There are many reasons to convert your old tub and shower combination into a walk-in shower. Whether your redesign is to turn an outdated bathroom into a spa-like retreat or to improve the functionality and value of a master bathroom, you will want to know the scope and cost of the work involved before jumping into this project. Just be sure you are not turning the only tub in your home into a walk-in shower. Homes that have at least one bathtub will always have more value over homes without, especially for families with children.
In this economy, it’s perfectly common for homeowners to take the DIY approach to remodeling in an effort to save a little cash. However, if you don’t plan the project well, it might end up costing more than you expected, or even more than hiring a professional remodeler would.
