4 Ways Technology is Transforming the Bathroom Experience

The bathroom space is changing, it’s becoming more than a place to take care of personal hygiene. It’s now a space for relaxation and rejuvenation. With the rise of technology, the bathroom has become a hub for innovation, offering new and exciting ways to enhance the overall experience. In this post, we’ll explore how technology is playing a meaningful role in the bathroom.

  1. Smart Showers: Smart showers are changing the way we think about showers today. With features such as adjustable water temperature, pressure, and flow, smart showers allow you to customize your shower experience it ways we’ve never dreamt was possible. Some smart showers even come with built-in bluetooth speakers that allow you to listen to music or take a phone call while you shower. I think of the Kohler Moxie and Moen Smart Shower System with voice enabled features.
  2. Ambient Lighting and Aromatherapy: Ambient lighting and aromatherapy are becoming increasingly popular in the bathroom, and technology is making it easier than ever to create a relaxing and rejuvenating environment. I immediately think of MrSteam and the innovated residential steam packages that immerse yourself in a truly transformative steam shower experience with ambient lighting and aromatherapy.
  3. High-Tech Vanity Mirrors: Vanity mirrors are also getting a technological upgrade, with features such as built-in lights, magnifying mirrors, alexa, TV and even hidden style digital displays that show the weather or your schedule for the day. Vanity mirrors has definitely taken leaps forwards and can transform the bathroom into a functional and stylish space, making your morning routine more enjoyable.
  4. Voice Enabled Integration: With Alexa and Google now embedded into many products, what I get really excited about is the potential for creating routines. One Kitchen & Bath leader whom I admire, Michael Rhodes, has always painted the best picture of this. Imagine saying “Good Morning Alexa,” and the routine begins – the floor heats up, the shower starts at your perfect temperature, your favorite music or podcast begins playing, the toleit seats heat and the lighting turns on to the perfect brightness, all before you even enter the room. We are here, and the possibilities allow us to create the experience we desire.

Technology is playing a much more meaningful role in the bathroom than ever before. From smart showers and toilets to high-tech vanity mirrors, it’s making the bathroom a more innovative and relaxing place to stay and rejuvenation. Whether you’re looking to improve your health and wellness or simply want to create a more enjoyable space, technology has the power to transform the bathroom into a place of comfort and relaxation.
