Taking Bathing into the 21<sup>st</sup> Century

Taking Bathing into the 21st Century

As times have changed, the bathing trend today has shifted to elaborate showers with multiple heads and features. But don't despair. It is possible to step out of the shower and back into your tub. With a few simple and modern modifications, you too can enjoy an indulgent bathing experience fit for the new millennium.


Take the guesswork out of creating the perfect bath. With the new ioDIGITAL™ Roman Tub from Moen Incorporated, you don't need to worry if the water's too hot, too cold or whether the tub will overflow if you get distracted. Now you can relax with precise flow and consistent temperature every time you take a bath thanks to ioDIGITAL's innovative, user-friendly technology. And one of the best parts about ioDIGITAL is its remote control. It features an On/Off button, three convenient preset buttons and a hot water Top Off feature, to bring your bath water back up to that perfect temperature with the touch of a button.

To coordinate with your existing bath d├ęcor, the ioDIGITAL Roman Tub is compatible with a wide range of Moen's Roman tub styles – from traditional to modern, in a variety of finishes. To create an even more peaceful and inspiring sanctuary, dress up the walls with brightly colored mosaics or paint with deep, rich colors to add depth and warmth to your room. Consider adding ceramic tile to the floor, for Old World flair and appeal.


Get into the groove, concentrate on yourself for a change – and allow some time for uninterrupted peace to thoroughly unwind. Make sure you really can let go and that you won't be bothered by family members or friends. Leave the phone in a different room; occupy your kids with books, games or videos.

Begin by turning off the lights in your bath and light aromatic candles. Scents such as lavender, jasmine and chamomile are known to have a calming effect. Listen to your favorite music to help you chill out by placing a docking station for your MP3 player on your counter. The iH15W LED Color Changing Stereo System from iHome is the perfect item for creating your escape. Not only does it provide enhanced audio for your favorite music, it can also change colors. Set it to reflect your mood and enhance your bathing experience with serene colors and sounds.

While soaking in the warm water, indulge in a soothing bubble bath, or use bath oils and lotions to soothe and pamper your skin. Most importantly, relax and enjoy while you treat yourself to a 21st-century escape with the most intuitive technology the bath has to offer.
