Bath Day is for Everyone
In this article, the author talks about how his friends used to have a 'bath day'
once a week. This then leads to him talking about bathtubs and why people replace theirs. The most common reason is because of age; someone is no longer able to get in and out of their bathtub on their own. Sometimes this is even the main reason why an elderly person would move into a facility. But, you don't have to move; just get a new walk in bathtub instead!
The first part of redoing your bathtub is to have a professional come to your home to suss out the situation. Estimates can't be done over the phone because the professional needs to see the plumbing issues, the doorway and more. It's critical to put a tub surround on all walk-in tubs so that water doesn't overflow or cause mold later on. All tubs come in different sizes and capacities so be sure to do your research and figure out who will be using it in the present and future.
There are also walk in and roll in showers as well. The difference: a walk in shower has a dam, a short wall, to step over while a roll in shower has a slight ridge or dam. Depending on how much money you want to spend or who the tub or shower is for will determine which one you would purchase. Read more about bath day
and the right tub or shower for you in the article.
