Three ris­ing shower trends

Living Etc - - DESIGN / PROJECT -

Jane Gilchri­est, di­rec­tor of Al­ter­na­tive Bathrooms, re­veals what’s next in store * Go­ing hor­i­zon­tal: show­er­ing has evolved into a com­plete spa well­ness ex­pe­ri­ence in­cor­po­rat­ing vari­able pro­gram­mable body jets. One bub­bling trend is the hor­i­zon­tal ex­pe­ri­ence, as fea­tured by Dorn­bracht, which al­lows you to get clean while re­clin­ing. There is noth­ing worse than hav­ing a body jet that just trick­les out, so be sure that there is suf­fi­cient water flow (and drainage) for de­cent shower pres­sure. * Dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy: cus­tomise your show­er­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with clever gad­getry that al­lows each fam­ily mem­ber to ex­actly con­trol the func­tions and set the tem­per­a­ture to their pref­er­ences. An app also al­lows your smart­phone or tablet to op­er­ate the shower re­motely so it is per­fect the se­cond you step in.

* Air boost: water ef­fi­ciency is on the minds of shower man­u­fac­tur­ers and many are now de­vel­op­ing prod­ucts to ad­here to new reg­u­la­tory re­quire­ments with­out com­pris­ing a lux­ury wash. The ad­di­tion of air in the Hans­grohe shower heads means an am­ple amount of air is sucked in and in­fil­trates the water so the

stream re­mains pow­er­ful but lighter, us­ing less water.
