5 Step Guidebook To Your Bathtub To Shower Fullerton CA Conversion Project
If you are planning to have your own bathroom renovation especially if your bathtub is not that maximized anymore, you can convert it into a shower. Doing this can give you a more modern feel at home, and more accessible for members of the family with mobility issues.
There is a do-it-yourself or DIY bathtub conversion that every homeowner can do but first, there are considerations that need to be understood. Try to have at least one bathtub in your house to preserve marketability (in case you plan to sell your home in the future).
If the type of tub you have at home is in an alcove, you can dispose of it and be left with a 34 inches deep and 5 feet wide space which is perfect for a shower. This will give you minor modifications, your water supply, and drain line will already be set up and that it will save you money on plumbing expenses.
In installing a shower, use shower stall kits. These are a fantastic low-cost option made to fit into corners and old bathtub alcoves. They usually cost $200 up to $2,000 depending on the specifications you want. You can also install a custom tile shower but more expensive as it costs around $1,000 to $3,500.
In this bathroom shower project, you will be needing plywood for floor protection, screwdriver, wrench or Allen wrench, putty knife and utility knife, drywall saw or reciprocating saw, pry bar, and jigsaw.
