When you are taking the time to design or remodel your bathroom, there are a number of options that you can consider. Which style are you planning to use in your remodelled bathroom? Do you favour Victorian designs or the more contemporary aesthetics? Will you have a larger area to work with, or are you dealing with a relatively small space?
You are likely to consider any one of these aspects during the initial phases of planning out your redesign. However, one very important, but very basic choice you’re going to have to make is baths or showers?
Many people swear by the benefits of baths, and you could even get a shower and bath combination solution.
Benefits Of Taking Baths
Believe it or not, there are physical and mental benefits to taking baths over showers all of the time. The pure act of laying in a warm bath helps to relax the body and soothe the mind. This acts as a miniature retreat from the everyday stresses and hassles of normal life. Taking a bath gives you a set amount of time to be by yourself and not have to worry about anything else.
Furthermore, if you have an injury, taking a bath will relax your muscles and help the healing process begin. Filling the bath with warm water and soaking for 20 minutes will be sure to release the built up tension in your injured muscles.
Whom Taking Baths Can Better Serve
Baths make bathing infants and children much easier. You can wash and rinse the child in a calm bath, without the shock of the water streaming down from the showerhead.
Adults can really benefit from taking showers because of the relaxing and soothing effects discussed earlier. Older people can also see many benefits from taking a shower. Taking a bath, for older people, is safer than taking a shower. Sitting down and washing yourself in a methodical way is much safer than trying to balance on a wet surface.
For all of these reasons, baths are more appealing than showers and if you and remodelling your bathroom then a bathtub would be a great option to consider for completing the bathroom design.
If you are in the market for a new bathroom design or styling your first bathroom, then it is highly suggested that you consider purchasing a bath, or a bath and shower combination. The bath solution has many different benefits that heavily outweigh those of the shower. You will be able to relax and calm yourself after a long day’s work.
The bath will provide a secluded retreat from the stress of everyday issues and problems. If you are ever in need of a way to relax you muscles from an injury, then the bath will help to calm down your muscles.
The bath is safer and easier for bathing infants and children. They’re also a safer option for elderly people in some instances. And, let’s be honest, the right choice of bath can serve as an absolutely wonderful centerpiece in a bathroom.
