BEING GOOD TO OURSELVES

I

n advance of entering into my busiest time of the year for the magazine
and our upcoming KBIS 2020 event, my boyfriend and I were able
to get away to Florida's 30A for a few days. We got plenty of fresh
air, exercise and great food. Now back-to-back deadlines and ample
planning calls keep me on my toes, and things won't mellow out until
at least February.
Since we can't always be under the basking glow of a vacation, it is important to also incorporate health and wellness into our homes. In ours, we have
a workout room with weights, enough space for me to jump from one side
to the next, and I just bought a punching bag! I wanted to switch things up
a bit, but I hope my clumsy side doesn't get me injured. We open our blinds
and windows every day to let in natural light, and we try to spend time outside
on our deck as often as we can.
There is a lot more we could be doing, and this issue on the healthy home
delves into a plethora of suggestions from a variety of design professionals.
Clients are paying more attention to design for well-being; it is important
for the environment and for the people living in the home.

› Before and after photos of my
dad's bathroom in Florida; project by Jacksonville, Fla.-based
Jax Home Construction LLC

If you have been reading my columns, you know
that my dad has been in the process of transforming his builder-grade bathroom. While his goals
mainly centered around aesthetics with his many
beautiful tile choices, he also paid heed to his
health and wellness when using the space.
A small window was enlarged to bring the
outdoors inside, the pebble tile is like a mini foot
massage in the new shower, the vanity now offers
soft-close doors and more specific storage compartments, and the bathroom fan allows him to
play music or listen to "NPR" while making sure
the air is clean and fresh.
My favorite addition is the little bench in the
shower, which provides the perfect place to shave
my legs. Much better than the soap dish I use
at our house. A regular showerhead is on one
side of the space, while a handheld unit above
the bench is available in case anyone using the
bathroom needs to sit down to bathe.
Although my dad is in his 70s, he wasn't really in
the mood to talk about a bathroom that was more
conducive to aging in place. But when it was about
providing a comfortable space for him to enjoy
getting ready for his busy days, he was definitely
more open to suggestions. His new bathroom is a
total transformation, and I am so happy he finally
got exactly what he wanted.
