Tub to Shower Conversion Service in Des Moines

Tub to Shower Conversion in Des Moines, IA

Many people are interested in converting a bathtub into a shower, and for good reason. While many newer homes are built with showers instead of (or in addition to) bathtubs, older homes often have bathrooms with tubs that double as showers. Since most people take more showers than baths, there’s no need for bathtubs in every bathroom in your home.

Statistics show that converting a bathtub to a shower could help prevent serious accidents. In the U.S., over 25,000 accidents occur in and around bathtubs every year. Many of these mishaps occur as older people try to step over the high front apron or wall of the tub. However, a bathtub-to-shower conversion eliminates tripping and falling hazards since you can walk right into the shower without getting tripped up.

If you are interested in converting from a tub to a walk-in shower, Central Iowa Home Renovations can help. We can transform your bathroom into a safer, more comfortable space that allows you easier use. Contact us today at 515-320-8985 to get a free estimate!

Shower Safety Features are a Smart Addition

To complete any tub to shower conversion, it’s worth adding in a few extra upgrades that will enhance safety, convenience, and your overall enjoyment of this transformed space. Adding grab bars in your new shower will make it safer and more user-friendly for people of all ages.
It’s also a good idea to install a new mixing valve for the shower. The valve and its temperature control handle can be located at a convenient height on the shower wall. We always install a newer and safer temperature control valve when installing a new shower. Finally, don’t forget to upgrade to a full-featured showerhead.
