How much does a Walk in Bath cost?
For those less able, a walk in bath is a welcome addition to their home. Not only does it make is much easier and safer when bathing, but a long relaxing soak can soothe any aches and pains. A walk in bath can bring back your independence in your home.
One of the most commonly asked questions about walk in baths is ‘how much will they cost?’ The answer is not completely straightforward, because the price will depend on certain factors. But before you worry about the cost of a walk in bath, you should first decide which model will be the best fit for you and your bathroom.
For those with smaller bathrooms, a compact walk in bath is no doubt the better option. This is a smaller bath, and much easily fits in a smaller bathroom. To compensate, the bath is often a little deeper, but the quick fill and drainage systems in our walk in baths mean you won’t be sat waiting to have a good long soak. The door on a walk in bath can either open inwards or outwards, so if you lack for space in your bathroom then an inward opening door would be an ideal solution.
If you need the access of a walk-in bath, but would also like the ease of a shower, then there are models of walk in baths with a shower head added. This is the best of both worlds, and it includes a low entry access point, but if you do struggle to sit or bend then a bath lift would be an advisable extra you could purchase.
Some walk-in-baths have a powered bath lift included rather than a low entry access point. This will move to lower you into the bath, and elevate you back up when you need to get out of the bath.
There are added extras that can be included, such as hydrotherapy systems and grab rails, and these should be considered depending on the user’s needs.
The price of the walk-in bath will depend on the model type. Standard baths usually start from around £1000, but walk in baths with powered lifts with often be a little more costly. It would be a good idea to look around different manufacturers and show rooms to get a feel for the range in prices, and you could even visit a walk in bath showroom to view the bath up close.
