Why Seniors Should Convert Their Tub to a Shower

Why Seniors Should Convert Their Tub to a Shower  

Investing in a tub-to-shower conversion is a smart move, especially for seniors who are looking to maintain their independence and minimize their risk of trip and fall accidents. That’s because traditional tubs require you to step over a threshold, which increases the likelihood of stumbling and injuries.

No-threshold showers, on the other hand, offer the ultimate in accessibility. Without a curb or barrier to step over, entering and exiting the shower becomes effortless. This type of shower—often referred to as a roll-in shower—is also ideal for individuals who use walkers or wheelchairs. And because there is no curb to maneuver around, installing or removing a shower seat is simple.

The value of having your tub converted to a shower simply can’t be underestimated. Even if you don’t require the additional safety and accessibility features just yet, it’s a fantastic investment that will be appreciated by guests and allow you to comfortably age within your home. A few benefits of a BathWraps tub-to-shower conversion include:

  • Making the most out of a small space while saving you from expensive full bathroom remodel costs
  • Customizable style options, so you can select the color and tile choices that fit your bathroom best
  • Easier accessibility for walk-in or wheelchair access, depending on your needs
  • Minimized maintenance requirements thanks to our easy-to-clean acrylic surfaces, so you won’t need to worry about intensive scrubbing or cleaning

The best part? When you select professionals like BathWraps for the job, you can expect your conversion to be completed in as little as a day. That way, you won’t need to surrender the use of your bathroom for an extended period of time, and you can get to relaxing in your new space as soon as possible.
