How Much Does A Walk-In Bath Cost

Walk-in baths are a great way to upgrade your bathroom if you’re struggling with mobility issues. Not only do they make it easier to get in and out of the bathtub, but they also provide a more comfortable bathing experience. One of the most frequent questions we encounter from customers is “How much does a walk-in bath cost?”. So, if you’re thinking about installing a walk-in bath in your home, here’s what you need to know when it comes to cost and features. In this article, we will provide a clear and concise answer to this question. After reading this article you will have a solid understanding of the options and associated costs so that you can make the best decision.

A Walk-In Bath Can Improve Your Quality Of Life

Submerging ourselves in water can do wonders for our overall sense of health and wellness. And it’s true that a mobility bathtub can really help to improve the quality of life for those who find bathing increasingly difficult. But rather than replace a standard tub for a shower, which can involve standing for an extended period of time, something not practical if you’re no longer steady on your feet, walk-in tubs for the elderly are the best bathing solution.

At TWIBC, we offer high-quality and affordable walk-in bathtubs for those with mobility issues. You can choose from a deep soak tub which is ideal for a small bathroom, to our Easy Riser which helps you to comfortably recline into the bath and has a backrest that lifts you back into a seated position once you’re ready to get out.

Each walk-in bath we offer are specially designed and developed to make bathing easier than ever. So rather than having to lift your leg over the edge of the tub, a mobility bathtub has a lower threshold to make getting into and getting out of the bath easier and safer. And for those concerned about lifting themselves out of the water after relaxing in the bubbles, a secure handrail can be added to give you the grip needed. And this helps minimize your risk of in-tub injury. Something both those finding it difficult to bathe and their loved ones are of course concerned about.

There are many reasons why people choose to install a walk-in bath. For some, it’s a matter of convenience and comfort. But for most it helps you to remain fully independent whether you’re living with family or alone.

The Physical Benefits Of Walk In Tubs For Elderly People

If getting into a standard tub is becoming more challenging a walk-in bath is the solution. The seats in walk-in tubs are designed to provide support and prevent you from slipping, which means you can relax in the water without worrying about falling or slipping. And because walk-in tubs are shallower than standard bathtubs, you’re less likely to suffer serious injuries if you do fall. If you suffer from chronic pain or arthritis, for instance, a walk-in bath can provide much-needed pain relief.

Another physical benefit of investing in a walk-in tub is that bathing can help you to breathe easier. Steam helps to open up the airways and as your muscles relax, tension melts away, and you’ll find it far easier to take a deep breath and relax.

Mental Health Benefits Of Walk-In Baths

There are also many mental health and wellness benefits to gain from installing a walk-in bath. Soaking in a tub of warm water can help improve circulation, ease joint pain, and reduce stress levels. And if you have difficulty sleeping, a nightly soak in a walk-in bathtub can help you get a better night’s rest. Plus, as we mentioned before, keeping your independence as you get older promotes self-confidence.

With a lower risk of injury while bathing, customers can also enjoy a less stressful or anxious experience, and instead consider a bubble bath as a self-care ritual, rather than a risky part of the day.

How Much Is A Walk In Bath?

At TWIBC the cost of installing a walk-in bathtub varies between £5,000 – £10,000 dependent upon individual factors and requirements of our customers. And the price you pay depends on the additional extras you choose to add on, which can enhance your overall bathing experience, such as hydrotherapy.​

⦁ Full-length baths
