Are you ready to start your bathroom remodel, but don’t know where to start? Your shower or bath system is the focal point of your entire bathroom. Figuring out what you need from your bathroom is a good way to help you decide if a walk-in shower or walk-in bathtub is better for your home. Let’s look at some of the ways a new shower or bath can improve your life.
Considerations for Deciding Which Bath System Is Best for Your Home
One of the best ways to decide on which bath solution is best for your home is by asking yourself a few simple questions:
- Who is using your bathroom?
- Would having a seated bathing experience be helpful?
- Do you or a loved one require bathing assistance?
- Do you require a wheelchair or walker to access your bath system?
- Are you looking for a convenient or relaxing bathing experience?
- Would you benefit from hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, or chromotherapy?
- Which designs are you looking forward to in your new bathroom remodel?
Advantages of a Walk-In Shower
A walk-in shower utilizes a low threshold entry point, making it easy to enter. This is a common way to add accessibility for those with restricted mobility. It also makes it easier to get kids and pets in for bath time. Some features of a walk-in shower remodel include:
- Low-Entry or No-Threshold Entry Options
- Shower Door, Glass, and Curtain Options
- Built-In Shower Seating
- Additional Grab Bars and Safety Features
- Color, Pattern, and Style Variety
Advantages of a Walk-In Bathtub
A walk-in bathtub features a low threshold entry, making it easier to get into than a traditional tub. Plus, it’s deep enough that more of your body can be submerged. Walk-in tubs are accessible and comfortable. Some benefits of a walk-in bathtub remodel include:
- Hydrotherapy Massage Jets to Reduce Inflamed Joint Pain
- Easy-to-Reach Jet Controls
- LED Chromotherapy Lighting
- Water-Tight Doors
- Reservoir to Place Calming Aromatherapy Beads
- Padded Seating and Headrests
- Comfortable Add-Ons Such as Shower Head and Shower Curtain Extensions
