The Benefits of Wet Area Bathroom Remodels

Installing a new bathtub can be an excellent wet area bathroom remodel.

If you want to upgrade your bathroom, remodeling the wet area is a great way to give your bathroom a new look. The wet area endures the most use out of any other area in your house, aside from your kitchen. You can remodel this space by incorporating minor makeovers and replacements or planning an extensive, full-scale overhaul. Common remodels can include walk-in showers, tub-to-shower conversions, and bathtub replacements. The professionals at T&G Builders can help you plan your future successful wet area bathroom remodel once you know which design is best for your home. Read on to discover the benefits of three primary wet area bathroom remodels. 

What Is the Wet Area of Your Bathroom? 

When the term “wet area” is used, it refers to the items in your bathroom that are exposed to water, such as the shower or bathtub. These items see daily water exposure and endure varying temperatures, which make them more prone to damage over the years. Wet area bathroom remodels can improve the functionality of this space by incorporating high-quality, waterproof materials like acrylic, stone, and porcelain. 

Walk-In Shower Installations

Converting a high-walled, step-in shower into a walk-in shower with waterproof flooring, no-barrier entry, no-slip flooring, and roll-in accessibility can be an excellent investment for your home. This shower offers the most convenience and safety to wheelchair users, the elderly, and anyone living with disabilities. You can consult with your remodeling company on how to customize your wet area bathroom remodel with accessibility and safety features for your specific needs. 

Tub-to-Shower Conversions

If your home has a tub, but you prefer showering to bathing, you may want to eliminate the tub in favor of a shower. A tub-to-shower conversion can also maximize the space in your bathroom and give your room a modern look. New shower enclosures can be custom-made with glass doors and waterproof tiles to create a striking new shower space. 

Bathtub Replacement

If your current bathtub is outdated or showing signs of wear, replacing your bathtub with a newer model can help improve the entire look of your bathroom. Bathtub replacements are more common for older homes, as the porcelain of the original tubs can become damaged and rusted. This is also one of the more affordable wet area bathroom remodels that can still make a significant impact on the look of your bathroom.
