Why walk-in tubs?
For homeowners with limited mobility, a walk-in tub can increase a bathroom’s safety and functionality. These tubs have a watertight door that allows the user to step in over a very low threshold. Once the door closes, the tub fills up with water.
Most walk-in tubs also have safety features including handle grips, anti-slip surfaces, and anatomical seating, all of which help mitigate the risk of fall-related injuries. Because of this, walk-in tubs are great for seniors.
Pros and cons of walk-in tub bathroom remodel
Are you beginning to experience joint stiffness and pain? Or are you caring for an elderly loved one? If so, a walk-in tub bathroom remodel may be a wise investment. However, before making a renovation decision, first weigh the advantages and downsides of a walk-in tub.
- Deeper water depth than typical tub
- ADA-compliant design
- Decreases the risk of fall-related injuries
- Luxury features such as water jets
- More expensive than standard tub
- Risk of flooding if door doesn’t latch
- Time-consuming to fill and drain
- Cannot test water temperature before entering tub
Types of walk-in tubs
Though all walk-in tubs are designed to increase the functionality of your bathroom, no two are alike. Some have massaging jets while others have features specific to the needs of seniors.
With so many options to choose from, selecting a walk-in tub for your bathroom remodel can be challenging. To help you navigate this decision, we have rounded up three of the most popular types of walk-in tubs:
Walk-in tubs for elderly
For residents with limited mobility, climbing into a slippery tub can be dangerous. To help these homeowners age with dignity, manufacturers offer a host of walk-in tubs for the elderly. These tubs have safety features like grab bars and anti-slip flooring. They also have a very low threshold to prevent falling.

Jacuzzi walk-in tubs
These luxury walk-in tubs come with warm air massage systems, bubble jets, and LED lighting. Both practical and stylish, these tubs are the perfect place to unwind after a hard day at work.
Walk-in tubs with shower
Some homeowners want the safety features of a walk-in tub. However, they don’t necessarily want to take a bath every day. For these individuals, Everhart Construction can install a walk-in tub with a shower. These bathroom additions have the same style as a traditional walk-in tub, just with a glass shower door and showerhead.

The cost of bathroom remodel with walk-in tubs
When homeowners hire Everhart Construction to make a bathroom more accessible, their first question is: “How much do walk-in tubs cost?”
Though the cost to install a walk-in tub depends on the model you select, you can expect to pay between $4,000 to $10,000. The rest of your bathroom remodel will cost between $10,000 and $30,000.
Are the costs covered by Medicare?
Since walk-in tubs aren’t considered durable medical equipment by Medicare, financial assistance typically isn’t offered. However, seniors with Medicare Advantage may be able to obtain funding through the program’s supplemental benefits.
