The latter category is one that raises eyebrows. Imagine this: It’s the middle of the night and you have to go to the bathroom. As you approach the toilet which is lighted by night light panels music that you preselected begins playing the lid rises a light shines on the floor next to the bowl.
The Numi features a night light a heated seat an integrated bidet with temperature-controlled water an air dryer a deodorizer (a fan pulls air from inside the bowl runs it through a charcoal filter and releases exhaust out the back of the unit) music (Champley has his set to classical) and feet warmers (yes warm air blows from under the toilet bowl onto your feet). And it even washes itself. All this is controlled from a touchpad screen.
For manufacturers of smart toilets the biggest hurdle seems to be getting people to try the product. Not an easy feat. “Think about how most of us grew up” Kohler’s Allis says. “When we are going through our toileting routine we use toilet paper. Smart toilets with bidets are something very different for the vast majority of the U.S. market. Once you use a product like this you don’t want to go back. But how do people get that exposure?”
Other units such as the Toto Washlet shown here which you can add on to almost any standard toilet come with a remote control so you can adjust the spray angle to hit you just right. You can also adjust the temperature of the water and make the sprayer pulsate and oscillate. “When you get off that seat you’re refreshed” says Bill Strang president of operations and e-commerce at Toto.
The pairing has moved into more contemporary rooms too. Here’s a bathroom that combines some of the previously mentioned vintage touches with more modern ones like a chandelier shade a footless freestanding tub and gray accent paint. This transitional bath bridges traditional and modern with its mix of straight lines and curves marble and wood.
