Singin’ in the Rain


Showering is not just about getting clean anymore

“The shower is a retreat for users, a place to relax and wind down—or gear up for the day,” says Ashley Springer, associate product manager at Kohler. Case in point: Different types of sprays allow homeowners to personalize, upgrade, and customize their spaces.

Kohler’s Moxie showerhead includes a wireless speaker that can be embedded with Amazon’s Alexa so users can enjoy favorite tunes or catch up on podcasts while lathering up. Tuned specifically to overcome the white noise of the shower, the device offers hand-free control.

Springer says hand showers—great for targeting specific areas (think sore muscles), as well as bathing kids or pets—are also gaining popularity.
