The Benefits of Having a Walk-in Tub
June 30th, 2017 | Matt Connoly | Uncategorized
When you reach a certain age, and plan on staying in the same home, some helpful renovations might have to be made. One of the most common adjustments is renovating your bathroom. To start, installing a walk-in bathtub will be essential. There are many benefits that come with installing a walk-in, but here are the most important to consider:
Benefit 1: Easily Accessible
If your mobility is limited and you have trouble climbing in/out of a standard tub, then a walk-in bathtub may be the perfect choice for your renovated bathroom. Not only are these tubs raised significantly from the floor, they’re easy to use. There are usually grips on the surface of the tub, and the door is easy to open and maneuver. Plus: you can include a seat within the walk-in tub, which makes bathing a breeze.
Benefit 2: Easy to Maintain
Contrary to popular belief, walk-in tubs are as easy to maintain as standard tubs. As long as the door seals tightly, and the drain functions properly, you’re in the clear! In addition: cleaning the tub is easy, too — especially since you won’t have to bend down.
Benefit 3: No-Slip Showers
There are many options when having a walk-in tub installed. One of the more popular options is a walk-in tub/shower combination. This model gives you the option to stand up and shower in the tub, while holding onto the handles that are built into it.
