How much are walk in bath tubs?
People often ask us how much walk- in baths cost and why there aren’t any prices on our website. The answer is simple: our Assistive Bathing options are made specifically for you and your bathroom, so prices vary.
The price of an Assistive Bathing walk in bath tub varies by size, style and any other accessories and extras you want to add:
Type of walk in bath tub
Assistive Bathing provide a number of different styles of walk in baths, including baths for smaller spaces and walk in baths suitable for those with disabilities…
Our most popular walk in tub, The Danube, is also one of the most affordable. Its sleek size means it comfortably fits in even the smallest bathrooms. Add to this the safety and sheer comfort of the non-slip floor and integrated seat and you’ll be more than pleased you chose this bath every time you have one.
Alternatively, a powered seat walk in bath tub, such as The Hudson, is an excellent option for those with more complex disabilities and those who need extra assistance when using the bath. As it uses more sophisticated technology and connection to an electricity source, these walk in bath tubs will be more expensive.
Cost of Installation
The cost of installation can also vary substantially.
Moving waste and taps will make installation more expensive. To keep costs down, consider sticking to your existing bath’s size and position within your bathroom.
Alternatively, look for companies who offer free installation, like Assistive Bathing, for one less cost and hassle to worry about.
To make sure your new walk in bath is properly installed, Assistive Bathing thoroughly check your space for suitability. They will assess your water system is able to meet the needs of the particular walk in bath you deserve, avoiding any issues with drainage further down the line.
Once you have chosen the type of walk in tub you would like, its time to decide on a number of finishing touches from our comprehensive collection to personalise your bathroom.
You can personalise your new accessible bathroom it with a number of optional extras including:
- Shower Screen
- Pop up waste- to quickly drain the bath
- Belt seat option
- Sensory Pack (containing Air Spa system, LED light system and 14 chrome jets)
Please ask your consultant for more information on the full range.
