One of the coolest additions that you can do to your bathroom is a touchless sensor faucet. You only need to hover your hand on its top part and it will automatically diffuse water. The best part is its ability to save up to 30-50% more water than traditional ones. There are many excellent faucet manufacturers like TCK that you can check out when looking for a sensor tap.

Another good reason to opt for a touchless sensor faucet is to avoid cross-contamination of germs and bacteria. Since you don’t need to touch the faucet’s body, you can keep your hands clean of the potential microorganisms present there.
