Have you been considering adding a walk-in bathtub to your next bathroom remodeling project? These bathtubs are hailed as a worthy investment for a certain kind of lifestyle. Do you fit in this category? Here are signs you need a walk-in bathtub.
You Have Limited Mobility
Mobility issues are often associated with old age. If your parents and grandparents are joining your family, you might want to include a walk-in bathtub in your bathroom remodeling project. As you age, you'll struggle to perform tasks such as lifting your leg over the edge of the tub. It's annoying considering that you own the house but can't use your bathroom as you wish.
Similarly, any older relatives or friends that you host in your home might struggle with this issue. If you intend to host them for an extended period, consider upgrading to a walk-in bathtub while working on your bathroom remodeling project. Also, if you're injured and can't lift your legs with ease, a walk-in bathtub might be ideal.
You Have a Limited Remodeling Budget
If you're considering a bathroom remodel but don't have enough funds to overhaul your entire bathroom, a walk-in bathtub might be the perfect solution. Walk-in bathtubs can have the same footprint as your old bathtub. This means you can swap out your old bathtub for a walk-in tub without worrying about space implications.
Your bathroom will look different at a fraction of the cost and time you would have spent on a complete bathroom remodeling project.
You're Struggling To Maintain Personal Hygiene
If you have ever had injuries, wounds, and irritated skin, you know how hard it is to maintain personal hygiene. Bathing becomes a chore, as you have to be careful not to irritate your skin or wound.
If you have long-term injuries and irritated skin, consider investing in a walk-in tub. You can customize it to have the necessary features needed to maintain personal hygiene without irritating your skin or wound. For example, you can add a bidet to help you clean some hard-to-reach areas.
You Need Hydrotherapy
Have you noticed how pro-athletes use hydrotherapy in their bathrooms? Athletes often use hydrotherapy to recover from strenuous training sessions, pain, or even surgery. You can also benefit from hydrotherapy if you have health conditions such as arthritis.
Typically, hydrotherapy sessions are offered in physiotherapy centers, but you can recreate the same conditions at home. You can transform your bathtub into a walk-in tub during your bathroom remodeling project. The walk-in tub can be customized to include advanced hydrotherapy features such as whirlpool jets and therapeutic air. This will help ease your pain and relax your muscles.
