Today I have a featured guest post for you, on top technology for your home, I love the idea of the kettle and the fire:
If you have bought a period property from an estate agents in Islington, Shepherd’s Bush or even Mayfair you may be looking for the perfect subtle and modern influences for that final added touch to the décor. Something that will complement the beautiful classic features while keeping your home in the 21st century. Sound like you? Then take a look at these top pieces of technology for your home:
Have you ever dreamt of boiling the kettle without getting up from your desk or off the sofa? Then the iKettle would make the perfect addition to your home.
As long as you have a Wi-Fi connection you can boil your kettle at the click of a button on your smartphone. The iKettle even has an alarm clock function so you can be woken up in the morning by your smartphone saying “Good morning! Would you like me to pop the kettle on?” It will then let you know that the water is boiled and ask whether you would like it straight away or if you would like to snooze a little. Of course you will have to get up and actually pour the drink though!
One of the hardest things when placing modern conveniences in a period home is blending them in seamlessly. Well, with this transparent TV you can completely hide them. Designed by Michael Friebe, this TV uses LCD and TOLED display technology to project a solid moving picture that disappears when the device is turned off. It’s the best of both worlds!
Floor Plan Light Switch
Never get confused again about which light switch controls which light fitting, with this handy light switch. Taewon Hwang created this master switch with simple genius; each room has a corresponding lit up area on the floor plan and it’s touch sensitive so no more sticking switches.
Motorised Tie Rack
Do you or your partner wear a suit to work on a daily basis? Then there are probably a lot of ties littering your dressing room. Tidy up with this convenient motorised tie rack which can organise up to 50 ties and belts while clamped on to a standard clothes rail. Press the button and the carousel will rotate and light up, allowing a tie to be chosen even in the dark.
Kohler Numi Toilet
For an eco-friendly addition to your new home invest in a Numi toilet. A Numi is SO much more than the average toilet. Some of its features include:
- A motion-activated seat and lid
- A multi-option bidet wand
- An air dryer
- A deodorizing charcoal filter
- Illuminated panels
- A foot warmer
- Built-in music speakers
- Remote docking station
This fireplace is modern style incarnated. Its chic design is encased in fine leather and moulded from aluminium. It is also portable, so if you want it in your living room one moment and in your bedroom the next, it’s possible!
Winbot Robot Window Cleaner
You can hire a cleaner to wash the outside of your windows but what about the inside? After all, that is where you are likely to get hand prints or smudges. Well, with the Winbot there is no need to get out the squeegee. Simply fill with the cleaning solution, attach to a window and press power. This clever little machine will work out the size of the glass and map out a route to travel across it. The window will be cleaned in three stages: spray, squeegee and wipe; leaving you with beautifully clear windows.
So what do you think? Will you be updating the gadgets in your new home?
