Getting the exact measurements of the bathroom is absolutely vital for shower to bath tub remodel project. Most tubs are 60 inches wide, which is a optimal width for a shower. A depth is the kicker. You want to also aim for at least 32-34in., from the finished tile wall to the future glass shower door.
Tile Removal Process During Shower to Tub Remodel
You may consider removing or replacing your old tiles in your shower during remodel process. Odds are, you as of now have a shower set up (if not, you have to consider shower establishment costs). In this manner, in case you’re switching up your tile, you’ll need to expel your current tile. Tile removal isn’t as demanding as tile installation. Moreover, you must be mindful so as not to harm the drywall or any studs behind the shower. On the off chance that you do, your costs just went up.
Can You Put a Bathtub in Your Shower?
Putting your bathtub in the shower may be an unusually idea, but in recent years there has been a growing trend in bathroom design. A typical shower’s glass door and fixed panels can cost up to $2,000. A built-in tub in your shower is easier to install than a freestanding one. Make sure your walls are waterproofed up to a height of 6 feet in your shower and tub area’s primary wet zone. Also note, waterproof the walls at least 18 inches above the tub lip in a bathtub without a shower-head.
