For the sleep deprived, try a warm soak in the tub and on to a comfortable bed for some Zs.

SINGAPORE (Feb 7): Taking a long warm bath may sound like a luxury to some people. To others, it means the prelude to a good night’s rest. Research has shown that the best time to take a bath is one hour to two hours before bedtime. This is sufficient time for blood circulation to improve and for the body temperature to decrease.

The Toto Flotation Tub makes you feel like floating and this feeling of weightlessness is the ultimate relaxation. Stress will further melt away when you switch on Hydrohands – a massage function that uses the flow of water to knead away the kinks in your body. While all this is happening, you can relax on the adjustable Neckbath pillow.

Four things to look out for when choosing a bathtub.

  • If you have enough space in your bathroom, a clawfoot, standalone tub makes for an interesting centrepiece.
  • Most HDB homes now allow for a small bathtub, but check with your interior designer which one is suitable for the size of your bathroom.
  • Fibreglass, ceramic or porcelain – the choice is yours.
  • If you fancy holding a Jacuzzi party, there are tubs that offer this function.

After a relaxing bath, all you need is a proper rest. Always invest in a good mattress and a bed frame. The Rea bed features “wings” and refined textiles and leather. In 2006, Wallpaper magazine gave the Best Design award to the Rea Bed, a bed that was designed by Chi Wing Lo who was born in Hongkong and now resides in Athens.

Another bed to consider is the Park Uno bed that is made of metal and coated with glossy brown nickel with removable fabric and leather. The bed is designed by Carlo Colombo, an award-winning Italian architect who creates with high artistic value.

Four things to look out for when choosing a bed frame.

  • It is about size: Make sure the bed frame fits in your bedroom.
  • If you need storage, there are lots of designs that have pullout drawers to store bedding items such as bedsheets and pillowcases.
  • Spring or slats? The rule of thumb is spring is good for spring mattress while slats are best teamed with foam mattress.
  • Get a sturdy headboard if you tend to read or watch TV in bed.
