Today’s home convenience has become somewhat synonymous to single device control. Over the past years, we have seen the surfacing of multiple controls over home appliances with references to security, temperature, entertainment, electronics, and lighting. With the popularity of handheld devices such as smart phones, the capability to control them becomes available in a single device. Imagine the comfort that home owners would get with controlling about 80 appliances through their smart phones.
Environmental awareness has reached the desks of home developers. Designs have become more concerned with allowing natural air to pass through windows to minimize the job of air conditioning systems. Several design options are also available to home owners to allow natural light to illuminate surfaces reducing the use of lighting systems. When it comes to the splash of color on surfaces, a popular greener choice would be the use of zero VOC and odorless paints. Home owners can also grab the opportunity of using recycled construction materials such as flooring tiles and wall panels.
Open Kitchen Designs
Many home developers are starting to see the refreshing appeal that open areas bring into a house. One implementation of such idea is the introduction of outdoor kitchens. Imagine the comfort that the cool wind can bring while you are cooking your favorite dishes. Top it up with the added convenience of getting the freshest ingredients right from your own vegetable garden. Various methods have become available to impose this. From the simplest way of having an outdoor grill for your meat and fish to complex built-in cook tops located just near the covered decks or patio. Designs of outside kitchens are more elevated to lessen the times an individual has to bend while preparing and cooking the dishes.
