Autumn: three months, three colours for your shower

Otoño: tres meses, tres colores

Almost without realising it, autumn moves steadily onward and now we find ourselves half way through. They seem like three long months, but they fly by. And now, given that we still have half of the season ahead of us, we want to propose three colours closely related to autumn, colours that are fashionable and that will help you to give your bathroom a very natural style.

  

Arcilla

Exclusive to our collection of ‘Silex Rustica’ shower trays, the colour Arcilla (which in Spanish means “clay”) reminds us of traditional ways of doing things, of craftsmanship. An obvious example is the work of the potter. It connects us with the most rural aspect of the autumn. It is the best option if you want to give your bathroom the unmistakable air of a family home.

 

Cenere

Cenere is a greyish colour, similar to certain woods and to the ashes that remain after a fire: that colour we are so accustomed to when we see the warmth of a good fire. In addition to the shower tray, you can extend this to the walls of your shower with the Fiora Box ‘Silex Privilege’ collection.

 

Wenge

A brilliant dark brown colour, which evokes damp earth better than any other. In combination with the unique touch of the Slate texture under your feet, you feel almost like you are standing under autumn rain. And thanks to the adaptability of the ‘Elax’ shower trays, you can install your shower in the corner you prefer, avoiding any possible obstacle.

 

You can find these colours in many other Fiora products: panels, radiators and furniture. Also, these are only three possibilities, and in our collections you will find many other finishes. Which one is your favourite?

Have a shower, but do it well

Would you like to celebrate World Health Day with us? Our proposal is very simple: we’ll remind you of four good habits for the shower and then you share them, so that we don’t forget them again almost immediately.

Some time ago the World Health Organization reminded us what the perfect shower was like: it should never exceed 5 minutes in duration or use more than 95 litres of water. Even so, many of us don’t do this well. So this will be the first habit to bear in mind: to use the right amount of water so that the consumption is sustainable. But, as well as this advice, here are some more suggestions for enjoying the best kind of shower, looking after your body at the same time:

Soap
If you shower more than once a day, because you exercise or have a job involving a great deal of physical exertion, try not to always use soap. And if you do use it, try to make sure it respects the pH of your skin, which should have a level between 5 and 6.

Temperature
The contrasts in water temperature are very beneficial for stimulating the circulation. But if you don’t feel up to cold water, at least don’t overdo it with the heat. Put the thermostat closer to 30 ºC than to 40 ºC; believe it or not, the moderate temperature will relax you more, while hot water could aggravate circulatory problems such as varicose veins.

Drying
This is a part of the shower to which many don’t pay adequate attention, but it is equally or more important than the previous ritual. Unless you have used a moisturising body oil which needs to be slowly absorbed through the skin without drying, dry your body thoroughly. Pay special attention to the areas between the fingers and the toes, to prevent fungal growth.

Enjoy a healthy shower!
