New for Autumn 2015, Di Vapor has released a new all glass steam shower aptly named the Modena, due to the popularity of the similar Savona model. This sleek 900 x 900mm low profile 1 person steam shower can be fitted into a corner or fitted against the centre of the a wall. A large swinging glass door entrance mounted at the front provides an elegant finish to set off even the newest contemporary bathrooms.

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.

The Lemon Detox!

Continuing on from our “Importance of Detox” article, we though we’d start with what we consider the most difficult detox of all – The Lemon Detox. Utilised by some of Hollywood’s biggest stars including Angelina Jolie, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow, the Lemon Detox is not designed for the faint hearted. So what does it consist of? Well, you abstain from anything that resembles solid food and survive on Natural Tree syrup diluted with filtered water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper or ground ginger.

What is the Lemon Detox?

The idea follows the eating philosophy of “grazing” – sipping the interesting concoction only when you feel hungry, aiming to take in at least 8 to 10 glasses a day. The Natural Tree Syrup is made from a variety of South East Asian palm syrups and the very best Canadian maple syrup, supplying your body with necessary vitamins and minerals. The lemon juice is added for it’s alkaline properties, whilst the cayenne pepper and ginger combined help speed the process of metabolism, improving overall circulation and the removal of toxins. The detox is expect to last 3 days, but has been known to go right up to 7 days. Pretty epic is you ask me.

When do I start?

The Lemon Detox is nothing new and is now widely available from most health food stores. However, if you do plan to take part in something as extreme as this, please consult your doctor or GP first. If your doctor gives you the go ahead, but your still worried about the entire process, you can book yourself in with the professionals at your local health spa. They’ll help you through the detox, whilst keeping you relaxed throughout.

A word of warning – This detox can cause “cold turkey” from caffeine which causes headaches, tiredness and constipation. Not the most encouraging words, but still worth a shout if you’re committed.

Are you ready for the Lemon Detox?

Cosy Spa Haven at Home!

I think you’ll agree that the bathroom is one of the places you can truly escape the stress of everyday life, and with multiple options becoming widely available and affordable it may be easier than you think to achieve true rest and relaxation. The bathroom is one room in the house that tends to have a lock on the door, and allows you to keep the outside world at arms length.

The most luxurious hotels and day spa retreats provide us with endless inspiration from beautiful whirlpool baths, real wood saunas and steam rooms geared to promote a true feeling of relaxation and well being. However, when it comes to deciding on your own home spa it is important to consider what you prefer the sensation of first. Do you prefer the relaxation provided by swirling water from body massage jets and bubbles or do you prefer to sweat it out in a sauna?

Be sure to allocate your space as simply and effectively as possible. Layouts that are warm, clutter-free and enclosed are best suited for true mind and body restoration rather than an open plan environment. So rather than spending your budget on knocking down structural walls and creating too much work, concentrate on a designated area and start creating your own cosy spa haven.

Log onto www.divapor.com to the full range of steam rooms, hydromassage whirlpool baths, and infrared saunas. With sizes and designs to suit all, you simply won’t be disappointed.
