Without sounding too cliche…The kitchen is the heart of the home, serving as not only a place to cook and prepare meals but also a place to entertain guests, relax, and dine. As homes become smarter and more connected, it’s only natural that the Kitchen should follow suit. It’s time to talk connected Kitchens…

Here’s a few of our Smart Kitchen must haves: 

Smart appliances
With the rise of smart home technology, it’s now possible to connect almost any kitchen appliance to your smart home system for ultimate ease and control. From smart dishwashers and ovens to coffee machines that can be controlled from your phone, there is a multitude of options to choose from. You can have a hot cup of coffee waiting for you as soon as you get out of bed or have your dinner preheated and ready to go as soon as you walk in the door. Just don’t forget to load your mug in the coffee machine the night before!

The right lighting can have a significant impact on the mood of the space and can be easily controlled through apps or smart home control systems. With the touch of a button, you can change the feel of any room. For example, you can create a pre-set “entertain” scene that automatically sets the perfect mood lighting for your dinner parties.

Whether you’re cooking, dining, or entertaining guests, having music in the kitchen can add a whole new dimension to the space. There are a wide range of speakers available on the market today and In-ceiling speakers are definitely worth considering when creating your smart Kitchen. As the name suggests, they’re hidden away in the ceiling and are a great way to listen to your favourite podcasts or play your favourite sing-along songs, without taking up any precious counter space.

Automated blinds and curtains can play a significant role in creating a connected kitchen. By having them move in tune with your daily routine, you can ensure that your kitchen is well-lit in the morning and that the blinds close automatically at dusk. This can also be set to the astronomical clock based on your exact location, which will automatically open and close the blinds based on the precise sunrise and sunset times throughout the year. We will be going into more detail about the benefits of controlling natural light in your home in a future post, so keep an eye out!
