“Installing bathroom tech is a great way to take your remodel or addition to the next level. Aside from adding extra comfort, bathroom tech will also improve the efficiency of your home. Here’s a look at five high-tech gadgets that will turn your bathroom into the ultra-modern — and convenient — space of your dreams.
HIGH-TECH TOILET FIXTURES. High-tech toilet fixtures may not sound exciting, but they’re an important part of creating a clean and modern bathroom. (http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2015/01/the-lowly-bathroom-goes-high-tech/index.htm).
LED-lighted toilet seats. Will allow you to find your toilet at night without turning on lights or walking in the dark.
Temperature-controlled seats ensure your toilet is comfortable no matter the temperature inside your home.
Self-cleaning toilets eliminate bacteria buildup in and on your toilet and prevent unsightly mineral staining with automated cleaning.
Chromotherapy Showers use color-changing LCD panels to create a restorative bathing experience – to help you wake up in the morning or relax at night – and lighting presets that will help you achieve your desired effect.
SOAKING TUBS. Smaller, more efficient soaking tubs are replacing larger Jacuzzi tubs, and they come in unique shapes and offer air-based massage jets. They come in stone, copper and even some man-made minerals – also employ energy-efficient tech that will reduce your energy costs.
WATERPROOF TELEVISIONS. Having a TV nearby can make bath time more fun, and waterproof TVs are common in many renovations projects and come in a variety of prices. Some even have internet connectability.
REFRIGERATED CABINETS. Popular in many renovations, cooled cabinets will allow you to keep medicine and temperature-sensitive cosmetics close by without having to worry about spoiling. You can also use them to keep beverages and snacks cool. They are relatively cost-friendly and much more efficient than mini-fridges.
CONCLUSION: All the above new bathroom technologies can add value and comfort to your home…and for many homeowners, that’s worth more than the additional cost.”
