Have you ever wondered if a walk-in tub was right for you?
Is it something that you need in your home? Would a walk-in tub offer the types of benefits that you need or want to plan for? Is it even something that you could afford to install into your bathroom? Furthermore, is a walk-in tub an investment worth making? Like so many seniors, these are all probably questions that you’ve asked yourself over and over again. Like most buyers, your primary concern likely comes down to cost.

Is a Walk-In Tub the best financial option to meet my needs?
You might be wondering if a walk-in tub is a wise financial investment for you to make. After all, there are a number of bathroom assistance devices available for purchase that can provide similar accessibility for those who need it most. Some of these items include:
- Locking hand grips, grab bars and safety rails
- Chair lifts
- Transfer Benches
- Bath steps
- Hand-held shower nozzles and sprayers
- Grab poles
- Bathing safety cushions
- Bath lifts
- Bath tub cut away
These accessories are all designed to make bathing in a traditional bathtub easier, but they fail to address many other concerns for people with mobility challenges. One obvious reality that must be addressed is that collectively, their costs can really add up to hundreds or thousands of dollars, depending on what must be done to install them properly.
Another reality worth considering is that all of these items become bulky and obtrusive in your bathroom and they reduce the amount of functional space available for getting in and out of the bathtub while they can even create some potential safety challenges if not installed properly.
The look and feel of a walk-in tub
Walk-in tubs can often look like pieces of sterile medical equipment that belong in a hospital or nursing home rather than a private, residential bathroom but a walk-in bathtub can look and feel more like a luxurious and functional addition to your comfortable bathroom. The value of a beautiful bathroom that makes you feel safe and relaxed, all while being functional and also accessible at the same time, can’t be definitively measured by a dollar amount.
