High-tech bathrooms may yet be far from being commonplace, they are nevertheless great investments, as you are virtually future-proofing your bathroom. Bathroom and kitchen remodel expert DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen discusses high-tech bathroom upgrades you should consider.
Digitally-controlled showers can let you create the perfect shower experience. A typical digital shower system allows fine control over water pressure and temperature. Instead of traditional wall-mounted shower heads, multiple nozzles can be installed on the walls and ceiling. You can have it set so water feels like a light rain shower, or increase the strength for intense cleaning. In addition to a wall panel and remote control, certain digital shower systems can be controlled using an app.
Today’s high-tech toilets have automation on virtually every function, such as self-opening and closing lids, self-warming seats and automatic flushing. Certain models feature a bidet with digitally-controlled water pressure, much like digital shower systems, as well as sensors that automatically determine the appropriate amount of water to flush depending on the activity. Most of these toilets fit with existing plumbing and piping. If it doesn’t, a skilled bathroom remodel contractor can make adjustments to ensure a proper fit.
Touchless faucets use low-power infrared to sense if a hand is placed under the faucet, and pumps out water as needed. In addition to minimizing transfer of germs and bacteria—there’s no lever or handle to touch—it’s easier to use, especially for family members with limited accessibility. Touchless faucets are water-efficient, and ideal for activities that often leave faucets turned on, such as when one brushes their teeth. Thanks to the lack of moving parts, touchless faucets are less likely to suffer mechanical failures. With proper installation, care, and maintenance, touchless faucets can be expected to last for up to 30 years.
