smart bathroom
In a lot of ways, the bathroom hasn’t changed in many years. Baths are usually fitted against the wall, showers are often over the bath, and sinks are white, with storage nearby. However, the recent surge in popularity of home-technology has brought with it some innovations that can bring your bathroom into the 21st century, improving it in ways you didn’t even know were possible!

If you’re going to be updating your bathroom soon, why not make use of the latest technology to create a space that works for you. Bathroom technology has the potential to enhance your comfort and save you time and effort in the morning, as well as setting you up for the day ahead in the right way. Read on to view the latest in bathroom technology:

Eco-friendly taps

By aerating the water, eco-friendly taps are able to save water by limiting the flow, in turn, this reduces energy bills. An eco-friendly smart tap can also control temperature, and filter water to ensure that it’s safe to drink. Especially for inner city homes, this is an excellent feature – ensuring that water is clean and has a fresh taste, no matter where you are in the country.

Chromotherapy shower

Chromotherapy promotes wellness by using light-coloured wall panels to relieve tiredness, provoke enthusiasm, calmness, serenity, inspiration and vitality. It involves using coloured lights in your shower to promote certain feelings and, combined with the relaxing effects of a good shower, can start your day off perfectly.
Even if you’re sceptical of the wellness benefits of a chromotherapy shower, they can still be a good option for people wishing to introduce new lighting into their bathroom.

Smart mirrors

Smart mirrors are the type of product that, in a few years’ time, we will wonder how we ever lived without. Choose a smart mirror with sensors for lighting – helping you to take the best selfies, apply make-up in faux natural light, or adjust the level of light so that it’s perfect for relaxing in the bath. An inbuilt heating feature ensures that the mirror won’t steam up whilst it’s in use – meaning you’ll be able to receive news and weather bulletins or catch up on your favourite TV programmes whilst brushing your teeth or having a shower.

Digital showers

With a digital shower, it’s easy to control pressure and temperature. You can even add pre-sets to make sure that each member of the family can have the shower exactly as they like it – there’s no longer a need to fiddle with the temperature gauge as soon as you get in the shower. In other models, it’s possible to control the shower with a remote control from up to 10 metres away, meaning you won’t have to lean in and get splashed when you turn on the shower.

Built-in bathroom speakers

With the move towards smart home systems and speakers that has taken place over the past few years, bringing speakers into the bathroom is the logical next step. Integrated bathroom speakers mean that you can listen to music, podcasts or news bulletins as you shower. Hook up your mobile phone or sound system to the speakers through Bluetooth or control the speaker with your voice by connecting the speakers to Amazon Echo or Google Home.
