How to Create a Rejuvenating Environment in Your Bathroom
Bathrooms are no longer utilitarian in nature. They have deep purposes in our crazy world. You can create a better and healthful environment by incorporating some of these products into your bathroom:
Steam is not only an environment maker it has health benefits. The company, Mr. Steam has some excellent steam shower units. They help with sore achy muscles, allergies, clearer skin and relaxation to name a few. Another feature that has been introduced is an aromatherapy feature. It is piped into the system and works on a timer or on demand. I sat in on an a really amazing presentation on this product line with the Vice President of Marketing, Martha Orellana .
Another good thing going about their units is that you can plan it online and it's no extra set up with the plumber, the generator unit depends on the size of the shower and it needs to be 60’ from the actual shower in a heated space with 12” around for venting.
Check out their video, it really makes you want to relax, doesn’t it?
Below you can see a before and after with the steam system. The unit is streamlined and good looking. To enjoy the full experience, taking the enclosure to the ceiling is beneficial. You can include a vent, but it is not needed. They also recommend no more than a ceiling height of 8’.
Now we are heating up!! Another thing to consider are your finishes in your bathroom. I hear so many good things about copper and this bathtub from Thompson Traders is no exception. Not only is very stylish and sleek, but it helps with your skin!! It helps produce collagen, it is also said to be anti inflammatory. Double Whammy!!! I fell in love with this product line and family behind their products.
All of their products are artisan made in Mexico Like this beautiful sink seen below.
Another good thing to incorporate into your space are live elements. Things that help purify the air like plants. They circulate oxygen, look pretty and reduce airborne dust levels. Each plant has different properties. The peace lily actually removes mold from the air. They have done so many studies on this subject. I encourage you to look at this article for some great information on this subject: Importance of Plants in your Home
Lighting and chromatherapy are very important in creating an environment as well. Chromatherapy is the use of colors to promote relaxation. It is a powerful way to achieve balance and harmony through it’s vibrations. It can calm or energize you. Lighting really helps create a mood or environment in general. Having your system on dimmers are a great way to relax and unwind. Mr. Steam also uses chromatherapy in some of their products.
Are you ready to create an environment? These simple suggestions will take your everyday bathroom and transform it. The senses are key here and when you realize the benefits you’ll want to treat yourself!!
