Make That Old House Super High Tech

Renovating any house can be a bittersweet experience. Not only are you finally getting the house of your dreams by almost creating it from the ground up, but you have a lot of work to get done. Even if you’re hiring contractors, renovations can still take a lot of time, planning and decisions. And when you buy an old house, that can all get kicked up a notch. With trying to restore old features, make your space bigger and add your own spin on things, it can be a complex process. But, one that can still be a lot of fun, especially if you’re thinking about making the interior super high tech.


Touch-Screen Tech

One of the coolest home additions that you could think of for your modern interior is touch screen technology. Yes, we’ve already got this everywhere from our phones to our televisions, but what about in your kitchen or bathroom? Because that can happen. Not only can you get a touch screen electric hob for cooking on (that’s also not on display but just apart of the countertop), you can get a backsplash display screen for your kitchen where you can watch TV and even touch activation bathroom tabs.

Innovative Utilities

If you’re looking at combining your high tech home with the energy efficiency, then you’re going to want to use the most innovative utilities available to you. Not only do you have the option of using solar power in your home right now, but you’ve also got the idea of generating solar hot water or even using wind turbines to generate your electricity. So not only can you be ultra modern, you can be self-sufficient with energy too.


When you love music, you want to get on board with the coolest surround sound option available. And for now, that’s Sonos. This cool product can give you access to your music in the shower, while your cooking and in the middle of a party. When you’re building a modern home, you’re going to want to make sure that you have the latest gadgets at the touch of a button, and with Sonos, that certainly happens.

Smart Home Hub

And while we’re on the idea of cool home gadgets, when you’re renovating an old home into something ultra modern, you’re going to want to install a smart home hub. Not only can you control your lighting in different rooms from one central control, you can do the same with individual heating, as well as do things like turn your oven on, open your garage doors, close your blinds and even activate your music. For the best in leading tech, a smart home hub has to be yours.

Voice Activated Assistant

If you always need a helping hand with your memos and reminders, appointments and diary dates, but you’re useless at remembering where you wrote things down, a voice-activated assistant could be the perfection solution for you. In the form of a small piece of tech, these things are a huge savior when it comes to digitally organizing your life.
