What’s next? A high-tech bath

Who needs to bend over a tub and turn on the faucet when you can fill it using an app or voice command?

What’s happening: The bath specialists at Kohler rolled out a bunch of new smart home technology this week at CES in Las Vegas, including PerfectFill, a $2,700 smart bathing feature that draws a bath to a preferred temperature and depth, Joann writes.

How it works: If you’re busy cleaning up after dinner, just ask Alexa or Google to run the kids’ bath for you.

  • You don’t have to stand around waiting for the tub to fill, and you don’t have to worry the water will scald your child or overflow onto the bathroom floor.
  • You can program up to 10 bath times through the Kohler Konnect app. 

If you really want to splurge, you can opt for Kohler’s $8,000 Stillness Bath, a multi-sensory bathing experience inspired by Japanese forest bathing.

  • It combines water, light, fog and aroma to create what Kohler calls an “at home spa-like experience.”

The top of the line Infinity Experience allows water to flow over the edges into a hinoki wood base, for a trickling waterfall sound.
