A walk-in bathtub has quite a few benefits when compared to a standard tub. Walk-in bathtubs allow for both showering and bathing, and there are models to suit any size bathroom or particular tub need. Some may think that their standard bathtub is enough, and investing in a walk-in tub isn’t really necessary, but we’re here to show you the benefits!
3 reasons you may want to invest in a walk-in bathtub installation are:
Added safety – A walk-in bathtub provides added safety to any bathroom. With a traditional tub, it takes a pretty big step into a slippery area to get into the tub, but this is taken care of with a walk-in model. Often, walk-in tubs are non-slip, and the wall of the tub can be opened easily, and sealed when closed, so a very small step is all that’s necessary to get right in. The seat located in the walk-in tub allows you to sit down and wash yourself with ease, so slipping is never a big concern.
Pain management – Unlike a standard tub, the seat in a walk-in tub also allows for better pain management. Pain conditions such as arthritis, past injuries, and those caused by aging can make standing in a shower or getting in and out of a regular tub difficult, and the seat gives you a simple way to soak your pain away. Warm water is a tried, tested, and proven combatant of pain and your baths can be even more pain-relieving in a walk-in tub.
Added relaxation – With jets, you can think of your walk-in tub as your own personal whirlpool, and they can provide added relaxation during your bath time. Stress can be a big bully to your general health, and relieving stress is part of living well. Sitting in your walk-in tub and allowing the jets to do all the work can give you just what you need to lower your blood pressure and keep stress at bay.
