Design a Smart Bathroom

RSS

While millennials and younger generations don’t make up the biggest percentage of homeowners today, they are one of the largest groups to take on major home remodels, including bathroom renovations. At the same time, those millennials who are looking to purchase houses, are often looking for newer, smarter technologies throughout the home in the ones that they purchase. In other words, a more up to date setting, including in the bathrooms, is more likely to sell amongst millennial home buyers. All of this is driving trends in bathroom designs toward interactive technology and smarter designs meant to enhance the user experience.

Greater Control

One of the attributes of today’s smart bathroom design is greater control over the space. This includes ways that the user can help tweak the way they interact with various items in the bathroom to help personalize their experience. A few ways this can be done include:

  • Using radiant heat flooring or panels in the bathroom that are preprogrammed to warm the room at specific times of the day so you never have to experience chilled tile again.
  • Installing sink faucets with integrated lighting that shows blue for cold water and red for hot so you can tell the temperature at a glance, rather than by touch.
  • Including thermostatic shower valves that allow you to set the exact temperature of the water before you turn it on.
  • Using toilet seats that include heat, an integrated bidet, self-closing lid, and the option to stream MP3s.
  • Investing towel warmers  for toasty warm towels at all hours of the day or night, as well as programmable electric towel warmers so you can have your warmed towel waiting for you at specific times of the day.
  • Installing smart medicine cabinets and mirrors that feature defogging technology, concealed outlets, and cooled compartments for storing medicines that need to be kept refrigerated.

Luxury Design

At the same time that new bathroom owners are wanting to update their space to make it more user friendly, many are also interested in adding a few luxury items to the space as well. Some of the same components that add control also qualify as luxury items. However, if it comes down to choice the following are often seen as the most popular:

  • Radiant heat flooring
  • Towel warmers
  • Glass shower enclosures
  • Body sprays
  • Heated toilet seats

Adding one or more of these items to your bathroom can help you get a bigger return on investment at time of resale and help your home sell faster at the same time.

Create a Smarter Bathroom

As people integrate more technology into their lives, newer appliances and fixtures for every room of the home will begin to reflect this. The bathroom is one area where technology and smart design is beginning to become more prominent as younger homeowners begin to increase in percentage. So consider adding some smart technology to your bathroom to make the most of your space and your investment.

Great Price and Delivery

Only Towel Warmers delivered our Runtal right on time and was easy to use. Highly recommended.

I thought it was dead for good

I was pretty upset when my towel warmer quit working one day, it was 10 years old and I thought I'd need to replace the whole thing, after contacting only towel warmers, they said it was just the heating element. I was able to fix it for only 85 bucks! That made me (and my wife) very happy to have our towel warmer back! Shipping was very fast and best of all FREE! This is a great product and company to deal with.

Great Product and Service

I purchase two of these to put in our Mountain house. Michael was very helpful in promptly answering questions. After a couple weeks, my wife insisted we put these in our main house as well. I decided at the last minute to surprise her and have them installed when she came home from a business trip. Michael helped again by getting my shipment out quickly. Love, love Love, the towel warmers, and would absolutely order from Only Towel Warmers again!

Great experience

Warmer was as pictured. Great ordering and delivery service. Would purchase from them again!

Excellent product and service

I purchased one of these for a bathroom addition, in response to the positive reviews of both product and service on the website. I then decided to purchase a second warmer for an existing bathroom. On both occasions, Michael was very helpful in responding to questions and for the second device , he supplied extr brackets to fit our needs (covering over holes from prior towel bar).
I’m very satisfied with the product and the service provided and would not hesitate to use this firm again.
