As seniors decide to age at home, they face decisions about how to improve bathroom safety. A key safety issue is the tub. Stepping over the side of the tub to take a shower is a safety risk that can be eliminated, so many Canadian seniors would prefer a walk-in shower.
Advantages of a walk-in shower or tub over a regular bathtub
Walk-in showers and tubs focus on safety and accessibility. A low-entry threshold to walk over, sit in the tub, or stand in the shower makes it easier to get in and out, even without perfect balance.
But an extensive bathroom renovation is extremely disruptive and expensive. Most new installations take up to four days and can cost $4,000 to $10,000 or more. Which would be okay if that was what it took for seniors to be safer in their own homes.
Fortunately, there’s a better way.
Tub to Shower Conversion Vs. Walk-in Tub Installation
You can add step-in accessibility by converting your existing tub to a step-in shower in just 2 to 3 hours. Plus, kits are less than $1,000 for a full walk-in tub conversion. Easy enough for a DIY project, or there’s an installer near you.
So, do you get the same functionality for 20% or less in only a few hours?
The short answer is yes.
You can modify your existing tub for safer and easier bathtub access with multiple tub openings and sizing options. Choose Canada-wide installation or use a DIY tub cutout kit.
- Any Type of Tub – A steel, fiberglass or cast-iron bathtub can be converted to a step-in shower.
- Molded-In Skid-Resistant Surface – The built-in anti-skid surface means you can safely stand on the step. This is a permanent anti-skid surface, not a sticker that could peel off.
- Over 20 Years of Experience – CleanCut products are successfully installed in tens of thousands of homes and senior care facilities across Canada and the US.
- Money Savings – CleanCut products can be installed for approximately 20% of the cost of a tub renovation.
