A walk-in bathtub is a luxurious addition to any bathroom and provides numerous benefits for individuals of all ages and abilities. It can provide the ultimate in relaxation, safety, and convenience. From improved circulation to easier accessibility, there are many reasons why you may want to consider a walk-in bathtub for your home.
What Is A Walk-in Bathtub?
A walk-in bathtub is a type of tub that has a door that allows the user to step into the bathtub without having to lift their legs over the side of the bathtub. Our tubs feature the lowest threshold in the industry at only two inches high! Additionally, our tubs can include options such as built-in seats and grab bars, and massaging jets to make bathing easier and more therapeutic for those with limited mobility.
What Are The Benefits?
There are many benefits to having an EZ Step walk-in bathtub, especially for those with limited mobility or who are aging. Here are some of the top benefits:
1. Increased independence – With a walk-in bathtub, you don’t need someone else to help you get in and out of the bathtub. This means you can maintain your independence and bathing routine, even as your mobility decreases.
2. Improved safety – Our walk-in bathtubs are designed with safety features like grab bars and slip-resistant surfaces to help prevent accidents. This is especially important for seniors who are at an increased risk of falling.
3. Soaking options – Soaking in a warm bath can help relieve muscle pain, tension headaches, and arthritis symptoms. Walk-in bathtubs often have additional features like built-in jets or heated seats to further enhance the soaking experience.
4. Relaxation – Taking a relaxing bath is a great way to unwind after a long day. With a walk-in bathtub, you can take your time and enjoy the experience without worrying about getting in and out of the bathtub safely.
Who Should Get a Walk-in Tub?
While many might think of a walk-in tub as something only older people use or those with disabilities. While it is true that a majority of consumers that have these tubs installed are elderly or disabled, it does not mean that the tubs are exclusively for that age group.
In fact, many adults 21-40 are increasingly using walk-in tubs, especially athletes—for hydrotherapy in their own homes!
A walk-in bathtub can be a great addition to any home, providing many benefits for those who need a little extra help when it comes to bathing.
Using water to help treat many health conditions is a proven treatment that you often see athletes taking advantage of. Unfortunately, not all homes come with built-in seated baths or even soaking tubs. The dominant trend is quite opposite. Many new homes are built with walk-in showers and forego the tub.
In hybrid bathrooms, they combine these showers with a standalone soaking tub, which is great for hydrotherapy. However, if you’re a person that struggles with mobility issues or other conditions that limit movement—these tubs are impossible to use.
That’s where our walk-in tubs come to be the hero in this story. Rather than a traditional tub that you lay in horizontally, these are vertically oriented. Using a watertight entry door with just a 2” high threshold, allows you to sit and bathe vs. lying down.
Additionally available water jets are strategically positioned to provide relief to key muscle groups that contribute to your daily pain.
Choosing The Right Tub
With so many different models and styles on the market, it can be tough to know which one is right for you. Here are a few things to consider when choosing the perfect walk-in bathtub. Make sure you think about these things very diligently because a walk-in tub is an investment. You want to make sure you got the best possible return on that investment. This is not a purchase where you cut corners and settle for the bare minimum, because you’ll never be happy with it.
Size: Make sure to measure the space where you want to install your walk-in bathtub before making a purchase. You’ll also want to consider how much space you have inside the bathtub itself for moving around. Some walk-in bathtubs are larger than others, so it’s important to choose one that will fit both physically and aesthetically in your bathroom. There’s nothing worse than building out your perfect tub, getting it ordered, and realizing it will not fit in your space.
Features: Walk-in bathtubs come with a variety of features that can make bathing easier and more comfortable. From built-in seats and grab bars to jets and massage functions, there are plenty of options available. Consider what features are most important to you and choose a model that has everything you need (and nothing you don’t).
Budget: Walk-in bathtubs can range in price based on the features, materials, designs, and other custom features. It’s important to have a realistic idea of how much you’re willing to spend before beginning your search. This will help narrow down your choices and ensure that we create a walk-in bathtub that’s both affordable and accommodates your needs.
Why Choose An EZ Step Walk-In Bathtub?
