More than 60 percent of millennial women believe that having smart technology in a home makes that home safer and more enjoyable, according to a Better Homes and Gardens survey.
Of that 60 percent, 57 percent also believe that adding smart technology to a home is a good investment. Considering that millennials make up a good portion of the buyer’s market, it may make sense to think about adding smart appliances into your kitchen remodel.
Here are some additional ways that smart appliances can add value to your kitchen remodel in Plant City, Lakeland, Winter Haven, and other central Florida areas.
If you’re thinking about selling your home in the future, there are ways you can differentiate your home from the others on the market. One of those ways is to add smart appliances in your kitchen. Smart ovens can be controlled through devices such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, and smart refrigerators can sync up to apps on your smartphone.
Not every house is going to have these kinds of appliances, and when people are searching for a new home, they will more than likely be searching for a convenient, move-in ready home that’s also energy efficient. If your kitchen is up-to-date and stylish with upgraded smart appliances, that’s going to end up being a huge perk for potential buyers.
Many of us have sat around, waiting on our older ovens to preheat so we can begin cooking dinner. With a smart oven, you can tell your Alexa or other virtual assistant to begin preheating while you’re doing something else.
Some smart refrigerators come with tablet screens on the outside that can work as memo boards, providing an easy way to remind the entire family of upcoming events. They can also have cameras on the inside, so if you’re at the store and don’t remember if you need a particular food item, you can access that camera to look inside your fridge.
If you want to add smaller smart appliances to your kitchen remodel, that’s also a possibility. Some microwaves are now WiFi enabled, as well as blenders, kitchen thermometers, slow cookers, coffee makers, and more.
Our team can help you choose the right appliances that fit your lifestyle and desires.
Most smart appliances are made with stainless steel, which has consistently been one of the most popular finishes for appliances in recent years. Stainless steel matches with almost every color, is easy to clean, and is also resistant to bacteria. A more recent trend is to buy black stainless steel appliances, which also claim to be fingerprint-resistant. With their smooth surfaces and tablet screens, smart appliances can make your kitchen look trendy and sleek.
In the long run, it’s up to you how much these appliances will make a difference in your home. If you’re looking for convenience and differentiators, then these will be a great addition. They’re not your only option to consider, though.
