Walk-In Bathtub Designs

Posted on November 17th, 2015

A walk-in bathtub from a trusted manufacturer offers you a safe, enjoyable bathing experience. There are a number of factors to consider to make the best choice for your needs, available space, and style preferences.

Whether custom-built or prefabricated, installing a walk-in shower or tub is a big undertaking that calls for professional consultation. Fitting your new walk-in tub into your available bathroom space accurately and in a timely fashion requires expertise best left to experienced professionals. You'll also want to think about features you want and your available budget. Putting all of this together is made a lot easier when the following factors are considered.

Walk-in bathtub size

A qualified bathroom design consultant can familiarize you with various bathtub sizes and help you make the right choice for your health and lifestyle. Make sure you take advantage of a free in-home consultation that includes measuring your available bathroom space and creating a diagram so that you know what will work for your home.

Prefabricated design options include Premier Care's Blue Spring bathtub, as well as compact walk in tub models that can be squeezed into even the smallest of bathrooms, including the Oasis and Cove walk-ins. For an oversized bathing experience when adequate square footage exists, a large bathtub such as the Laguna is an ideal choice. If you're looking for a standard size tub that doubles as a shower, the Sanctuary and Haven models offer that feature.

Special features

If your physical needs require it, shop for powered baths that give you automated assistance in getting in and out of the bathtub. The Empower Walk-In Tub has a side opening and features a slip-proof chair on which you sit and lower yourself into the water. A bathroom design professional will help determine the best location in your bathroom to locate tubs with such special features.

Other features that may make a difference in whether you choose a certain walk-in tub include whether the model features special functions such as foot massage jets, aromatherapy, and chromatherapy.

Finding the best walk-in bathtub designs is made easy with the help of a talented bathroom designer. Compare your preferences to your various options so that you make the ideal decision regarding your favorite walk-in bathtub designs. And keep in mind that an in-home consultation regarding your bathtub design should always come with no charge or obligation to buy.
