How do I choose my walk-in bath?
If you decide to buy a walk-in bath, there are a few important factors to consider. Below are some of the key considerations:
How much will it cost?
Due to the toughened steel frame, the reinforced bath shell and the engineering required to include a watertight door, walk-in baths are generally more expensive than regular baths. The cost can also depend on the type of bath, the extras you choose, and the adaptations required.
A specialist advisor will do their best to keep the cost of your walk-in bath within your budget.
What type and size of walk-in bath will I need?
Before buying your walk-in bath, there are a few factors to take into consideration, such as:
What level of mobility do you have?
Walk-in baths cater for various levels of mobility. You may require a power seat to gently lower you into the bath or maybe you need a bath in which you can sit up straight or enter in a bathing chair. You may also be a bariatric patient and require the extra support and width of a particular design.
Whatever your level of mobility, it’s important to give precise details to your supplier to find out the model that would be most appropriate for your present mobility and what you may require should your condition change.
How much space do you have?
Although walk-in baths usually fit the space of your old bath, it’s still important to consider room size when choosing a walk-in bath. The average UK bathroom is only 2.3m by 2.7m, but most good suppliers and fitters of walk-in baths will help you select the right model and ensure it doesn’t take up any more space than your old bath.
How much can you afford?
Of course, affordability is important, so it’s crucial to think about the reason for buying a walk-in bath before taking on the financial commitment.
A walk-in bath can be a fantastic addition to your home, but there are other ways to adapt your present bath should the need arise.

What extras are available?
Most walk-in bath models can be customised to suit your mobility needs and personal taste. Perhaps you’d like extra grab-rails, a particular type of seat or a hydro-therapy spa, or even the option to match the colour to your existing bathroom suite. All good walk-in bath suppliers will have a wide range of optional extras to make your bathing experience truly individual.
How long will my bath take to install?
Once your walk-in bath has been designed and manufactured to your exact specifications, installation usually only takes a day.
