Designing for life with walk-in baths

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BathInterior

These days, when people are living longer and, generally, healthier lives, homes are being designed and remodeled for “aging in place.” The room in the house that generally gets the most attention is the bathroom.

Walk-in bathtubs and walk-in showers are the two most important components of an “age friendly” bathroom. Households with senior or disabled members are now routinely specifying these fixtures when they remodel or build a new custom home.

But creating a safe environment for seniors and family members with limited mobility is not the only good reason for installing walk-in bathtubs and showers. People whose jobs or athletic pursuits cause stiffness or stressed muscles can also benefit from therapeutic bathtubs and showers with massage capabilities. Throughout history, water therapy has been recognized as a health-aid, as well as for maintaining good hygiene.
