Our homes are now becoming smarter and smarter, with the ability to organise our household regimes, answer our questions, keep us secure and even play our favourites songs on demand! Today, working from home has become a reality for many people, which has been made possible by advanced connectivity and devices that are increasingly faster, more portable, and higher-powered than ever before.
Now is the perfect time to think about how we can embrace and incorporate smart technology into our homes in a way that enhances our lives but does not compromise the ‘look and feel’. It is often the case that technological devices can look harsh and out-of-place in a beautifully designed room. Typically, in the past we have stereotyped screens, cables, plugs and monitors as ‘ugly’ due to the cold, sterile looking shapes and textures in which they are manufactured. Luckily, new-age product designers are taking this into account and coming up with ways to soften the look of these products and consider them in the same way we would consider any other item we incorporate into the interior design of our home.
