Everything you need to know about tub-to-shower conversion

Are you tired of taking a bath in your bathtub every day, or have your kids outgrown their existing bathtub? A tub-to-shower conversion is a simple and cost-effective solution to transform your old bathtub into a walk-in shower. 

With NOMI’s expert team, you can have bathroom remodeling completed in just a few days!

What is a tub-to-shower conversion?

A tub to shower conversion is a process of removing your existing bathtub and replacing it with a shower.

This can involve removing the tub, modifying the plumbing, and installing the shower floor, shower wall surround, shower door and fixtures. The result is a more spacious and modern shower area, which can enhance the functionality and style of your bathroom.

Why convert your tub to a walk-in shower?

There are several reasons why homeowners opt for a tub-to-shower conversion:


If you have mobility issues or aging-in-place concerns, a walk-in shower can be a safer and more accessible option than a bathtub. You can install grab bars, non-slip flooring, glass doors, and other features to improve the safety and comfort of your shower.


Showers are generally faster and easier to use than baths. They require less water, take up less space, have a shower door to keep the water from splashing, and don’t require as much cleaning or maintenance.


A walk-in shower can give your bathroom a fresh and modern look. You can choose from various designs, colors, shower fixtures, and materials to create a custom shower that matches your taste and decor.

Resale value

Converting your old tub to a shower can increase the resale value of your home. Many homebuyers prefer showers over bathtubs, especially in smaller bathrooms or homes with limited space.

Shower stall vs. Tiled shower

Shower stall

A shower stall, also known as a shower enclosure or shower cubicle, is a self-contained unit that houses a shower area. Today, shower stalls will be a good option for starter homes, elderly homes, or basic motels due to their low materials prices and labor costs.

A shower stall can be shipped to your home as shower stall kits for a DIY project or as a prefabricated shower stall kit to be installed by a professional installer.

It typically consists of a shower pan or tray, walls, and a shower door or curtain to enclose the space. Shower stalls come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, making them a versatile option for almost any bathroom remodel project.

The base or tray of a shower stall is the bottom part that holds the water. It can be made of various materials, including acrylic or fiberglass. The base is usually sloped towards the drain to prevent water from pooling and causing damage to the floor.

The walls of a shower stall can be made of several materials, such as tempered glass, fiberglass, acrylic, or tile. Glass walls offer a modern and open feel, while solid walls provide privacy and a more traditional look. Some shower stalls have built-in shelves or niches for storing soap, shampoo, and other shower essentials.

Shower stalls can also come with a door or curtain to enclose the space. Doors can be sliding, swinging, or pivot, and are typically made of glass or acrylic. Shower curtains can add color and style to the space and are available in various patterns and textures.

Shower stalls can be a good choice for keeping your shower conversion cost to a minimum.
They provide a dedicated space for showering, which can help to keep the rest of the bathroom dry and clean. They can also be easier to clean than a traditional bathtub, and they use less water, making them a more eco-friendly option. Additionally, shower stalls can be a great choice for small bathrooms, as they can be customized to fit into tight spaces with less square foot.

When choosing a shower stall, consider first the value of your house and the shower installation costs in your area. From a design point of view and materials quality, those showers are considered the lowest-grade option.

Also, consider the size and layout of your bathroom, as well as your personal style and preferences. Whether you opt for a sleek glass enclosure or a more traditional one, a shower stall can be a functional addition to keep your shower conversion cost at a minimum.

Total cost: your average costs will be between 5k- 25k based on your shower installation labor cost and the quality of your building materials.

Tiled shower

A tiled shower is a type of shower stall that is lined with tiles, typically made of ceramic or porcelain, that cover the walls and floor of the shower area. Tiled showers are a popular choice for many homeowners because of their durability, versatility, and aesthetic appeal.

One of the main advantages of a tiled shower is the wide range of design options, as tiles come in various colors, sizes, and patterns. You can create a custom look by mixing and matching tiles, adding accents or borders, or creating a unique design. Additionally, tile is a versatile material that can be used to create a variety of styles, from traditional to modern and everything in between.

