Having access to a spa or wellness area in the comfort of your own home is really the epitome of luxury and class. It doesn't have to be grand and stately, in fact, there are many spa options on the market today that replace those tacky plastic units that became all the rage in previous years. After all, why settle for second when you have access to the best? The selection of spas on display today are well and truly fit for royalty, yet are on a sliding scale of budget, meaning that it is now possible for anyone who has the space to factor in their own wellness area. Let's take a look…
The London Swimming Pool Company is renowned for the construction and design of luxurious spas and pools, so it comes as no surprise that we are faced with yet another stellar example of their work. This particular spa is part of an underground wellness area in a London home, that has an incredible feature—a moving floor! The floor can be used both as a pool, with varying heights for adults and children to swim or paddle, as well as completely raised to accommodate 60 adults for entertainment and party purposes. These individual spas are located around the perimeter of the pool, in between the column work which has been masterfully crafted to embody a historic Roman theme.
These wooden spa tubs from Royal Tubs are reminiscent of a Scandinavian style spa—just made for outdoors! You can just imagine as the temperature drops outside, dipping into this steaming tub to rejuvenate your muscles and mind. Whether surrounded by snow and sunlight or a wash of stars, these tubs are the epitome of Nordic simplicity. Hand crafted from timber, the spas are designed to fit snugly against the contours of your body. The biggest problem faced by plastic and fibreglass tubs is that the shape is set, and therefore can be hard on your back as you try to relax. These tubs are also cost effective and don't have any detrimental effect on the environment.
Even the kids can be included in something that was once seen as an activity for adults. The KiddySwim pool by Riptide is available from the Hot Tub Barn, and has been envisaged for the purpose of exercise for your young ones, but more specifically to create a pool that replaces those cheap and dangerous blow-up pools that were once a summer staple in our gardens and yards. For those parents who do not want to sacrifice the aesthetics and beauty of their wonderfully landscaped outdoor area with a Disney themed plastic monstrosity, you can now have the best of both worlds—style and functionality. Of course, mums and dads can join in on the fun, too!
For those that take fitness seriously even when on vacation, the Michael Phelps force swim spa and hot tub from Master Spas combines luxury pool leisure time with the restorative qualities of a spa. This stunning setting is located on the Caribbean Island of St. Martin. Popular for tourists and celebrities alike, you would expect to find a spa like this gracing the balconies of expensive hotels and properties with an exceptional waterfront view. Since we all know the benefits that water has on our bodies, both externally and internally, for a relaxing and pampering holiday, a spa such as this is an essential item.
Of course, if you have a beautiful spa or pool area, you need to consider the details, too! This stunning crystal chandelier from Italian Lights and Furniture is the perfect finishing touch to your coveted wellness room. These chandeliers, despite their delicate appearance, are made specifically for areas where climate or temperature is constantly changing—e.g. outdoors, bathrooms and wet rooms. For these reasons, it is now possible, and of course, essential, to have a beautiful light fixture grace the spaces that you go to relax and renew.
