Bathrooms are an integral part of every home. Not just for showering and brushing our teeth, the humble bathroom is where we can shake off the stresses of each day. They can also help us to achieve a healthier and more relaxed lifestyle.
Below are some of our top tips to help you make the most of your bathroom by creating a place of wellness for you and your family in your own home.
Having or installing a bath can be a great addition to a healthy lifestyle.
Not only does immersing one’s body in warm water provide a mental respite and can help to reduce stress, it is also a proven method of physical therapy too.
If you visit the gym often, or play regular sports, baths can be a great way to alleviate joint stiffness, inflammation, and pain.
Additional benefits of having a bath include improved sleep, better circulation, and healthier skin. Some studies even indicate a hot bath burns calories!
For an extra kick to your wellness routine, add some essential oils or Epsom salts to your bath water before you take a soak.
Like baths, spas provide an array of physical and mental health benefits.
They are a luxury upgrade to the standard inset or freestanding bath, and there is no better way to create an indulgent feel in your home than by installing one.
Spa bath jets can be propelled by either water or air. Typically water propelled jets provide a massaging effect and help to target muscular aches and pains. Air propelled jets are used to create a lighter, more energizing and “bubbly’’ feel, and they can be a great way to help maintain circulation and vascular health. Many spa baths on the market currently offer products that incorporate both jet options.
For a truly luxurious experience, opt for upgrades like a headrest, remote control operation, LED lighting, or a heat booster pump.
Due to the intricate ordering process of spas, we don’t sell these through our web shop. Please get in touch with us, and we’ll be able to assist you with options and pricing.
Lighting is an important aspect to almost any home, and really helps to set the tone and mood of a room.
A large window allowing plenty of natural daylight to enter the bathroom is ideal. However, if your bathroom has a small or no window – cooler toned lighting might be the preferred choice. This can aid in manual tasks like applying makeup, cleaning, or shaving.
To help create a place of relaxation and wellness however, the use of dimmable lighting in the bathroom can go a long way.
If you are unable to upgrade your current lighting however, candles can be used to create the same soft and relaxing effect.
There is nothing more soothing on frayed nerves than to relax in a bath surrounded by a warm glow.
Whether you are a man or a woman, adopting a morning and evening grooming ritual in your bathroom can become a moment of regeneration for you each and every day.
Whether you opt for a beautifully scented body wash, or something that is natural and nourishing to the skin, showering and bathing can be a way to symbolically wash away your stress. We can assist you with finding your perfect shower match!
For some people, the few minutes they get in the shower can be the only ‘me time’ they get all day. Creating a nourishing self-care ritual can go a long way to helping you maintain optimal mental and physical health, for both yourself and your family. After all, when you take care of yourself, you can do more for others too.
No matter what your bathroom is like, the most important aspect to creating a wellness space in your own home is time alone. Obviously for many people this is easier said than done. By creating time in our day to practice self-care however, we are helping to increase our longevity and the overall quality of our lives. Next time you’re in the shower, or having a bath, take a moment to simply relax, and breathe.
