The Advancement of Bathroom Technology

Technology is advancing at an alarmingly fast rate. Think about mobile phones for a moment. The computers and internet of 25 years ago don’t even come close to the physical capabilities of mobile phones today. A portable computer which fits in your pocket is more powerful than the highest spec computers of the early 90’s which is a frightening notion. Think about the bulky and awkward TV’s of the early 90’s. A grainy picture, ludicrously heavy and approximately 24-28” as standard. Compare that to today where a 50” LCD HD Smart TV is relatively standard. Not just an upgrade in picture quality and size but also shape with it being flat screen and far lighter which makes moving them significantly easier. During this time period the shower industry remained stagnant and many were content to continue with simple showering options, with the standard shower heads in a basic enclosure or overhanging a bath. Why do we demand more and more in certain areas of our life, but remain content with others that are seriously dated, tedious and mundane? A gap in the market was there for everyone to see but no-one could see it. That was until Insignia came along. With technology improving in all walks of life, why was no-one tapping into a market that was universally used by most every single day? You know the industry I’m talking about as you’re on our blog, but for those a little slow on the uptake, I am of course talking about the shower. On average most people spend around 3 full days a year in the shower which is quite a long time. Why spend this amount of time in something substandard? Upgrade with the beautiful Insignia innovation and shower in luxury every single day, starting your day off in the best possible way. The shower revolution began with baby steps, introducing a shower enclosure with multiple showering options. The overhead monsoon rain shower, the multi-functional hand shower and the iconic hydro-massage jets. Next came the steam functionality and the FM radio so you can enjoy music and relax in comfort. The internal lighting created a beautiful atmospheric glow and perfection was born. Was it time to stop there? Did Steve Jobs stop at the iPhone 3GS? We all know the answer as many of us have an iPhone 6 or 7 in our possession and half of you are probably reading this blog on it. The constant upgrades and innovations were the main factor in Insignia’s meteoric rise from bathroom industry newcomers to being a household name. Now, you can expect a control panel which not only has an FM radio but also Bluetooth connectivity so you can enjoy Spotify or Apple Music from within your shower directly from your phone. The internal lighting has also been upgraded to Chromotherapy lighting which is seven different colours that can be fixed or scroll gently through to create a sensual relaxing experience. Elsewhere on the shower, we have streamlined and upgraded features to make everything look slicker and be aesthetically pleasing, the most notable being the ‘Tri-Jet Steam System’ which replaced the regulation steam pod found on most steam cabins. The shower should be the centrepiece to your bathroom and that is what we strive for here at Insignia. From the smallest detail to the final design, everything is meticulously created with aesthetics in mind. The aromatherapy and steam shower industry go hand in hand and as trendsetters, we simply had to get involved. Here at Insignia, we created our own range of essential oils so you could enjoy your steam shower even more than ever before. Of course, that’s not all we did, I mean come on, have you been reading this article? We change the game and change the industry every step we take. We don’t play by the rules, we make the rules! The new Aromatherapy Modular Injection system allows you to infuse your steam with essential oils, directly from inside the cabin which is the first of its kind amongst the steam community. Ease of use and convenience is what fuelled this concept and we’re proud to announce it comes, as standard on ALL Insignia Steam Showers. Oh, did I forget to mention it can also be retro-fitted to non Insignia steam showers? Even helping out the competition, such is our generosity. You’re Welcome! When it comes to customisation the game was really changed as recently as January 2017. Insignia Showers are now available in a choice of carbon colours which gives you, the customer, complete control over the colour option when deciding on your shower purchase. We keep moving forward on our quest for innovation and we show no signs of slowing down. What’s next I hear you ask? You’ll simply have to stay tuned and find out.
