The Top 5 Benefits of Walk-in Bathtubs

When planning a bathroom remodel, one significant decision you’ll have to make is choosing the right bathtub. Walk-in bathtubs have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. At GoodLife HR, a 5-star rated, locally-owned bathroom remodeler in Missouri and Springfield, MO, we’ve seen firsthand the advantages these tubs bring. Here, we share the top five benefits of installing a walk-in bathtub in your home.

1. Improved Safety

The most notable benefit of walk-in bathtubs is the safety they offer. Traditional bathtubs can be slippery and difficult to step over, posing a risk for accidents. Walk-in tubs significantly reduce this risk.

Features that Enhance Safety:

  • Low Entry Threshold: This allows for easy and safe entry and exit.
  • Non-Slip Flooring: This feature minimizes the risk of slipping.
  • Built-in Handrails: These provide additional support.

2. Therapeutic Features

Walk-in bathtubs can be equipped with features like hydrotherapy jets and heated backrests, offering a spa-like experience that can have therapeutic benefits.

Health Benefits:

  • Pain Relief: Hydrotherapy jets can help soothe aching muscles and joints.
  • Improved Circulation: Warm water can help increase blood flow and improve circulation.
  • Stress Relief: The calming effect of soaking in a tub can help reduce stress and anxiety.

3. Comfort

Many walk-in tubs feature built-in seats, allowing you to relax comfortably and securely during your bath.

4. Independence for Seniors and Individuals with Mobility Issues

Walk-in bathtubs are an excellent option for seniors or individuals with mobility issues who value their independence. These tubs are designed for safe, private bathing without assistance.

5. Increased Home Value

With all these benefits, installing a walk-in bathtub can increase your home’s value. This can be especially true in areas with a significant senior population.

"This company is incredible! Had a 6 week timeline- and there wasn’t a day that a full crew wasn’t there working. And it was a big job- all new tile flooring throughout- new large island granite/tile replaced along with appliances and extended my existing cabinets (stain matched perfectly)- new baseboards and painted whole inside of house. Everyone on site was polite and kept mess to a minimum"
