Technology is making our lives and homes smarter by the day, and there’s no reason why your bathroom shouldn’t reap the benefits. Check out these five accessories and gadgets for a modern bathroom that will add a splash of convenience, comfort and contemporary charm to your everyday bath and beauty rituals. And share with us in the comments below any new gadgets or cool accessories that are must-haves in your own bathroom at home.
- Waterproof shower radio/speaker. With Bluetooth® technology built into most of our modern electronics, it’s become easier and easier to listen to our fave tunes — safely! — while in the bathroom. Wireless, waterproof radios and speakers are great space-savers, and you can stick them directly in the shower and instantly tune in without worry.
- Fogless shower mirror. While not exactly cutting-edge technology, the fogless mirror is just plain smart for any bathroom. And if your bathroom sink doesn’t have a lot of room for your accessories while you shave or do facials, you might find it better to do it in the shower, since you probably already have your shaving cream, razors and supplies at hand in there. Plus, there’s less cleanup afterward since you’re shaving in the shower and not getting a mess all over your already-tight sink space. Many of these mirrors use suction cups so you can stick them anywhere in the bathroom that’s convenient, and they may feature LED lights for even better visibility.
- Multifunction showerhead. Showerheads have come a long way from the days when the most advanced functions were multiple water streams. Today you can get showerheads featuring built-in antimicrobial protection, wireless speakers, or even highly advanced water-saving technology. With today’s new showerheads, your showers can be more eco-friendly while also being more tapped into your technology.
- Bluetooth smart scale. Hook up your smartphone and other Bluetooth-enabled devices with these smart scales, add an app, and you can track progress on your fitness and health goals between the devices.
- Spa sound machine. Transform your shower, bath and beauty regimen into a pure spa experience. These compact, tabletop sound machines offer a variety of spa sounds like nature sounds or soothing music. Find a safe space like a shelf or countertop in the bathroom to securely house one of these, and let the soothing spa sounds whisk you away.
