Installing a senior tub will depend on three things: the kind of accessibility it will deliver, the size of the bathroom, and if the installation will be part of a remodeling project.

Accessibility: Not all walk-in tubs are wheelchair-accessible. You should see the tub before purchasing and installing it to get a clear picture of where and how it would be installed. If you are particularly immobile and need as much aid in seat-to-seat transfer as possible, a tub that supports lateral access is the ideal pick. The method of accessibility influences the method of installation to some degree. There are corner-installed tubs that are wheelchair-accessible, but those do not support direct lateral access.

Bathroom size plays a role in determining the style of installation, size, and method of access of the tub. If you can stand on your own two feet and your bathroom is too small for a traditional sized walk-in tub, many models are available that do not require a large area and can be installed in a corner while providing enough legroom.

Remodeling: With so many designs and sizes to choose from, you can incorporate a model that enhances the overall appearance of your bathroom. An alcove installation of a walk-in tub, for example, gives you the freedom to decorate the surrounding walls of the unit and spice it up.

1. Apron Front Installation

An apron front installation is reserved for alcove zones in the bathroom where the entryway of the tub stands parallel to the back wall. This side-to-wall style of installation is normally suited for walk-in tubs that have three sides uncovering the leveling legs of the tub. The linear space between the wall and walk-in tub is sealed shut to control the flow of splashing water and prevent mold growth from forming underneath the tub.

2. Tile-In Installation

Tile-in walk-in tubs are best reserved for bathrooms with little space to spare. This benefits you not only by smaller models being less expensive, but also by packing many therapeutic features in a small space, and increasing the asking price of your home in the process.

3. Freestanding Installation

Sometimes, installed similarly to apron front models, freestanding models can be situated anywhere in the bathroom if a water line can be extended to them. This makes them especially flexible and generous towards homeowners who are unsure of where their tub should go.

Portable walk-in tubs, for instance, give users the freedom to place the unit where it’s more accessible to them. They’re ideal for situations where the user does not own the home, isn’t allowed to remodel, and has plans of relocating in the future.

4. Top Mount Installation

Are you looking to replace your old shower stall? The top mount method of installation is the way to go. Reserved solely for roll-in showers, the top mount style can take an alcove area and turn it into a wheelchair-friendly showering environment for handicapped seniors or veterans who need to regain their bathing independence.
