A Cure For The Common Cold

Posted by Krista Payne on Dec 14, 2010 6:49:15 AM

It’s that time of year again when everyone begins to experience stuffy noses and scratchy throats. The sneezing, coughing and even fever and headache that accompany the common cold can bring anyone down.

To beat the blues of the common cold, we recommend taking a long hot soak. A bath soak is relaxing and can provide stress relief, alleviate sleeping problems, and even lower blood pressure. Hydrotherapy or balenotherapy, is the use of water in various states and temperatures to maintain health and promote healing. Immersing yourself in warm water calms your internal organs and endocrine system because it stimulates the nerves on the spinal cord.

Designing A Powder Room

The early Victorians called the small bathroom a powder room because it provided a place for women to remove the shine from (or powder) their noses. Today we mostly call them half baths. No matter what you call it the powder room can be the most challenging room in the house to decorate, but is can also be the one of the most fun designs in a house too.

Stylish & Relaxing Soaking Baths

Posted by Krista Payne on Oct 26, 2010 3:43:03 AM

It would appear that more and more homeowners are opting to have walk-in showers instead of traditional bathtubs, but a shower can not replace the healing and the relaxing properties of a long soak in a tub. Which is why many of those same homeowners are trading in their traditional corner or freestanding porcelain tubs for deep soaking baths. The deep soaking baths allow the users to sink their whole body into the bath, and unwind either in a reclined or upright position.

Enjoy The Spa Experience At Home

Posted by Krista Payne on Oct 14, 2010 8:52:06 AM

With all of the resources and technology available today, more and more homeowners are opting to indulge in the spa experience from the comfort and privacy of their own bathroom. With the help of Elle Décor and the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) we examined new products and design ideas to develop tips to help you transform your ordinary bathroom into an extraordinary luxury spa.

  • When it comes to soaking up the spa experience, Elle Décor recommends using freestanding tubs, because they free up floor space for a beautiful piece of furniture or a towel rack.
  • Consider adding air jets to the tub, unlike traditional targeted water spas, newer jets have a range of sensations from delicate fingers to a more intense rushing mountain stream sensation.
  • Find a show that will simulate the spas experience – Steam showers relax tired muscles, energize the body and invigorates the mind.
  • The NKBA suggests adding design elements like, “vessel sinks, LED lighting for ceiling, walls, and even floors, take your personal spa to a higher level. With so many choices and options, homeowners often have difficulty in deciding what products to choose. That’s where a professional designer comes in. They have access to a wider variety of designs that can simplify your research and guide you through the process.”
  • Go beyond the basic candles, oils and pick up a showerhead that allows you to add essential oils for aromatherapy.
  • Lastly enhance your experience with music - purchasing a water proof speak to place in or near your shower or tub.
