When it comes to adding smart technologies or technology in general, your bathroom may not be your first pink. But it is jarring that is not the case. Homeowners overlook bathrooms as a place for smart devices despite being one of the important rooms in the house. Try and remember when was the last time you didn’t wish to hear music when you were showering or for your bathroom to encapsulate the warmth of onsen (Japanese hot spring bathhouses). These wishes can be a reality through smart devices. Likewise, there are so many areas where you can add smart home devices in your bathroom to heighten your experience in a bathroom.
With these expectations in mind, smart home manufacturers have hit the market with smart devices that cater to multiple bathroom areas. The CES 2022 has provided a glimpse of what the future holds for bathroom technology in smart homes with the unveiling of smart bathroom gadgets like Kohler PerfectFill. The smart devices in the market right now offer sustainability like reducing wastage and improving health along with their convenience feature.

However, keep in mind that the following list is in no particular order.
