Creating a home spa with the Cascade

Di Vapor have been supplying shower enclosures for almost a decade, working with a varied level of customer bathroom requirements. We thought it would be a good idea to talk about one of our popular corner quadrants cabins under the spotlight this February – The Cascade steam shower enclosure. If you’re looking at renovating your bathroom or shower space, it really doesn’t get much better than this.

The Cascade (S-DV6007) Quadrant Steam Cabin

Divulge in the dream bathroom

If you’re in the middle of a bathroom renovation, you’ll be familiar with what’s available in the marketplace. Buyers tend to go down two routes – ultimate practicality or luxury at any cost. Cabins from Di Vapor provide a delicate balance of both, ensuring that you have an option for everyday showering whilst providing a solution to relaxing in your very own private spa.

With most renovations limited by the space available, it is important to remember that a steam room doesn’t require a large 3m x 3m space or bigger. All that’s really needed is space of approximately 1m x 1m – enough room to fit a one person cabin. Di Vapor offers plenty of one person solutions including the The Cascade quadrant shower enclosure, standing at a size of 900mm x 900mm.

A Collision of Contemporary

The Cascade achieves a contemporary look by combining bold features with straight edged transparent glass panels. The simplified design is coupled with a practical large bench seat, offering comfort to the user during a 30 minute session.

With the cabin being constructed from a combination of reinforced acrylic fibreglass, aluminium and glass, the sheer weight of such material requires a strong foundation. This is provided through a raised acrylic fibreglass reinforced tray (for easy plumbing) that’s also finished in white for continuity throughout. This unit would settle well in a brightly decorated bathroom finished in large black or white marble tiles – this is your home spa haven after all!

All the bells and whistles

Now it’s all well and good if something looks the part, but can it provide everything that you need in order to class the Cascade as a complete home spa solution. To get things started, the Cascade comes complete with an overhead monsoon shower mounted flush into the top piece – perfect for getting completely drenched. This is coupled with a handheld shower (great for cleaning) and hydro massage body jets lined across both back panels.

But it’s the built in steam generator that really appeals to the wellness cravers amongst us – a simple press of a button kick starts a constant flow of warm steam into the cabin. Temperatures can get up to 60 degress celcius but for health and safety reasons, it’s important that you don’t stay in for too long – 30 minutes is enough for most users. Partner this with a fully programmable FM radio and you’ve got yourself a true spa escape in the comfort of your own home.

Top 6 Tips to a Healthy Heart

Many of us believe that in order to maintain a healthy heart, serious action is needed such as the intake of medicines and rigorous diet changes. The truth is, simple short term changes can have lasting long term effects.

Many research studies have shown the healing power of a positive attitude and having a generally good time with life – We only get one after all, so why not make the most of it!

Here are the Healthy Hideout’s top 6 tips towards a healthy heart!

Enjoy life to the fullest! Your heart will thank you for it!

Enjoy Life to the fullest

Studies have shown that people who laugh more and have lives filled with activity are much less likely to fall victim to a heart condition. When we finally decide to fly the nest and leave our parents house after signing a mortgage agreement of our own, adult responsibilities tend to result in the fun coming to a sudden stop. Maintain some childlike fun in your daily lives – Your healthy heart will thank you for it.

Spend time relaxing

The cycle tends to be the same for most of us. As life begins to gather pace, more things need doing, stress levels boom and the risk of heart disease increases.  The world moves along at the fast pace, a pace that you can’t change. You can however change your response to it. Dedicate a time in the day to get away from it all and relax your mind, be it with yoga, reading your favourite book or even walking the dog.

It’s only one glass!

Studies by the British Heart foundation have shown that those who choose to drink a glass of wine with their evening meal may lower their heart disease risk by at least 30 percent.  A small amount of alcohol enjoyed each day may be better than practising abstinence, and is of course better than drinking excessively. Red wine in particular is associated with having a strong healthy heart.

Create your own home haven

Spending time relaxed rather than being stressed can halve your heart disease risk, so why not create your own haven in the comfort of your own home? Plenty of natural light, soothing music and an abundance of fresh flowers are great starting points. Have a dedicated quiet space in the house to ensure you have a place to think without interruption.

Soothe your soul

Belief in yourself helps to to keep you mentally grounded, which can help towards maintaining a clear focus. Research has shown that people who use positive words such as “hope” and “joy” tend to outlive their pessimistic others by a decade. Try to embrace all the good things in your life, rather than focusing on the negatives – It’s obvious, but happiness is better than anger.

Have fun and socialise!

Our hearts are healthier when in the company of others that we know and love. Try not to make excuses by not having enough time, and surround yourself with family and friends! It’ll do wonders for your well being, without you even thinking about it.

So what do you do in your daily lives to help maintain a healthy heart? The Healthy Hideout would love to hear your recommendations.
