When it comes to bathroom remodels, one of the main decisions you have to make is whether you want a bathtub or shower for your space, and with accessibility and comfort in mind, a lot of people veer toward the former.

It’s no secret that having a walk-in tub will make independent bathing safer and more comfortable for anyone living with any variety of mobility issues. Now there’s a way to make it even better with a shower upgrade kit

So, what are these upgrade kits? To put it simply, they are a showerhead that you can add to your existing bathtub, so you can enjoy the benefits of both a bath and shower.

These shower kits feature chrome-plated construction, 28” slider bar, four sleeve-mount brackets, chrome rain showerhead and diverter, and a 60” hose. Additionally, you can add a curtain rod to contain the water and offer more privacy.

While it may already seem obvious why you would want this addition to your walk-in tub, we’re going to briefly go over the top benefits, so you can have all the information on your side before you start your own project. 

Let’s dive in. 


For starters, having a bathtub with an attached showerhead is incredibly convenient. You’ll be able to sit comfortably in the bathtub, enjoying the seat and whirlpool jets while also having access to either a handheld showerhead or rain shower head. This will speed up your overall time in the bath and ensure your maximum comfort at the same time. You’ll be able to enjoy:

  • Rain Showerhead
  • Handheld Showerhead
  • Safety Grab Bars
  • Easy-to-Reach Controls
  • Comfortable Seating
  • Hydrotherapeutic Jets

…and more!


One of the biggest benefits of having a shower is efficiency. Some days a long soak in the tub seems like the perfect scenario while other days you want to get in and out quickly. With a walk-in tub and attached showerhead, you’ll be able to do either depending on your mood and schedule. 


At their core, walk-in tubs make bathing safer for anyone living with limited mobility. Add a handheld showerhead to the mix, and you can enjoy all the benefits of a modern shower without having to stand for any period of time. We go above and beyond to make sure all controls are easy to reach as well, so you’re not ever having to fumble with anything while you’re bathing.
