Home with young children and the elderly will definitely benefit from this! With space at premium, removing your bathtub will create a more spacious bathroom area that’s accessible for all. Installing a bathtub may be limiting for those handicapable, as it limits their accessibility to the shower area. Young children may also find it difficult to enter the bathtub due to the height of the tub.
- Fuss-Free Cleaning
Cleaning a bathtub can get slightly awkward due to the hard-to-reach areas, such as the corners of the bathtub.
