When it comes to boosting our body’s defences in preparation for winter, everyone has their own tried-and-tested solution. Some people swear by the effects of contrast showers - alternating hot and cold water, while others prefer a warm bath. But whatever your choice, in most cases, the bathroom plays an essential role in our personal health and wellness programme. This is particularly true when the weather takes a turn for the worse, heralding the start of the season of coughs and colds.
Cosy and warm: bathing with Oberon
For many people a hot bath is the best way of warming up after a long walk on a cold, windy day. The bathtubs in Villeroy & Boch's Oberon and Oberon 2.0 series are real classics. A design combining oval and rectangular shapes creates a captivating effect and makes Oberon particularly versatile. The wide selection of models ensures a perfect solution for almost every bathroom - whatever the size or style. Oberon baths are available in fixed installation or free-standing versions and now also as compact wall-standing models. The latter can be supplied with an optional coloured panel, to coordinate ideally with your individual style and add the perfect finishing touch to your personal well-being programme.
Developed specially by Villeroy & Boch, the Quaryl® material makes the Oberon baths feel pleasantly warm to the touch and helps to keep the bathwater warm for longer. Anyone wishing to transform their home into their own personal spa can also have an optional whirlpool system installed in their Oberon 2.0 bath.
Refreshingly cool: showering with Subway Infinity
For those who prefer to boost their resistance with contrast showers - alternating hot and cold water - Subway Infinity is sure to be a firm favourite. The ceramic shower trays adapt to any spatial situation and can be installed either flush-fitting or as surface-mounted versions. The fully integrated water outlet gives the shower tray a clear design and consistent look. One particular highlight is the individual design effects opened up by the ViPrint technology. The selection consists of four design concepts with different decors, including new interpretations of classics, popular tile patterns, natural effects or graphic structures to add an extra burst of freshness to the bathroom for fans of refreshing showers.
If you have space and like both options, there is no need to limit your choice. Why not start a dull winter day with a cold shower - followed by a warm bath in the evening?
