Everyday Indulgences: A Gift that Keeps on Giving

(ARA)- Do you know a mom who could has some stress in her life? Could she use an anxiety antidote? The answer could be a bathroom upgrade.
"Turn your bathroom into a home spa where mom can decompress and ease the stress of daily life," suggests Melissa Gosling, marketing director for Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath.
According to Gosling, there are numerous affordable amenities available for creating a luxury environment and transforming an everyday functional space into a personal getaway. "It's important to take care of yourself. And, if you can do so with some feel-good additions that have a lasting impact, it's a gift that keeps on giving for the whole family."
Five ideas that Gosling proposes for creating an un-extreme bath makeover include:
* Add in-floor heating under foot. It's an easy step towards luxury. Look for heating "mat" sizes - like those from Jacuzzi ranging from 4 to 10 feet - that can be discreetly sandwiched under the floor's surface and installed on those zones you'd like warmed, such as in front of the tub, shower or sink.
* Transform your everyday shower into one that literally takes you away from it all. Jacuzzi's Ristorre Metallo Shower Tower, for example, comes fully loaded with such amenities as an adjustable rainhead, separate personal hand shower as well as a mirror and shelf. Shower Towers come preassembled and easily retrofit an existing shower system with minimal plumbing required.
* Convert your shower into a custom steam bath where mom can sit down, relax and unwind. Jacuzzi's Sedona Steam Seat is a smart way to do just that. It features a generator built into the pre-assembled fiberglass box seat. You just install and cover it with tile or surface material that matches the rest of the shower.
* For a truly pampering indulgence, consider adding a Home Spa Towel Warming Drawer to a new or existing cabinet. In only a matter of minutes, homeowners can enjoy toasty warm towels, extending the feeling of relaxation and luxury after a bath or shower.
* Finally, for the ultimate in relaxation, no at home spa is complete without a plasma or flat screen TV. If you don't have space to mount it on the wall, opt for Jacuzzi's Lift It. It's an aluminum frame elevation system that at the push of a button smoothly raises the TV from a cabinet to a comfortable viewing level.
According to Remodeling Magazine's 2005 Cost vs. Value Report, you can't go wrong with any type of bathroom remodel. When it comes time to resell, the average upgrade will net you 100.2 percent of your cost.
