While it’s true that there are not many things more relaxing than soaking in a hot bath, every homeowner should consider whether or not a shower makes more sense for them than a bathtub. Here are three considerations that can help you determine if a shower is the right choice for you:
You Don’t Have Time For Baths
In today’s hurried lifestyle, few people have the time to even wait for their bathtubs to fill up, much less actually bathe themselves. If you always find yourself pressed for time, a tub to shower conversion probably makes more sense. That way you can get in, wash quickly, and get out, rather than waiting for your bathtub to fill up, testing the water, and soaking in.
You Want to Add Home Value
As previously mentioned, few homeowners have the time or any reason to take baths over showers. As such, a shower installation is more appealing to many homebuyers and increases a given home’s value. Compared to other components of your bathroom, a shower installation is also a relatively low investment. Glass-walled rainfall showers are particularly appealing nowadays to homebuyers, who enjoy their contemporary and elegant look. Best of all, these showers are still every bit as practical as a standing showerhead, if not more so.
Your Bath is Becoming a Liability
Regardless of one’s age, tripping over a bathtub’s ledge is a danger for any homeowner, and can result in serious injury, paralysis, or even death. Shower conversions can be built with bases that have ledges just high enough to keep water from getting out, removing much of the danger to the user. You can also outfit your new shower with a bench, no-slip liner, or grab bar for added protection.

It may be tempting to build your new bathroom with enough upscale amenities to rival a five-star hotel suite, but you should never let this spending get out of control. A bathroom should be just as functional as it is luxurious, or it could become an inconvenience for everybody in the house. Read on to learn more:
Pick the Right Surfaces
Surface materials are the perfect place to start when you are trying to balance functionality with luxury. For example, there are few bathroom materials more attractive than polished marble, but looks cannot be the only consideration in this decision. Polished marble has almost no slip resistance, meaning that any water spilled on the floor will make it as slick as black ice. Even worse, the shininess of polished marble masks the water that may be on it, adding further danger. Materials such as ceramic, natural marble, and mosaic tiles are much more slip resistant than polished marble, but still every bit as beautiful. The same consideration should be made in terms of a surface’s durability and water resistance.
Choose Lighting Carefully
Many homeowners choose to install fluorescent lighting for their bath remodels for its soft blue tones. Yet what many fail to take into account is the fact that the color can clash with other shades in their bathrooms and cast unpleasant glows. For example, a fluorescent light in a yellow-walled bathroom will blend with the light coming off the walls and make anyone who looks in the mirror appear to have green skin. Your lighting should contribute to your ideal ambience without clashing with any other components of the room.
