HOUSTON – If you want to modernize your bathroom, there are smart ways to transform that important space in your home without lifting a hammer.

Kathryn Emery, home improvement & lifestyle expert, is up to date with the latest trends and she shared with Houston Life 4 ideas to inspire you.

1. Update hardware and fixtures such as toilet paper holders

Product: Delta Toilet Paper Holder with Night Light

“You don’t need to wake yourself up from needing to turn the light on in the bathroom anymore. This toilet paper holder has a soft glow that guides you through the night, plus the brushed nickel makes it look modern. It holds 1 roll of tissue and pivot arm makes roll replacement easy,” said Emery.

2. Install a Bidet Toilet Seat for a better clean

Product: Brondell Swash EcoSeat 102

“Bidets are considered gentler & more hygienic than toilet paper, plus they’re better for the environment since there’s no waste in the ocean. Try a non-electronic bidet toilet seat - no power required. This one features a dual nozzle system (both rear and front washes), adjustable temperature, and adjustable water pressure,” said Emery.

3. Turn any shower into an immersive sensory experience

Product: KOHLER Moxie Bluetooth Showerhead, Shower Speaker, Waterproof Speaker

“This showerhead elevates your everyday showering. It’s Bluetooth-enabled to pair with your phone or other devices; plus the speaker easily removes, so you can bring it wherever you want to go - the beach, a picnic, or just lounging in your backyard,” said Emery.

4. Get filtered water to shower and brush your teeth

Product: A.O. Smith Whole House Water Filtration System

“We often think about the water we drink is filtered but what about the water we bathe in, or the water we use for brushing teeth, and more. It’s time to invest in a whole house water filter. It reduces 97% chlorine in water for clean, filtered water throughout your entire home,” said Emery.
