Hot Air Massage for Cultured Marble Tubs now available from IMI

features04a   american-air03-newjets "Whirlpool tubs" had become the generic name for tubs equipped with a water and air bubble system: a pump underneath the tub would pick up water from the bath ares, mix it with air taken from above the tub deck and push the mixture through large orifices inside the tub wall. While it was at times noisy, it did the job at a reasonable cost. Enter the Hot Air Massage system: 18 small mini jets each with its own check valve allow hot air to be blown into the tub, creating a warm, sensational feeling. The blower motor is quiet, carries a lifetime warranty and runs on standard household 110V electrical power. Check out IMI's extensive offering of tub designs and call our office at 770 928 2252 to see which tub can be equipped with this marvelous massage system.

Designing Bathrooms for Prime Timers

Evolution of the bathroom Different generational groups have different priorities for their bathrooms. And Prime Timers want their bathrooms to help them stay where they are. Prime Timers have carried on remodeling their bathrooms throughout the recession. They aim to create a space where they can relax, an environment  they can adjust as their health needs and dexterity change. A Prime Timer’s bathroom is often on the ground floor or the at least a single level. According to Livable Communities, 82% of Americans over the age of 65, have a full bathroom on the main floor of their homes. A similar proportion either has a bedroom, or a room that could become a bedroom, on the main floor. Getting the lighting right is also important for Prime Timers. Positioning switches and outlets for easy reach is one step towards making things safer and more convenient. It is also worth thinking about what the lighting is for. For example, positioning lights on either sides of a mirror, rather than above, will make the face easier to see, illuminating the shadow under the chin that makes shaving difficult and grey hair hard to see. Overall, Prime Timers want somewhere safe, adaptable and accessible. And they want somewhere comfortable and, of course, stylish.
