Flaming June!!

June is upon us but it’s hardly flaming!   It’s Bank Holiday week – and half term.  So of course it’s raining!   We keep being promised a heatwave and the weather forecast does in fact look a bit more promising for next week.   So who knows?!


But assuming we do get some warm weather at some point, many of us may well be looking back at these cool wet days with a hint of longing.  What is that they say about the grass always being greener on the other side!   We want the sunshine but can then feel too hot when it does arrive.


When the warm days do come one of the coolest places to be in your home is your bathroom!   So make your preparations now while you have the chance.   Then when the time comes you can try one or more of these five ways to chill out in your bathroom!

Any shower will do but even better to have a walk in shower or wet room!  That way you can wander in and out until you’re sure you’ve got the temperature just right.   How about this one?   We love the decorative stone work that is somewhat reminiscent of an igloo – which has surely got to help with the chilling process!




Steam away those summer nights

IMG_7715Ironically, sometimes the best way to chill is to heat up!  The old wives tale of hot tea being the best thing to drink on a hot day sounds unlikely but works wonders.  So try indulging yourself in a steam shower.  It will do wonders for your circulation and be of enormous help in regulating your body temperature as well as relaxing you to the core.






Get soaked to the skin

Unwind in whirlwind waters

Experience your own ambience

You bath or shower experience does not have to be passive.  You can make it into a multidimensional experience by combining it with music, television or film.  There are a wide range of multimedia devices that are designed especially for bathrooms and are totally safe to use in a damp environment.
