Our team at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths completed this bathtub to shower conversion to Wauwatosa, WI. It was an older style home with the original bathtub, and the Wauwatosa homeowners were looking to modernize and improve the function.
They called on TightSeal Exteriors for the bathtub-to-shower conversion. Check out the results below!
The old bathtub was 1956, the time the home was built. The bathtub was small and the fixtures were functioning poorly. Often times homeowners who live in an older home opt for a bathtub to shower conversion. We see that the bathtubs original to the home look very beat up and discolored. Many times bathtubs are degraded from mold and mildew or are chipping. In this case the bathtub was losing its enamel coating.
The Wauwatosa homeowner decided they were going to go with a bathtub to shower conversion. This is an excellent option for those who want to make their bathroom space appear larger. By removing the old bathtub and opting for a bathtub to shower conversion, the bathroom will look more open and spacious. This is a common reason why people in older, smaller homes opt for a bathtub to shower conversion.
Our team at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths plan to remove the old bathtub and replace it with a walk-in shower. The walk-in shower is handicap accessible and makes the space appear much larger. The homeowners will no longer have to step over the ledge in the bathtub in order to get in. Their new handheld shower head has excellent water pressure and no longer leaks.
We also added in corner bench seating so the homeowner can sit comfortably in their shower. We updated all the grab bars and also put in a handy corner caddy. This will hold all the shampoos, soaps and body washes. There is a lot more room now in the bathroom following this bathtub to shower conversion.
As you can see, this new bathtub is more modernized, accessible, and creates much more space for ease of use. And as you can see, the homeowners are thrilled with their new shower!
