    Below are the best options for walk-in bathtubs for you. Take a look and think about which option might be the most suitable according to your needs, wants, space, budget, health concerns, safety concerns, convenience, etc.

    Soaking tub: These are the most basic walk-in tubs. These tubs are designed to provide simple water therapy and nothing more. Sit back and relax in the water and enjoy the bathing experience. A leakproof door is installed, and usually, a grab bar and hand-held showers are included as accessories in the tub.

    Slide-in tub: The differentiating features of this walk-in tub are the seat-high surface and floor and an outward bound gate, which allows a person with leg weakness or wheelchair-bound individuals to access the bathtubs easily. However, it is as well-suited for people who do not have such problems.

    Wheelchair-accessible tubs: These tubs are specifically designed to be useful for wheelchair-bound individuals; the design provides direct transfer from the chair to the tub and back. An outward-bound gate, grab bars, and non-slip seats are installed for more safety and security.

    Hydrotherapy tubs: The differentiating feature of this tub is the water-powered jets, or whirlpool jets, that are used to provide the user with therapeutic benefits. The action generated by the water is quite aggressive and used to cure various injuries, muscle pain, and joint pain.

    Air-massage tub: In these walk-in tubs, air-power jets are used for therapy, providing more subtle and gentle massaging effects for treatment. Unlike the water jets, the air jets are gentle and more useful for the elderly and individuals with sensitive skin. It helps to alleviate soreness and pain by air jets within the water.

    Bariatric tubs: These kinds of tubs are designed for large individuals who require lots of space. The seat of a bariatric tub is big enough to accommodate large-sized individuals.

    Combination shower and tub: It’s a perfect combination, as the benefits of both the shower and bathtub are installed in a single bathtub. Individuals can choose what they want at any given time. The variation comes from the compact tub for small spaces to large ones for bigger space.

    Combination-therapy tub: To enhance your bathing experience, this type of tub comes with both the water and air therapy features; sometimes the added benefits come as aromatherapy and chromotherapy.

    We provide a wide range of walk-in bathtubs that can be personalized to suit your needs. We provide proper guidance for what type of bathtub best suits your needs. From checking the size of your bathroom to installation and consultation after the installation, we do it all.
