Today’s advances in technology have changed nothing, even in the kitchen. We have come a long way since the days of iceboxes and tick kitchen timers, so don’t leave the tech factor out if the layout of the kitchen is in your mind. These are our favorite ways to create a clever, clever kitchen.
With hands-free devices like Google Home and Alexa, you can set several timers, access recipes quickly, and read even recipes. It gets easier and more fun to cook–just ask your device to play a podcast or create a playlist “Kitchen” so that you can enjoy your favorite stuff while working.
We love moving telephones, tablets and cameras to a built-in charging station in a drawer. This release counter space while ensuring that your devices are fully loaded, but also keeps them out of sight (and perhaps out of sight).
This could be the most realistic of all kitchen engineering innovations. You can turn the water on and off with a touch-activated kitchen faucet with just one touch of hand, wrist, arm or elbow. It is perfect when your hands are chaotic and you don’t want to make a big mess trying to get clean.
Small TV screens and tablets are able to help with meals and entertainment. Williams Sonoma Screens. You can identify a hanging area or create by hiding a screen inside the cabinet-just remember to plan a cable connection and make room for wires.
Kitchen appliances While high-tech kitchen appliances may not be needed, they are certainly fun. If you want to maximize kitchens technology, choose a touch screen refrigerator and music streaming capacity, a smartphone stove, a trashcan to be opened using a hand wave, and a microwave that adjusts the presets according to your usage. Just keep in mind that technology develops rapidly, which could require replacing high-tech kitchen appliances before their low-tech counterparts.
Device bowl Okay, so this one is low-tech, but for technology. We love the idea of a big bowl in the middle of your table so everyone sitting in the bowl has to put their telephone. It promises a tech-free dinner, lively discussion, eye contact and a much-needed break from our beloved devices.
Kitchen technology can make cooking and working in the kitchen easier–and funner–so don’t forget to consider kitchen technology when you think about your kitchen design.
