Here we are at the beginning of a new year and you've likely made incredible strides on resolutions to live healthier and take better care of yourself. Whether you're exercising more, meditating, or just waking up earlier, it's the time of year to refocus your energy. While many people think of a bathroom remodel simply in terms of home value or convenience, it can be a major improvement to your healthy living journey. The right bathroom will not only support your new goals but also create a comfortable space for self-care.
One bathroom renovation that can help you on this new path is the addition of a whirlpool tub. These tubs are ergonomically designed for comfort and feature high-volume jets that massage and soothe your muscles. Because your entire body can be immersed in warm water, you'll get a boost in circulation which encourages relaxation. Sprinkle in a bit of Epsom salt and ease tension in your stiff joints—whirlpool tubs are built just for this.
While many people simply enjoy soaking in a bath, did you know it can have health benefits? Regular hot baths can lower blood pressure according to a recent study conducted by the University of Oregon. Steamy showers can also open up your pores, flushing out toxins and dirt that may have built up during a hard day. Even so, don't underestimate the power of a cold shower, which many grumpy people claim is better than a cup of coffee for waking up. A tub shower combo is ideal for taking advantage of these temperature techniques. Keep this in mind when planning your bathroom renovation so you can reap the benefits of both a bathtub and a shower.
Healthy living also means making safety a priority. Rushing around in the morning can make bathrooms a high-risk space for accidents. Prevent a slip and fall by installing grab bars in key areas such as the shower or bathtub and near toilets. Low-threshold showers and entryways also increase mobility for everyone, not just older members of your family. Safe bathrooms are our top priority and each time we help a homeowner improve their bathroom, it's always at the forefront of planning.
