One thing is certain: Situations in life change. Perhaps you have already thought about how to guarantee added convenience and safety in your bathroom over the long term, or in short: what your future-proof bathroom might look like.

Finally, good lighting should also be considered, to provide orientation at all times and support safe handling of the technology. Night lighting rounds off the lighting concept.
