3 Stylishly Smart Tub to Shower Remodel Ideas

Affordable inspiration for converting your outdated tub to a classy shower.

If you’re considering a tub to shower remodel to streamline the look of your bathroom or make it more functional, or both, you’re on to something. Today’s design trends point to beautiful and luxurious master bathrooms – sans the tub. The secret to scoring all the style without the large price tag? Keep the plumbing where it is.

If your home is like most, the tub has walls on three sides. If this is the case for your space, it's fairly straightforward to remove the old tub and tile the new shower space from floor to ceiling. Not having to relocate the plumbing will save money, time, and stress, so you can focus on the style that speaks to you the most.  These tub to shower remodel ideas will help you envision the stylishly smart bathroom makeover of your dreams. 

  1. Traditional

    For an updated take on a traditional look, blend sleek glass shower doors with warm and neutral walls, tile, and countertops. Accessorize with organic earth tones like moss green and chocolate brown to give your space an authentic spa-like feel.


One of our tub to shower remodel ideas is to incorporate an open or partially open shower for a streamlined look.

  1. Dramatic

For a dramatic vibe, go for a dark- and deep-hued color scheme with varied textures, like wood, ceramic, glass, and stainless. Use contrasting dark and light warm tones to make the space pop. Matching walls and countertops accentuated with a brightly colored ceramic vessel sink will add to its sultry appeal.


  1. Contemporary

    Open or partially open showers are increasingly popular for their streamlined look and feel, and they're sure to add class to any monochromatic bathroom space. Ask your bathroom remodeler about grading the floor just right so the water will trickle down the drain, and not splash your floors. Blend shades of white and warm grey with bright lighting (on a dimmer switch). You can't beat the luxury of a roomy shower with an oversized, high-end shower head to rinse off the stress of the day.
