We’re sure you’ve seen them before: those walk-in tubs with the high walls and watertight sealed doors. Maybe it looked useful, but you didn’t think you had a reason to get one at the time. You don’t have to have a prior medical need to own a walk-in bath, though. In fact, there are several benefits to installing accessible tubs in your home today.
ImproveIt Home Remodeling is ready to be your Columbus walk-in tub company, and we’ve compiled a list of the reasons why replacing your current bathtub is the best investment you can make for a safer, happier future.
1) Increased Mobility
At ImproveIt, we understand that aging gracefully isn’t always easy. As we get older, our bodies slow down, and our range of motion might not be what it used to be. Lifting our legs over tub walls seems simple enough, but can prove to be challenging.
With an easy-open, watertight door, walk-in tubs make sure this doesn’t have to be the case. Keep your independence and never worry about being able to access your tub or shower without help again.
2) Safety & Functionality
Walk-in tubs reduce the hazard of bathroom falls – plain and simple. Falls are often one of the greatest health risks for older adults, and can often lead to other health issues and reduced mobility and independence. Columbus walk-in tubs not only limit this risk by providing users easy door access, but also provide built-in seating and extendable showerheads so users can sit or stand while bathing.
A quality walk-in bath design includes a heated air system in the form of water jets that can provide a soothing massage experience. This is called hydrotherapy and is used to calm sore muscles and ease aches and pains in the body.
If you suffer from poor circulation, arthritis, fibromyalgia, or any number of other bodily issues, hydrotherapy might just be the solution you’ve been looking for.
4) Low-Maintenance & Affordable
For all of us at ImproveIt, we want this investment in the future of your health and independence to be worthwhile and accessible. Our tubs are created with BCI Acrylic for extra durability that lasts. Our designs repel away mold and mildew, so that you don’t have to worry about any strenuous cleaning. And with easy one-day installation, you never have to worry about major renovation or maintenance costs.
