Custom Tub Shower Conversions In Austin
In general, smaller bathroom sizes are dictated in some respect by the length of the tub which in most cases is four to six feet long with five feet being the common dimension. This is evidenced by a tub that has been installed opposite or adjacent to the entry to the bathroom producing a wall to wall tub situation. In this configuration the toilet and vanity are generally placed on one of the walls that are perpendicular to the length of the tub or the tub can be installed on an opposite wall where the toilet and vanity line up. The tub is a great starting point to gain space for a larger custom walk in shower replacing the tub you never use. If you are fortunate enough to have wall lengths exceeding the five or six feet norm then space is not an issue and you can proceed with ease. Just choose your finishes wisely and keep all choices for your new shower within your budget. Bathtubs are good for soaking, but how often do you actually use them?

Most designers and builders do not recommend eliminating the only tub in the home for resale value considerations. Young families need the tub for bathing their young children.

All new construction or any bath transformation should involve multiple shower head combinations in multiple locations to fit anyone's desires. Rain heads coming out of the ceiling, body heads coming out of the walls in many locations, or hand held units attached to the shower walls can make things very interesting. These combinations of heads and locations can be used to create rain effects, provide relief for muscle aches through body massages, or simply provide pin point convenience with hand held variable heads.
