Why 48 Inch Bathtub
On average, soaking tubs start at 60” and go up from there. This size can work well in newer homes, since there is generally more space available. When it comes to remodeling older bathrooms, or if someone needs to take some space out of their bathroom in order to add on to a bedroom, having an option for a smaller tub can be a life-saver. Saving 12” can mean extra space for a wide variety of things.
When it comes to 48” walk-in tubs, they are often perfect for replacing a shower for those who are looking for options to help them age in place. The walk-in design is helpful for people when their mobility needs change or they are worried they may slip or fall when getting in and out of the shower.
