The future of bathrooms is an exciting thing and there are many reasons why we should not look to the past when designing the future. The problem is that bathroom of the future look a lot like the bathrooms of the past, with the only addition being many different screens. There is a lot of information on the history of people and how we clean ourselves.

Key Takeaways:

  • We have been preoccupied with the healthy house on TreeHugger, and this year the class in Sustainable Design that I teach is trying to develop a sort of Well Standard for the home, looking at each space, each component.
  • As I have been preoccupied with the design of bathrooms for some time, I started the ball rolling here; much of the information has previously been on TreeHugger in the series I wrote on the history of the bathroom in 2011.
  • The problem with the bathroom of the future is that it so often looks like the bathroom of the past, just with a lot of screens added.

“The problem with the bathroom of the future is that it so often looks like the bathroom of the past, just with a lot of screens added. This one has a too small shower and a tub on a pedestal with shiny stairs, an uncomfortable deathtrap of a bathroom.”
