3 Gadgets That Are Revolutionizing Home Design

The global smart home market is expected to increase by nearly 250% in terms of unit shipments from 2017 to 2019. As the world moves increasingly more and more into a digital realm, home buyers and even designers are looking for unique ways to incorporate smart home technology devices into their living spaces to meet their digital needs. While smart homes have become a high demand amongst millennials, homeowners and architects all around the world can benefit from gadgets and home automation technology in terms of practicality, sustainability and even functionality.

Interactive & 3D Wall Panels

While lighting, heating and cooling smart systems add a unique and interactive touch to your home, 3D wall panels are setting the stage for a totally transformed home design that is interactive as well as practical. From a design standpoint, they can add interesting shape and dimension to a single wall or an entire room, and because they come in a wide variety of different materials and finishes, they allow for more creativity. In addition, these panels not only allow you to incorporate a stunning arrangement of light and shadow into your home, but they can potentially benefit those that suffer with sensory conditions such as autism.

3D Printing Allows for Architectural Innovation 

Many designers have raced to create the first 3D-printed house, with projects popping up in Russia and China, and even a micro-house that was recently built in Amsterdam. The idea behind utilizing 3D printing is to encourage architectural innovation. Jonathan Shea, the senior project manager at the New York architectural firm EDG, said of the innovative technology, “Our hope is that architects and building owners alike will now find the freedom to create captivating and engaging facades that break the monotony of recent trends. With our method of construction, even on a project where cost governs, ornamentation can be designed and incorporated into the facade without exceeding the budget.”

Artificial Intelligence Provides Personalization

With the introduction of artificial intelligence in the form of smart learning thermostats, lighting and even smart kitchen appliances, your home can slowly learn more about the habits of you and your family in order to customize your living experience and reduce expenses. Because a smart thermostat, for example, can learn the schedules of your family and turn off and on according to when people are home, it can reduce the amount of unnecessary heating and cooling fees you assume each month by up to 10-12% on heating and 15% savings on cooling, or about $131-145 in savings a year. These systems use artificial intelligence and sensors to detect movement, changes, and habits according to a schedule in order to make your home more eco-friendly and personalized to your tastes.

Smart Technology Revolutionizing the Way We Live

The objective of integrating smart technologies into home design is to make day-to-day living and completing everyday tasks simpler for the average homeowner. By automating processes and systems within a home, designers are not only able to innovate in regards to design and creativity, they are able to increase sustainability, practicality and make life easier for the people living in the home.
