Smart mirrors, digital showers, and high-tech toilets were once bathroom features that existed in homes of the future. But as more and more people are willing to invest in the latest bathroom technology – thus creating ever-increasing market demand – the future is closer than you might think.

So, whether you’re ready to outfit your bathroom with the latest features and gadgets or just want to know what’s what, here are a handful of projects that might prompt you to think “What took so long?”

Smart Mirrors

Not all bathroom lighting is created equal. For example, you may need a brighter light when applying make-up or shaving but can do with a softer light for washing your hands. Now you can get just the right amount of vanity light with a smart mirror. Some models enable the use of voice commands to turn the mirror light on and off, adjust brightness, or set preferences like “make-up mode”. Some smart mirrors also can control the shower, faucet, and even toilet if you are looking for an entirely connected bathroom experience.

New Bathroom Conveniences

Digital Shower Controls

Sure, you can turn the handle to start the stream of water before stepping into the shower. But why bother when now you can control your shower with your voice, from a smartphone, or a control panel? Digital shower controls allow users to set up showering preferences such as water temperature and duration of shower, have the shower warm up to a desired temp before stepping in, and pause should you be pulled away for any reason.

Innovative Faucets

Touch-free faucets have become commonplace, especially in public restrooms. According to some, touch-free faucets have the annoying quality of forcing you to place your hands just so to activate the flow of water. Older models often produce water that’s either too hot or too cold. But now, faucet manufacturers have added sensors that detect a person’s hands anywhere around the faucet. When your hands are clean as a whistle, simply tap the lever-style handle or any section of the spout to turn the water off.

High-Tech Toilets

While it may not look that different from a standard toilet, a high-tech toilet has features that are both convenient and eco-friendly. For example, a high-tech toilet can flush itself after each use, minimizing the spread of germs. The lid can open and close automatically and water jets can rinse your bottom for a fresher, cleaner bathroom experience. Some models are even covered with a ceramic glaze that reduces bacteria build-up and mold growth. What’s more, they tend to use less water than standard toilets, making them a more earth-friendly choice.
