Can a Regular Bathtub be Converted into a Walk-in Tub?

If you’re looking to adapt your bathroom to better accommodate someone with limited mobility, you may be wondering if upgrading your tub to be more accessible can be a quick fix type of project as opposed to a full renovation. While converting your regular bathtub into a walk-in tub is doable, getting a new walk-in tub installed is a safer option that comes with many added benefits like hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, and so much more. Here’s why investing in a walk-in tub is the best option for your home, your independence, and, most importantly, your safety as you age. 

Walk in Tubs are the Safer Option 

All walk-in tubs installed by Independent Home include an ADA compliant seat, non-slip flooring, and handrails—all safety features your typical bathtub likely lacks. For someone with limited mobility, being able to get safely in and out of the tub isn’t a given. Without these features, painful falls and other dangerous mishaps are more likely to occur. These safety features also promote users’ independence and make for a pleasant, self-reliant experience that will put your mind at ease. 

When you simply convert a regular bathtub into a walk-in tub, you lose out on a lot of the safety features that are inherent in modern walk-in tubs that are professionally installed. 

Walk-in Tubs are More Convenient

In all tubs with a low-entry door, you must remain seated in the tub both as you fill it and as you drain it immediately following your bath. Independent Home walk-in tubs are designed to fill and drain faster than a regular tub, ensuring you won’t have to spend extra time transitioning in and out of it. They also have quality of life features like extendable shower wands, electronic keypads with easy to push buttons, rain shower heads, and so much more. 

Installation Expertise 

Improper installation of a handicap-accessible tub door can lead to costly repairs down the road. A door that is not installed right may not be fully watertight and could cause potentially bathroom-damaging leaks. Independent Home has been in business since 2008 and has an A+ accreditation from the Better Business Bureau, so when you invest in an installation from Independent Home, you know you will be getting a quality bathtub installation from a reputable company. 

Don’t trust a potentially unreliable company to convert your traditional bathtub into a walk-in tub. Work with a company who has years of experience installing brand-new walk-in tubs that completely renovate your bathroom and transform your bathing experience.  

Walk-in Tubs Provide More Comfort 

Standard bathtubs that have been converted to walk-in tubs are not specifically designed to provide the highest level of comfort for you. Our walk-in tubs come with added benefits such as light therapy, an essential oil dispenser, and soothing massage jets that ease pressure and pain within your joints. Getting your tub replaced with one of our walk-in tubs guarantees a relaxing, luxurious at-home spa experience that will make the investment more than worth your while. 

Higher Longevity

Every walk-in tub we install at Independent Home comes with a lifetime warranty on the key components that make your tub an enjoyable addition to your home. When you work with our reliable team, we make installing a walk-in tub in your home a long-lasting investment that will pay off for years to come.
