What do you think bathrooms of the future will have in them? For a while now we’ve battled over technology versus wellbeing in the bathroom. I can find no mention of this bathroom touch screen, heralded as the future back in 2006, but I know bathroom touch screen functionalities exist.
I think I am more interested in how technology can make bathrooms of the future more relaxing, healthy and easy to use, rather than in adding in more distractions.
Touch screen mirrors
Think of The Matrix. You can watch television, check your email, take a selfie and send it, all from your bathroom mirror. I know I would never get out of the house in the morning! And what if you pressed the wrong button? Shudder.
This one I love, these already exist in the homes of a few early adopters, but could become the norm. Showering will be about smell, senses and colour, a kind of theatrical experience, where the water temperature, lights, sounds and even aromatherapy take you to the end of the rainbow as you shower, or to a rainforest as it wakes in the morning.
Sounds utterly blissful, just not sure I fancy being under a cold mountain waterfall before I’ve had my cup of tea in the morning!
After a slightly uncomfortable clean at the dentists last week I am really focussed on keeping mine as shiny as can be. Nano-b make revolutionary toothbrushes using nano technology and won a Best Health Breakthrough Award at the 2015 Beauty Awards.
Made with gold/silver and bamboo charcoal – all products with antibacterial properties, they work harder to keep your mouth free of bacteria. The long-interdental ultra-slim bristles clean deeper between the teeth and gum. Having had a try myself, I love that they are really effective at brushing but soft, so your gums and teeth aren’t damaged. They look absolutely stunning too.
The antibacterial properties of gold and silver have been known for thousands of years. Today, silver continues to be used extensively in medical tools and appliances because of its antimicrobial nature. Bamboo charcoal particles also have whitening properties.
My dentist explained to me that gold always worked well as a metal in crowns because people aren’t allergic to it, that he had also heard that bamboo charcoal can inhibit bacteria too, which makes great sense for something that goes in your mouth. He stressed it was important not to over brush teeth too and wear away enamel, and that lots of people, especially those with sensitive gums, need a softer brush.
The bathrooms of the future, will have new lines that’s for sure, and whether designers look to space, travel, science or nature for inspiration, you can be sure they will be sleek. I love the unusual curved line of Mary Mei, a vanity unit by Tikamoon at Wayfair.co.uk.
