In today’s economy where money is tight luxuries are the first thing we think we have to give up….maybe not. When the going gets tough it is time to get creative! The time of excess may be over but we still need to find ways to keep some simple pleasures going in our life for personal balance and wellness.
Whatever type of home you live in there a ways to modify your bathroom. These little changes can give you that same sense of relaxation and of feeling of pampered that normally you would pay to get by going to a day spa. With a little imagination and creativity you can have this in your own home bathroom to use as often as you like. By creating a “mood” and installing affordable tub and shower fixtures. The only other thing you need to do is make sure you take the time for your self to use it and enjoy it!
Yes, we need functional bathrooms however, a lost cost way to create a relaxing mood and luxury atmosphere is to paint the walls a soothing color, place a small radio or CD player in the bathroom to play some cool jazz or other relaxing music of your choice and you may want to convert you regular light switch to a dimmer type. Install a few new tub and/or shower faucets or sprayers and you will be ready to shut out the world, close the door, dim the lights and light some scented candles
For those that enjoy a soak in the tub treat your self to either a hot bubble or mineral bath and just lay there and relax listening to some soft music as the business and sounds of every day life fade away. By now you must be curious about what I mean by affordabe plumbing fixtures that you will need for your bathroom conversion. Well, some very low cost luxury fixtures that can enhance you bathing experience for those with a Clawfoot Bath Tub is to install a Clawfoot Tub faucet with a hand held shower piece. Some of our very affordable Clawfoot Tub Faucets can be install on the wall of the tub or the bathroom wall over a jacuzzi or regular tub for those who want an all in one tub filler and a hand held shower. If you have a Roman Tub we offer Roman Tub Fillers with matching Hand held showers handles or a waterfall faucet as seen on our eBay store for our best price. However the handle held features are so nice for rinsing your self off after a salts, mineral or bubble bath.
An alternative to the tub experience is to create a Spa Shower. You will want to get some shower gels, oils and to install a large Rain Drop, Sun Flower or a Hand Held 5 setting pulsating massage spray . It is very soothing and relaxing standing under and showering with one of these types of fixtures. For those that prefer a shower to a bath nothing like a hot shower to wash away the cares of the day, warm your soul and relax you.
The art of resting the mind, and relaxing the body and the power of dismissing from it all care and worry is one of the secrets of re-gaining strength, energy and vitality.
