Bathing is no longer just about getting clean, and if you are looking for the bathroom-as-spa, home-retreat experience, Kohler’s VitrAcoustic tub will fit the bill.
At one time, taking time for yourself and having a special bath meant adding some bubbles and lighting a candle or two, but this tub is light years away from that type of experience.
The fine folks at Kohler have found a way for you to add music to your bath. Plug in your smart phone, MP3 player, or tablet and listen to your favorite music while you relax and unwind. (You could also listen to a podcast or catch up on the news if you like, but this is supposed to be your time to get away from distractions from the outside world.)
The vibrations of the music travel above and below the waterline to surround your body while you are in the tub. The sound panels are positioned under the shell of the bath so that you enjoy a smooth bathing surface and can focus solely on relaxation.
Special speakers are positioned in strategic locations throughout the bath to emit sound waves to envelop you as you enjoy the warmth of the water.
Some models include chromatherapy lights to provide a complete relaxation experience. Four colored lights work in sequence with the sound vibrations of the music you choose to add to your experience.
With prices starting at $3,245, this bit of heaven doesn’t come cheap, but we’re worth it, right?
