Luxurious Alfresco Living
With 2020 being such a challenging year for most, chances are you’re in need of a little pampering. 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 we are loving is the rise of alfresco living. Having spent so much time at home this year, people are maximising all available spaces. If you’ve already Marie Kondo’d your wardrobe, organised your pantry so it looks like something from Pinterest, and tackled a few at home reno projects that have been sitting on your To Do list, consider taking a look at your outdoors.
The key to creating luxurious home spaces is to think what would make you feel as relaxed as you are on holidays, at the day spa or what are you doing when you’re most relaxed? What is it that these moments have? One key 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.

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 your space to include. A popular trend at the moment is to connect your outdoors with your indoors. This ensures that your alfresco space can still be 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 make you feel like you are on holidays, 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 are limited with where you can have your beautiful new outdoor bathtub, however this isn’t quite the case. While traditional plumbing relies on gravity to flow thee water downhill towards the sewerage/water mains, Saniflo provide an innovative and alternative plumbing solution, giving you the flexibility to install your luxurious bathroom wherever you please.
