"The influence of Scandinavian and Japanese culture has changed attitudes toward bathrooms. In these cultures, the bathroom is regarded as a natural part of everyday life in which mental and spiritual well-being are as important as hygiene. This has given rise to the widely held view that the bathroom is a place not only to wash oneself but also to relax and enjoy a sense of well being."—excerpt from Ultimate Bathroom Design, page 11

I couldn't agree more!

"Not only is it a question of what is good for our planet, 
 it is a question of what is good for our spirit.  
Whether we are aware of it consciously or not; 
-What surrounds us either uplifts, inspires and energizes us or
 bogs us down, overwhelms us and depletes us.  
So today I challenge you to take a tour of your home..."
