Almost anyone who has ever taken a regular shower knows that the warmth and soothing rhythm of the water can provide great stress relief. When it comes to steam showers, you can enjoy those familiar benefits as well as a number of others.

A steam shower provides wet heat that can open your pores, causing you to sweat and helping your body to release toxins. If that was the only potential benefit, it might be enough. But a steam shower may also help your circulation, open up your sinus passages, assist you with weight loss and offer you the opportunity to relax your thoughts as well as your body.

You may have enjoyed these kinds of benefits in a sauna at a spa, but with the Serene Steam shower, you can now enjoy them in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Although it’s a luxurious product, its simplicity of design and ease of installation may surprise you. The stainless steel shower system comes boxed and ready to install by your plumber or contractor. It requires no hook-up to electricity.

Showerheads and Audio System

Serene Steam is a shower system that includes a rainfall shower head and a Bluetooth audio system in addition to its steam function. Its large showerhead, either round or rectangular depending on the model, can be angled to regulate water flow the way you want it. There is also a back and shoulder shower head which can be swiveled to the angle that works best. This shower head directs a high pressure flow of water to areas of your body that often hold tension, your shoulders and upper back. Water can also be diverted to a hand held shower head.

The sound system is one of the most interesting features, providing you with the chance to enjoy lovely music while you relax in the steam. The waterproof Bluetooth sound system is placed in a semi-flush position inside the shower unit. It uses a lithium ion battery which should never need to be replaced. The speaker system is docked in such a way that it’s removable, so you can take it out when you need to recharge it. A cable and charger come with the system. The system manual, which can be printed from the company’s website, details the speaker system and how it can be removed and replaced. The manual also provides instructions for connecting the speaker system to a Bluetooth enabled portable device.

Steam Control and Aromatherapy

The highlight of the Serene Steam shower is its steam control dial, which can be easily turned to an open or close position to release steam. Once you’ve reached the steam level you desire, usually within about five minutes, you can turn the function to a halfway “cruise” mode to complete the steam experience. Steam will be released from the main vent, raising the temperature to a comfortable warmth.

You can also utilize the system’s aromatherapy feature to enjoy a relaxing scent with your steam. A few drops of essential oil are placed in the proper opening so scent will be delivered with the steam. Per warranty, only official fragrances like Eucalyptus Fusion and Harmony Aroma, from approved vendors such as Flooring Supply Store can be used in the system in order to avoid any potential problems.

The Serene Steam shower system delivers a relaxing shower and steam experience. Its modern design, relatively easy installation and enhanced features such as Bluetooth audio and aromatherapy make it a luxurious investment. However, it’s also an eco-friendly system as steam generally only uses about half the water volume of regular showers so you’ll save both energy and water.

For those of us who live such fast paced lives that we can hardly catch up, let alone treat ourselves to some much needed pampering, a steam shower is a perfect option. It turns even the most mundane of tasks into a spa like experience that will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.

Home Improvement things to know before your next Remodeling

ATR tile leveling system, RLS wedges, RLS spacers, RLS-KIT, leveling, lippage, flat surfaces, spacers, installation

Now that spring has officially arrived, many homeowners are going to focus on finally getting around to those home improvement projects they were never got around to during the winter. One big change you can make to your home, that makes an even bigger impact on it’s appearance, is getting new flooring.

There are, of course, hundreds of flooring options one has to choose from. A flooring type that has often gotten a bad rap is tiles. People have a misconception that they are pricey, difficult to install, and are delicate. What people don’t think about is that, as is with everything, technology has completely changed tiles and how they’re installed.

Tile now days are completely transformed, unique, and almost futuristic. Frosted glass tile along the walls of a shower can turn it into a spa like environment while dark porcelain tiles in the kitchen give it a Tuscan feel.. It has the ability to take a room to another level. While it’s still popular in the traditional settings of the bathroom and kitchen (thanks to its water resistance), it’s almost becoming popular in entry ways and walkways thanks to it’s durability.

A big concern for many when installing tile is proper installation. Whether you do it yourself, or hire a professional, we’ve all heard the horror stories of jagged, uneven tile floors. As I previously mentioned, technology has transformed the installation process with much of that due to the invention of the ATR Tile Leveling System. The system is the only of its kind in that it is a simple, pull out tile leveling system.

