionals may also need to modify your floor to ensure the shower pan sits level.
Step 4: Walk-In Shower Installation
Lastly, we will install your walk-in shower. During this phase, we’ll conduct a series of quality checks and look carefully for leaks so that you can enjoy your new bathroom for years to come.
Types of Tub to Shower Conversions
A tub to shower conversion can add practicality and beauty to your bathroom.
However, with so many tub to shower conversion variations, choosing the right design is easier said than done. To help you reimagine your dark and dingy en suite, we’ve created a list of the most popular types of tub to shower conversions:
- Tub to Corner Shower
- Tub to Shower Room
- Tub to Curved Shower
- Tub to Rain Shower
Tub to Corner Shower
If your bath is cramped, consider a tub to corner shower conversion. Though this design choice will require reconfiguring your bathroom, it’ll save tons of floor space
Tub to Shower Room
If you want to make a statement in your master en suite, opt for a shower room. These showers don’t have a curtain or glass panel. Instead, they are open to the rest of the bathroom.
Tub to Curved Shower
A curved shower is truly glamorous, adding a dimension of whimsy to your downstairs bath. This option is great for awkward bathroom configurations and minimalistic aesthetics.
Tub to Rain Shower
Do you want to relax after a long day? If so, outfit your new bathroom with a rain shower. Compared to traditional showers, rain showers provide fuller coverage for bathing as well as a steadier water flow.
Custom Bathtub to Shower Conversions
Do you love the simplicity of a shower room but want the luxury of a rain shower? If so, Water Works Renovations is here to help.
We don’t believe in offering cookie-cutter renovation solutions. That’s why our design consultants and Craftsmen work hand-in-hand to create custom bathtub to shower conversions to suit your wants and needs.
Tub to Shower Conversion Cost
At Water Works, we understand that any home addition is a considerable investment. That’s why we offer all clients a firm cost estimate.
Typically, the cost of a tub to shower conversion depends on factors such as:
- The type of materials
- The type of shower
- If the remodel involves floor plan modifications
However, most tub to shower conversions costs start at $10,000. The cost can build up based on the scope of work, and how much of the reconstruction of the current bathroom needs to be done.
