Each year, they deliver something I’m passionate about: good design.

tried & tested: foot spas

THE DEEP CLEANSER Featuring massaging rollers underfoot, bubbles that were streamlined around the outer edge of my feet and two infrared lights that maintained the water temperature, the Beurer Foot Bubblespa didn't leave much to complain about.

The size of the model and base roller on each side meant the reflex zone of my feet was comfortably covered, but the rollers didn’t quite reach my toes or the back of my heels. I used the three clip-ons by hand, which left my feet exfoliated and soft. This stylish foot spa was equipped with a handy carrying…

natural selection

There’s something about being at one with nature that’s very soothing, so imagine if you could replicate that feeling of relaxation you get when holidaying by the water. Well, you can mimic the feeling of showering under a waterfall or indulging in a long soak in a hot spring in the comfort of your own backyard if you take the leap and have that outdoor bathroom you’ve been dreaming of designed and installed. Tempted? Here’s what you need for your perfect new outdoor bathroom. A SUNSHINY SHOWER Exterior shower fittings must be able to withstand the elements, but all plated finishes will deteriorate in time.
