Update: I went ahead with the shower conversion and I love it! I got a rain shower head plus a hand held sprayer, 3 shelves, 2 grab bars, and a fold down teak seat. The only problem I ran into was the shower curtain. The shower pan is sloped toward the drain so the shower curtain is fine on the deep end but crumples up on the shallow end.I've been giving some thought into getting rid of a bathtub/shower combo and installing a low entry shower stall. But it would be in the hall bath, which I've heard is a bad idea when you go to sell the house. Most families want a bathtub in the hall bath for the kids, not in their master bedroom. But the master bath in our house is my husband's bathroom (it's very small) and my bathroom is the hall bath, and I'm the one that wants the shower conversion.
At this point, I'm not sure I should be concerned about resale since I plan to never leave this house until forced to. Shower conversion kits have come a long way in recent years and some are really stunning, but I just don't know if people still think they're tacky and will hurt resale value.
I keep thinking I should make the house convenient for me, not the next owner, but I don't want to destroy the home's value either. What to do...what to do???
I would have gone with glass doors, but I didn't want to clean them all the time, plus it was more than I could afford. So I mess with the shower curtain all the time. Oh, well. Other than that, it was a good decision and I'm sure I'll appreciate it even more when my mobility gets more limited.
