The possibilities of how your home functions is altered by having modern technological advancements, even in kitchens. Since the days of iceboxes and ticking kitchen timers, we have come quite a way make sure to consider some tech when you have a kitchen remodeling in mind. The technology that is very helpful in the kitchen is what we at Straight Up Remodeling would like to discuss today.
USB Gadget Charging Stations
The perfect solution for charging phones, tablets, and cameras is a built-in charging station hidden in a drawer or cabinet. While ensuring your devices stay fully charged, this option frees counter space though it keeps them out of sight and maybe, out of mind.
Modern Kitchen Appliances
High-tech kitchen appliances make the kitchen activities a lot smoother despite the debate on their necessity. With smartphones controlling your stoves, a refrigerator featuring a touchscreen and the ability to stream music, a microwave that customizes its presets based on your usage and trashcans you can open with the wave of a hand; you can really max out the technology in your kitchen. High-tech kitchen appliances might need to be replaced sooner since technology evolves quickly compared to their low-tech counterparts.
Should I Get a Google Home or Alexa?
You can quickly access recipes, and even have recipes read to you with hands-free devices like Google Home and Alexa in addition to setting multiple timers, learn quick measurement conversions, ask questions, and more. Since you can create a Kitchen Playlist, listen to a podcast all to make cooking easier and fun, you can enjoy your favorite tunes while you work as well.
Where Should a TV Be Placed in a Kitchen?
Small television screens or tablets can help with meal prep or provide entertainment. You can designate a shelving area or get creative by hiding a screen inside a cabinet and just remember to plan for a cable hookup and make room for wires.
Kitchen Device Management
Though it is not necessary technology, this is for your tech. The notion of having a big bowl in the center of your table is something many people love for everyone who sits down for a meal has to place their phone in the bowl. This method offers a much-needed break from the technology many people seem to be addicted to. Make sure you enjoy a tech-free dinner, lively conversation, and even eye contact. The bowl can be built into the shelving, counter and other such options.
Touchless Kitchen Faucets
This may be the most practical of all the kitchen technology inventions. With a touch-activated kitchen faucet, you can turn the water on and off with just a touch of your hand, wrist, arm, or elbow. This is perfect for those moments when you don’t want to make a bigger mess trying to get clean. A touchless faucet turns on by making a waving motion in front of it.
