If you are planning to remodel your bathroom, the toilet may not be first and foremost in your thoughts. However, modern innovations in toilets can take your bathroom to new heights in comfort and design. From heated seats to automatic sensors, new toilets can be the star of your bathroom remodeling project.
Heated toilet seats
Nobody enjoys sitting down on a cold toilet seat in the middle of the night. One of the most popular innovations in toilet design is heated toilet seats. These seats keep your toilet seat at just the right temperature to make sitting more comfortable any season of the year.
No-touch toilets may help lessen the spread of germs in busy households. Whether you purchase a toilet with a sensor that automatically activates the flush mechanism when you move away from the toilet or one that raises and lowers the lid automatically, you can rest assured you are doing the best to keep your family protected from germs.
Toilets that sit higher than the old standard toilets are an easy and less expensive upgrade that is worth it. Lower seat toilets can make sitting and rising from the commode difficult for those who may have back injuries or other health conditions. Higher toilets are also good for elderly people.
Toilets combined with bidets are growing in popularity in modern bathroom design and for good reason. Many come equipped with two self-cleaning nozzles and a drying unit and can save you money on toilet tissues and wipes. The soothing aerated spray is the ultimate in personal cleanliness and the water is heated to make personal hygiene comfortable.
Built-in night lights
Toilets equipped with night light features means no more stumbling around in the dark during nighttime trips to the bathroom. Night lights are great for homes with small children, as well as elderly family members who may be more prone to falling in the dark.
Toilets with Bluetooth speaker functions contain a receiver that reads the Bluetooth signal from your phone or tablet. Some come equipped with an SD card slot that allows you to get creative and make your own bathroom playlist. You can also create a greeting message for bathroom visitors.
Since the bathroom is always going to be one of the most used rooms in your home, why not give it the attention it deserves? Upgrading to one of the newer toilets is a wise choice that will make your bathroom stand out from the rest.
