Bathroom Remodel Blog
One of the most overlooked areas of a home that can be upgraded immediately to increase the value and appeal of your house is converting a bathtub into a shower. A bathtub takes up quite a bit of space and can be a jarring, grimy detachment from the bathroom floor which also detracts from the overall aesthetic. The key, when going from a tub to a shower, is to make sure that you are thinking about having everything that you need for support, comfort, and convenience in the future. Our professionals and Toledo New Bath and Kitchen will help guide you through the areas to think about when making the decision to complete this conversion.more
