Smart Home Technology

Interiors and smart home technology work so well together but I think some people are scared of them, however, I believe they are essential in making your home work smarter for you.

In business, they say work harder not smarter. Smart home interiors do exactly that. Homes are there to protect, shelter and to create a communal space for your loved ones. We all live busy lives and need all the help we can get, why not find ways to save time and energy so you can focus your attention on more important things. There are so many benefits to having a smart home system in your home, and one I particularly like is the idea of being able to control the various elements, allowing stress and anxiety to be a world away. Smart home technology has come a long way in recent years, it can now be retrofitted, meaning no disturbing you walls. Everything from blinds and gates, thermostats, light switches, water sprinkler, home safety.

Smart home technology is great for everyone, those with a disability, those who don’t have the same mobility they once used to. Why not spend your time and energy on more interesting things instead of everyday life basics. It can assist people to control their own lights without the aid of someone. Smart home lighting can also provide stunning effects to any home, and working with a lighting designer can create a really ambient atmosphere and a more functional space.

Now you are probably thinking what this has to do with interior Design. It has everything to do with design, interior design should not just improve the aesthetic, it should also improve the functionality; how you use your home.

The user experience should also be improved with a new design. Smart home technology really contributes to a better functioning home, along with many other things such as a better layout. Smart home tech used to be very unattractive, it has improved so much now and blends into the surroundings.
