If you’re planning a bathroom remodel in the coming months, there are countless decisions to be made. What style do you want? What features will you incorporate? Which of your existing elements can you keep? But one of the most important decisions of all is what kind of bathtub and shower you will choose. The shower is the focal point of most bathrooms, so it’s a decision that shouldn’t be made lightly. At Virginia Restoration Services, we recommend a walk-in bathtub and here is why.
1. Easy to Access
You may be thinking that you don’t need a walk-in tub because you are not elderly. However, the risk of falling while getting in and out of the shower is present no matter your age. Additionally, if you plan on staying in your home for the rest of your life, you’ll eventually be very thankful you made the switch when you did. Walk-in tubs are slip-resistant and low access to make them much more manageable to get in and out of. Also, if your current tub is in great shape and you’d like to keep it, our team can easily convert it into a walk-in tub!
2. Easy to Clean
Another benefit of a walk-in tub is the ease in which you’ll be able to clean it. The easy access you’ll enjoy during your daily shower or bath will also come in handy when it comes to cleaning your tub. Instead of bending over the tall side of a bathtub, you can use the lowered edge to fully reach all the way around your tub and make sure to get it very clean without straining yourself.
3. Investment in Your Future
As we mentioned before, if you plan to stay in your home permanently, you’ll be thankful you can remain independent as you age. However, a walk-in tub is also a good investment if you plan on moving in the next several years. Because they are less common than traditional bathtubs, a walk-in tub may be a selling point that will make your home stand out. It’s an attractive perk to homebuyers of all ages, especially those that are looking for a home to retire in.
