LUXURY REDEFINED Pairing Elegance with Today’s Technology

June 1, 2018 | By Carlos Garcia

Luxury living means enjoying a unique home environment that supports a comfortable lifestyle with custom conveniences and elegant design. Today’s luxury homes are as smart as they are beautiful. Today’s luxury homeowners want sophisticated systems that help manage their households while providing indulgent touches that epitomize affluent living at its finest. Here are ways luxury and technology combine to create wonderful results.

  • Custom shower programs can set air and water temperature, towel heat, ventilation and water volume. To create your own washroom sanctuary, visit your local kitchen and bath showroom or speak with your interior designer.

  • Window treatments can be mechanized to automatically close or open based on privacy or energy efficiency goals. Smartphones can act as a remote control to open garage doors, turn on lights, or set the temperature. New thermostats are more intuitive. Ask your interior designer how to add this technology.

  • Security systems can allow monitoring of interior spaces and exterior perimeters and can be activated and viewed via your smartphone and/or tablet. Talk with your security company about today’s available options.

  • Heated driveway systems are the ultimate luxury for those who live in a four-season locale. A touch of a button helps melt snow and ice, eliminating icy ground conditions and the need for snow removal. Speak with your local concrete specialist or paving contractor about options and costs.
