If you plan a bathroom renovation in 2023, consider incorporating smart technology into your new space. Smart technology is becoming increasingly popular in homes, and there are several ways you can use it to create a more efficient, convenient, and stylish bathroom.
When it comes to home renovations, the bathroom is often one of the most important spaces to update. Not only is it a necessary space for hygiene and grooming, but it can also be a relaxing and calming oasis in your home. With the right design choices, you can use smart technology to create a smarter bathroom that meets all your needs.
YUNLIGHTS Flush Mount Waterproof LED Bathroom Light
This IP66 waterproof LED bathroom light is perfect for bathrooms where water can negatively impact. This waterproof light can withstand direct exposure to water but should not be submerged. Therefore, it is best to install it above a sink or shower. Its design allows you to choose the colour of light to match the mood of your bathroom. It also has music sync features to create the perfect mood. Another great option is an intelligent ceiling light that uses Alexa and Google Assistant for voice control. This light is compatible with Alexa and Google Home and has a five-year warranty. The smart light also works well as a bathroom pendant light.
Moxie Showerhead + Smart Speaker
The Kohler Moxie Showerhead features a Bluetooth speaker that’s built-in with Alexa. The showerhead itself is smartly designed, and the speaker is water-resistant. Its built-in magnets hold it securely, and you can quickly charge it with the bundled cordless dock. The Moxie’s Bluetooth speaker has a range of up to six hours. You can activate your smart showerhead with a simple hand gesture or talk to it. The Kohler Touchless Toilet can also be operated by waving your hand near the lever. The Moxie Showerhead + Smart Speaker is an ideal way to add
technology to your bathroom. You can listen to music or talk to the built-in voice assistant while showering. Moreover, you can also use the smart speaker with the Aquifer Refine water purification system to rid your water of harmful contaminants. The showerhead is compatible with most Bluetooth-enabled devices and also features cordless charging.
The Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale is a great addition to your bathroom design. It measures weight and fat percentage and sends those results to a personal online account. You can also use it to monitor your BMI and track other important health metrics. The Aria is available in black and white, with smooth corners. Its small circular LCD readout has crisp grey text. The Aria is a digital scale that resembles your everyday bathroom scale. Its sleek design, which features four rows of bubbles, is both attractive and functional. It also syncs with the Fitbit app to keep track of your weight loss progress.
Automated soap dispensers
Automated soap dispensers in a bathroom can save money and space, and are an important part of a smart bathroom. They automatically dispense a predetermined amount of soap at a time. This helps minimize waste, and the mechanism also works for other liquids. Automated soap dispensers have sensors that detect when handwash is running low and dispenses the appropriate amount. The technology is 100% safe and helps reduce resource wastage. Automated dispensers connect to Wi-Fi networks, which allows them to share information about usage, soap levels, and more.
Self-cleaning toilets are among the many technological advances in the toilet industry. They use a unique bowl and tank design to flush waste and clean the bowl, which cleans itself. They also use chemicals that release into the water tank and a UV light that reflects off the seat lid. These chemicals interact with the photocatalytic ceramic cast of the toilet bowl to remove dirt. However, they do require some maintenance. Toto’s self-cleaning toilet, for instance, features an integrated UV light that breaks down dirt in the bowl. This reduces the need for harsh cleaning chemicals. Alternatively, Kohler’s Veil Intelligent self-cleaning toilet uses UV light but does not clean the bowl. Using this technology, you can create a modern, eco-friendly bathroom with your next bathroom remodels without worrying about clogged toilet bowls.
Bluetooth bathroom mirrors
Bluetooth bathroom mirrors offer a variety of features. They can play music, feature surround sound speakers, and even connect to your phone. These mirrors have a built-in Bluetooth receiver, which allows you to control the music through your cell phone or tablet. This allows you to stay connected even when you are not in the
bathroom. Some models feature a touchscreen or LED lights. This makes makeup application much more effortless. Bluetooth-enabled mirrors can display various information, such as local weather, news, and calendar. Some mirrors can also be controlled via voice commands.
With all the technological advances in bathroom design, it can be hard to know which features are worth incorporating into your home. We’ve highlighted some of our favourite features that are available right now and explained a little bit about how each one works.
