Three reasons why 3D printing will transform bathroom and kitchen design

The constructions industry is not new to the world of 3D printing. As we mentioned before, several startups are starting to use the technology to develop new buildings and living in a 3D printed house doesn’t seem to be a remote possibility.

3D printing, however, is not expected to affect only the way houses will look from the outside.  The technology has, in fact, all the capabilities to change the way we design kitchens and bathrooms.

What are the advantages of having 3D printed elements in your kitchen or bathroom?

There are different reasons to involve 3D printing technology into the interior design process. Here are the top three:

 

Sustainability

3D printing allows manufacturers to produce exactly what the customer needs.

This naturally translates into less unnecessarily manufactured products, which leads to less waste and less energy consumption.

 

Reparability

3D printed products can often be repaired instead of being entirely replaced. This is not always the case for products manufactured the old fashion way.

The option to 3D print spare parts will reduce the personal waste of a consumer over the course of a lifetime.

 

Customization

 Having a customized element in your bathroom or kitchen is not really a new concept. But this service nowadays comes with a significant price tag. 3D printing might make this solution more accessible to average homeowners.

 

All these factors lead us to think, and hope, that 3D printing will soon become one of the main technologies involved in the design of interiors, making our future homes a better place for us and for the rest of the world.
