Make your bathroom a retreat for holistic living


In holistic living, all things are interconnected, which means home design has a big influence on health and wellness. One room where every household member can benefit from the art of holistic living is the bathroom. With some strategic upgrades to the decor, fixtures and appliances, it’s easy to transform a bland space into a grand oasis of relaxation within the home.
The power of color – Studies show certain colors can enhance energy and mood, while others are known for their calming qualities. For example, people go to a spa for rest and relaxation, and you’ll notice many are colored in blues, browns, greens or deep reds. You won’t traditionally find bright colors, which would be too energetic for a place of respite. So for your bathroom remodel, select colors that soothe to begin your healthy home transformation.
Comfort you can feel – In the bathroom, quality towels, bath rugs and flooring are must-have components of a well-rounded holistic space. You’ll know you are giving yourself and your family the best when you upgrade these items to high-quality organic or natural fabrics and materials. Some in-demand upgrades to make your bathroom an upscale indulgence include heated flooring and towel warmers so you never need to experience a chill after a deep soak.
Relaxation you want to experience – Take “me time” to a whole new level when, for example, you install the DTV+ advanced showering system that creates a wonderful mood. It has pre-programmed spa experiences that target well-being, relaxation and energy developed by Kohler’s Waters Spa, so you know you’re getting a true spa experience right at home.
You can quickly install an ESSIO aromatherapy shower diffuser as easy as installing a quick attachment arm onto your shower pipe. Taking out a pod of your choice of aromatherapy, tilt into water stream and it diffuses essential oils. There isn’t a spa around that smells better than your bathroom will!
Add some artesan soaps and perhaps a deep cleansing brush with rotating bristles to give yourself a facial, like the NuSonic face & body cleansing tool. Stock the new escape/bathroom with plush towels: extra big and extra plush. Put up great shelves (and choose them carefully to go with the flow of the retreat that you are creating) stock them with a great varity of exfolliants, facial masks and candles.
Add some soothing qualities you can hear – Complete the holistic bathroom experience by adding relaxing music. Pre-program your sound system with classical, Eastern, meditation or nature-style music to help you escape the grind. As you’re planning your bathroom redesign, install speakers to create a surround-sound experience, especially in the shower area. Set it up for wireless control, in case you decide you need to change what’s playing in the middle of your shower.
