Whether you enjoy lazing by the swimming pool with a good book, baking your favourite treats or taking a soothing bath, creating luxurious spaces where you live is a great way to enjoy moments of relaxation from the comfort of your own home.

One trend that has been observed in the recent past is the concept of alfresco living. With people spending a considerable amount of time at home, they are maximising the use of all available spaces – including the outdoors.

The key to creating luxurious home spaces is to first consider what would make you feel as relaxed as you are on holiday or at the day spa or what you do when you’re most relaxed. What is it that these moments have? One important element of many luxurious, relaxing spaces is water. While you might not have the space for a plunge pool or the desire to install a fountain, a bathtub is the epitome of relaxation and an alfresco bathtub is sure to make you feel like you are at a resort.

Alfresco Bathtub

In order to achieve an alfresco bathtub, you will first need to decide where you would like to create your luxurious home haven and what other elements you would like in your space. A popular trend at the moment is to connect your outdoors with your indoors. This ensures that your alfresco space can still be seamlessly enjoyed from both spaces.

One way to do this is to have beautiful bi-fold doors spilling out from your bathroom, master bedroom or guest suite. Not only does this look luxurious, it will also make you feel like you are on holiday, which is exactly what we are aiming for.

Another luxurious alfresco element is an outdoor shower. This can be a relaxing addition over your bathtub or a practical element by itself.

Now, you might have heard that you can only have your bathroom in a location where there is existing plumbing, and therefore, might be thinking that you have limited options for the placement of your beautiful new outdoor bathtub; however, this isn’t quite the case. While traditional plumbing relies on gravity to flow the water downhill towards the sewerage/water mains, Saniflo provides an innovative and alternative plumbing solution, giving you the flexibility to install your luxurious bathroom wherever you please. As the French inventor of the macerating pump, Saniflo has been providing home and business owners with the ideal wet areas for over 60 years.
