Are you planning to improve the plumbing of your home? If so, you are on the right page. Here, you will find out the five different trends in plumbing that will not only increase the value of your home, but will also make your living standards better.

  1. Hands-free Faucets. Touchless or hands-free faucets is one of the latest trends in home improvement right now. They are not only found in public facilities, but are not available at residential homes and bathrooms. This new trend is very good for people that are concerned with bacterial contamination in public bathrooms and even at home. With touchless faucets, you don’t have to manually turn it on or off. Water will automatically run when your fingers or hands come in close proximity of the faucet. This is one benefit of advance technology that everyone should be enjoying, not just in public places, but also at home.
  1. Frameless Wet Rooms and Showers. More and more people are becoming more minimalistic as years go by and this has given rise to the use of frameless showers and wet rooms. Frameless showers and wet rooms are chic to look at, especially the former with the designer floor-to-ceiling minimalist glass design. It is virtually without any framing, accents, or hardware. On the other hand, wet rooms are a level higher to frameless showers. Wet rooms do not have shower walls. It is a designated space in the bathroom delineated by architectural steps, tiered drainage, and minimalistic tiling effects.
  1. Dual Flush Toilet. Dual flush toilets, as the name suggests, has two flush settings. One setting lets you flush the toilet with a large volume of water, while the other setting allows you to flush the toilet in a lesser volume of water. Having the second option is good as it allows and encourages water conservation. This technology has been around for a while, that it is only now that is becoming a trend as a result of its water conservation benefit.
  1. Flexible Water Pressure. In terms of shower heads, seeing a movable shower head is something that is not foreign in the residential and commercial world. However, a shower that offers different shower pressure settings is something that is new. Flexible water pressure settings will allow you to set the water pressure whenever you take a shower. You can choose to have a vigorous blast or a soft mist with just one twist of the shower handle.
  1. Shower Sound System. Technology is continuously evolving, which gives rise to different improvements at home and all over. With this comes shower sound systems, which allows you to listen to your favorite band or singer while having your shower. You can listen to your favorite songs without worrying about electrocution. The shower sound system can be operated via an LCD screen, which is mounted on the shower wall. Showers with sound systems can also have flexible water pressure system, temperature control, and steam control. Nothing could possibly go wrong with this new shower technology.
