It’s the eternal question when it comes to bathing. Are you a bathtub or a shower person?
Showers, as those that prefer them will tell you, offer unbeatable convenience and speed. For those that prefer tubbing, however,nothing beats the luxury of a long, soothing soak in a hot bath. So, what happens if you’re one of the many homeowners that have one, but prefer the other?
As remodeling experts at Bathrooms Plus, a leading remodeling company in South Florida, we help homeowners create more functional, useful, and beautiful bathrooms.One of our most popular remodeling projects is bath conversion—whether it’s switching your shower for a tub, or tub for a shower—a fast and affordable process designed to suit your lifestyle.
If you represent Team Bathtub and are longing to replace your existing shower area with a tub, you’re in the right place. In this guide, we’ll go over the many benefits of shower-to-tub conversion for homeowners,so that you can decide whether this bath remodeling process is right for you.
The Benefits of Bathtubs
While shower users may enjoy convenience and speed while bathing, bathtubs offer some important advantages that you might not be aware of, including:
- Stress-Relief and Comfort: When it comes to comparing showers and baths, it’s very hard to argue that showers are more relaxing. Nothing beats sinking into a warm bath after a long day and taking some time to soak and relax your body, mind, and soul.
- Great for Aches, Pains, and Skin: Dermatological studies have also shown that baths can be used to heal aches, pains, and certain skin issues. This is partly because you can mix ingredients into the bathwater, like Epsom salt for soothing aches and pains after a long day. Skin issues like eczema, sunburn, or dry skin can be treated with oatmeal, whole milk, honey, organic bath bombs, and more.
- Slow Down Aging: Studies have shown that warm baths can lower cortisone levels, which can help to slowdown aging and combat acne. Combined with the ingredients that can smooth and improve the health of your skin, this makes baths a great way for you to look fresh.
Choosing the Right Tub
Despite the many benefits, shower-to-tub bath conversion might still seem a chore if a tub requires more maintenance and upkeep than your current shower installation. That’s why it’s important to make sure that you choose the right tub that suits your individual needs and preferences.
As you can probably imagine, there are many kinds of bathtubs in a number of styles to choose from. Deciding on the right one will depend on your accessibility needs, design preferences, and your budget. You’ll also want to make sure the bathroom products you choose are made with high-quality materials and are easy-to-clean and maintain.
