Tub to Stall Shower Conversions:
Many bathroom accidents occur in and around bathtubs. A tub/shower conversion simply involves removing the bathtub and installing in its place a walk-in stall shower or possibly a wheelchair accessible shower. Some showers may have seats and all showers should have grab bars.
Below are some examples of how some of our customers have solved their situations. Most existing bathtubs are 60" long x 30" or 32" deep (front to back). These pictures all show 60" long x 30" or 32" deep shower bases (former bathtubs). Keep in mind that some of these bathrooms don't have the shower doors installed yet or are not painted or finished decorating yet. Also, when looking at these pictures for ideas, keep in mind the size of your available space.
