Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Sadie Brumfield
A tight space can feel claustrophobic, especially for someone who may not get around that easily. This may make it necessary to move a wall to create a larger bathroom to ensure an adequate turning radius for a wheelchair and plenty of space for someone with a walker to get around the bathroom safely. Thinking carefully through these clearance issues will help provide for both safety and comfort for you no matter how you may need to get around.
Cost and space will be factors for these tubs, but many are affordable and do not have to be as long as a standard bathtub. That means you can put them in a smaller space in most cases, which could allow for the use of this type of tub in a bathroom remodel or the creation of a new bathroom, such as on the first floor. Jetted tubs are also a consideration, but any tub may become harder to get in and out of as you age.
