The Rise of Smart Kitchens
Smart kitchens are becoming increasingly popular as people look for new and exciting ways to transform their living space. From technology enhanced gadgets to beautiful lighting set-ups, smart home specialists are being tasked with more and more unique set-ups. So, let’s take a closer look at how smart technology is transforming the traditional kitchen.
Smart lighting has many benefits. It can adapt to your mood, is easy to dim, comes in many different colours and can turn off automatically, helping to save electricity. Many people opt for smart lighting in living rooms and bedrooms, but with Lutron lighting, you can take this technology into the kitchen to create your very own lighting scenes. All lighting is operated via a single control too for ease of use.
If you have a large, open plan kitchen, for example, you might choose to have bright lights over the cooker and work surfaces. The rest of the room can be dimly or colourfully lit with LEDs to create a relaxed atmosphere. Lighting can also be used to emphasise any unique features in your kitchen such as sculptures or artwork.
Lutron lighting also works alongside automated kitchen blinds. These can be set to rise and fall with the natural light, to ensure the light quality in your kitchen is always perfect.
Smart Kitchen Appliances
With connected kitchen appliances, you can cook like a top chef. Once your smart appliances are connected to your home’s WiFi, you can control them via an app on your smartphone or through voice commands. For example, you can turn on the oven on your way back from work or ask the coffee machine to brew your favourite beverage while you’re still tucked up in bed. Apps can even be used to turn on the dishwasher or washing machine and smart cookware can be used to monitor cooking temperatures and adjust them as needed, resulting in perfectly cooked dishes every time. With control at your fingertips, it’s easy to see why smart kitchens are becoming the next big thing.
Smart Voice Assistants
Voice assistants are hard to live without these days. After all, you can set reminders, write shopping lists and more. Take your assistant (be it Amazon Alexa or Google Home) into the kitchen and you can also set a time for your casserole, follow a recipe or listen to the radio. Smart technology in the kitchen just makes sense, especially when you can add items to a shopping list which can then be ordered online with a simple instruction.
Technology has advanced considerably over the last few years and is designed to make your life easier. With professional smart home installation, you can benefit from all the latest connected gadgets and updates – so don’t miss out.
