Back Lit Heated Mirror
Changing your bathroom mirror is probably the easiest way to start building a smart bathroom.
It can be harder to apply pristine makeup by relying on lights that shine down on you from overhead. However, the Back Lit Heated Mirror from Phoenix Whirlpools solves that problem. Lights line the sides of the mirror offering you better and more accurate lighting.
Do you like to get ready directly after taking a nice, hot shower? You might have had trouble doing this in the past with a steamy mirror. However, this high tech mirror is actually heated. All you have to do is turn the heating function on and enjoy a nice mist-free mirror right away.
To avoid fingerprints and smudging, both the lighting and heating elements are motion activated.
If you want to take your high tech mirror to the next level, the Hudson Reed Corona Bluetooth Enabled Bathroom Mirror is for you.
Similar to the Phoenix Whirlpools Back Lit Heated Mirror, this smart mirror has a motion activated heater that can prevent your mirror from going foggy. It also has motion-activated lights built right in that dot the entire perimeter of the mirror.
But the features don't stop there. To take it to the next level, Hudson Reed added a Bluetooth audio function. Just choose the song you want to listen to on your phone. Concealed speakers in the mirror will start playing it to help get you energized in the morning.
Have you ever wanted to enjoy a nice hot soak in your bathtub but had to keep switching the hot water on to prevent a cold bath? Not only does this waste water, but it also doesn't effectively reheat the entire bath.
Upgrading to a heated bathtub can solve these problems in your new high tech bathroom. With a built-in thermostat and heaters, you can keep your bath at the perfect temperature.
But you don't have to stop there. The newest bathroom technology has developed jacuzzi-like bathtubs complete with relaxing jets!
Mood lighting and music are also some of the available features to help you get a spa-like bath at home.
Do you like to enjoy a nice soak, but find yourself getting bored after a while? If so, then a waterproof TV might be the perfect bathroom technology to add.
But waterproof TVs don't only have to benefit you when it's time for a relaxing soak. If you have kids that hate bath time, a widescreen waterproof TV can be the perfect way to keep them distracted, happy, and clean.
Infinity Effect Mirror
If you also want your bathroom to look like it's from the future, then this is the product for you.
The Hudson Reed Lucio Infinity Effect Mirror has blue LED lights surrounding the perimeter of the mirror. They fade back and disappear into infinity, giving this high tech mirror a futuristic look while still being functional. It also has an IPX4 splash rating, making it safe to be around water.
This mirror can make a stunning visual centrepiece for any high tech bathroom.
Phone Capable Shower Control
When you have a busy life or are wrangling kids in the morning, high tech bathroom gadgets can help your day go smoother.
Imagine that you just woke up and turned the shower on to heat up. Then, you walked into the kitchen to start some coffee and was greeted with a giant mess from your independent children trying to pour their own cereal. Well, it looks like your shower may have to wait. Instead, of running upstairs to turn it off, all you have to do is pull out your phone.
With phone capable shower controls, you can turn your shower on and off, as well as control the temperature from your phone. Many smart showers also allow you to use Amazon's Alexa to utilize voice control for a truly hands-free experience.
Of course, the smart controls are available in the shower as well. A control panel can be mounted on the wall so you can control your shower without having to bend over to twist the faucet. This may not seem like a lot, but it can be great if you have a bad back.
There are various smart toilets available that can be installed in your new high tech bathroom.
Do you want an environmentally friendly toilet? Well, they have toilets with a two-button system instead of a one flush handle. The two buttons signify different levels of water usage when you flush the toilet. So, you can select between a small and large flush every time.
There are also toilets with that have motion censored flushes and toilet seat controls. You'll never have to worry about your kids forgetting to flush or your husband accidentally leaving the seat up again!
A good cabinet can be one of the most important parts of any bathroom. You may think that there's no way to upgrade a cabinet to be high tech, but there is!
The Ultra Cryptic Triple Mirror Cabinet comes complete with a built-in shaver socket, so you won't have to deal with pesky and tangled shaver wires again.
If you tend to lose track of time, this smart cabinet has your back. There is a digital clock built right in so you can keep your eye on the time while you get ready.
Of course, the most important part of any bathroom cabinet is the storage space. Don't let all the extra features make you think that this cabinet isn't functional. Three shelves can be accessed by hinged doors for an organized storage area.
