Walk-in baths is a tub with a door to allow easy entry and exit for individuals with mobility issues. Anyone can use walk-in tubs, but they are especially beneficial for seniors or those with disabilities. 

In addition to the obvious safety benefits of having a door on your tub, walk-in tubs also offer several other safety and experience features that can make your bathing experience more enjoyable. Here are some safety and experience features you can find in walk-in tubs.

Anti-slip flooring 

The anti-slip floor is designed to prevent slipping, making it an essential safety feature of walk in bathtubs. In addition, textured flooring can provide a good grip, making it ideal for wet or slippery surfaces. Alternatively, nonslip mats can be placed on the floor of the tub to provide extra traction. Whichever type of anti-slip flooring you choose, ensure it is compatible with your walk-in bathtub to ensure the best possible safety and protection.

Grab bars 

Grab bars provide extra security and stability when getting in and out of the tub, which is especially important for those with limited mobility or at risk of falling. In addition, grab bars can help support your weight when sitting down or standing up, making it easier to maintain your balance. Finally, when installed correctly, grab bars can provide extra peace of mind and help you enjoy your walk-in tub for many years.

Anti-scald 

When most of us think about taking a bath, we picture relaxing in a warm tub filled with bubbles. However, it’s important to remember that bathing in extremely hot or cold water can be dangerous. Thousands of people are injured yearly by scalding water, and young children and seniors are particularly vulnerable. One way to help prevent these burns is to choose a walk-in tub with an anti-scald feature. This type of bathtub is designed to maintain a consistent water temperature, even if the tap is turned on and off multiple times.

Outward opening doors 

The door on walk in bathtubs with shower is typically located at the end of the tub, away from the faucets and controls. This allows you to enter and exit the tub without having to reach over the edge of the tub or twist your body. In addition, the door on a walk-in tub is usually wider than a standard bathtub door, making it easier to enter and exit the tub if you have limited mobility.

Heated Seating 

If you live in a cold climate, you know how difficult it can be to get into a cold tub. However, with a heated seat, you can enjoy a warm and comfortable place to sit while you bathe. This is especially beneficial if you have arthritis or joint pain.

Final thoughts 

If you are considering installing a walk-in bathtub in your home, many different safety and experience features are available that can make your bathing experience more enjoyable. When choosing a walk-in tub for your home, look for features like anti-slip flooring, grab bars, hydrotherapy jets, outward-opening doors, and heated seating.

Candle Club Of The Month from Broken Top Brands

Candle Club Of The Month from Broken Top Brands

My favorite time to light a candle in my home is after a deep clean. I like to start my weekend with a clean house and when I am done dusting, wiping and mopping I can light a candle to add fresh aroma and the smell means clean to me! I am a bit of a candle snob in that I use candles that burn clean and that are made with natural ingredients. If the vessels and jars can be reused, then bonus!

Recently I came across a candle club! Broken Top Candles are a monthly candle box that comes to your door with 1-2 candles packaged with a book of matches ready to burn your new seasonal candle of the month! My recent box includes Juniper Smoke and Pumpkin Spice! They smell amazing and these jars will be great to use after my candle is burned down.

All subscriptions come with free shipping plus exclusive Candle Club perks, as in secret scents before they’re officially released! You are not committed to a subscription box at Broken Top Brands, you can buy single candles, linen sprays, diffusers, lotion and more. Shop by product or by scent and find a gift for just about anyone on your list that loves candles, skincare and home products. Visit Broken Top Brands.
