The technology needed to make self-cleaning sinks and baths that run themselves is now readily available, bringing us much more closer to having the bathrooms of the future than ever before.
Japanese company Toto has been at the forefront of smart bathroom automation for decades. In many countries around the world, it is best known for its Washlet, an electronic shower-lavatory with an automated washing and drying nozzle. Its latest model, the RX, now has a heated seat and sensor-operated lid giving us hands-free comfort when using the loo.
Floyd Case, Toto’s UK projects and branding manager, said: “These features are not niche. Every toilet should have the basic criteria of hygiene, high performance and low noise. However, move up the scale and the technology gets more sophisticated.”
Top-of-the-range loos are also making their way to the market. Many feature a photcatalytic coating: a layer of titanium dioxide that decomposes dirt. “We’ve taken a tiny bit of that technology and put it in the toilet to help kill bacteria,” says Case. This technology greatly reduces the time we spend cleaning the bathroom as well as the amount of chemicals we use in the process.
