How to Convert Your Bathroom into a Wellness Center

Health and wellbeing are top of everyone’s mind in Denver Colorado. The global pandemic has cast a bright spotlight on the importance of cleanliness, disinfecting and staying healthy. We can help you create a healthier home for your family by converting your bathroom into a wellness center.

Bathroom Wellness Center

A bathroom serves functional purposes for grooming and hygiene, and those activities are improved with the proper lighting, ventilation and with anti-bacterial materials and fixtures. Today’s manufacturers are harnessing the ability of water, light, color, sound, music, smell and technology to provide therapies that promote health and wellness and a more enjoyable lifestyle.

Technologically sophisticated glazes on toilets and sinks can fight bacteria. There is anti-microbial door and cabinet hardware, and within a few weeks, we expect a new line of cabinet hardware that kills germs on contact.

Smart Mirrors for Wellness

There are smart mirrors with 3D scanners, multispectral cameras and gas sensors to assess the health of the person looking into them. These mirrors examine a person’s face, look at fatty tissue, facial expressions and how flushed or pale a person’s skin is. Facial recognition software in vanity mirrors can identify signs of stress or anxiety. Gas sensors serve as breathalizers providing data on how much someone may drink or smoke. Mirror scanners that analyze face shapes can identify weight gain or loss, and multispectral cameras in smart mirrors read heart rates or hemoglobin levels. The sensors in smart mirrors can tell homeowners how healthy they are and offer guidance to improve health.

Smart Bidet Toilets

Technologically sophisticated toilets feature massage and washlet systems that eliminate the need for toilet paper. Integrated exhaust systems remove odors and bacteria. Some toilets have self-rising and closing seats, automatic flushing and self-cleaning capabilities, which allow them to be used and operated hands-free. Hands-free and touch- and voice-activated faucets also contribute to a healthier bath or kitchen.

Technology in the Master Bathroom

The evolution of the bath allows for creative solutions that constantly surprise and delight. Today’s bath design combines modern and organic shapes that emulate the fluidity of water and use different materials, colors and fixture placement to establish feelings of calm and relaxation. Technological advancements, everything from smartphone applications to run steam showers to heated floors and countertops to touch faucets that are not only cool but also are more environmentally efficient, have enhanced functionality to deliver more enjoyable experiences in the home. There’s even an electronic shut off that sends a message to a smartphone if any fixture in your home is leaking.

The self-cleaning bathroom is not too far away. From rimless water closets and easily removable toilet seats to antibacterial coatings and electrolytic water treatment, manufacturers are placing major emphasis on eliminating bacteria easily to make it easier on the user and less stressful.

Steam systems offer therapeutic benefits to reduce stress, eliminate toxins and improve immune systems, respiration and skin tone. Steam also improves sleep, makes it easier to relax and soothes tired muscles.

Shower and bath systems can include hydrotherapy capabilities that relax tired muscles and reduce stress while enhancing circulation.

These are a partial list of the products and capabilities that homeowners in Denver can use to make their homes healthier and more enjoyable.
