Time for a bathroom redo? Houzz unveils latest tech for toilets, tubs, and showers

How much actual business gets done in bathroom “offices”? That’s a fair question given the percentage (58) of people who use mobile devices in their home bathrooms, says the 2016 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study, as reported on Silicon Beat. High-tech kitchen appliances, such as refrigerators and stoves, are understandable luxuries. Smart home systems connect devices in your home to your car, your wrist, the cloud, and beyond. But why do people want new tech in their bathrooms, and what are they looking for? The top triggering events, in other words, the reasons why people decided to renovate their bathrooms, were “can no longer stand the old bathroom” (46 percent), “wanted to do it all along and finally have the means” (38 percent), and “old bathroom deteriorated/broke down” (29 percent). Eighty-two percent spent between $5,001 and $50,000 on their bathroom renovations, with the largest number, 42 percent, spending from $10,001 to $25,000.
