A Pleasurable Bathing Experience
Most people don’t realize how tub technology has changed the way we use our bathing space. When you get home from work do you throw off your shoes, slump down on the couch and put on the “boob tube” in hopes it will take your mind off the trepidations of the day. Well I guess that is one way of dealing with stress. But you know… there is a better way to take a load off. Picture this instead: You get home, undress and head for your bathroom as you step into the bathtub. The tub starts the whirlpool and as you sink into the invigorating water, you are gently massaged by a foot, neck and lumbar massage system.
Touch Equipment at Your Fingertips
You reach over to the digital touch screen panel and turn on your CD/Radio player as the music softly drifts through the speakers and up through the water. Lights in the side panels of your soaking bathtub turns the shimmering water yellow, creating the illusion of bathing in a pool of iridescence sunshine. You begin to think to yourself, life isn’t that bad after all as your body begins to unwind.
Refining the System
Today’s bath basins are no longer lacklustre vessels filled with water; they circulate the liquid, maintain a constant temperature and use the same H2O to massage specific areas of your body. If that isn’t enough, today’s bath innovations can soothe your cares away with music, colored lights, heat therapy and even aromatherapy to calm and stimulate the nervous system. Air jet technology circulates warm air instead of water, which effectively eliminates the possibility of stagnant, bacteria-prone water in your plumbing lines.
Luxury Products With-in Reach
There is a trend in affordable bathroom luxury products becoming more accessible to stressed out homeowners who want to escape, if even temporary, from the hassles of everyday life. Today’s manufactures have heard the cries of consumers and have rolled out pimped-up whirlpools for under a thousand dollars. The master bathroom has transcended from being just a ready-room into a holistic sanctuary outfitted with the latest advances in home spa technology that anybody can enjoy, not just the rich. With everything becoming much more affordable, the hardest part is deciding which model to buy.
Spas are Enjoying a Resurgence
In your home there is usually an item of distinction that creates atmosphere in a room, in the kitchen it’s your appliances, in the living room it’s your home theatre and in the bathroom it’s normally your bathing area. Some professional home decorators have even made the bold statement that modern bathtubs can be likened to an in house entertainment system for your bath. With surround sound music to elevate your emotions in addition to candles and chromatherapy to stimulate healing, you are transported to a place of relaxation for a pleasurable engrossing bathing experience.
Submerge Yourself Completely
People who have switched from traditional bath tubs have declared they would never go back to a static tub. And with the introduction of “airbath” systems, in which air channels deliver a steady flow of warm air bubbles that gently circulate around your body to de-stress your muscles, who would blame them? This technology offers the bather a much gentler soak than the more robust jets of “old school” whirlpool models, not to mention a reduction of monthly maintenance.
An example of this air bath technology is the Kohler – Underscore with its streamlined, unassuming lines and well-defined design. Underscore would fit well into any modern bathroom environment. This is a luxurious deep bath with a slotted overflow drain and gently sloped backrest that allows a comfy, sumptuous soak to submerge you completely. This deep soaker offers a range of hydrotherapy options, with BubbleMassage and whirlpool models providing the bather pleasurable effervescent bubbles that target and soothe your sore muscles.
Achieve Your Bliss
Bath technology has not only made our washrooms more user-friendly but has also reduced the cost of bathware making it easier to get into the houses of everyday home owners. While it is true that you don’t need a tub with bells and whistles to enjoy a good soak, it’s hard to dispute the pleasure that modern tub technology adds to the bathing experience. Make time for yourself and “get your bliss on!” Take a look at what is out there, it’s more affordable than ever before.
