What Are The Benefits?
What makes a step-in bathtub different? Unlike traditional tubs, a step-in tub has an inward or outward swinging door that allows you to enter and exit the tub without risking your balance. A traditional tub typically has a 1.5-foot wall height, but with compromised balance from injuries or even simple aging, that 1.5 feet can seem 4 or 5 feet high! Step-in bathtubs are a great way to take the risk and hassle out of your bath. Even better, the majority of step-in bathtubs we offer also double as sitting bathtubs. A sitting bathtub takes additional risks out of the bath by allowing you to sit as if in a regular chair. Leaning back into a traditional bath is not only risky but also quite difficult as we get older. A sitting tub also makes it easier to get up and exit the tub when your bath is complete.
