How to create a home spa with porcelain stoneware tiles

by Sara Costi

In his treatise “On airs, waters, and places”, Hippocrates stated that people’s wellbeing is closely linked to the place they live in. Feng Shui and more recent disciplines, such as Neuroarchitecture and architectural and environmental psychology, also demonstrate how the domestic environment affects people in several ways. Therefore, in this holistic vision embracing the body and mind, designing domestic spaces dedicated to one’s wellbeing and relaxation is essential, and water is the main element to achieve this.

If you’re thinking about creating a home spa, you should first choose the best room for it in terms of size, water supply systems, and electrical system. Whether you want to transform your bathroom into a relaxation corner, create a mini whirlpool swimming pool on your terrace, or set up a wellness path with a sauna and a Turkish bath, your wellness space should fit harmoniously into your home’s style.

Humidity, wet surfaces, and surfaces immersed in water make the wall and floor tiles you choose essential to ensure safety, hygiene, comfort, sturdiness, practicality, and a style that’s consistent with the rest of the home.

They are made solely with natural raw materials and are fully recyclable, fire-resistant, and non-allergenic. They also remain unchanged over time.

Maximum hygiene at home with Bios Antibacterial®

Removing bacteria from domestic surfaces is essential to prevent mould, yeast, fungi, and odours. And Casalgrande Padana has developed the perfect solution: Bios Antibacterial®, the exclusive silver-based treatment that eliminates 99% bacteria from the tiles’ surfaces. This antibacterial treatment is incorporated permanently into the porcelain stoneware tiles. It’s always active in the light and dark and doesn’t need UV radiation to be activated. Bios Antibacterial® uses a technology based on silver ions, which removes bacteria and prevents their proliferation by inhibiting bacterial metabolism. Laboratory tests have shown that Bios Antibacterial® can remove 99% of the four main bacterial strains (Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa).
