Typical homes in the Indianapolis area come standard with a bathtub/shower combo in the master and guest bathroom. While this is ideal for families with young children, adults and grown children rarely fit comfortably in this type of setup. So, if your children are growing up and no longer taking baths, upgrading to a stand-alone shower might be beneficial to your family. Read on to learn of the benefits of going tub-less, brought to you by your friends at Indy Renovation.
Bathtubs are generally the largest feature in your bathroom, so if it’s not being used, it can feel like a waste of space. When you replace the tub with a stand-alone shower, you can create a much more open-feeling space. Not only will your bathroom feel larger, but you’ll also create more space in the shower itself. Instead of the bathtub/shower combo you’re used to, you can design a luxurious custom shower with all the features you’ve always dreamed of.
Plan for the Future
It’s never too early to start thinking about your future in your home. If you plan to stay in your home forever, now is a great time to make it a little more accessible and safe. Bathtub/shower combos, with their high slippery walls and lack of grab bars, are a slip and fall risk, especially as you age. When you eliminate the tub, you create a safer option for independent bathing. A walk-in shower with no high ledge to step over and plenty of grab bars will keep you from slipping and falling in the shower.
Easy to Clean
Finally, our favorite reason to get rid of the bathtub is to make your bathroom easier to clean. Bending over a bathtub to scour away soap scum is fun for no one and quite hard on the back. When you get rid of the tub and replace it with a shower, you can easily use a hand-held shower head to clean and rinse away all the grime.
