3 Smart Home Decor Tech You Actually Want
We are currently all being safer-at-home. As we adapt to our new reality, I am trying to find a balance between work, school, Netflix, gaming and just keeping busy. This got me thinking about all those little home fixing and decor projects I have been putting off. Besides changing random light bulbs, I started looking at how tech has changed the home.
Of course, being a tech-geek, I had to research the tech aspect of home decor and of course, I discovered some awesome gadgets:
Lighting is not just about having lights in a room just so don’t bump into the coffee table on the way to the kitchen. Lighting a room can not only change the mood but also the perceived size of your room. And lights are not restricted to ceilings only. When you customize a room and hang up a custom canvas prints on your wall, you can use lights to frame the canvas or use light to draw attention to it.
It is important to pay attention to the placement of lighting in your interior design to make sure it works in conjunction with the paint color, the size of the room, furniture selection, and availability of natural light. All these elements come together to transform your room.
I recently installed the Lutron Smart Home system which allows me to control the lights via a remote and via an app. This allows me to change the light’s color, and intensity to give the room the feel I am going for.
Smart Herb Garden
I love fresh herbs but I am a terrible gardener. I have no green-fingers at all. Thankfully technology is here to help with an indoor herb garden giving you quick access to fresh and aromatic herbs to spice up your dishes.
This is the AeroGarden Bounty Indoor Hydroponic Herb Garden, a Smart-herb garden if you will.
The smart-herb garden allows you to plant things like cilantro, tomatoes, mint, basil, and more just by inserting a pod into the machine. You add water to a tank, press a button and it does the rest for you. The smart soil keeps the compost and water distributed evenly so that the roots have proper access to nutrition at all times. It ensures that the plants have the right pH-level, and they get enough oxygen and nutrients that are required for healthy growth.
The kitchen is no stranger to constant innovation. There are many smart kitchen gadgets that make your cooking space is functional and beautiful. The new wave of kitchen accessories not only saves you time and effort, but they also add to the appeal of your kitchen.
While we all love BIG gadgets such as the Samsung Smart Fridge with its built-in tablet, don’t forget to look for the small gadgets that make life a little easier too. I love practical stuff like the Quirky Egg Minder Wink App Enabled Smart Egg Tray. You place your eggs on the tray and it will alert you when you are running low on eggs. Simple. Effective.
Another amazing gadget is the Smart Instant Pot with built-in WiFi. You can set your ingredients in the pot and then use the app to get it to start the cooking process. based on when you want dinner. You can also connect it to your home assistant so you can shout “Hey Google, let’s get cooking” and the Instant Pot gets your meal going.
So In Summary:
Technology has touched all aspects of our lives, and home décor has no exception. There are countless other ways in which technology can improve and simplify home décor at all price points. It’s all about finding what works for you so you can personalize your home and make it an amazing space for you and your family.