Other tile levelers involve use of force, kicking, or even use of tools. I’m fairly certain the last thing someone wants to do when they install brand new tile floors is start kicking at the leveling system or taking a mallet hammer to the leveling system to try to get it out, running the risk of scratching or chipping a tile. This system is unlike others in that it is simply un screw in few spin or use 10mm socket.

Some advantages below

1. The universal Spindle removes cleanly and easily, without any force applied, eliminating risk of fragmenting tiles or leaving any unwanted obstructions behind

2. ATR Leveling System is also the only system not to leave any straps or obstructions between the grout joints once the spindle is removed

3. NO SPECIAL TOOLS REQUIRED, for the advanced professional a simple socket and a cordless drill may be used to install and remove spindles so you are not depending on a broken gun or a single gun on the job site

4. The only system that the spacing plates lock the tile into position giving you the most perfect intersection of the tile and straight lines without requiring consistent adjustments

5. no movement in tile position while twisting the spindle

6. Great labor saving 4 to 1 ratio

For those of you looking to remodel on a budget or simply prefer to do it yourself, there is a ATR Tile Leveling System that will give you the same results as with the professional kit. All you have to do are three easy steps: spread mortar and install tile, screw the spindle into the spacing plate and slide the plate under the tiles to align them, and turn the spindle until the tiles are aligned. It doesn’t matter if you’re installing tiles on your floor or walls, it’s all the same for this system. Just like that, your “big project” for your home this spring, just got a little easier.

What You Should Know About DIY Flooring

What You Should Know About DIY Flooring

So you think you are ready to take on a weekend warrior project? That green shag carpet in the den has got to go. Maybe it is the dingy, torn-up vinyl flooring in the kitchen. Before you even start ripping up your old floor, make sure you have the skills, knowledge and tools, or your weekend project could become expensive and cover a few weeks.

Replacing Worn Out Carpeting

An experienced DIY enthusiast can rip out old carpet and install new carpeting. The job will be messy — it is amazing how much dirt settles under old carpet. You should put down new padding unless yours is in pristine shape. This project will be easier if you remove the old tack strips and install new tackles ones, as Do-it-yourself.com suggests. Allow the new carpet to acclimate to the temperature of your home for 24 hours before installation to prevent shrinking. You still need to use a stretcher to attach the carpet to the tackles strips.

Requirements for this project include the ability to lift and move a large roll of carpet. You will also need to be able to cut it correctly. One mistake can ruin an expensive project. Seam tape can be used for minor errors.

Laying New Wood Flooring

The instructions on the box say the pieces just “snap together”. How much easier could it be? You need to read the part about the sub-floor, if the package even mentions it. Your sub-floor is the base you will be snapping your new floor to according to HomeTips.com. If your sub-floor is wavy, deteriorating or running off at a 30-degree slope, your new floor will look worse with every piece you install.

DIY requirements for this job? You really need more than average handyman skills. You need tools for cutting the flooring to fit as well as a power nailer. When you consider the expense of the materials, you should hire a professional. You can easily do some research online to find contractors in your area that fit your budget for the job.

Installing Vinyl Tile

Do it Yourself, DIY, Home Improvement, home remodeling, flooring supply, bathroom remodeling, shower remodeling

Twelve-inch peel and stick flooring can be installed in a weekend without rocket science skills. One critical aspect of the job is the condition of the floor you are applying the new tile to. If this floor is not even, your new floor will not be either. The tiles are inexpensive enough that one or two mistakes should not be too costly. However, if you plan on removing old flooring, make absolutely certain it does not contain asbestos.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns homeowners that older vinyl flooring may contain asbestos. You may not be able to tell just by looking at the tile — it may require testing. Asbestos is a mineral fiber that was frequently used in many building materials from the 1930s through the 1970s. If you are not sure whether asbestos was used, leave it alone.

To end up with a successful project, keep your tiles all going in the right direction. On the back of the tile, you will see an arrow. Each tile you lay needs to have the arrow going in the same direction. You also need to start with a very straight line, in the center of the room, and continue placing the tile straight, according to Do It Yourself. Adjustments and short pieces should occur at the edges of your room. If you work with plain tiles–those without extensive patterns–you will have better results. Save the mosaics for a professional.

Remember to not overestimate your skills when you want new flooring. Simple projects are not always simple. If you are investing a considerable amount of money into the materials, invest in a professional to install the floor. Spend your weekend relaxing while you watch someone else work.
