As many of us are spending more time working from home, we are all looking to make our lives at home simpler and easier. Thanks to modern technology, there are now solutions to irritating problems that we would otherwise face on a daily basis. Sometimes, these solutions can be used in places that we would not have previously thought, such as bathrooms!
Here are five different ways that you can incorporate technology in your bathroom:
1. Motion Sensors
Motion-activated lighting and automatic faucets are common in public spaces, but we never seem to think of installing such technology at home. Not only does this help to save the environment by ensuring that the lights and faucets are turned off when they aren’t being used, but it’ll help you to save money on your bills too!
2. Water Filters
So, you’ve heard of water filters for your kitchen to purify your drinking water, but what about for your shower water? Chlorine and chloramine are used to ensure that water is clean, but it can cause a lot of problems for your body. These chemicals can damage or irritate your skin and hair, especially if you or your loved ones have pre-existing skin conditions. Investing in a shower filtration system can reduce the presence of these chemicals in your water when showering and ensure that the water is gentler on the skin. See this link for more information on filters and how to purchase one for your bathroom.
3. Chromatherapy Functions
Taking a shower can be relaxing, but what if you could take it one step further? Imagine coming home from a hard day of work to a shower fitted with LED colored lights and different jets to enhance your mood. Chromatherapy is a form of self-care through colored lights and is proven to improve moods. Think purple for relaxation, green for balance, and white for clarification!
4. Waterproof Televisions
Now this piece of technology is definitely not essential. Nor is it really solving an everyday problem, but a waterproof television does mean that you can enjoy your bath in peace without balancing your tablet or laptop! As with other televisions, their waterproof counterparts do come in different shapes and sizes to suit all budgets.
5. Smart Mirrors
Another form of innovative lighting for your bathroom can be found through smart mirrors, which can adjust lighting automatically to optimize the natural light in your bathroom. In-built mirror heaters also mean that you don’t have to wait for the steam to clear after showering and allow you to get ready much quicker. If you’re willing to splash the cash, these smart mirrors are capable of having smartphone functions that will show the weather and display the latest news updates!
You might now have found the missing piece to your Zen bathroom space or found a solution to a problem that you didn’t even know you had. So, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and transform your bathroom!
