A tub to shower conversion makes your bathroom more usable, especially as you age. A shower is more accessible, easier to keep clean and actually uses less water. And if you’re thinking about selling your home any time soon, it’s a good move. The American Institute of Architects annual Home Design Trends Survey found that more than 60% of homeowners preferred a stall shower without a tub in 2013. Compare that to 49% in 2012, the first year they specifically surveyed about tub-less bathrooms.
