It’s 2017 and the future is here! There are so many new and exciting devices coming out every day and you don’t have to be afraid of incorporating them into your décor anymore. Technology is no longer a handy but ugly part of life that you need to find a hiding place for. Use these 4 steps to start your journey to a beautiful smart home of your own!
Find devices that can be controlled by an app or your voice.
No longer do you have to worry about finding a clever way to store your remotes so no one sees them. Remotes are typically not devices you want laying around that for guests to see. Luckily, now this is no longer an item you have to worry about clashing with your décor! Look for devices you can control by talking to or with a tap of your tablet so you can clear up the space your remotes took up.
Home security is in style.
What better way is there to take advantage of emerging technology than by protecting your family? It may not seem like security systems can be stylish, but companies have started coming out with systems that you can fit with your décor perfectly! There are sleek systems that can fit seamlessly into your décor while protecting you by sensing for intruders and gas leaks. Check out deals on home security systems at Best Buy, like the DIY system SimpliSafe.
Incorporate tech into your kitchen.
The kitchen might be the most fun room to update with technology. These devices make cooking and shopping easier, and still look wonderful in your home. Appliances like refrigerators and coffee pots have interfaces you can edit to show what you’d like, whether that’s sticky notes with reminders, personal photos, or a classic analog clock. This awesome tech is allowing us to personalize our appliances to fit in with our homes.
Keep your home tidy.
There’s no easier way to make your home look great than by cleaning it up a bit. Don’t worry – technology can take care of your chores now too! There are robotic vacuums, mops, and even lawnmowers now that can clean for you while you sit back and relax… or work on your next home project! They come in a great variety of colors and are small and compact, so they won’t take up much space and look great with your color scheme.
What about you? Do you have smart home technology in your home? How do you incorporate it into your decor so it’s stylish but still functional? I’d love to hear your comments below.
