Living in a luxurious home today means living in a “smart” home. In fact, according to a recent story in the Wall Street Journal, 90% of today’s luxury home buyers won’t even consider purchasing a home that isn’t tech-friendly. Being so close to Silicon Valley, Bay Area home owners have the upper hand when it comes to the latest innovations in smart homes. We’ve been upgrading our homes with the latest tech devices on the market for some time now. This trend to personalize a home through technology spiked a few years back on a national level.
For those who live to entertain, a luxury and smart kitchen is a must. Here are some “smart” suggestions for your kitchen:
Think smart ovens, refrigerators, thermostats, and everything in between. New this year, the “Chef Collection” suite of kitchen appliances from Samsung which includes the Chef Collection 4-Door Refrigerator. A Triple Cooling System creates three separate airflows in the refrigerator and freezer sections for optimal humidity control. This system also allows the temperature of the bottom right compartment to be adjusted to fit your needs, whether you’re freezing fish or chilling Chardonnay.
Then there’s Samsung’s “game changer,” a dishwasher featuring a sleek, stainless steel finish and reinvented washing mechanics. This entirely new approach to cleaning is called a “WaterWall.” Instead of a revolving circle of jets, WaterWall uses a linear wall of water which sweeps back and forth during the wash cycle.
The Chef Collection Electric Slide-In Range has the ability to simultaneously cook two different dishes at two different temperatures, offering cooks greater oven control, more precise temperature regulation, and better overall ease of use. There’s also a matching over-the-range Chef Collection microwave.
Then there’s the wine cellar. A luxury wine cellar used to consist of one climate-controlled room. Now, some are much more sophisticated, with multiple climate settings, built-in coolers and fridges and iPad-control systems.
