While there is certainly something aesthetically appealing in a well-designed smartphone or laptop, beauty is not usually the first word that comes to most people’s minds when they think about tech.
However, tech can assist you in beautifying your environment, and this goes far beyond the ability to look at other people’s home designs online. Whether allowing you to easily make changes to your environment, arrange for subscriptions of home decor, or simply inspire you, tech offers great tools for making your home more attractive.
Smart Home Decorating
There are many decorating possibilities with smart home lighting. You can vary the types of light you use at different times of day based on how your mood changes from morning to evening. While smart home technology has not yet reached the point that makes it possible to change the wallpaper or furniture in your home at the push of a button, these lights can also give the illusion that your walls are changing color.
If you’re thinking of changing how the space around you looks, there are apps that can help you. Among other things, some of these apps bridge the gap between pictures you may see online or in a magazine and helping you visualize exactly how certain items will look in a room in your home.
There are apps that you upload a photo of your room for decorating tips and artificial intelligence that can guide your choices. Make paint swatches a thing of the past; instead, get an app that uses augmented reality to help you check colors you’re considering.
Subscriptions Boxes Online
Accents such as candles or plants can brighten a room or change its mood. With subscription boxes that you sign up for online, you can get a regular supply of these or other items to keep the look of your home changing in small ways. Do some browsing online to see what your options are.
You can even get subscription boxes that help you create items yourself, such as woodworking or collage projects. If you don’t have the green thumb or patience to sustain plants, consider a subscription to get sustainably sourced flowers. They can be shipped straight to you from the farm, and a weekly flower delivery ensures that you always have a fresh bouquet.
If you are upgrading your home with smart devices, take heart as it’s not all clunky tech and wires anymore. In fact, these days, you can integrate high tech into the design of your home. Some of this involves getting devices that multitask, such as lights that can also serve as alarm clocks or alerts you to texts.
From security cameras to speakers and more, the design is increasingly meeting tech to create objects that are both useful and eye-catching. Keep in mind as well that products are shrinking in size as they are getting more powerful, so if what you need is not beautiful, it can at least be discreet. Another option is attractive cabinets and other pieces of furniture designed to conceal screens, gaming consoles, and more when they are not in use.
