Whilst technology has previously been much more of a focus in other rooms within the home, recent years have seen it flood into the bathroom market. After all, the bathroom provides one of the only areas of modern day life where it’s perfectly acceptable to shut the door, cut off from the world and enjoy some ‘me’ time. As such, it’s imperative that the products that go into this room serve to create ambience and comfort. USB integration is the perfect place to start. An extremely desirable addition to many home accessories, such as bathroom mirrors and mirrored cabinets, it offers a convenient charging option to facilitate modern consumers’ always-on lifestyles. The popularity of smartphones is causing the way consumers use their interior spaces to evolve. Although some may object to the thought, many people take their smartphone wherever they go, and the bathroom is no exception. Retailers can capitalise on this trend by stocking products which offer gadget lovers the ability to keep their devices charged up in a convenient and – crucially, for a bathroom – safe manner. Although they have many applications, the possibilities for entertainment via music or even a good podcast are what attract many people to smartphones. The bathroom is where many people find sanctuary, and the perfect sound can either amplify the invigorating effects of a morning shower or foster a relaxed vibe to complement a luxurious bubble bath. People shouldn’t have to sacrifice style for functionality either; the right centrepiece should enhance surrounding décor whilst also offering practical benefits. That’s why our ranges are developed in such a way that retailers can offer a tech-driven bathroom mirror or mirrored sabinet which has both beauty and brains. HiB range which feature USB technology include: Ether Cabinet, Connect mirror and Vapor cabinet.
