What To Consider When Choosing a Walk-in Bath

The joy of taking a long bath to unwind and wash away the stresses of the day is something that we all look forward to. However, if you or your loved one has a mobility problem, this daily task can become quite taxing since convenient access to the bath might be hampered by stiff joints and aching muscles. These problems turn bathing into a painful, time-consuming process instead of the relaxing experience it should be.

This is where bathroom products, such as walk-in baths, designed specifically for the handicapped, come in handy.

Walk-in baths are the perfect solution for people with limited mobility. These facilities come with a number of safety features to make bathing as safe and hassle-free as possible. But before you choose a walk in bath, it’s vital that you carefully consider your needs and think about what you require the most:

Available Space 

This is probably one of the more obvious factors but you need to consider the space that you have available, and therefore the size of the bath you require.

Bathroom Style

It’s important you continue to maintain your high standards of style and design throughout your home, and your bathroom should be no different. Choose a walk in bath that matches both your bathroom current style and your own personal taste.

Additional Features 

Most suppliers will give you the flexibility of customising your walk in bath. The position of the taps and whether you want left or right sided entry doors are just two of things you can change to your own requirements and tastes. Here are some basic features you’ll want to consider:

  •   Comfortable contoured seats which can allow you to bathe without the risk of a slip or fall.
  •   A slip-resistant surface to make getting in and out of the bath much safer.
  •   Watertight doors to prevent any leaks and allow you to enjoy a long, hot bath.
  •   No hazardous mechanisms to catch yourself on.
  •   Doors which can be fitted for either left or right entry depending on your requirements.
  •   A variety of tap positions to suit your needs.
  •   Optional hydrotherapy fittings for additional comfort and a touch of spa-like luxury.
