Full bathroom spaces are prime opportunities to add wellness benefits to your clients’ homes. Bathrooms are among the most essential rooms tied to human well-being, given their essential roles in digestion, hygiene, grooming, and relaxation.
One easy way to incorporate wellness features into your projects – especially main suites, guest bathrooms, and pool baths – is by including products that provide warmth in your bathroom spaces. Heated towel racks make great additions to these areas because they bring an essence of luxury, while boasting many other important benefits. These products add Comfort & Joy, the Fifth Facet of Wellness Design, and the one that most often drives client delight and referrals.
Join wellness design consultant and Wellness by Design book author Jamie Gold, CKD, CAPS, MCCWC with heated towel rack manufacturer and sponsor Amba Products for The Wellness Benefits of Bathroom Warmth. This lively, informative KBtribechat will happen on Twitter, Wednesday, March 17th at 2 PM ET/11 AM PT.

Following National Tile Day on February 23, Coverings is excited to host a KBtribechat session on February 24 to continue the discussion about the benefits and use of ceramic tile for specific applications. Ceramic tile is one of the most versatile surface materials and innovative design options, with many available shapes, sizes, patterns, colors, and finishes. Not only is tile beautiful, but it is also one of the healthiest and most hygienic choices available, being naturally resistant to bacteria, dust and other harmful pollutants. It is low-maintenance and easy to clean, with superior performance in kitchens, baths and any specified location. Unlike many other surface options, ceramic tile offers sustainability benefits including being energy efficient and recyclable. Slip- and fire-resistant, tile provides uncompromising safety without sacrificing style.
Coverings is the preeminent event for the ceramic tile and natural stone industry in North America. Only at Coverings can kitchen and bath professionals, architects, designers, installers, retailers, distributors, fabricators, contractors, and many others from across the world experience the full benefits of tile, trending products, beautiful vignettes, and robust educational programs at no cost.
Coverings 2021 will take place July 7-9, 2021, in the North Hall of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Learn more and register at coverings.com.
