For most of us, January is the perfect time for a good old fashioned declutter, to get the house ready for a full spring clean and start thinking about essential repair work which can be carried out around your home as the weather improves. The nights are gloomy, the weather is uninviting, and if you are anything like us, you probably have a home filled with leftover Christmas clutter, old toys, unwanted furniture and more. Now is the perfect time to examine your home closely for any neglected furniture and bric a brac, sort through and begin to clear it. Larger charity organisations often have space for furnishings and white goods in reasonable condition, or look at freecycle or think about selling them. If not, perhaps some is worthy of ï¿½upcyclingï¿½ and reusing somewhere else? A coat of paint and a new location can cheer up almost any piece of furniture!
The Home of the Future
All of our blogs have been looking in the same direction recently ï¿½ whether in motoring, home improvements, design or event planning, wearable, in house, integrated technology is on its way, in a big way. Where the thought of remotely controlled homes was not so long ago the preserve of fantasy such as the Jetsons, we are now seeing more and more integrated technology in our homes being used by ordinary people every day.
The Nest and Hive Active Heating
Both prime examples, both offering you the ability to use your smart phone or tablet to fully control the heating and water in your home from where ever you are. Simply have the controls installed in your home by a qualified plumber or heating engineer, down load an app, and eureka ï¿½ sudden freak storm? Pop the heating on boost before you leave work to make sure itï¿½s toasty warm. Kids covered in mud after school? Warm the water for a hot bath in the middle of the day. All the reviews we have seen suggest householders are really happy with the systems and installation. We thoroughly approve of this kind of technology being used in intelligent home design, especially when you think of the money saving abilities and minimised carbon footprint / energy efficiency using your central heating as needed rather than for set blocks of time will produce.
Intelligent Light and Sound
There is more. Intelligent, app controlled lighting which can be used as a gentle alarm, to create colour effects and enhance mood and ambient lighting, which are as simple to install as a hub and special light bulbs. There are now a variety of companies doing fully integrated sound which again are controlled via a hub and smart phone app, offering perfect, crystal clear sound in every room of the house. Integrated home audio is now appearing alongside other innovative features in many modern new builds, and can be installed in older buildings for less than you might think.
None of these are quite the same as a cleaning robot or decorating droid, obviously, but with advancements happening at the speed of light, who knows what next years Home and Garden news might bring you!
