Hyderabad: Home is where the heart is and the pandemic has made our homes the most essential place for both our personal and professional life. All this has led to an increased interest in how aesthetically beautiful our place of stay is and also how sustainable it is. Bathrooms – which for many years were shoved to the corner – are now turning into a style statement for most of us.
From beautiful-looking designs for the sinks to colourful toilet seats and even different kinds of sinks, homebuyers are on the lookout for the next best thing. And technology is definitely helping these buyers get sustainable, beautiful, and ease-of-use bathroom fittings. From low-flow showers to water-saving faucets to Bluetooth/app-enabled taps to antimicrobial seats and covers, bathroom fittings are seeing a 360-degree shift in design and usage.
Not just for the tech crazy, bathroom fittings are also being made keeping in mind the needs of senior citizens. For example, Roca Bathroom Products offers slip-free handles in the shower area so as to provide ease of bathing and it also provides pedestals for your toilets. Other companies are offering interactive mirrors wherein one can catch up with the news while brushing, a mood shower with a recliner to have a relaxed bathing experience, and anti-microbial seats and covers to provide a sanitised experience.
“In the post-Covid world, touch-free bathroom fittings are becoming the need of the hour with automatic flush and app-enabled sanitary ware and sensor taps, the homebuyers are always looking out for something new and exciting. While these do fulfil the idea of having an aesthetically rich bathroom, most of the products also help in reducing water wastage and make your bathroom more sustainable,” says KE Ranganathan, MD, Roca Bathroom Products.
The company through its different brands is offering tech-enabled bathroom fittings in most of the price ranges. A shower that has a Bluetooth speaker attached – so that you don’t miss out on your favourite songs while bathing — to IoT-based bathroom fittings which get integrated with an app so that you can control the flow and wastage of water from your mobile is also being offered by the company.
Roca recently announced the opening of its experience centre in Hyderabad wherein one can get a touch-and-feel of their products.
