Lifetime Benefits of Walk-In Baths by KOHLER

There’s no doubt that safer bathing benefits everyone, and especially the elderly, handicapped, and low mobility household members. Here are some of the amazing benefits of installing a more accessible bathroom.

  • Accessibility: Walk-in tubs allow for just about anyone to safely enter and exit out of the bathtub without having to worry about slipping and falling when stepping over a ledge. These tubs have built indoors that allow you to access the tub with ease.
  • Safety: For those who need a safer way to enter their tub, a walk-in tub helps to make sure that you have the safest entry available. These tubs are great for anyone who cannot easily access a standard tub.
  • Durability: Each tub offered by Pacific Bath Company is American-made with high-quality, long-lasting materials.
  • Independence: If you or someone in your household has been unable to use the bathtub alone because of mobility issues, a walk-in tub is a life-changing feature that can help to restore independent bathing.
  • Comfort: Walk-in tubs provide luxurious comfort as most are equipped with custom-fit seating, grab bars, controls, and other features to help you stay as safe as possible in your bathtub.

Types of Walk-In Tubs

Walk-in tub models have advanced considerably in the last decade, and more and more options are available for a truly customized remodel. Here are some of the most common tub types that homeowners can choose from:

  • Soaker Tub: Soaker tubs are walk-in tubs that are made with deeper dimensions than a regular walk-in tub. These tubs allow you to immerse completely in the water, and are great for those who like to unwind after a long day or soak in a warm bath after a long workout.
  • Spa Tub: If you’re excited about the prospect of having a jacuzzi-like experience at home, you’re not alone. Spa tubs are very popular for walk-in tub remodels, with jets, colored lights, and other features for more soothing and luxurious bath times.
  • Wheelchair Accessible: Wheelchair-accessible walk-in tubs are very popular with those who are handicapped as it allows them to roll their wheelchair right into the tub. These tubs are a great upgrade for people who are looking to make their home more wheelchair accessible.
  • Bariatric Walk-In Tubs: Bariatric tubs are built specifically to suit individuals weighing over 300lbs, ensuring a safer and more comfortable bathing experience. While most walk-in baths can handle weights under 300lbs, these tubs can accommodate those weighing up to 600 lbs.
