A well-designed bathroom can be more than just a place to wash up in the morning, it can be a hub of luxury and exquisite comfort in your home. Much of this luxury comes from the fixtures and material selections used in your bathroom, such as faucets, cabinets, and floor tiling.
However, if you are in the process of a bathroom remodel, don’t underestimate how much of an impact a few state-of-the-art technologies can have on your way of life. The following tech innovations can add features and conveniences to your bathroom without sacrificing timeless craft and classic luxury. Consider each as you look for ideas on how to execute the perfect bathroom remodeling project.
PERSONALIZED SHOWERING EXPERIENCES
Showering should give you time to relax and recharge in a way that suits your personal style. The Kohler DTV II is a digital interface system that allows you to control your shower water flow, lights, steam levels, music, and more, all from an easy-to-read LCD display mounted right on the shower wall. The system even has a chromotherapy rain panel, which uses principles of light and color therapy to boost your relaxation.
The DTV II connects to media through Ethernet, so that your showers will always have your perfect soundtrack. It allows for several custom pre-sets, so that various users can choose and save their preferred showering experiences on the same system.
After a long day at work or a cold afternoon shoveling the driveway, does anything feel better than taking a relaxing bath in your master bathroom spa? The only way it could possibly be better is if you had a fireplace installed right alongside your tub to add extra warmth and comfort. Indeed, these days Airoom is finding that more and more people are opting to install fireplaces in their tub or shower areas. Not only do they add to the comfort and luxury of the rooms, but fireplaces also provide a nice decorative element that perfectly complements your bathroom’s design.
Whether you are tired of your mirrors fogging up during a hot shower or simply feel like the bright lights from your wall sconces or ceiling lamps are ruining the serene mood of your bathroom, LED mirrors offer a compelling alternative. With heating and lighting functions, these mirrors can be placed inside your shower and pre-heated before you climb in, so that they are ready to de-fog themselves. They also offer soft and natural-colored lighting that is perfect for lightly illuminating your bathroom while you apply makeup and perform other morning preparation rituals.
Best of all, most LEDs have an average lifespan of 50,000 hours. Because of this, the light and heat you get from your LED mirror will be far more energy-efficient and longer lasting than most lamps or bathroom fans.
A bathroom can be made or broken by something as simple as a showerhead. Harsh, pounding showers are neither comfortable nor satisfying, but with an Hansgrohe AIR showerhead, you will never have to worry about that issue again. These showerheads infuse each droplet of water with air that not only provides a soft and soothing shower experience, but also helps to conserve water. The addition of anti-calcification technology makes these products among the easiest-to-clean showerheads on the market.
Whether you choose to add one or all of these technologies to your bathroom redesign, you will be making an investment in your own comfort. A well-designed bathroom should be a place to recharge and completely relax, and each of these gadgets only helps to further that mission. Use these innovative ideas to dream up a bathroom design that is personal to you.
