People love their gadgets. We try not to be away from them for extended periods. This includes time spent in the bathroom. Admit it, how many of you have spent longer than they should in there because you found yourself checking social media while doing your business?
Well, thanks to modern technology being pushed by a silent demand, we’re now in possession of tech toys that can be used in the bathroom.
So here are some of our favourite shower tech toys. Maybe you’ll find something you’ll like. If they need installation, click here to get the job done.
First, let’s poke around a thing called the chromatherapy shower.
Color therapy is the pseudoscience that forms the backbone of this gadget. It uses LED lights in the tub or shower cycle, moving through different shades. Supposedly, this allows you to achieve a feeling of tranquillity as you clean yourself. Whether not it works, it certainly makes for a unique visual.
How about shower speakers?
Most people have tried to sing in the shower at least once in their lives. Why not have music play while you clean yourself? These babies are water-resistant and have passable sound quality. If you’re an audiophile, you’ll notice some issues. Assuming you hear them over the sound of your shower.
Privacy glass is also a good choice. In particular, it speaks to people who want privacy in the bathroom but also want more light. Standard enclosures might not provide enough, but privacy glass would.
If you’ve got the cash, there’s always a steam shower. Those are a great way to relax.
Take a look at your toilet. There are ways to upgrade it.
The Japanese have toilet tech down to…well, science. They’ve got buttons to control not only the flush, but also a built-in bidet and other water-related functions. There are even models that have a remote control, so you never have to touch the toilet.
Plus, for a more low-tech but practical addition, you can rig it, so there’s a mini-sink on top of the water closet. It automatically activates after a flush, so you can wash your hands without touching anything.
Get a rack or drawer that keeps the towels warm. It’s great for people who find it annoying to step out of a warm shower, and a cold towel touches skin.
Finally, there’s such a thing as a vanity mirror with a built-in TV. Don’t expect a lot of fancy features, like USB ports or Netflix access. It’s a simple TV, and it does its job well enough.
