Walk-In Tubs & Handicap Accessible Bathtub
We get a lot of questions about walk tubs. The correct term is walk-in tub and our experienced designers can help you find what you're looking for. As the Baby Boomer generation ages, there is an increased concern about aging in-place. Aging in-place refers to your ability to remain living in the place where you have lived for many years, or in a non-healthcare type environment, safely and comfortably as you age.
Walk-in tubs allow you to open the door a tub, step over a low threshold, and enjoy the benefits of a tub, as opposed to a shower. With a walk-in tub you can get the benefits of:
- water therapy
- massaging jets, or
- simply soaking comfortably
There are many models to choose from with a wide variety of colors to compliment the current décor of your bathroom. Walk-in tubs are:
- designed to go in the same space as your old tub and
- they don’t look clinical or institutional
- can be incorporated to look like they belong in your bathroom.
