Tubs with Doors that Swing In are More Likely to Fit in Your Bathroom If you plan to install your walk in bathtub as part of a bathroom renovation in an older home you may have trouble fitting a tub with an outward-swinging door into the space left by the conventional tub you want to replace. In many homes bathrooms are long and narrow and the bathtub is usually located right across from a plumbing fixture that would be hard to move like a toilet or sink. Walk in tubs with doors that swing outward require about two feet of clearance space outside the tub to open the door completely on top of the extra space they already take up because theyre larger than your old bathtub.
Quality Care and Service One of the most important things to consider is whether the people you are dealing with are patient and understanding of your needs. The process of choosing is made much more worth it when you have kind and knowledgeable staff working for you. When choosing from walk in bathtubs look for any warranty. It is great to have a lifetime warranty for door seals. If you will use your tub every day it is important to have warranty especially on the door in case it gives in and leaks. Many homes are equipped with the standard five foot bathtub. In many cases this compromises a lot of the potential space in the bathroom making it hard to move about. Even if you have a large spacious bathroom small tubs are a great option to consider.

Outward-Swinging Doors Offer the Easiest Access for Handicapped Bathers In many cases outward-swinging doors are easier to enter and exit for people with limited mobility. If the door on your walk in bathtub opens into the tub itself then you will have to maneuver around the door once inside the tub in order to get the door closed behind you. If you have difficulty moving around in tight spaces having to navigate around a door inside your bathtub could be enough of a challenge than an outward swinging door becomes an attractive choice. This can be especially true if you have an injury or disability that makes it difficult to move your hips or knees or if you intend to transfer from a walker or wheelchair into your walk in tub.
