smart bathroom

Having a smart bathroom is about more than just a theme or a style that you pick for it. It’s also about its functionality. Needless to say, you need to start adding some smart technology to your bathroom. This tech, allows you to have more fun in the bathroom, relax more efficiently, and even save resources (water, power, soap, etc.) while you’re at it. Here are several adjustments you could make to imbue your bathroom with the latest smart technology.

1. Digitally controlled faucet

The first improvement that you should add to your bathroom is a digitally-controlled faucet. For a lot of people, the idea of setting the right water temperature is almost a meme-worthy event. A part of an inch in the wrong direction and you instantly switch from cold to boiling (and vice-versa). With a digitally controlled faucet, you can set the exact temperature of the water. Other than this, these faucets are programmable to save, and they are enhanced with hands-free technology. For some people, avoiding soap-covered handles would, on its own, be a reason enough to go for this option.

2. Soap dispenser

The majority of advantages of a digitally controlled faucet apply here, as well. First of all, a digitalized soap dispenser that works with a sensor is much more hygienic. Second, it helps you use the exact amount of soap every time. It saves money but also helps you know exactly how much soap you have left. While this may seem like a minor thing, once you get used to it, you will come to see it as a major quality of life improvement. It is a handy investment that saves you from a world of trouble.

3. A bidet

The next thing you need to consider is the installation of new features into your bathroom. Namely, a bidet is a healthy, hygienic, and eco-friendly addition to your bathroom. High-tech bidets can help you improve on every single one of these features once and for all. These bidets come in different sizes (elongated and standard). The thing is that these bidet sizes may be used to fit your bathroom. The vast majority of bidets are standard, but this way you get some room for creativity.

4. Smart showerhead

A smart showerhead is an all-in-one device. In fact, it gives people something that they’ve always wanted. It adds a Bluetooth speaker to the showerhead, which means that you can connect your device from as much as 30 feet away. Everyone sings in the shower as things get more convenient and more immersive. Sure, you could add a standard Bluetooth speaker to your bathroom, but there’s always a risk that the sound of running water will reduce the quality or the volume of the sound.

Some showerheads also come with a digital temperature display or an automatic colour changing mode. The latter is something that can further enhance the spa experience in your own bathroom. Other than this, there’s also a series of other benefits that can come with such a quality shower. Some have an ionic filter, which is, on its own, an investment worth making. Digital showerheads can even save a setting so that you walk into the exact same showering conditions the next time around.

5. Smart mirrors

The thing you need to keep in mind is the importance of bathroom entertainment. It’s a feature that you might have never given much thought to but, at the same time, something that you won’t be able to live without, once you actually try it out. An interactive mirror is a sci-fi-like feature that might completely revolutionize your toothbrushing, shaving or make-up applying sessions. At times, it may make you want to shout mirror, mirror on the wall.

6. Smart toothbrush

You don’t have to restrict your bathroom modernization to major fixtures. A device like a smart toothbrush can drastically improve your dental hygiene. First of all, it can track your brushing habits, remind you of a skipped session and provide you with outstanding dental care. Second, it provides an unparalleled number of brush strokes per minute and comes with a pre-installed auto timer. Lastly, it has a pressure sensor, which will allow you to evenly brush your teeth.

In conclusion

At the end of the day, you need to understand that you don’t have to introduce all of these changes at the same time. Take some time to develop a formidable strategy that agrees with your budget. This way, you’ll get things done without much pressure or stress.
