Surprises in the bathroom aren't necessarily welcomed in most homes, but when I stopped by the Duravit showroom to check out the latest in modern bath furnishings, I was unexpectedly pleased to discover their latest shower-toilet: the Sensowash. Click through to learn more about this most accommodating commode.
As a leader of bathroom fixtures and furnishings since 1918, Duravit is always pushing the envelope when it comes to modern design, sustainable solutions and functionality. As the modern shower-toilet (toilet-meets-bidet) become more popular around the world, I was excited to see this German company now manufacturing one accessible to the American homeowner.
With a nifty magnetic remote offering a wide range of functions like automatic seat opening and closing, wash and pressure adjustment, warm or cool fan options and heated seat, using the Sensowash is more like receiving a soothing, robotic spa treatment than your everyday "pit stop." Luckily, the system even allows you to program preferences into multiple profiles so that you don't get lost spending endless amounts of time toying with all the functions.
First meeting the Duravit Sensowash is kind of like walking into an awkward blind date, but by the end of the experience, you really hope they will call you again.
