Technology is making our lives easier in many ways, and the bathroom is particularly primed for innovation. From better lighting to smart devices, technological improvements will continue to grow in popularity in 2022. Here’s a quick sample of specific smart bathroom upgrades that are growing in popularity.
Well-lit bathrooms make it easier to accomplish the necessary daily tasks and make any space feel more open and inviting. Many people are choosing to install multiple lighting options, including colored lights in the shower, dimming lights for the general space, and bright LED lights built into mirrors.
LED mirrors are an especially great choice if you want the most light possible while applying makeup, shaving, or doing other tasks that require you to get a close look at your face, and the energy-efficient bulbs last for longer than other types of light sources. For even more functionality, some LED mirrors include built-in speakers and voice activation.
Toilet upgrades are another anticipated trend for 2022. Bidets have recently gained popularity in the United States, and options range from basic water streams to advanced models with multiple pressure and temperature settings. Installing a bidet is relatively easy, so it’s a simple change that will have a big impact. Some are taking toilet upgrades even further, however, by purchasing a smart toilet with features like motion-activated lights, automatic lids, seat warmers, and the capacity to self-clean.
Luxurious Shower Systems
As showers continue to blend luxury and functionality, multi-functional shower systems will grow in popularity as well. Smart shower systems allow you to change the brightness and color of the lights, adjust the water temperature, control the different showerhead spray settings, and play music all from a single location.
These luxury shower upgrades could be as minor as installing a Bluetooth showerhead speaker or as major as installing body sprays and surround-sound shower speakers. For less extensive renovations, people are opting for shower panels with built-in temperature controls and body sprays.
