Technology Improvements are Luxurious
Home improvement, renovation and remodeling can all be fairly expensive and time consuming projects. There are many ways, some more notable than others, in which we can develop our home that will improve our lifestyle and home value.
In the past, the bathroom was a small, bog-like standard room, excuse the pun. It was renowned for being one of the last places homeowners would renovate, but that is no longer the case. The bathroom is becoming a highly valued part of the home. Because of this, more homeowners are making improvements to their bathroom décor, accessories and appliances.
Nowadays, many improve or renovate their bathrooms for relaxation and hygiene purposes. We can do this in several ways, but today I wish to discuss a few appliances in the modern era that I love and some gorgeous accessories too.
High-tech bathroom appliances
The bathroom was once a place with a simple function: to aid our physical needs and our personal hygiene. The changes are massive in the modern era! Baths have changed from a necessity to a luxury with master baths having spa-like feels to them. Our demand for relaxation and entertainment has been increased too. Today, it’s not unusual to find a TV mounted in a bathroom. If you’re looking to amp up the luxury, considering adding customized technology to your bathroom such as televisions and high-tech showers.
High-tech customized showers
Technology in the home is something that is being developed all the time, especially for the bathroom. One of the main appliances that has experienced remarkable upgrades has got to be the shower. Gone are the days when we have to struggle to find the right temperature. Now high-tech showers are being introduced into the industry that not only allow us to digitally control our temperature gauge but to also adjust the water volume and massage settings within the shower.
The American company, Kohler, was one of the first to bring out a ‘DTV Custom Showering Experience’. The concept was created to “wrap water, sound, light and steam together in a seamless and totally customized style”.
Incorporating a television into your bathroom
Televisions can be placed almost anywhere nowadays and that includes in the bathroom. Can you think of anything more relaxing than turning down the lights, lighting a few candles and relaxing in a warm bubbly bath while watching your favourite TV shows?
There are a few different ways in which you can incorporate a TV into your bathroom:
- Buying a stand alone TV which can be mounted onto a wall at the perfect eye line for your relaxation.
- Adding a television to your medicine cabinet. This option adds more storage space while supplying you a clever place for your TV.
- Television mirrors, add you TV into your vanity mirror… It’s a design lover’s haven.
Design company, Seura, have created a product which enhances lamination to create a television and mirror. Simply mind blowing!

Accessories are a much more affordable way to renovate your bathroom or, for that matter, any room in your home. I see so many homes with bathrooms that look outdated because of the small things, such as towels, bath mats and hardware.
Buying some new, bold or colorful towels is a perfect way to refresh the look of your bathroom. You can change the style of your room through more of these cost effective changes such as:
- Replacing an old bathroom mat
- Adding a fresh flowers with a contemporary vase
- Re-grouting your bathroom tiles
- Repainting or refinishing bathroom cabinets
- Replacing cabinet hardware and doors with new hinges and dampers
All of the above changes to accessories in your bathroom will have a simple, yet positive effect. Not only will you notice a difference, but so will family members and any guests you may have in your home.
