Let’s consider what takes us out of the hurried life — is it a fab whirlpool soaking tub, a mirror embedded with a TV or a multi-jet shower panel easily shared by two, or is it a dressing room/bath combo with a Hollywood cachet? There are lots of ways to unwind thanks to more innovative products with affordable price tags.
Open, airy and larger than ever. Lux in the bathroom is spelled s-h-o-w-e-r! Making the bath space an oversized shower wall-less shower stall is a European aesthetic now being emulated nationwide. However, when that’s not a feasible way to go — what continues to be the ultra spa alternative are fully loaded steam showers with the likes of ceiling rain showers, multiple shower jets, body sprays and even foot massages.
We’re happy to report that taking a tub is still trending high. Indeed, there’s nothing quite like soaking in a bath with soothing heat and powerful jets. While it’s a must for the master bath, designers also suggest including a Whirlpool tub as an addition to the guest room bath — a real asset for privacy for friends and visiting relatives. The plus to this — besides wowing all — is that it will substantially increase the resale value of your home. Note to self: Making home renovation additions for an enhanced lifestyle is hot for pampering and property investment!
