Even before the pandemic, the interior design industry was steadily shifting towards more health-conscious products and materials. From green home elements to organic textiles, sustainable living is not a new concept in home construction and design. 

But now, with all eyes on holistic wellness, these innovations are even more important. Not only are we spending more time in the home, but we’re collectively thinking more about our health, both mentally and physically.

Your home should be a safe place to relax and recharge, with dedicated areas that help to support your self-care. In particular, manufacturers in the kitchen & bath space are delivering some pretty amazing options to up-level your at-home wellness regimen.

We’ve shared a few of our favorite health-conscious innovations for your owner’s bath below. What’s even better – these products will boost both the mind and the body.

Dornbracht Water Therapy Treatments

Borrowing from the Kneipp Therapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dornbracht created a line of products that leverage the benefits of water therapy. The shower solutions are designed to improve physical ailments, like back, neck, or knee pain, and to strengthen the immune system and blood circulation. Imagine a luxurious full-body massage every time you step into the shower.

Each scent provides a different benefit, from an energizing citrus to a relaxing lavender.

Refrigerated Vanity Drawers

Add a mini-fridge or a refrigerated drawer in your bathroom. Chill products like face-masks or serums, store cool towels, or keep a hydrating coconut water on-hand. Luxury manufacturers like Thermador and Perlick offer under-counter drawers perfect your bathroom vanity.

Natural & Organic Finishes

Use organic materials and finishes in bathroom design. Natural elements like marble and limestone are so luxurious, yet functional. Their impervious surfaces are easy to wipe clean. Try a live plant in your bathroom to add a lovely fragrance and aid with air filtration. Or, switch out your soft goods with organic options. We love the collection of towels, rugs, shower curtains and robes from Boll & Branch, made from sustainable raw materials.
