The Bathroom Spa

In the past, bathrooms were considered places of pure functionality. However, in more recent times the bathroom has assumed a place as one of the most important rooms in the home. Indeed, apart from the kitchen, the bathroom is probably the place where we spend most of our time.

No wonder then, that more and more attention is being paid to making the bathroom design a refuge from the trials of modern day living.

The rise in popularity of the bathroom spa exemplifies this trend. House owners are increasingly utilising any spare space in the house to enlarge the bathroom and turn it into a luxury area in which to thoroughly relax after a busy day. Indeed, many homeowners view a refurbished bathroom as an investment and one that will pay a good return if and when the property is sold.

Interior designers and bathroom appliance manufacturers have been quick to spot the trend. Virtually every day, new appliances are launched onto the market. Innovations such as the steam sauna, state-of-the-art bathroom sinks and toilets, baths in every shape and hue, underfloor bathroom heating and invisible ventilation systems, have all made their appearance and been quickly absorbed into the mainstream.

In essence, the vision is to turn the once humble bathroom into a luxurious spa. Where once you would only encounter such opulence in a 5-star hotel, new technology and design has completely transformed the way we use and see the bathroom. Today, homeowners from all walks of life have been quick to embrace the trend.
