Turns out that a significant proportion of survey respondents are likely to take showers for relaxation, to escape, to get away, meditate, relieve pain, warm up and eliminate stress. It’s actually noted that showers are a far more affordable alternative to pricey massages. Here’s a valid reason if we ever heard one to consider one of DecorPlanet.com’s fully loaded steam showers!
Now here’s when the whole men are from Mars, women are from Venus thing comes into play. Survey results show that a fair share of men (40 percent) say their dream shower would include more room for significant others. However, women (45 percent) would rather opt for lux options such as ambient music and lighting. To compound this difference of opinion further, it appears that South Atlantic residents are significantly more likely to shower with a significant other (12 percent) than Middle Atlantic residents (a lonely 1 percent). Come on people, what about your civic duty to be eco-stewards with your water usage? (Kidding).
There’s a lot more to those Mars and Venus differences, to be sure. About 40 percent of women say that "My shower is my time for focusing on just me" compared to only 28 percent of men who responded similarly. Plus, four percent of women attest they would rather take a good shower than talk to their significant other.
And in keeping with an affinity for being in control of the TV remote, men and showers also share a common bond. Men change the spray pattern and adjust water flow in the shower far more significantly and more often than women.
Aren’t these results interesting? It’s pretty clear how they could influence design trends and even influence motivations for why we buy what we buy.
