Health and Wellness Starts With Your Home

Wellness is multifaceted, encompassing the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being of our mind and bodies. The home in which we live our daily lives impacts our family's heatlh and wellness. Creating spaces that inspire wellness is essential to living a healthy life. The area in your home that is used routinely to pamper yourself is the Master Bath. There are many design features that can accelerate that spa-like feel including materials, lighting, fixtures, and décor.

Some view nature, or a focus on natural elements in design as a trend. We consider it an essential piece of our designs. The human connection with nature on the indoors is as critical as it is in the outdoors. This has become even more important as we spend more time in our homes due to the pandemic. We are reconnecting with our living spaces and what “home” means to us. Wood, stone, metal and water are present in many of the bathrooms we design and sometimes one element is more prevalent than another. Natural elements soften a space and make it a serene environment.


Creating an in-home spa means different things to different clients. Some are seeking escape and relaxation; some seek therapy or treatment for aches and injuries. Our process of understanding our client’s lifestyle is critical in designing their home & spa. We first get to the root of what a spa experience looks like to them and then match the home therapies and equipment to those desires. The Shower experience is extremely important in creating the wellness needed to start or end you day. A steam shower with temperature controls, varying water flow, and choosing the perfect fixtures to add the right aesthetic can make for the ultimate spa-like Master Bath. For a full sensory experience add rain multifunction with waterfall-chromatherapy. To ease your shaving affair, add a bench or get innovative with a shaving sink in the shower.


A great soaking tub with a ceiling mounted faucet and hand shower is beautiful and therapeutic. Using materials such as an elegant marble for a vanity and accent wall, highlighted with niche lighting will transport to a luxurious spa destination. Centaur Interiors collaborated with Fantini to create a custom product line to truly make this one-of-a-kind spa oasis you see below. This modern Master Bath won the First annual Fantini Design awards and is the perfect Master Bath to bring the wellness into your home.


A simple way to create the perfect oasis in your master bath is adding the right décor and setting the mood. Candles in your niches, greenery or florals on your vanity, your favorite piece of art on the walls and the perfect lighting to create an environment. Lighting is important to create the ideal ambience, the color temperature of mood lighting vs task lighting will make all the difference. Technology can play a large role in establishing the right atmosphere, such as a vanishing tv and in wall speakers to enhance the experience.
