After studying a large number of user behaviors and bathroom environment, interviews are carried out for in-depth analysis, in order to explore users’ potential demands. Eventually shelf for bathing products and drying module are added, so that it can better meet the requirements in the whole bathing process. Shelf can effectively calm user in the bathing process, and reduce the area of independent shelf in bathing space. The drying module can dry and sterilize bath washcloth, towels and other personal staff, prevent the damp environment from having bacteria problem, and enable users to enjoy comfortable bathing.
