7 High Tech Solutions for a Smart Bathroom

You’ve probably heard about smart home technology advancements such as automated blinds, lighting controls, and smart outlets. But what about the room that you start and end your day in – the bathroom? One of the most exciting things about remodeling your bathroom in 2020 is all of the high-tech items you can include to make your life easier and make your space more convenient and comfortable. Here are seven smart additions for your bathroom remodel:

1. LCD Shower Panels

The days of turning the knob “just so” to get the right temperature for your shower are over. With LCD panels, you can control the exact temperature, steam, water flow, and even music all from inside the shower. Many of these systems can even be combined with your smart home device for voice control as well.

2. Digital Faucets

Save money on water usage and make your house more efficient with a digital faucet. Today’s digital faucets reduce tap flow, have digital temperature control settings, are touchless, and even have infrared technology that turns off when hands leave the space under the tap. A great feature for homes with kids, smart faucets can be programmed with timed settings for things like hand washing and brushing teeth.

3. High Tech Toilets

Low-flush toilets have been around for a long time, but new smart toilets take water conservation and convenience to a new level. Recently becoming more popular in the US, Japanese-style toilets are packed with smart functions like voice control, personalization for each family member, bides, motion sense lids, and even a nightlight.

4. Waterproof TV

Many people choose to put a TV in the bathroom to watch the morning news, relax and unwind with their favorite show, or make sure they don’t miss a single play when their team is on. Waterproof TVs can be mounted inside the shower or over a soaking tub without worries of it being splashed. Whatever you use the TV for, now you have the option to place it in the optimal spot to watch while you’re in the bathroom.

5. Refrigerated Bathroom Cabinets

Many of us keep medicines in the bathroom, as that’s where the “medicine cabinet” is usually located. However, the heat and humidity in the bathroom actually make it one of the worst places to store medications, especially prescriptions. A refrigerated bathroom drawer is a great way to store medicine as you can control for a consistent temperature. Alternatively, if you’re just looking for a convenient place to keep drinks cool and at hand, refrigerated cabinets are an excellent addition to the bathroom, creating a luxe hotel feel.

6. Towel Warmers

There’s nothing better than stepping out of the shower or bath to a warm and cozy towel. While traditional wall towel warmers have been around for decades, new options in warming drawers are a great addition to contemporary bathroom cabinetry. If you’re not renovating any time soon, you can get a similar experience with a free-standing electric towel warmer in a modern design.

7. Smart Lighting

Control the lights in your bathroom with a remote, your phone, or even with voice commands when hooked up to a smart home device. One of the best things about smart lighting is that you can create custom light settings. So, you can create different lighting for when you’re relaxing in the tub and want soft lighting, getting ready in the mirror with bright lights, and even a lighting strip to stay on at night for more visibility without turning on the main lights.

Many of these items can be easily incorporated with your smart home technology and smart plugs to create a truly connected and convenient experience. If you’re thinking about upgrading your bathroom, schedule a consultation with the bathroom renovation experts at Brothers. Whether you have a standalone project, like installing new light fixtures, or want to completely change your current bathroom layout with a full remodel, our experienced tradespeople are ready for the job.