Also, tile is highly durable and resistant to water damage. Unlike some other materials, such as fiberglass or acrylic, tile does not warp or crack when exposed to moisture, and it is easy to clean and maintain. A tiled shower can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.

When installing a tiled shower, it is important to have a professional do the job to ensure that the tiles are installed correctly and that the shower is properly waterproofed. That fact alone will increase your shower conversion cost and the overall cost of your project.

The installation process typically involves removing any existing materials, such as a fiberglass shower stall or tile, and preparing the surface for the new tile. The installer will then apply a waterproofing membrane to ensure that the shower area is completely sealed, which is critical to prevent water damage to the surrounding walls and floor.

Once the waterproofing is in place, the installer will lay the tiles using a special adhesive and grout. The tiles are carefully placed on the walls and floor of the shower area, and any necessary cuts are made to fit around fixtures such as the showerhead and controls. After the tiles are in place, the installer will apply the grout to fill the gaps between the tiles, creating a smooth and seamless surface.

Although a tiled walk-in showers can be a great option for most people, there is one big concern that they all have in common – Grout lines.

Grout lines are an important part of any tiled shower. Grout is a mixture of cement, sand, and water that is used to fill in the spaces between tiles, and it serves a few important functions in a shower.

The problem is that grout lines can be a breeding ground for mold and mildew if they are not properly maintained. This extra work of maintaining your shower might push many homeowners away from tiles. Some people will even compromise on a stall shower only to avoid that moldy problem, as we will see below, not anymore.

In conclusion, tiled showers are a durable, versatile, and stylish option for any bathroom. Whether you choose a classic white subway tile or a colorful mosaic design, tiles can enhance the look and functionality of your bathroom for years to come.

Total cost: your shower conversion cost, assuming your contractor pulls the right permits, should average anywhere from 15k- 40k.

How does the tub to shower conversion process work?

NOMI is revolutionizing the bathroom remodeling industry like any other company in the market. You can choose between stall showers (acrylic\plastic) or custom showers in today’s market.

The first one doesn’t fit average to luxury homes, only starter homes, and the second takes weeks to estimate and design with a high price tag.

At NOMI, we have developed the ultimate solution for your bathroom remodel needs, from your shower floors to the glass doors,  at an affordable price – Dekton showers.

DEKTON shower

Dekton is a type of ultra-compact surface material that has gained popularity in recent years for its durability, resistance to heat, scratches, and stains, and low maintenance requirements.

As a result, it has become a popular choice for use in shower walls, floors, and even countertops. A Dekton shower is a type of shower that incorporates Dekton material in the design and construction of the shower enclosure.

Dekton is made from a combination of quartz, porcelain, and glass, which is compressed at high pressure and then baked at a high temperature. This process creates an extremely durable and dense material that is highly resistant to water, heat, and scratches.

Dekton is also non-porous, which means it does not absorb water or bacteria, making it a hygienic option for a shower.

One of the main benefits of a Dekton shower is its durability. Dekton is an extremely tough material that is resistant to scratches, stains, and impact, which means it is unlikely to chip or crack.

Additionally, it is resistant to UV light, which means it will not fade or discolor over time. This makes it an ideal choice for use in high-traffic areas like a shower, where it will be exposed to a lot of wear and tear.

Another advantage of a Dekton shower is its versatility. Dekton is available in a range of colors and finishes, including matte, polished, and textured, so it can be customized to suit any style or design preference. Additionally, because it is a compact material, it can be cut and shaped to fit any size or shape of shower enclosure.

When it comes to cleaning and maintenance, a Dekton shower is easy to care for. Because it is non-porous, it does not require sealing like some other materials, and it can be easily cleaned with a mild soap and water solution. Additionally, because it is resistant to bacteria and mold, it is a hygienic choice for a shower.

In conclusion, a Dekton shower is a durable, versatile, and low-maintenance option for anyone looking to upgrade their shower. Its resistance to water, heat, scratches, and bacteria makes it an ideal material for use in a shower, while its range of colors and finishes allows for customization to fit any design style.
