Deciding to upgrade your bathroom with a walk-in tub can be intimidating for many reasons. Luckily, we’re here to help with a comprehensive list of all the benefits that come with this wonderful feature!
One of the number one concerns of people considering a walk-in tub is the extent to which they will enter and exit the tub if they have limited mobility. With the low step entry threshold typical of most walk-in tubs, you will be able to walk in and sit right down without worrying about slipping and falling.
Whether you use a walker, scooter, or wheelchair, having a safety walk-in tub can do wonders to help improve your bathing experience by making the process as comfortable and straightforward as possible.
If you struggle with chronic muscle, joint, or bone pain, hydrotherapy is a form of physical therapy that’s been used by humans for millennia. Walk-in tubs can be installed with hydrotherapy jets that, because of their depth, will fully submerge the bather’s whole body for additional relief.
A little tip: you can also add a couple of cups of Epsom salt to a warm bath with your hydrotherapy jets for extra rest and rejuvenation!
Doubles as a shower
Most walk-in tubs also double as a stand-up or sit-down shower with a faucet set and an extendable showerhead. If multiple people use the new shower, this is especially effective as the upgraded bathroom will benefit people of many different mobilities.
