How to Use Smart Technology to Achieve Your Goals
For designers, it’s crucial to stay on top of the latest trends to create dynamic and innovative spaces for their clients. Everything from colors to fabrics can play a vital role in shaping the right ambiance. Realizing technology can also play a significant role can make you stand out from competitors. As you explore the latest industry trends, it’s worth considering ways technology can help you. This blog highlights just a few examples of how smart home automation is a crucial partner in achieving the design goals in your next project in San Carlos or San Francisco.
Stylizing Your Wall Keypads
As bold wall patterns and colors become popular, excessive wall switches can quickly derail stylistic choices. A smart home automation system lets you replace those switches with elegant keypads that control not only lights but also shades and music. Each keypad has custom engraving, colors, and finishes to match up perfectly with the style you have in mind for your client.
Creating Fluid Entertainment Spaces
Movement is essential to creating dynamic spaces in a home. One way to create fluid spaces is to make it easy to share entertainment across them. How can the right technology help in this regard? Embrace multi-room audio solutions that let you seamlessly share music to one or multiple speakers. As the music fills the area, guests are more likely to move freely within it.
Using Technology as an Accenting Feature
Most designers consider electronics to be a hindrance to their décor choices. Now that ‘maximizing’ has become a popular trend, technology is an easy way to add bold black accents to any space. This is where smart home automation can help by letting you only showcase the components that fit the décor. Neatly hide away most equipment while allowing TV displays, dedicated touchpads, and elegant bookshelf speakers to add some personality to the space.
Creating a Relaxing Sleeping Environment
Now that bold is back, it is tempting to extend that trend to the bedroom. Cozy, clean environments are preferable in areas where relaxation is the primary goal. Eliminate distractions by either removing AV equipment or keeping it hidden until it’s ready to use. Dim lights or use a warm color temperature to encourage rest later in the day. Through a bedside touchpad or keypad, the client can then use their home automation system to raise the lights or pull down their TV when they wish.
Designing Unique Multi-Purpose Spaces
Getting the most out of each room without having a muddled design can be difficult. For multi-purpose rooms, smart home automation can play a pivotal role in changing the place for each occasion. Deploy scenes clients pull up with just a tap on their screen. These scenes automatically adjust lights, shades, and AV equipment depending on whether they’re watching a movie, hosting a party, or reading a book.
