There are a number of benefits to walk in tubs that should be considered when researching what is best for you. Whether you are looking at having one installed for physical reasons, or simply because you are looking for something a little more luxurious from your standard bathtub, we’ll help you determine whether it is the best choice.
Convenience of Walk-In Tubs
If you are disabled, getting older, or you are having a difficult time lifting your leg over the side of a traditional bathtub, a walk-in tub might be the perfect solution. Getting into a traditional tub under these circumstances can be very dangerous. With a walk in bathtub, you simply step into the tub and close the door. Once you’re in, you can relax on your cushioned bathtub seat.
How Walk In Tubs are Safer Than Traditional Bathtubs
Some of the most common injuries that occur at home are slips and falls, which can make the bathroom a danger zone.
If you find that it is getting more difficult for you to get into the bathtub, there is a substantial amount of danger getting out when the tub is wet and possibly slippery from shampoos and soaps.
Walk in tubs alleviate the dangers of standing on one leg while getting in/out. They do not require you to lift your leg at all, you simply step in and out using both feet.
Bathing Independently Is Important to You
We are all aging, and if you are at an age where your fear of falling is increasing, a walk in tub offers you the opportunity of keeping your independence while practicing safety at the same time. You can shower or bathe without the fear of slipping or falling while entering or exiting the bathtub, and without being dependent on someone else to help.

Safety aside, a walk in tub is a luxurious addition to your bathroom. Our walk in tubs have a number of features that will make you wonder why you waited so long to have one installed.

A Walk In Tub is the Perfect Investment

There is a belief that walk in showers and tubs are quite a bit more expensive than traditional ones, but this could not be further from the truth.
