Chromotherapy lights are worth the investment? - Tub and shower lighting
I was working late last night on a great project and had the chance to get some great photo's at night. I turned off the lights to this bathroom and snapped some pictures of the tub's Chromotherapy LED lighting. This morning me and my girls where doing crafts and paperwork and both my wife and eldest daughter where drooling over the LED tub.
My wife and daughter each picked a different colour when I asked them their favourite. Both of them suffer on occassions from bad migraine headaches. My wife likes the colour turquoise colours and my daughter the colours with more of a purple hue.
What colour would you set for a head ache?
What colour would you pick to just relax?
This lighting is only the tip of the iceberg and on this job we will have glowing shelves and a custom RGB light feature. I can only imagine what the neighbors will think seeing all these custom colours glowing out of this Vancouver Condo.
Chromotherapy lights - What the colours help with.
Didn't think of that! What does that cost? lol

This web site has a good reference list for the colours and what they can be used for.
Here is a link that outlines what the different colours do in the way of healing.
Using RGB LED's for custom ceiling lighting and chromotherapy
We hooked up the custom ceiling lighting in this bathroom the other day and the effects are amazing. Here is a peak.
The colours do not come out that well on my IPhone but I tweaked the colour in the editing software to try and show how intense they really are.
We are going to try a proper camera with a tripod once we rap this project up.
We built this lighting system with a large heat sink, three strips of RGB LED's wired in series.
The RGB Controller has a remote that is pretty slick. My client ordered the materials and designed the system with many parts from Environmental Lights.

Controlling your chromotherapy lighting with your smart phone (WiFi Controller)
I was in picking up a new system yesterday and speaking to my low voltage LED guru. We discussed my current job and my new one coming up and I showed him the controller we used. He trumped that remote with a WiFi version on his smart phone (IPhone).
Apparently the App is free and with your phone's WiFi you can change the colour of your chromotherapy lighting system.
So cool. I ordered one for my place and hopefully will surprise my girls for Christmas!
Coquitlam Chromotheraphy Lighting
With any bathroom renovation is is key to start with a tile layout before you even start building or rebuilding the room. The tile layout can help with lighting layout by defining some fixed points in the room.

My Buddies place looking from the backyard up to the bathroom window. Directly behind this window is the tub. My buddies place looks out onto a green belt so I suggested we replace the frosted privacy glass for clear glass. After last night I'm so glad we did because the look is epic from the back forty!
I love this lighting. It's Green technology and adds so much to these bathrooms.
The lighting does not need to stay in the bathroom only. Here is a peak at my book keepers pad. I made a few sid lit shelfs for her.

That might be the missing piece to this bathroom.....
Here in the video below you can see another option in Chromotheraphy Design. I built four perfectly square niche boxes 30cm x 30cm x 15cm and each will be lit by a 10 watt halogen puck light from above. The look is great and another way of casting some great colour into the room.
Chromotherapy Shower Glass Panel.
We are going to side lit this shower's 4' Glass Panel with a strip of LED RGB's. Waterproofing the system is a tricky step and there is no direction from either the TCNA or TTMAC on how it should be done.
I spoke with the head of the TTMAC last week and discussed this point. I was told that the process of getting a specification takes five years and requirs the manufactures of the products to print of manuals and play by plays.
I do not see this happening in the near future so any of these Choromotherapy installs will be outside the box.
Here is a look at my process. Remember this is not approved by Ardex, Schluter or the LED lighting company. It is however "Way Cool" and approved by both me and my buddy. I can not wait to get the glass installed!
Chromotherapy Shampoo Shower Niche with Tile
I used an off cut of white laminated glass to prepare the right side of this Chromotherapy Shower Niche I'm building. The glass was installed with Kerdi Fix and then Braced with some blocks from the back side. I later tied the Ardex 8+9 over the glass on the front side and used more Kerdi fix on the back side.
You can see the brass coloured diffusers in this picture. This niche has 5 - 30" LED lights.
Ideally there would be no cut in the the glass or seam. The plan is to have a couple small shelfs on that side as well so we will place one over this seam and then complete the waterproofing process.
