Technology has been making almost every aspect of our lives easier and more efficient for many years now. When you are planning your new bathroom, you should research the many new ways technology can be incorporated to give you a modern and accessible luxury space.
Walk in showers are stylish and contemporary and give the bathroom an open and light feel. They are also perfect for making your bathroom more accessible. But what tech can you consider for your walk in shower to make it that bit extra special?
One of the biggest pieces of technology to be developed in recent years is the smart or digital shower. Digital showers are a fully inclusive and innovative way to shower and offer a range of benefits. Smart showers are very safe as your desired temperature can be set remotely before you begin to shower and the water will never go hotter than that. This is ideal if you don’t want to be scalded or worry that someone using the shower may not be as sensitive to temperatures. Digital showers can be turned on and off remotely- either by a switch located on a more convenient place or height or even via remote control. An LED light display will tell you when you shower has reached your chosen temperature so no more jumping in to a shower which hasn’t yet warmed up.
Water saving technology
Becoming more environmentally friendly has never been higher on the agenda and anything that can cut your water use as well as save you money is a must for your bathroom. Shower heads fitted with water saving technology can reduce the amount of water you use every time you shower. There are different shower heads which do this in different ways but with all of them, you will still get the shower pressure you are used to. Save money on your water bill and save the planet at the same time; perfect.
Add a touch of fun
LED lights can be added to your walk-in shower, either in the floor or wall tiles, to make the area lighter. This will create a modern, stylish look but also make the area safer for those who struggle with their sight. However, if you fancy adding a touch of fun to your walk in shower, invest in coloured LED lights which can be digitally set to change colour while you shower. Set the mood or add some disco lights while you sing along in the shower to your favourite songs.
With all this tech on offer for walk-in showers, isn’t it time you thought about upgrading yours?
