now its personal
In this age of wireless connectivity and instant messaging, there’s no place where we can truly be “alone”. That can be a scary thought if you are, like me, the sort who values your privacy and cherishes those moments of silent contemplation. Furthermore, owing to the open nature of modern home interiors, it is a challenge to find a spot where you can get away from it all.
Perhaps that is why homeowners are changing their impression of the bathroom, from being a purely functional cleaning zone into the last frontier where privacy is still of paramount importance. Because of that, there is a growing focus on good bathroom design and emphasis on turning it into a comfortable sanctuary, where you can not only freshen up your body, but recharge your soul as well.
I recently installed a rain showerhead with a waterproof speaker in my bathroom, and shower time for me has become thoroughly enjoyable. Feeling the generous drops of water gently massaging my scalp, accompanied by the soothing strains of jazz, is a treat for the senses, and something I look forward to at the end of the day.
Truth be told, it’s these small daily rituals we perform that help to keep us balanced in body, spirit and mind. So if it’s been a while since you last revamped your bathroom, this might be a good time to see how you can create your own oasis of calm. Have fun, and we’ll see you again in October.
