The Chromotherapy Bath

This one’s otherwise known as colour therapy, where lights or colours are used in tubs or showers to promote relaxation. Some call this purely marketing but science backs up this “magical” bathroom technology with the fact that colours indeed have psychological effects that soothe the mind and body! For example, violet colour relaxes muscles and calms the mind. Blue calms the nerves. Green for resting the eyes and softening the mood.

This is a rising trend in New Zealand as more and more Kiwis start to embrace its concept. There are showers available today fitted with chromotherapy and hydrotherapy baths that incorporate coloured underwater lights adjustable to suit any of your mood colour choice.

Vanity Mirror TV

There are lots of options today for having TVs in your bathroom. But this latest display technology from Samsung lets you view traffic delays or catch up with the morning news whilst you’re busy fixing your tie or getting your makeup done - in front of the mirror!

This technology is a mirror that doubles as an OLED display solution. It can display weather news, get you some traffic update and even lets you browse the internet without falling behind your daily prep!

Towel Warming Drawer

This high-tech drawer keeps your towels toasty just when you need it! So instead of the traditional way of hanging your towel on a rack, you can now get an evenly heated towel simply by folding it and storing it into this futuristic cabinet!

Shower Out Loud

Showers are now becoming more sophisticated than ever! Did you know there are now showers available that can blast your favorite music straight through the showerhead? Yep - it’s real and it’s here! Kohler’s Moxie Showerhead is the best example for this as it lets you play music and podcasts through wireless speakers installed on the showerhead! So now you can take your shower stage performance on a higher level!

Self-Cleaning Toilets

This is history for germaphobes! Days of scrubbing the toilet bowl may come to a close as self-cleaning toilets and antimicrobial seats are now entering the market! Technologies like SpinX, the toilet-cleaning robot, free people from the often unwanted task of toilet cleaning.

The SpinX toilet self-sanitizes both the toilet bowl and seat in just 90 seconds.

Kohler’s intelligent toilet seats also feature high-tech functionalities like having a heated seat adjusted according to optimal comfort  plus a built-in light sensor that automatically turns the nightlight on without disturbing your nighttime vision! Another amazing feature? It has a self-deodorizing seat!
