Therapeutic Bathtubs

Therapeutic bathtubs have multiple benefits

  • Perhaps they are elderly and have difficulty stepping in and out of a normal height tub. This can be risky and unsafe, given the slippery wet floors.
  • Maybe they have arthritis or other ailment that needs relief from the ability to sit and soak comfortably. Sometimes bending all the way down and getting back up with a traditional tub can cause further pain, rather than relieving it.
  • A person with a physical disability that impairs them from actually being able to step over and into a regular bathtub would appreciate the benefits of a therapeutic tub.

Why can a therapeutic bathtub benefit you?

  • They are built with a bench or seat
  • Allows for a full body soak in a comfortable position
  • Eliminates the need to lower oneself all the way to the floor for a soak
  • There is a swinging door for easy access into the tub
    • The door opens into the tub allowing the person room to sit down and then easily close the door comfortably
    • The door seals completely to prevent leaking
  • There is a conveniently located grab bar for maneuverability while adjusting to sitting and/or standing positions
Leone Plumbing installed one of these beneficial tubs for a customer in need while remodeling their entire bathroom. We also installed a grab bar and a larger vanity with mirror to create a far more functional and therapeutic bathroom experience!

Beautiful Bathroom Remodel

   

During the late 1980’s, whirlpool tubs with smaller showers were quite popular as a therapeutic way to relax or relieve joint and muscle pains. However, these days, people have found that they lack the time to use a whirlpool as it was intended in this fast-paced world. Additionally, with the amount of space that whirlpools take up, many feel they aren’t very practical or comfortable in most bathrooms.

A local Rochester, New York area couple decided that their master bathroom was simply no longer practical or functional. In this case, the whirlpool took up most of the space leaving a 36-inch space for a shower. They reached out to the Leone for help to design an elegant, fully functional master bath.

We were able to re-design the bathroom incorporating a large, more comfortable shower complete with bench and large recessed niche to hold plenty of product from tall to short. We were also able to incorporate a much larger vanity with two sinks and two mirrors with plenty of counter space in-between for all their needs.

Some of the work performed to reach this customers’ goals were:

  • Remove existing shower and whirlpool tub
  • Relocate plumbing as needed to eliminate the tub and add a walk-in shower
  • Relocate toilet, vanity and drain for shower to accommodate new layout
  • Install one GFI outlet for vanity
  • Build custom walk-in shower
  • Install new vanities – one dual sink with double mirrors for the couple, one sinkless vanity to be used as the make-up area
  • All new tiling, flooring, and paint throughout
  • An additional cabinet for linen and make up storage

By the time the work was completed, the customers now had an extremely functional master bath! As a bonus, we were even able to incorporate a matching free-standing linen cabinet for additional storage. Together with the espresso finish and brushed nickel for all the matching pieces, this fully functional bathroom became a work of art!

I had Leone plumbing come fix a leak at my restaurant and the plumber Jameson was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and walked us through the entire process from start to finish. He also went above and beyond and cleaned up after himself. Thank you Leone plumbing! I would def recommend their service!
