7 Innovative Tech Gadgets That Will Transform Your Bathroom

Our bathroom is an important place we spend a significant amount of time in at home: some estimate a cumulative time of over 2 years of our entire lives in that one room!

It’s almost a sacred place if you think about it. It’s where we ready ourselves for the world and the day ahead of us, make sure we look just right, and the bathroom even serves as a place of respite where we can escape from the world (or others in the house) for a few moments, whether just on the toilet, or having a relaxing bath or shower.

So, it only makes sense to do what we can to make our time there more enjoyable. And with how technology has worked its way into all aspects of our lives, it’s no surprise there are now a wide range of innovative bathroom gadgets intended for the bathroom that can do just that.

Let’s take a look at some new tech that can enhance our daily bathroom time. From fancy scales to luxury shower controls, these gadgets will have you looking forward to your next bathroom escape!

1. Bathroom Speakers

Music in the bathroom can be peaceful and help you relax in the bath or shower after a long, stressful day. It can be upbeat and help you get awake and motivated while you’re getting ready in the morning. Or it could even be a time you get to be alone to listen to , talk radio, podcasts, or audiobooks if that’s your thing.

While you could try to listen to it from your phone’s speaker or with some earbuds, imagine how much more enjoyable and satisfying it would be to have your favorite music filling the entire bathroom, even in the shower, from high-quality speakers.

2. Fancy Toilets

Let’s talk about the potty…you may think, “What could really be done to enhance one’s time on toilet?!”

…Surprisingly, quite a lot!

From night lights to bluetooth speakers, from heated seats to remote controls, or bidets to automated flushing, the modern toilet can have quite a number of features that make it stand apart from the traditional porcelain throne.

Bidets & Super Toilets

At the time of writing this, with the coronavirus pandemic sweeping across the world, Americans have strangely found store shelves empty where the toilet paper normally should be. In a case like this, it makes the idea of a bidet a lot more enticing. What has mostly been a European and Asian “thing”, is now finally catching momentum and acceptance in the USA, mostly thanks to this deadly virus and the “Great TP Shortage of 2020.”

But we needn’t a catastrophe like that to make us want to use a toilet with a built-in personal hygiene tool of water jets and air drying. Many long-time bidet users claim each use leaves them feeling cleaner and happier than when they used old-fashioned TP.

Searching for bidets, you’ll find an entire spectrum of options, depending on your budget, from bidet seats that attach to your existing toilet…

Brondell S1000-EW Swash 1000 Advanced Bidet Elongated Toilet Seat, White

…to standard bidet porcelain fixtures…

Ove Decors Tuva Tankless Eco Smart Toilet

…all the way up to “super toilets” that have built-in bidet function along with a whole list of other bells & whistles. This model from Woodbridge boasts features like remote control, heated seat, bidet washing hygiene with multiple wash & pressure choices, heated water, automatic deodorizer, automatic flushing, and automated seat opening & closing…
