How to Get a Walk-in Tub Installed in Your Home

Walk-in tubs have become a virtual necessity for millions of homeowners, especially if you are getting older and want to be able to continue caring for your personal hygiene needs, but have physical limitations that make it hard to get in and out of a regular bathtub, or stand for long periods of time in a shower. For homeowners who do not currently have a walk-in tub and are not planning to move into a new home that does have one any time soon, the only choice is to get one installed. Fortunately getting a new bathtub installed in your master bedroom is a pretty simple process.

Choosing Your Ideal Tub

Walk-in tubs are not all the same, and with about 30 variations and options available, you can get essentially any tub to meet your needs. The prices can vary depending on which options you choose, but these walk-in tubs can address mobility and safety needs for a variety of people and can fit into a variety of homes. If you’re not sure which one might work best, talk to the walk-in bathtub company to discuss a consultation that will address your needs. You may also want to visit a showroom if it’s available to take a look at all the options you can choose from.

Purchasing Your Tub

Once you decide which model you need, the next step is to purchase the tub. It’s important during this stage to measure the space you have available so you get the correct size, and before you buy, check around for incentives so you get the best price. It may also be helpful to contact a walk-in bathtub company directly to ask about any additional things you might want with your tub, such as a handheld shower wand, adjustable showerheads, rails, seating (including heated seating), and more to get you exactly what you need for safety and personal hygiene.

Installing the Tub

After you have determined you need a walk-in bathtub, measured your space, and identified the exact model and size that will fit in your bathroom, now it’s time to get it installed. You will set up an appointment time with a team of qualified bathtub installers from a place like Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, and they do the rest. The process usually takes about two or three days to complete, which means you can be enjoying all the benefits that walk-in tubs have to offer in as little as a few days after your purchase (depending on the installation schedule). You won’t have to lift a finger to install the tub, or worry about hiring a subcontractor who will tear apart your bathroom to get it installed.

Walk-in tubs offer benefits of added safety and independence, hydrotherapy right in your own home without the hassle of a hot tub or Jacuzzi, and personal privacy to avoid the need to hire a home healthcare provider who will put you in and get you out of the tub.
