Technology Trends: Digital Showering, Wireless Charging Surfaces & More

Posted on: October 15, 2015

If a home is an expression of lifestyle, it’s no small wonder that technology is becoming an increasingly important consideration when making renovation choices. Nearly all of us rely on our electronic gadgets for work, play or both, and better technology is fast finding its way into the most mundane parts of the home. Here’s what our clients are seeking today.

shower with DTV controlsA digital showering experience. Bathrooms are no longer a strictly functional space; homeowners who remodel their bathroom want a luxurious and relaxing retreat. Almost all of the new showers built by Hatfield Design and Remodelers feature Kohler DTV® Digital Prompt Shower controls. A simple digital interface allows you to create a personalized hydrotherapy experience in the shower by controlling water temperature, spray intensity and more, with presets to create and save your preferences. Upgrade the digital platform to DTV II to add rejuvenating steam, music from your own playlist, and lights that move and change colors during your shower.

wireless charging surfaceWireless charging surfaces. Wireless charging surfaces are a smart and convenient solution to keep devices powered up – minus the ugly tangle of cords and chargers. This technology allows for the wireless charging of cell phones, tablets and other smart devices simply by placing the device onto a charging surface built into a kitchen countertop or another surface in the home. According to Mike Hetherman, president and CEO of building materials manufacturer Willis, these surfaces are a timeless addition that “would stand the test of time and prove to add function to our homes.”

mirror tvVanishing mirror TVs. Add sophistication to your bathroom or bedroom with an ultra-thin waterproof LCD TV that displays a crisp image when turned on, and becomes a mirror when off. The mirror TV can be framed to coordinate with your room’s décor or used without a frame, and the waterproof remote can be used from the tub or shower. Mirror TVs can be manufactured in nearly any size and include built-in speakers so there is no need to string cables through walls or cut holes in the ceiling.
