Because technology has advanced significantly since the days of iceboxes and ticking kitchen timers, it is important to consider it while designing a kitchen. Here are some great tech ideas for your new kitchen from the team at Booher Remodeling Company.
Smart Home Devices
You can set numerous timers, retrieve recipes easily, and even have recipes read to you using hands-free devices like Google Home and Alexa. Make cooking more enjoyable by simply asking your smartphone to play a podcast or make a “kitchen” playlist so you can listen to your favorite music while you work.
Many people enjoy placing cameras, tablets, and cell phones at a built-in charging station that is tucked away in a drawer. This frees up counter space and keeps your gadgets fully charged while still keeping them hidden (and out of mind).
Of all the innovations in kitchen technology, this one may be the most useful. A touch of your hand, wrist, arm, or elbow is all it takes to turn the water on or off with a touch-activated kitchen faucet. It’s ideal for situations where you have messy hands and don’t want to make things worse by trying to clean them.
Tablets or small televisions can entertain you as you prepare meals. Just be sure to arrange your cable hookups and create room for wiring so that it doesn’t look messy. You might designate a shelving area or get inventive by concealing a screen within a cabinet.
Even though you might not need them, modern kitchen appliances are certainly entertaining. Choose a stove you can operate from your smartphone, a trashcan you can open with the wave of a hand, a refrigerator with a touchscreen and the capacity to stream music, or a microwave that adapts its presets based on how you use it. Just keep in mind that technology is constantly evolving, so high-tech kitchen equipment may need to be replaced more frequently than low-tech ones.
