Keeping track of kitchen and bathroom trends isn't all about spending a Day at the Spa at Aria for BlogTour Las Vegas With Mr.Steam. It also includes absorbing and distilling everything that takes place at a show like the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) and highlighting - in this case - three trends you'll want to watch in 2014.
KBIS 2014, by the way, took place in Las Vegas in partnership with International Builder's Show and attracted more than 80,000 visitors to the Las Vegas Convention Center. Talk about an opportunity to explore, experience and discover what's ahead for design trends!
In addition to working with design professionals (e.g., during BlogTour), Mr.Steam also collaborates with architects (e.g., with CEUs and other resources).
For that reason, Mr.Steam is particularly proud and excited about being awarded an Architizer A+ Product Award for 2014!
Mr.Steam's iSteam Control was awarded the Architizer A+ Awards for 2014 in the Product +Technology category.
Winter 2014 was a particularly rough season in the United States. "One of the coldest Arctic outbreaks in two decades... plunged into the country, bringing bitterly cold temperatures to the Midwest, South and East" according to Deep Freeze: Was the Polar Vortex Really the Cause? from the Weather Channel. Now, you can be sure that springtime allergies will be equally intense. How can you prepare yourself?
Just in time for spring, Better Homes & Gardens Kitchen & Bath Ideas has released its 30 Most Innovative Kitchen and Bath Products for 2014. If you haven't yet, you'll want to purchase your copy of this magazine.
Mr.Steam is particularly excited about this spring 2014 issue because the listing of 30 truly newsworthy and one-of-a-kind kitchen and bath products includes the Mr.Steam Audio Wizard!
If you are looking for instructions on how to install a steam generator, Mr.Steam has two videos for you to choose from. Each is 3 min. in length. One focuses on installing a steam generator with the iTempo Control. The other - which we describe here - is about how to install a steam generator with the iSteam Control.
This video is of particular value to steam shower professionals so feel free to share it with your licensed plumber/electrician!
Thinking about a home steam shower? The two most important facts you need to know are:
1. Big Benefits, yes
2. Big Bucks, no
That’s how steam expert Eddie Glenn boils it all down. And he should know. Eddie has been helping homeowners, contractors and decorators select Mr. Steam steam showers for the past 15 years at My House Plumbing and Hardware in Tarzana, CA.
With all the talk going on about steam and steam bathing, have you wondered what makes for a truly effective steam bath? You know, the kind that does body and soul lots of good?
(And the kind described in A Day at the Spa at Aria for BlogTour Las Vegas With Mr.Steam.)
We caught up with Martha Orellana aka Mrs. Steam, Vice President of Marketing and Steaming for Mr.Steam, to discuss Steam Bathing 101. The result is this article about the seven steps for an effective steam bath so that, whether at home or at a spa, you're able to consistently create a perfect steamtherapy experience every time you want a steam bath.
Steam Bathing: A Journey through the Ages continues with part 5, an exploration of the Hamam and Turkish baths.
If you are new to this series, be sure to check out Steam Bathing: A Journey Through the Ages, which introduces the journey, Steam Bathing History With the Ancient Greeks and Romans, the Sweat Lodges and Temazcals of the Native Americans, and steam bathing in the Onsen and Sento of Japan.
The air is still before the call to prayer. You step into the mysterious half-light of the hamam. The large dome above you, decorated with small windows, gives a sensation of spaciousness.
Where else would Mr.Steam throw a party? At a spa, of course! Mr.Steam, a sponsor of BlogTour Las Vegas, hosted everyone for a day at the Spa at Aria for an unforgettable steam therapy experience!
Martha Orellana, VP of Mr.Steam, greeted the BlogTour bloggers at the Aria Cafe for a scrumptious brunch chock full of delicious entrees, a few Bellinis and good conversation.
Today's bathroom designs are trending more contemporary with spa-like features such as steam showers and heated floors, according to new research from the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA).
NKBA recently announced the results of their 2014 Kitchen and Bath Design Trends Survey at their recent Kitchen & Bath Industry Show for design and construction professionals.
Let's go into more detail.
