How Does Replacing a Bath With a Shower Affect Home Value?

How Do Tub Conversions Affect Home ValueA tub-to-shower conversion is one of the most common types of bathroom remodeling projects. There are many reasons why a homeowner would want to replace a bath with a shower. It may be a simple matter of personal preference: They prefer a quick shower over a long soak in a tub. Or, it could be a bathroom safety issue: They are growing older and looking for a way to make bathing safer. Replacing the high basin wall of a traditional tub with a low-threshold shower will do exactly that. But, as with any home remodeling project, the question about its effect on overall home value inevitably arises. So, will replacing a bath with a shower raise or lower home value?

According to the National Association of Realtors, there is no clear evidence of a tub-to-shower conversion negatively or positively affecting home value. However, that same association also advises to leave at least one bathroom in a home with a functioning bathtub if you intend to sell in the future. While a conversion may not affect the value of a home, potential buyers can be turned off if there are no bathtubs in the home at all. For instance, families with young children will likely be looking for a bathroom where they can easily bathe the kids.

Should You Convert a Tub in Your Bathroom?

If you’re not planning on selling your home and a conversion makes sense for your bathing needs, then a tub-to-shower conversion may be the right remodel for you, and that’s particularly true if you’re looking for a way to bathe more safely and independently at your home.

Based in Avon and serving nearby cities in Connecticut and western Massachusetts, CareFree Home Pros offers exceptional bathroom remodeling services, including tub-to-shower conversions, for our valued customers.

"Safety first! I am extremely happy with the work that Carefree Home Pros did for me. They were really terrific when it came to clean up. I was concerned because this is my only bathroom and they were incredibly considerate and quick. I have a great walk in shower now with grab bars. The fold down chair is here for when I need it down the road. I am loving the installation!"

"We really like the people that came out to help us, the representative and the installer. Both were very professional and very friendly and thorough. We had our tub replaced and a new shower stall put in, including shower head, faucet and towel rack. Shower curtain rod bar and safety bars put in as well. No mess, one day-amazing."
