There’s an obvious trend in the home improvement market and it involves smart technologies and robust technology platforms. While there’s no doubt that smart home technology is the way of the future, most people aren’t willing to sacrifice the look and feel of traditional home features. Interestingly, you may not have to choose one or the other.
Recent developments in smart home technology put the importance of visually appealing design equal to that of functionality. This came about as designers and architects alike have used their innovation to create more and more products as design pieces.
According to Albert Scaglione, CEO of Park West Gallery, “Designers should never be forced to sacrifice good design for function, and those who do so are selling themselves short.” This is especially true in home automation, as there are plenty of functional, yet aesthetically pleasing solutions now available in smart home technology.
