If you are in the process of remodeling your kitchen, why not consider adding some time-saving technology? With today’s technological advancements, your life in the kitchen can be even more fun and convenient. Build a modern kitchen using some of our technology ideas to include in your smart kitchen remodel. Here is a list of our 6 favorite kitchen technology ideas.
1. Virtual Assistant
A Google Home or Alexa can make life a lot more convenient in all areas, but particularly in the kitchen. Need to set a timer for the oven or stove? Just ask your virtual assistant to help. Looking for a few fresh new cooking ideas? Ask Alexa to share some ideas. Play background music, keep track of recipes, and more with a virtual assistant located in your kitchen.
2. Charging Stations
Additionally, setting up a few charging stations around your kitchen allows you to keep your phone or tablet open for music or recipes. Or, a charging station located in a drawer keeps cords out of sight while allowing you to charge everything in one consolidated area.
3. Touch-Activated Faucets
You probably know the pain of trying to turn on your kitchen faucet with a hand covered in raw chicken, oil, or dirt. With a touch-activated faucet, a single tap from your wrist or elbow turns the water on, preventing cross-contamination between your hands and the handles.
4. Smart Appliances
To really update your kitchen, consider investing in smart appliances. A smart fridge has wifi and a touch screen, allowing you to make grocery lists, access music, and more. Likewise, a smart oven can be controlled from your smartphone, so you can get it preheating while you are on your way home from work. Motion-sensing trash cans and faucets also make life a little bit easier.
5. Smart Cookware
Have you ever heard of smart cookware? Coffee pots and slow cookers can be pre-set or controlled from your personal device to start brewing or cooking at a certain time. This eliminates the need for you to be present to attend to your pots and pans. Instead, wake up to a fresh pot of coffee or come home to a hot dinner, all with the click of a button.
6. Smart Lighting
Finally, don’t discount the merits of smart lighting in your kitchen. Automatic lighting as well as dimmable lighting help personalize the atmosphere of the room. Don’t forget to invest in an energy-efficient lighting system to save money on your utility bill.
