Upgrade That Self-Care Regimen With a New Bathtub

Homeowners can keep their New Year’s resolutions of self-care this Valentine’s Day by upgrading their bathtub or shower. The bathroom is a sanctuary in the home for many people, and the bathtub is seen as a place to escape from the world for a while and rejuvenate the spirit. For many, it is considered therapeutic in more than one way. Of course, the degree of relaxation is dependent on the bathtub itself, for the most part. If homeowners haven’t had their bathtub upgraded in a few years, it is probably time to invest in one, and what better time than Valentine’s Day? 

Local professionals are there to answer any questions that homeowners might have before making the investment. However, there is some great information listed below as well. To learn more about bathtubs and the therapy they provide, continue reading below.

Common Bathtub Designs 


Perhaps the most common kind of bathtub today is a tub-shower combo, where the bathtub is surrounded on three sides by the bathroom walls, and the showerhead is mounted on one of the walls. If the homeowner has a bathtub-shower combo, it is likely made of porcelain. 

However, there are other materials as well. Those with stand-alone bathtubs sometimes buy them in:

  • Porcelain
  • Acrylic 
  • Fiberglass-Reinforced Polyester 
  • Enameled Steel
  • Porcelain-Enameled Cast Iron 

For many, a warm bath is a staple self-care practice, so the bathtub they invest in is extremely important. Some homeowners even have jacuzzi bathtubs installed in their bathroom for a more luxurious feel. 

Chromotherapy, Aromatherapy, and Music Therapy 

The bathtub is one of the best places to relax and even meditate. Many people today take to their bathtub a tray that they can place different therapeutic things on to create their very own kind of spa day. 

Different therapeutic and meditative practices to try in the bathtub: 

  • Chromotherapy: The study of light therapy. Different light holds different frequencies, and the body matches those frequencies. 
  • Aromatherapy: Essential oils have swept the nation, and there are now photos all over Instagram of people putting the oils in their bathtubs as well. When used on the skin, the herbal extracts have different healing properties, but the aromatherapy benefits are just as strong.
  • Music Therapy: It is known that the Earth holds its own frequency as well as human. Music is a way for the mind to naturally attune to a therapeutic frequency, which leads to countless benefits, including better sleep and reduced anxiety. 

Showers Can Be Just As Relaxing!

Depending on the homeowner’s budget, there are a few ways they can upgrade their shower to make it just as relaxing as the bathtub!


Modern technology allows homeowners to add showerheads to their ceilings, jets to the walls, and LEDs all of the shower. Homeowners can even add heaters underneath the tile in their shower to keep them warm when the water turns off. 

To put it simply, there isn’t much a homeowner can’t do in today’s world to turn their bathroom into their own personal spa. Homeowners can rely on local professionals to advise them on how to efficiently upgrade their bathtub this Valentine’s Day.
