Floatation is not just an outdoor thing anymore. Many homeowners are installing flotation devices in their bathroom. There has been an increase in sales of flotation tubs across the country which offers the user a weightless experience. To add more relaxation benefits, the tub also uses massaging jets. A lot of people would love to add this device to their bathroom to relax as it deprives the user of any type of sensory from the outside.
Voice control and activation have been in the market for years. However, it’s seen to make an impact in the bathroom and the kitchen, especially with appliances and fixtures. One of the popular trends in the tech is in mirrors. Though it can’t tell who’s the fairest, mirror technology allows you to know about the traffic and weather outside. Voice-activated appliances and fixture, such as showers, doesn’t only provide convenience but it also aids the elderly.
Smart is In

Gunmetal is one of the long-standing trends in both kitchen and bathroom hardware.
