Make your bathroom a sanctuary this World Bathing Day

Return to the Powder Room
To celebrate World Bathing Day on June the 22nd, we’ve collated some of our favourite baths and tips on how to create the ultimate day spa experience in your home. With winter in full force, there’s no better time to relax and soak away your tensions.
This year is the first global celebration of World Bathing Day. This annual celebration was inspired by the benefits of hot spring bathing and the powerful effects that thermal mineral water has on the body.
For those of us not lucky enough to be able to retreat to a hot spring in time for June 22, why not run a luxurious bath at home?
The statement piece: a freestanding bath
If you are considering the addition of a bathtub in your new home or renovation but don’t know where to start, don’t fret. If you have the luxury of space, your choices are limitless, and all that needs to be decided is the style and whether the bath is freestanding or inset.
A freestanding bath is a great option for creating a relaxing day spa feeling in your own bathroom. LAUFEN’s freestanding baths are true statement pieces, with quality and design at the heart of every product to provide the epitome of luxury in the bathroom. Upholding phenomenal quality is the Kado collection of freestanding baths. This collection has been designed to bring the benefits of hotel luxury to the comfort of your own home. There's even a petite range for bathrooms with space limitations.
The multi-tasker: an inset with a day spa ambiance
For those with a growing family, an inset bath may be a more ideal selection for the bathroom. However, choosing an inset bath doesn’t need to mean sacrificing an elegant look or a day spa feel in the bathroom. The key here is to accessorise appropriately and invest in quality bathroom storage solutions to avoid clutter in and around the bathtub. This may mean incorporating a vanity with sufficient doors and drawers, a tall boy, or a mirror cabinet. This will keep mess and clutter such as children’s toys, toiletries and other bathroom products out of sight, leaving space for your favourite collection of candles, flowers and bath salts to accentuate the mood.
The little things that make bathtime extra special
Think about your favourite day spa and what makes it feel extra luxe and special. Perhaps it’s the fluffy bathtowels, a vase of beautiful blossoms, or a scented candle that makes you feel relaxed. Or maybe it’s bath salts or a warm bathrobe to snuggle up in when you’re finished soaking.
Channel these feelings to set the scene in your own home. Switch on a heated towel rail like the Kado Aspect Swivel Heated Towel Rail for a warm embrace as soon as you step out of the tub. Get comfortable with your favourite Netflix series with the Mizu Bliss iPad Holder, specially designed to endure wet areas, or truly whisk yourself away with relaxing music through the ADP Silex Bluetooth Mirror.
Bathing for a good cause
World Bathing Day is more than just an event celebrating the therapeutic effects of bathing, but also a movement to bring light to individuals in developing countries who do not have access to clean water and sanitation.
Reece are committed to supporting and improving sanitation worldwide, and through the Reece Grant, help give new life and opportunities to rural communities by providing them with access to clean, fresh water. To date, the Reece Grant has helped bring clean water to rural villages in East Timor, Zimbabwe, Indonesia, India, Cambodia and the Philippines, thanks to the efforts of our community and some very inspiring plumbers!
