Combining convenience with luxury, the popularity of smart home products is set to continue to grow as we progress through 2020. Smart home plumbing trends for 2020 will permeate kitchen design, bathroom design and even yard design.

Voice Activated Faucet
A voice activated faucet is a simple yet functional addition to any home, likely to appear in kitchens and bathrooms across the US as we progress through 2020. A voice activated faucet means no more touching the faucet to turn it on or off after washing, improving hygiene. Voice activated faucets are also very helpful for many people aging in place or in need of a more accessible home. Voice activated faucets often work with Amazon’s Alexa, or Google Assistant.
Showering can be a refreshing, relaxing experience with the right shower system in place. Smart showers can make taking a shower more luxurious. Similarly to the voice activated faucet, your smart shower would be voice controlled, enabling you to effortlessly turn the shower on and off, choose your water temperature and even choose the amount of time your shower runs for, reducing water consumption and helping you keep to schedule.
Smart Home and Environmentally Friendly Plumbing
Smart home plumbing can also help with aforementioned environmentally friendly plumbing goals. Usage monitors can help homeowners stay aware of their water consumption and spend, while leak detectors can reduce the amount of water we waste as well as bringing the cost of your water bill down.
