My Toilet Has Never Been Brighter!

I could write about it if I wanted to but it wasn’t necessary . Well I got the item last weekend and I have been trying it out over the past week with some exciting results.

What is it you ask? Well I won’t lie, it is kind of a strange product. The item is called the Illumibowl. Essentially it is a motion activated LED light that you place in your toilet so you can see in the dark. No more waking up in the middle of the night only to be blinded by the bathroom lights. Or better yet you’re not tripping over anything or missing your target. The idea is a kind of funny, a light that can display a range of colors that you put in your toilet so you can see at night. It has novelty written all over it, but let me tell you it is actually really useful.

Once you get past the novelty of the product you begin to realize that this little device is actually helpful. I got mine installed easy enough and set the color to something that matches our decor (red). The light illuminated the toilet as well as a good portion of the bathroom. The first night it was already in use. I work up around 2 AM and used the bathroom, once I entered the motion detection kicked in and the bowl began to glow red. I could see and it wasn’t straining my eyes with bright light.

The Illumibowl is a fantastic idea and one that I am surprised isn’t built right into new toilets. The ability to change the colors is really cool too. So if a red or yellow is too bright for your eyes you still have plenty of colors to check out. All in all the Illumibowl is an awesome little device that can definitely help out in more ways than just one. Plus it is relatively cheap so it won’t break the bank. Check them out on their official website

I did take some pictures of the Illumibowl in action but my wife vetoed the pictures. She gets that power when it comes to showing off pictures of our toilet. But take my word for it or check out Illumibowl on Instagram. They have plenty of examples that look pretty much identical to our setup.

She is the foundation of our family, and without her, none of this would be possible. During the day I work as a network security administrator for a local school district. At night I can be found illustrating books, working on websites, or creating music, but more than likely though I am spending time with my kids.
