What to Expect During Your Tub-to-Shower Conversion
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.
There are a litany of benefits that a tub-to-shower conversion will bring to you immediately. The first step to realizing those benefits is to align your expectations for this home improvement project with reality. The process will usually follow standard steps that have been perfected by Toledo New Bath and Kitchen professionals:

The following are some of the choices that will make your conversion unique:
Material - There are a plethora of great options including whether or not you want granite, quartz or even recycled glass for the shower wall and floor.
Tile - You will have the option to add mosaic tiling to the floor, inlays or any other areas.
Drain type - The circular option is the most common but you could choose linear as well which bring other considerations into play.
