Walk-in tubs are often considered a functional addition for people who have trouble navigating a conventional bathroom. In reality, though, a walk-in bathtub can be a massive improvement to any home in Long Island.

To understand why so many local homeowners have chosen walk-in tubs from Bath Planet by Bathroom Pros NYC, check out these five all-around benefits.

1. Walk-in Tubs Are a Safer Bathing Option

First things first: unsurprisingly, a walk-in tub is far safer than a conventional high-walled bathtub. By removing the need to step over a tub wall—which puts the bather in a position of instability and imbalance—walk-in tubs eliminate one of the most common causes of at-home injuries nationwide.

Just how many people are affected? According to a CDC study, over 200,000 bathroom injuries occur each year, the majority of which happen while stepping in or out of the tub or shower! Especially as family members age, a traditional bathtub can become a significant daily hazard.

The key safety features of a walk-in tub from Bathroom Pros NYC include:

  • A Watertight Swinging Door—Customize the Opening Direction Based on Your Bathroom Layout and Needs!
  • A Low Entry Threshold That’s Easy to Step-Through
  • Sturdy Grab Bars for Additional Support
  • Slip-Resistant Tub Floors, Walls, and Surfaces
  • Easy-to-Reach Faucet Controls That Reduce Strain

2. Walk-in Tubs Can Have Health Benefits

Daily comfort aside, walk-in tubs with hydrotherapy bring a host of health and wellness benefits as well. Hydrotherapy walk-in tubs have been reported to:

  • Reduce Muscular Tension
  • Stimulate the Immune System
  • Relax the Mind
  • Ease Joint Pain, Stiffness, and Inflammation
  • Help Encourage Circulation
  • Relieve Symptoms of Arthritis, Rheumatism, Diabetes

If you’re most interested in the health aspect of a walk-in bathtub installation, ask Bathroom Pros NYC about our specialized hydrotherapy tubs. With water jets, air spa jets, aromatherapy, and ozone purification, these tubs are designed to support mental and physical wellness in every way.

3. Walk-in Tubs Are More Comfortable for Everyone

In addition to their safety benefits and ADA compliance, walk-in tubs are more comfortable, too! No matter your age, career, or daily routine, you’ll love the greater relaxation of a spacious, deep-soaking walk-in bath. With additional touches of luxury like built-neck pillows, your walk-in tub installation will be like having your own spa resort at home.

With exception of infants and toddlers, walk-in tubs are great for anyone in your home:

  • Arthritis
  • Hip / Knee Replacements
  • Heart Surgery / Improve Circulation
  • Professional Athletes

4. Walk-in Tubs Make Life Easier

Yet another way that walk-in tubs can improve your daily life at home? By reducing the time, effort, and stress that goes into cleaning your bathroom!

When you choose a walk-in bath from Bathroom Pros NYC, you’ll benefit from mold- and mildew-resistant surfaces that naturally prevent the buildup of grime. Thanks to the thick material and nonporous surfaces, all it takes is a little water and vinegar to keep your bathtub sparkling clean.

 5. Walk-in Tubs Are Versatile and Beautiful

Gone are the days of boring or overly basic walk-in tubs that look like they belong in a hospital rather than a home! With dozens of options for tub color, wall surrounds, and accessories, we can make sure that your new walk-in tub installation goes perfectly with your dream aesthetic.

Here are just a few ideas that we can bring to life:

  • Want a high-end look for your bathroom? Let us lay your hydrotherapy tub into a raised platform with stone-inspired walls and matte black hardware.
  • Love the earthy natural look? Consider a Basket Weave or granite-inspired pattern for your tub surrounds, paired with gold or brass accents.
  • Prefer something timeless yet contemporary? Go with Roman Block tile walls in a gorgeous Calcutta Marble color with nickel faucets and handles.
