Why Do We Ponder Life in the Shower?

The shower is a strange place. It is a place where most people stand naked and ponder life.

But why? Why is it that we always stop and think about life’s deepest problems when we’re in the shower?

We’ve come up with a few reasons why we think about life’s unanswerable questions in the shower:

It’s Peaceful
When you’re in the shower, you can relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of your routine. When you’re relaxed and stress-free, your mind can drift and wander onto random subjects.

It’s Private
When you’re all alone and have no interruptions, you can have a good old daydream.

It’s Boring
When you don’t have to concentrate on something stimulating, you free up your subconscious.

It Messes with your Biology
Studies have proven that when you are in the shower, your brain releases dopamine and more alpha waves also flow through the brain, both of which increase creativity.

It’s Wet
Water is associated with contemplation – think waterfalls and rivers. We associate these places with thinking deeply.

It Wakes You Up
Showering signals the start of a new day and wakes you up – this helps you to be more alert and think up those wacky ideas.

So that’s why we think up the craziest ideas when we’re in the shower!

Look out for our daily #showerthoughts that we’ll be posting this week on Facebook and Twitter!

Who Wins in the Battle of Black vs White Bathrooms?

Monochrome is very on trend at the moment, meaning that you want to be styling your bathroom in blacks and whites.
But which is trendier for your bathroom – black or white?
Let’s look at why both colours are great for styling bathrooms.

White

A white bathroom always seems like a clean bathroom. Some may see white as being clinical, but if you want your bathroom to seem spotless then it’s the right way to go.

White can also open up a space to make it seem larger than it really is.

Additionally, white makes your bathroom look brighter and lighter, reflecting any natural light.

Try some of our trendy accessories to create a clean, white bathroom.

Our Giotto bath mat in white is a modern accessory for your bathroom and is available for £32 HERE.

Our Kent toilet brush in white is also available HERE and to finish off your bathroom with some elegance, go for our Jamila set of freestanding bathroom accessories, available for £58 HERE.

Black

If you’re willing to take a risk, the decision to style your bathroom in black will definitely pay off.

Black creates the illusion of having an expensive, bespoke bathroom.

Black, whilst not opening up a room and making it feel spacious, stops it from feeling too open and empty.

Black is not as common as white, so will make people remember your bathroom.

All in all, although it might not be as practical, if you’re willing to try it, we think that black can be much more effective than white.

For an opulent bathroom, try our Aqua Diamante black shower curtain, available for only £10,99 HERE.

Our Twist bathroom accessory set is also elegant and luxurious, and can transform your bathroom for just £125 – available HERE.

Our Paris Toilet seat also adds a touch of class to your bathroom in an unexpected way, available for £32.25 HERE.

We are definitely in favour of black.
A combination of black and white is also perfect, but if you’re going to be bold and focus on one colour, go for black for style and opulence.


Make Your Toilet Your Throne

A person’s toilet should be their throne. With our ‘The Throne’ lidstick, you can make it just that.

Choose our Italian Showers for Ultimate Luxury

Forget about baths – showers are now all the rage.

Jacuzzi bath tubs are less sought after as many are turning to stylish showers for a luxury washing experience. With the right accessories and finishing touches, your shower can make you feel like you’re standing beneath a serene waterfall on an exotic island.

To feel like you’re showering in luxury (or under an exotic waterfall!), finish off your shower with our Galileo shower head.

Why the Bathroom Should Replace the Kitchen as the Heart of the Home

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home.

But at Ziggiziggi, we disagree. Bathrooms beat kitchens any day.

Sure, the bathroom is where you go to do your number twos, but it is really so much more than that.

1) Bath time. Need we say more?

With a few candles and some bubble bath, baths are a time of relaxation and indulgence. Kitchens on the other hand are where we stress out about mess and overcooked food.

2) Bathrooms are often the scene of hilarious moments. Whether you’re helping your best friend who’s suffering the after-effects of a boozy evening, or watching your mum in a panic trying to get ready whilst running late, these times are far more eventful and entertaining than mealtimes.

3) The smell of fragrant shampoos, shower gels and bubble baths definitely win over the smell of burnt toast.

4) This is one for the girls… getting dolled up in front of the bathroom mirror is undoubtedly the best part of a night out. Who doesn’t love spending time in the bathroom making themselves feel glam?

5) You time.

In the bathroom you can lock out the world and enjoy some peaceful alone time. The best time to ponder life’s most unanswerable questions is always in the shower or on the toilet.
