The Art of Relaxation
With health and wellbeing at the forefront of many consumers’ minds, self care and slowing down becomes increasingly important. Allowing time to ‘switch off’ from the business of everyday, puts a spotlight on relaxation. With this, we are beginning to see a shift in attitude towards the bathroom and the function it holds.
As reported by Mintel, 73% of adults agree that bathing/showering is a good way to reduce stress. Moving beyond basic hygiene purposes, bathrooms begin to emulate a place for calm and recuperation, as we begin to carve out time and space for reflection and relaxation.
The bathroom is transforming from a clinical, utilitarian space to an inviting place of self-indulgence that has the ability to lift mood, satisfy the senses and improve wellness. In this post we explore the aesthetic consideration of the bathroom and the ways that it can be used to enhance our emotional and physical cleansing experiences.
With relaxation and wellness on our top priority, we have picked a few of our favourite products to assist you to do just that.
