Bath to Shower Conversions

Converting a bath to a shower can be more practical for several reasons. It saves space, making small bathrooms feel more open and accessible. Showers are easier to clean and maintain, reducing upkeep efforts. For those with limited mobility or elderly individuals, a shower provides safer and more convenient access, minimizing the risk of slips and falls associated with stepping over a bathtub's high sides.


Additionally, showers are generally more water-efficient, contributing to eco-friendly living and lowering water bills. The versatility of shower designs allows for customisation to suit various preferences and mobility needs, making it a practical choice for many homeowners.

 Reasons to Convert a Bath to a Shower 
  • Enhanced Safety for Elderly: Showers offer step-free access, reducing the risk of slips and falls, which is critical for elderly individuals with limited mobility.

  • Accessibility and Independence: Showers can be equipped with grab bars, seating options, and handheld showerheads, promoting independence and ensuring a more user-friendly bathing experience for the elderly.

  • Space Optimisation: Converting to a shower opens up floor space, making the bathroom more maneuverable and accessible for elderly users, especially those with mobility aids.

  • Water Conservation: Showers typically use less water than baths, contributing to water conservation efforts and reducing environmental impact.

  • Easier Cleaning and Maintenance: Showers are easier to clean and maintain, requiring less effort and time, which is beneficial for elderly individuals who may have difficulty with strenuous cleaning tasks.

  • Therapeutic Benefits: Showers with adjustable features like massaging showerheads can offer therapeutic benefits for elderly users, providing relief for sore muscles and promoting relaxation.

  • Future-Proofing: Installing a walk-in or "curbless" shower with universal design principles ensures that the bathroom remains suitable as the elderly individual's mobility needs change over time.

  • Energy Efficiency: In areas with hot water heaters, showers consume less hot water than baths, leading to energy savings and reduced utility costs, benefitting both the environment and elderly individuals on fixed incomes.
