Clawfoot Tub Shower Conversion Kit – Easily Add a Shower to your Bathtub

clawfoot tub shower

When it comes to adding character and charm to your bathroom, there’s nothing like a clawfoot tub. A luxurious soak in a beautiful clawfoot tub is also a great way to unwind after a long day of work.

However, the convenience of a shower is also a necessity for most busy homeowners.  Luckily, a clawfoot tub shower conversion kit can help transform an existing bath into a tub/shower combo without much effort or expense.

Clawfoot tub shower conversion kits are the easiest solution available for adding a shower system to your freestanding bathtub.  A clawfoot tub shower conversion kit is also the most cost-effective way to add a shower to your bath. Adding a separate walk-in shower enclosure to your bathroom could cost several thousand dollars or a lot more, especially if you need to install shower plumbing. A tub-to-shower conversion kit can also help enhance the traditional look and character of your clawfoot tub.

Available in a variety of styles and finishes, clawfoot tub shower conversion kits are inexpensive and easy to install.
