4 Reasons Why a Whirlpool Bath Could Be the Best Investment for Your Retirement


There are few better reasons to splash out on some home luxuries than your retirement. If you’re a new retiree, or it’s just around the corner, you might be on the lookout for ways to make the most of your newfound freedom. Well, if it’s luxuries you’re after, it doesn’t get much more indulgent than a whirlpool bath. Need a little more convincing? Here are four reasons why a whirlpool bath is the best choice for your retirement.

4. They’re good for body and soul

There’s nothing quite like immersing yourself in the warm bubbles of a whirlpool bath, but that wonderful feeling is far from the only benefit. Stemming from the concepts of hydrotherapy, whirlpool and spa baths can actually be beneficial both physically and mentally. Whether that’s a reduction in stress hormones, improved blood circulation, or the soothing of skeletomuscular pain, a whirlpool bath is far more than a simple bathtub – making it ideal for retirees (or anyone else!).

3. You don’t have to compromise on design

There was a time that whirlpool bath designs were limited to that classic hot tub or Jacuzzi look. These designs were about all there was available back then – but the days of minimal design choices are long gone. If you’ve not considered a whirlpool bath because you assumed you didn’t have the space, it might be worth taking another look. Modern whirlpool baths are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, including corner baths, double-ended baths, L-shaped tubs, square soaking tubs… the list goes on and on. You’re almost certain to find a whirlpool bath that fits your bathroom.

2. Modern whirlpool baths are low-maintenance

Another preconception some folks have is that whirlpool baths are a hassle to maintain. Again, this is something that simply isn’t true in the modern era. In fact, the regular maintenance of your whirlpool bath can be done with two simple steps: a sanitising tablet that you drop in your tub once you’re done bathing, and then a cleaning fluid that you run through the system for 10 minutes every few months. Doing these simple (and quick) things will keep your whirlpool bath running its best throughout your retirement – and will keep maintenance to a minimum.

1. They're more affordable than ever

Just a decade or so ago, whirlpool baths seemed like the reserve of only the very wealthy: a rare and indulgent product for the super-rich. Well, thanks to improved manufacturing processes and modern materials, whirlpool baths are now more affordable than ever. Rather than setting you back thousands of pounds, you can now enjoy a whirlpool bath at home anytime for as little as £300. Want to push the boat out even further? There are plenty of upgrade options to suit all tastes and budgets. If you’ve always thought whirlpool baths were out of reach, your retirement could very well be the best time to rethink… and relax!
