touch-activated lavatory faucet
Modern technology is changing your bath experience.
Start with a touch lavatory faucet. A touch faucet is easy to turn on with a wrist or forearm; because hands are free, it cuts down on messes.
Tip: Because it operates on batteries, there's no hardwiring.
A two-in-one showerhead gives three choices: wall shower, hand-held, and combination wall shower and hand-held.
For pure luxury, install in-floor heating
You can put heating pipes under ceramic tile, stone, wood or even carpet.
Install a countdown exhaust fan.
Set the dial for time you want the fan to run; it turns off automatically.
Install motion-activated lighting.
There'll be no more groping for the switch in the dark, no more fingerprints on the wall, no more wasted energy when someone forgets to turn off lights; motion-activated lights turn on when you step into the room and turn off when you leave.
