As technology continues to evolve, home products have followed in stride and toilets have been no exception! Sure, modern toilet models boast plenty of functional benefits like sleek space-saving designs and clean-looking in-wall plumbing, but the most luxurious features that you’ll find today are decidedly more fun! These are the best features of the year’s most sophisticated toilets:
- Automatic Flushing
- Heated Seats
- Motion Activated Lids
- Soothing Nightlight
- Washing and Drying
- Music Compatibility
- Stylish Bowls and Tanks
- Remote-Controlled Functionality
- Health Diagnosis
You’ll never forget to flush the toilet again with a self-slushing toilet. This technology has been readily available in public restrooms for some time, but now it’s making its way into home bathrooms as well. Thankfully, master bathroom toilets generally have a more finely tuned flushing mechanism, so you’re less likely to get flushed on while still doing your business.
On those cold winter mornings, there’s nothing better than a warm cozy toilet to sit on with the paper (or your smart phone). Some toilet models also feature a warm air jet that heats up the floor in front of the toilet, to leave your feet as warm as your hind parts.
Just like the toilets that flush themselves, some models now open and close their own lids when they sense motion. (Now, if someone could invent a toilet that sensed when the toilet seat needed to be put up and down based on who walked in front of it, women everywhere would be thrilled!)
Toilet mood lighting? Check! Toilets that have low ambient lighting for easy use in the middle of the night are the new fad. These are great for adults who don’t want to wake a sleeping partner as well as kids who need a little help getting to and from the bathroom safely after dark. Self-contained lighting is gaining popularity worldwide and it’s easy to see why. In fact, this may be our favorite feature!
Built-in bidets are not new to the toilet scene, but adding a drying feature is the newest luxurious feature for regions where bidets are widely used. This addition leaves you clean, dry, and ready to take on anything.
Music-enabled home devices are more popular than ever before. Devices from TVs to thermostats are now boasting streaming music and USB drive capabilities, so why should your toilet be any different? The ability to stream music from your smart device to your toilet is a surprising feature that wows users and adds a fun flair to the bathroom.
Toilets in bright colors, with swanky embellishments, and even gold-plating are making a real rise in the world’s most posh bathrooms. A stylish toilet can be the statement piece of your bathroom and even be customized to match the existing décor in your bathroom.
Is there anything better than a self-cleaning toilet?! Welcome to the future! Some toilets these days come with a deodorizing feature and sanitizing spray in the toilet bowl to clean with every flush. Think of this as the more upscale (and less hands-on) version of those bowl cleaning tabs that adhere inside the bowl.
For toilets that also have a bidet feature, some also come equipped with a remote control to regulate sprayer jets. These provide a completely customized bathroom experience for each member of your household. Being king of the remote while doing your business? Priceless!
Believe it or not, there are actually toilets that will analyze your waste and send a health report to your smartphone with helpful insights. They can report on your hydration level and overall nutrition. In fact, we’ve even heard a rumor that there’s a toilet out there that can tell you if you’re pregnant. Now that’s pretty unbelievable!
Of course, today’s most luxurious features are tomorrow’s old news. So, what’s next? Our bet is scented toilets! (Hear us out on this one…) Say goodbye to lighting candles, spraying air fresheners, or using scented oils in the bathroom. We think that the next version of high-tech toilets will feature scented water in the bowl or a nose pleasing auto-spritz technology with every toilet flush.
