What you need to consider before buying a walk in bath

Taking the challenge out of bathing

Baths have been in existence for quite some time. And sadly, they are amongst the most neglected essentials in the house, ranking less when it comes to defining comfort in the house. This is because conventional baths are fast becoming a thing of the past, due to the health hazards associated with them.

It then remains essential that as you think about quality, you should consider safety too. Now imagine a bath that combines luxury, convenience, and safety. Well, your guess is good as ours - 'walk-in baths.'

Walk-in baths are rapidly gaining popularity as a common feature of the modern home. This as they combine advancement in technology with safety and also have therapeutic features.

Walk-in baths are crafted with the individual in mind, so from children to the elderly, they provide seamless ease of access and use for everyone. While, personal preference is essential, let's take a look at some key factors to consider before buying a walk-in bath.

1. Convenience

This is arguably the best place to start when shopping for a walk-in bath. It best answers the question - "why" you need a walk-in bath. And in seeking convenience, it's just important you consider the following factors:

Type

There are different types of walk-in baths, which we categorise into two parts, namely: standard walk-in baths and special needs walk-in baths.

The standard baths; these are regular and simple baths tailored for luxury and convenience. The types include;

  • The standard tubs
  • The step-in tubs
  • The soaker tubs

The special needs walk-in baths; these types of baths, like the name implies, are specifically designed to cover people with any form of disability that affects their mobility or people who seek to relieve anxiety, stress, or just seeking therapeutic gains. The types include;

  • Wheelchair accessibility tubs.
  • Therapeutic tubs, such as chemotherapy tubs, aromatherapy tubs, amongst others.

Size

Walk-in bath comes in various sizes and shapes and can be tailored to suit your needs specifically. An instance is a bariatric tub, designed to contain anyone weighing over 300 pounds.

Ease of use

This is another crucial factor to consider asides convenience before buying a walk-in bath. So you must check for the quality of the:

The Door

Generally, walk-in bath door options are of two variants; the door that opens 'inwards,' and the door that opens 'outwards.' You can then select the door option that suits your taste, and also provides ease of use for you or anyone else 'who' will have access to the walk-in baths.

Water fill and drain

Conventional tubs usually take a long time to fill with or to drain water. However, walk-in baths are infused with technology that makes water filling and draining a quick process.

Just as you would consult an automobile expert before you buy that luxury car, so also, it is highly recommended that you consult an expert when shopping for that ideal walk-in bath.

Walk-in baths are revolutionising and raising the standard of luxury, convenience, and safety in the bathroom. Now that you know key factors to consider before buying one, why not get a walk-in bath today.
