    The Pros of Installing a Bathtub-Shower Combo

    Is a bathroom remodeling project in your near future? If you’re designing a new bathroom space, you’ve likely noticed there are plenty of bath and shower products available. A popular product that today’s homeowners still enjoy is the walk-in tub with shower combo. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits a bathtub-shower combo offers for all types of households.


    It’s no secret that bathroom remodeling projects are pricey. So, why wouldn’t you look for ways to trim your project’s budget? A tub-shower combo saves you money in a variety of ways. First, easy installation means there’s fewer labor hours you need to worry about. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about installing additional drains and pipes to support a freestanding shower stall and a tub. For homeowners interested in keeping their bathroom remodeling costs in check, this combo does the job.

    Great for All Spaces

    Many homes are tight on space. If you have a small hallway bathroom, the bathtub-shower combo is ideal. Small spaces don’t have the square footage to make room for a separate shower and tub. With the bath and shower combo, you don’t have to worry about cramming everything into one space or opening up walls to make the room. It’s the perfect fit for those small bathroom spaces.


    You might be leery of installing a combo unit because you don’t want a cheap, acrylic look. The good news is that these combos are highly customizable. They come in a variety of styles and colors to suit your preferences. Additionally, they also come with features that allow the product to meet your needs. For example, do you want a tub-shower combo with multiple showerheads? Maybe you want built-in storage for your personal care items. These are examples of customizable features found in many combo products. You don’t have to settle for the basics. Instead, expect more from your bathtub-shower combo.

    Easier to Clean

    The majority of bathtub-shower combinations are manufactured as a single, solid piece. One of the greatest advantages of this design is that it cuts down on mold buildup and makes it easier to clean. The customizable, high-quality acrylic that’s used to produce these combo pieces is wiped down easily. You don’t have to worry about spending extra time scrubbing grout lines. Fewer maintenance needs is always a plus for busy homeowners who don’t have time to deal with cleaning various nooks and crannies.

    Increased Home Value

    Why are you renovating your bathroom? Is it because you want a nicer space or are you planning on selling your home shortly? No matter what your reasons are for updating your bathroom, the choices you make should add value to your home. A two-piece combo certainly adds value to your home. It’s a bathroom fixture that’s timeless and always appealing to homebuyers of all ages.

    Are you ready to take the next step and start the installation process for a shower-tub  combination? If so, make sure you do your homework and choose professionals to assist with the purchase and installation of this product. Professional installation ensures the tub and shower won’t leak and that you’ll get many years of uninterrupted use from it.
