The Bathtub BREAK-UP!

Tub to Shower Conversion

Many people have experienced the same disappointment when dealing with old bathrooms where a giant tub takes up too much space but is seldom used. Design trends show that demand has increased for walk-in showers in recent years. The younger generation simply prefer showers and older homeowners don’t want a tub to step into or out of.


The trend for home renovators is the tub-to-shower conversion. Today’s homeowners are increasingly choosing luxury walk-in showers for both style and convenience. The American Institute of Architects says that the tub-less bathroom is growing in popularity. Its annual Home Design Trends Survey found that more than 60% of homeowners preferred a stall shower without a tub. Conventional wisdom is changing as more homeowners want to live in their current home as they get older. Remodeling from a tub to a shower allows homeowners to use the existing space to create a design that fits their life.

Today’s remodeled shower can be truly luxurious, with options including his and her shower heads, body sprays, and or steam generators. They can open up your bathroom, creating a larger feel that is also easier to clean. Opening up the space also may allow more room for a larger vanity or other features that increase the beauty and practical use of the bathroom. One solution is to convert your old, worn out bathtub into a beautiful new shower, complete with new fixtures, walls and bases. Corbella Kitchen & Bath bathroom in Mandarin takes pride in the creating design ideas that fit your current needs by transforming old fixtures into stunning new bathrooms. A dream shower can often become a reality as Corbella’s design team has the ability to fit it inside the footprint of the outdated tub.
