The demand for more comfort, space and technology is on the rise in bathrooms. Manufacturers are listening and responding with savvy, must-have features. We’ve composed a list of the most popular amenities on the market.
Electric Radiant Floor Heating
Placing your feet on a toasty warm floor on a cold morning — what a great way to start your day! We can install this floor heating system under most any flooring, but recommend engineered hardwoods as they are more dimensionally stable (less movement) and better able to withstand moisture and temperature variations than solid woods. Porcelain, stone and ceramic tiles are also perfect flooring choices as they do not expand and contract with heat, and are resistant to warping or cracking. Heat emitting throughout your floor’s surface improves the warmth throughout the entire room, boosting energy efficiency. This can bring significant savings on your monthly electric bill.
Electric Towel Warmers
Staying with the toasty theme, this feature will not only keep you warm after a nice hot bath or shower, it will also dry your damp towels and keep your surroundings clean and mildew free. Rails come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and are practical, as well as stylish. Get creative with your new rails and dry delicate garments, lingerie and bathing suits. Why not even warm your mittens, gloves, earmuffs, scarves and winter coats before heading out the door? The possibilities are endless!
There are multiple perks in having us install a steam shower. The moist heat reduces your blood pressure by widening your blood vessels, and improves your overall circulation. Relief can also be found by the steam opening up your sinus passages. It also relaxes your muscles while ridding your body of toxins and metabolic waste. Twenty minutes of steam per week can help improve your skin’s tone and clarity. Last but not least, endorphins are released in your brain during a steam shower experience to help you relax mentally and emotionally.
Handheld Shower Heads
Who enjoys cleaning their shower? Not anyone I know. With this feature it makes the task much easier. Bathing small kids or your pets can become a breeze, as well. With the option of multiple settings and detaching the shower head from the wall, you gain mobility of the water and can adjust the pressure to clean even the lowest of spots on the floor. If there are any physical limitations or limited mobility, these shower heads are absolutely essential in making showering effortless. These gadgets also conserve water and energy!
These fans have a built-in sensor that activate them when the humidity rises in the bathroom. It then automatically turns them off after a programmed period of time. This is a tremendous aid in removing excess moisture from the air, helping prevent damage to walls and ceilings. Even if flipping the switch before entering the shower slips your mind, your fan will turn on. This will reduce the chance of mold and mildew growth, as well. And who doesn’t like it when life is made just a bit easier?
Adding shower lighting can help prevent slips and falls by increasing visibility. This feature also helps improve your overall health and well-being. Many brands offer lighting to generate balance, wellness and energy. LED shower heads are available that change colors depending on the temperature of the water, promoting safety and entertainment for children and adults alike.
Since these toilets are smaller than two-piece toilets, installing them in smaller bathrooms helps conserve space. The feature that most consumers are grateful for is the connected tank. Fewer nooks and crevasses makes cleaning this toilet a cinch! Young children and those with limited mobility appreciate that the handles and height are lowered. Plus, being made of one stable piece of ceramic increases the durability for years to come.
Smart Toilet Seats with Integrated Bidet Features
These smart toilets do everything you can think of except talk! Hands-free flushing, an automated lid that opens and closes, a seat warmer, adjustable two-nozzle water spray system and an integrated air dryer. There is even a night light and a massage feature, just in case you were wondering! Luxury is a bit pricey, but this doesn’t seem to be keeping consumers at bay.
Having us up the ante on some or all of your bathroom features will create a daily spa experience for you, and leave your guests singing your bathroom praises!
