Are Accessories with Sensors Really Required in a Bathroom?
by Elias Deukmajian | Bathrooms
Bathroom remodeling is an opportunity to make your restroom space a place you can go for privacy, peace, and restful luxury. Bathrooms are one of the rooms in a home where it is important to pay attention to accessories for the aforementioned reasons, but also because they might add value to your home. The most recent advancements in technology combined with attempts to reduce wastefulness have transformed what we all deem as regular bathroom accessories into high-tech, luxurious options for corporate building bathrooms as well as home bathrooms.
Bathroom accessories or appliances with sensors are the wave of the future for many reasons. If you’re considering remodeling your bathroom or making a few upgrades, you might be wondering if installing new accessories for your bathroom space is worth it. In this article we’ll talk more about the benefits of accessories with sensors, the potential drawbacks, and some of the most common options available when it comes to high-tech bathroom accessory options.
What Are the Benefits of Using Sensors in Bathroom Accessories?
There are several benefits of utilizing bathroom accessories that have sensors in them. The use of sensors can be found in many different bathroom appliances, giving consumers plenty of options. One of the biggest perks of these accessories is that it provides higher functionality for your bathroom. Have you ever used the soap dispenser and gotten soap all over the sink, both making a mess and wasting soap? Or used too many paper towels to dry your hands, leaving you with a huge wad of excess? Beyond just the benefit of higher functionality, these accessories allow for a more reserved use of resources such as water, soap, and paper. Furthermore, bathrooms are one of the most germ-ridden areas of a home or business; therefore, the use of high-tech accessories can make the likelihood of germ transfer far less.
What Are the Drawbacks?
There are always two sides of the coin—while high-tech bathroom appliances offer many benefits to public and private restrooms, they can be ill-functioning sometimes, causing you to have to repair or replace them occasionally. Also, so many of us are accustomed to normal bathroom appliances that it can be a frustrating transition. If you’re not used to conserving water, soap, or paper towels, it might be a big change for you. The good news is making the switch can save you money and resources right away—and of course, you’ll get used to the difference.
Common Accessories with Sensors
High-tech bathroom accessories come in a variety of options and functions, and they’re all beneficial in one way or another. You don’t have to re-vamp your entire bathroom, but maybe start with one sensor-using upgrade at a time to see how you like them. Here are a few of the most common accessories with sensors that you might consider installing in your private home bathroom or your public, business restroom:
You may not imagine that soap puts such a huge dent in your wallet that you need to cut back on it, but in the long run, soap dispensers with sensors can be highly functional in keeping bathrooms cleaner and more efficient.
Touchless Sink Faucets
Anything in your home or business that uses water is safe to re-evaluate as needing to be upgraded with high-tech capabilities. Touchless sinks only allot a certain amount of water to be dispersed with each “wash,” cutting back on wasteful water use.
Paper Towel Dispensers
Automatic paper towel dispensers release only a small amount of paper towel at a time, keeping trash from accumulating in the bathroom, keeping paper towels from running out quicker, and keeping landfills cleaner.
Hand-free toilets have been around for a while, mostly seen in public restrooms. They automatically flush when the user stands up, and they are usually low-flow toilets, which significantly reduce water waste.
