Prepare to combat chills. There's no getting around it – open showers can be drafty, especially in the winter months. Installing a heat lamp and radiant heat bathroom flooring can offset the shivers. Mount a heated towel rack nearby, and you'll be extra toasty as you dry off. Choose an appropriate showerhead. Unless you have a very large buffer zone, a standard showerhead that angles outward can end up soaking your space. Opt for a rain‐style model, which casts water straight down, or a handheld type that allows you to control the position and flow. If you do use a more conventional model, mount it so that the spray hits an opposite wall rather than the shower opening.
Urinals. Residential urinals can make your lavatory fun for boys while conserving water. Some manufacturers, including Kohler, offer waterless urinals for even greater water savings.
Magic mirror reflects current technology. Another mirror concept coming soon to homes can be found already in stores. A specially made full‐length mirror superimposes clothing on your reflection, creating the illusion that you’re wearing the selected item of clothing. It’s an easy way to cycle through a large number of garments without wasting time trying them on. One example is the EON Interactive Mirror, which has already been installed in mall clothing stores.The system uses Microsoft’s Kinect technology, which was created for gaming and repurposed for retail marketing. As you can see, the illusion is pretty good.
