Ella’s Bubbles was voted the top brand for walk-in tubs in 2021
The concept of making a home more accessible to all has gained traction as more people express a desire to age in place. Installing a walk-in tub and shower combination is a great way to make your home more accessible, safe, and comfortable. The walk-in tub and shower combo has become increasingly popular, as an alternative to the traditional bathtub. The reason for this is that they offer many benefits and reduce many risks and issues associated with conventional bathtubs.
It might seem odd that something that offers so many advantages over a standard tub would take up so much space. It is true…many walk-in tubs are surprisingly compact and can easily fit into the space occupied by a typical bathtub. You can also make the most of your bathroom space by combining a walk-in tub and shower into one structure! You can make room for a large walk-in tub and shower combo if you remove both your traditional bathtub and your shower stall. You will be able to bathe and shower independently. This is perfect for households with multiple generations living together. Those who need a quick shower can easily stand in the footwell of the walk-in tub, as opposed to sitting in the seat.
Unlike a standard bathtub, a walk-in tub features a low entry step, a comfortable upright seat, safety grab bars, and a textured floor for people with reduced mobility. Most walk-in tub and shower combos include a rain shower, so users don’t have to take a bath. Instead of relying on someone’s help or spending hours a day bathing, they can sit comfortably while taking a quick shower.
When you have reduced mobility, you probably don’t want to spend too much time cleaning multiple bathroom fixtures like walk-in tubs or shower stalls. You will spend less time cleaning a walk-in tub and shower combo unit rather than separate bathing and showering fixtures. Most walk-in shower fixtures are straightforward to clean and only need to be wiped with a cleaner once a week, as well as sprayed with a handheld sprayer after a bath. When you can’t bend to scrub a traditional bathtub, less maintenance is always a good thing.
A unique feature of the Ella Shower Column Kit is the oversized 10″ rain shower. The column kit connects to a diverter on an Ella brand 2 Piece Faucet or 5 Piece Faucet set in order to create an extended overhead shower. Columns finished in stainless steel and chrome can be easily adjusted up to 7 feet tall. Located along the column is a vertically movable, multi-functional hand shower with five modes. An oversized rain shower is attached to the top which can be directed with ease to the seat for a seated shower and the footwell for a stand-up shower. The walk-in tub and shower combo eliminates the need for a wall-mounted showerhead in your walk-in bathtub. Ella’s shower combo kit includes a powerful showerhead with five spray patterns that can range from a gentle spray to a highly concentrated setting for a great massage feeling. With this feature, you can enjoy the feeling of a traditional shower without having to install a tub and shower separately.
