Who remembers when touch-free faucets were introduced? By now they’re so widespread that it’s more surprising to visit a public bathroom without one than with one. And practically everything else in the bathroom has followed suit: hand dryers, paper towel dispensers, toilets (which still need to be perfected… too many people have been flushed on unexpectedly), and even toilet seat covers.
(When are the doors going to follow suit? No more touching germy handles!)
If you love the convenience and sanitary benefits of sensor-activated bathroom fittings, read on. Here’s a list of automatic furnishings for your bathroom:
Automatic faucets are still among the most popular of touchless luxuries and are available in a wide variety of styles.
