Technology has slowly infiltrated all aspects of our life, but most of us have never thought that there might come a day when we might rely on gadgets in the bathroom. However, since people nowadays use the bathroom not only for convenience, but also for relaxation, there are indeed numerous tech innovations that can make the bathroom a more enjoyable space. Keep on reading to discover some clever ways in which you can give your bathroom a futuristic vibe.
A few smart lightbulbs and a clever voice control like Echo can give you the opportunity to adjust the bathroom lighting vocally and create a serene atmosphere. Voice activation can also be used for other bathroom elements like the toilet or the shower. A voice controlled toilet is a great way to minimize the spread of bacteria in the bathroom, and a voice controlled shower can also make the bathing process a lot more enjoyable.
How would you like to listen to your favorite music while taking a shower or while getting ready for work? Well, you can easily do this with a portable, waterproof speaker. If you don’t want the speaker to be visible and ruin your bathroom décor, you can opt for built-in speakers. If you have a bathtub, and you enjoy long and relaxing baths, you might also consider mounting a television in the bathroom. The television can be hidden behind a special TV mirror frame in order not to disrupt the overall bathroom décor.
Speaking of mirrors, there are numerous ways in which you can improve this otherwise basic bathroom element. For example, the LUV mirror features a heating system which prevents steaming as well as a smart lighting system. The functions of the mirror are controlled through a touchless control panel. Nowadays, you can even find smart mirrors which can give you some helpful beauty feedback, or which can allow you to watch the news while doing your daily beauty routine.
Digitally controlled showers are a rather common thing nowadays, but there are numerous other tech innovations that can make the shower process more enjoyable. For example, you can opt for chromotherapy showers which transmit relaxing shades of color while you bathe. You can also opt for programmable shower controls to regulate the water temperature according to your preferences, but also to monitor the water consumption or to adjust the lighting. Some showers even come with remote controls, so that you can turn on the shower from anywhere in your home.
Water conservation gadgets
The shower is not the only fixture that can be enhanced to conserve water. You can also opt for digital sink faucets which not only monitor the water consumption, but can also be programmed to switch themselves off when they are not in use. If your budget allows it, you can even opt for an ecological sink which captures and reuses excess water.
We already mentioned voice controlled toilets, but believe it or not, there are even better options out there. For example, you can opt for a smart toilet with an automatic lid, a heating system, adjustable pressure options and an automatic air deodorizer.
A robotic mop
Robotic vacuum cleaners are pretty mainstream nowadays, but you can make your life even easier if you also opt for a robotic mop. You can use it in the entire house, or you can use it only in the bathroom. This device is particularly useful if you splash a lot when you bathe. With a robotic mop, you don’t have to worry about cleaning the bathroom floor after each bath or shower. All you have to do is push a button and the smart robot will take care of the rest. The robot has a smart navigational system, so you can program it to only clean the bathroom perimeter.
