Barrier-free baths and showers were designed as a more accessible bathing option for people of all ages. Barrier-free bathtubs include a door to get into them instead of having to step over the sometimes big ledge of the tub. Barrier-free showers are virtually flat to the ground so they are easy to step into.
Many of our customers have found barrier-free bathing options to be perfect for their bathroom. If you’ve been wondering if it’s the right option for you, read about some of the advantages below that barrier-free baths and showers can have:
According to the CDC, about 235,000 people over the age of 15 visit the emergency room because of injuries suffered in the bathroom every year. Barrier-free bathtubs are walk-in, making the process of getting in and out of the bathtub easier and safer than a traditional tub that you would have to step over to get in. Mt. Pleasant Window & Remodeling installs walk-in tubs with a seal so that you don’t have to worry about water escaping through the door and our accessible line of tubs have great grip for added safety. The walk-in showers are flat, with no step to prevent the homeowner from tripping. We also offer shower options with a textured finish base so you don’t have to worry about slipping in the shower.
Walk-in tubs and showers can give your bathroom a luxurious, almost spa-like atmosphere right in your home. Walk-in tubs are usually deeper than a standard tub, so your whole body can comfortably fit while you soak all of your stress and worries away. Mt. Pleasant Window & Remodeling offers additional features like seats, grab bars and other accessories in some of our models, so you can have exactly what you want for your bathroom at home. Additionally, Mt. Pleasant Window & Remodeling proudly offers a full-range customer customization. So the customer is in control of how big, wide, deep or long they want their bath or shower to be!
Barrier-free bathtubs and showers can give the homeowner a form of independence when bathing. If a customer has an injury that would benefit from a soak, a barrier-free bathtub can be a perfect solution. Also, barrier-free showers can be wheelchair accessible.
With so many color, design and accessory options available, choosing a walk-in tub or shower is one of the best ways to show off your particular style in your bathroom. The options and combinations are truly endless.
