If accessibility is necessary for your bathroom, converting your existing tub into a walk-in bathtub can give you and your loved ones a safer bathing experience.
Since it’s no secret that the presence of a tub in your bathroom can make a simple space feel more luxurious, upgrading to a walk-in bathtub will allow you to sneak in more safety and comfort features to accommodate your family members of all ages.
So if you’re still not convinced a walk-in bathtub is the best investment you can get for your bathroom, here are a few reasons that may appeal to you:
The presence of a side door eliminates the process of getting in and out of bathtubs thus lowering the risks of injury from slipping or falling.
The addition of safety features like handrails and built-in seating will allow family members with limited mobility to feel more at ease in the tub.
A warm soak in the tub to alleviate arthritis, high blood pressure, or stress will be more accessible with a walk-in bathtub so your family members can have an alternative way to get relief from their symptoms.
