The presentation you worked on for months was not well received, due perhaps to the fact that your dog barked throughout most of it because he had to go out. When that did not happen, he peed at the front door. Imagine if after a day like this, that you could have a few minutes all to yourself, devoid of texts, tweets, smart phones and even other family members? How great would it be to have a space where you could simply relax and wash away the stresses of the day? You don’t have to dream any longer. Upgrading the primary bath provides homeowners an opportunity to create an in-home refuge that not only adds value to your home, but enhances the quality of your life.

A high performing shower can feature a steam systems that sooths tired muscles, rejuvenates your skin and eliminates toxins from your body. The health and wellness benefits of steam go back centuries where Roman and Greek hot baths became the world’s first spas. A high performing shower in the primary bath can also feature different therapies – sound (music), light (chromatherapy) and scent (aromatherapy). Each and a combination of all three serve to recharge your batteries and provide a sense of calm and wellbeing. Multiple showerheads, body sprays and hand showers help to complete a high-performing shower.

Double the pleasure of using your primary bath by having dual sinks. Many of our clients have “Ah ha” moments when we introduce smart mirrors with 3D scanners, multispectral cameras and gas sensors to assess the health of the person looking into them. These mirrors examine a person’s face, look at fatty tissue, facial expressions and how flushed or pale a person’s skin is. Facial recognition software in smart mirrors can identify signs of stress or anxiety. Gas sensors serve as breathalyzers to determine how much someone may drink or smoke. Mirror scanners that analyze face shapes can identify weight gain or loss and multispectral cameras in smart mirrors read heart rates or hemoglobin levels. The sensors in smart mirrors can tell homeowners how healthy they are and offer guidance to improve health.
In addition to high-performance features for a primary bath, there also needs to be adequate storage that can be provided by a linen closet, open shelving or vanity shelves and drawers.
