That’s right – bathtubs with seats can even be used and enjoyed safely by kids! This is a posture that will not put too much stress on your joints and knees that usually have to put in a lot of work to sit all the way down on the floor of the tub and then stand up. And yes, this position allows users to manage personal hygiene much better, making hard-to-reach and clean parts of the body all the more easier to maintain.
Bathtubs with seats are also good because they are make the bathroom a much safer place for you to be in. Stepping over the bathtub wall can be a slip or fall hazard, even for a young individual with normal motor skills. Bathtubs with seats come equipped with a handy door that one can simply open to walk in or out of the bathing area, just like one would on any other flat surface. The tub floor in these bathroom fixtures are also made to be textured to prevent slipping accidents. And if you are looking for a little extra luxury, you can always choose to buy a bathtub with a seat that has built-in Jacuzzi and hydrotherapy features!
