new home construction commerce townshipNew home construction is a blank slate for incorporating technology. Advances in technology can make running your household less of a chore.
1) Electric and Utility Technology
A programmable thermostat allows a homeowner to save on heating and cooling costs. Set a cyclical temperature profile to run each day of the week. The temperature can be lower in the winter and hotter in the summer during working or sleeping hours.
A security system integrated into the doors and windows of your new home construction provides peace of mind and safety. Central control panels in areas like the kitchen and master bedroom are easy to monitor. They alert you to the area of intrusion to protect your family and valuables.
Touch activated faucets are great for cleaning up messy hands. Motion sensor lights around the house provide security. Indoors, you’ll find yourself reminding children to turn out the lights less often.
2) Kitchen Technology
Jot down items for your next grocery trip on a smart screen mounted in the kitchen. Use it to flip through a recipe on your Pinterest page. Electronic pictures for each step beat stuck together cookbook pages any day. Custom cabinetry hides the refrigerator and trash compactor discretely in your new home construction.
3) Office and Entertainment Technology
Make space for a home office in your layout. A central location for the home computer, printer, scanner, and gadget docking stations keeps your technology organized (and off the dinner table). A media room is another option for additional privacy, more comfortable chairs, and cheaper, tastier popcorn than the theater. A television in the living room can be concealed by a transitional mirror or lowered by an electric lift. Speakers can be built into walls while wires can be run underneath the floor.
4) Decorating Technology
Use an application or computer program to view the results of your home project before making costly and time consuming mistakes. Eliminate mismatched paint colors, and layouts that feel cramped without wide enough walking spaces.
