“There must be quite a few things a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.” – Sylvia Plath (American Poet 1932-1963)
At AQUAdesign, we are always looking for ways to improve your bath time. This striving results in a continuous process of finding solutions to improve all aspects of our baths, whether that’s new materials and technologies or reviewing the wishes and needs of our customers. How do you use the bath and when, how often, and are there new ways of bathing? We are always looking for new ideas!

Development of baths, accessories, and design options for these models is always in line with our desire for beauty, purity, and originality.

Bath vs Shower?
Today, the daily routine of showering might be more appropriate because of time constraints and running off to work or school, or after a your workout, or a day of working in the garden.
But which is better, a shower or a bath? The reality is that both have benefits and advantages, so we want you to think about having the best of both worlds!
A relaxing moment, soaking in hot water is a real stress reliever. Take a warm bath and listen to music an hour or two before going to bed and you might just sleep better. Your body cooling down leads to better sleep. To unwind, taking a bath a few times a week is without a doubt beneficial!
Dermatologist Whitney Bowe, MD, adds that baths can lower cortisone levels, which in turn helps delay premature aging and reduces acne.
Space can be an issue, though. Showers are a bit smaller than a tub, but if you still want to have both, why not take a shower in your bath tub?
A bath uses between 140 and 200 liters / 37 and 53 gallons of water, whereas a shower will use between 95 and 180 liters / 25 and 48 gallons every 10 minutes. So, for your daily morning routine, a low-flow shower might help you reduce water consumption, and if you want to feel the warm, relaxing water for longer, take a bath. Think of baths as the occasional treat and stick to quick showers to reduce your water consumption.
The sumptuousness and elegance of AQUAdesign baths are underlined by their form, starting with a majestic retro style, and moving to the modern and even avant-garde, with baths characterized by a refined geometry. They are made for you with different finishes and bold decorations: colors, lacquers, leather, mosaics, and infinite chromatic variations.
A decoration, whether geometric, floral, or stylized, creates a note of uniqueness enhanced by the dialogue between details: rounded or square contours, the shape of the bathtub, the wish of the customer. It’s true exclusivity in your bathroom.
All material used in baths must follow certain specifications for damp environments, water tightness, and longevity. Cristalplant Biobased meets these needs the best. 50% of its composition is derived from aluminum-hydrate recovered from the process of extracting aluminum. 30% of the resin, which would previously have been from fossil fuels, has been replaced by polyesters of plant origin. It can be recycled and 100% reused at the end of its lifespan.
By reducing the weight of our materials by up to 30%, we have reduced the production of CO2 more than similar products currently on the market. The reduction of weight also affects handling and transport, again reducing CO2 emissions, and making our baths easier to install!
It is by familiarizing yourself with the terminology and mechanisms of massage that you can configure your system with the best equipment and the options you need. But as, in the end, no one is forced to choose a massage system in a dictionary, do not hesitate to contact us or come to one of our partner’s showrooms, to see, touch and feel all that AQUAdesign is able to create for your well-being.
