Your home is likely your biggest asset, and remodeling your bathroom is an excellent investment to protect and enhance its value. If you're considering a bathtub-to-shower conversion, it's essential to weigh the pros and cons to make the best decision for your home and lifestyle.

First, let's take a look at the pros and cons of showers:

Pros of Showers:

  • Showers generally use less water than bathtubs.
  • Showers are easily accessible, and adding a shower bench is convenient.
  • Large, luxurious showers can increase property value.
  • Showers take up less space than bathtubs.
  • Modern shower designs offer features like steam options, enhancing the spa-like experience.
  • Showers can be designed with frameless doors for a sleek, modern look.

Cons of Showers:

  • Shower doors require space to swing open, which can be limiting in small bathrooms.
  • Not having at least one bathtub in your home may lower resale value.

Now, let's have a look at the pluses and minuses of bathtubs:

Pros of Bathtubs:

  • They provide a space for soaking tired muscles, which is beneficial for relaxation and health.
  • Bathtubs can be modified to provide air baths, walk-in access, or whirlpool features.
  • Bathtubs offer endless design options; they can be recessed or deck-mounted.
  • Tubs are great for families with young children, providing a safe and convenient bathing option.
  • Tubs can be ideal for pets, making it easier to bathe them at home.

Cons of Bathtubs:

  • Bathtubs are harder to enter and exit, especially for those with mobility issues.
  • Most people prefer showers for daily use.
  • Bathtubs require a water heater capable of filling a large tub with hot water.
  • They use a significant amount of space in the bathroom.

    Hair, dirt, mineral buildup, soap, and even small toys can block shower and bathtub drains. If you can’t remove the clog manually or with a vinegar-and-baking-soda solution, it’s time to call a professional plumber. Attempting to use supermarket plumbing snakes can worsen the situation and damage your porcelain fixtures. Chemical drain cleaners often fail to work as advertised and can exacerbate the problem.


    Visible leaks are easier to spot, but hidden leaks can cause significant structural damage over time. If your water bill suddenly spikes for no apparent reason, it’s crucial to contact a plumber immediately to investigate and resolve the issue.

    Water Pressure

    Low water pressure can be due to an issue with your shower head or faucet. However, it could also indicate buildup in the pipes or a broken line allowing dirt and silt to block your plumbing. A professional plumber can determine the cause and recommend appropriate solutions.

    Noises & Bad Odors

    Thumps or rattling sounds from your plumbing indicate that something is loose. Addressing these noises promptly can prevent further damage and costly repairs. Bad smells emanating from your bathtub or shower drain suggest a problem, such as a clog or mold. If a vinegar-and-baking-soda solution doesn’t eliminate the odor, or if you smell sewer gas, contact a plumber to diagnose and fix the issue.

    Water Temperature Fluctuations

    Experiencing sudden changes in water temperature while showering, especially when other water fixtures are used simultaneously, is not something you should tolerate. Upgrading to a high-efficiency toilet or installing a thermostatic mixing valve can resolve this problem.


    Maintenance Plans

    Regular maintenance is crucial to keeping your HVAC systems working efficiently and safely. When you sign up for our Sunset Service Plan, not only do you get an annual inspection and tune-up of your system, but you also have the added benefit of working with a team that knows your unit’s repair and maintenance history.

    • 15% off any additional services or repairs
    • Peace of mind knowing that your HVAC system is in good hands.
