HOME >> Kitchen Design >> Using Modern / Smart Technology in Kitchens

As modern technology advances, it is only fitting that our kitchens and the technology in them do as well. There are many modern kitchen ideas that incorporate all these new technologies. Smart refrigerators can show you what is inside without opening the door, motion sensitive faucets turn on or off instead of turning knobs. There are many ways to utilise smart appliance technology in the kitchen. Not only do these items make our day to day life easier, they can also help us out in ways we never imagined.

Modern kitchens now include a wealth of technology to help make life simpler.

Using Modern Technology in Kitchens

Here are just a few ways modern technology is changing our kitchens – and homes:

Outlets that rise out of the countertop

Outlets that rise out of the countertop. Not only does it reduce clutter, it also ensures that outlets are easy to reach and to use.

Vacuum compartments under the kickplate of the cabinets

Vacuum compartments under the kickplate of the cabinets. Now you can simply sweep the dirt into the central vacuum. No more needing a dustpan to pick up the dirt!

Motion sensitive kitchen faucets

Motion sensitive kitchen faucets. Some faucets can turn on with a simple motion in front of them, others can be activated with a single touch. No longer dealing with dirty, food covered faucets is one step further towards a cleaner home.

Touch screen smart fridge

Touch screen / smart fridges that can contain your whole communication hub for the family. They can be used to check on what food is inside (saving electrical costs by reducing the need for the door being open). They can also tell you what is inside your fridge while you’re out getting groceries so you can double check what else you need to grab. Touch screens are connected to the internet so you can quickly search for and display recipes.

Smart lighting that allows you to set and forget the lights in the kitchen

Smart lighting that allows you to set and forget the lights in the kitchen. Have your dining table lights dim or change colour to set the mood for dinner. Or simply to help it appear as if someone is home while you are away on vacation.

Coffee makers programmed to start when you need them to

Coffee makers programmed to start when you need them to and have that first cup of coffee ready for when you reach the kitchen.

Smart slow cooker

Enable your slow cooker remotely so that you know your dinner will be complete and hot for your family’s arrival home. Monitor temperature and the length of time it needs to be on from anywhere that has an internet connection!

Stovetops that are interactive

Interactive / Smart Stoves. Now you can access recipes, social media accounts and more from the top of your stove. Forget getting out a paper recipe card and getting it covered in food, now with a few quick taps you can have everything you need right at your fingertips.
