Buying Home Renovation Tech: 3 Things To Know

Upgrade IQ: Get Quality Equipment For The Right Price

Want a high tech home? If it’s time to upgrade, you need to know what to buy – and where to buy it.

Trend #1: Speakers

It’s not just those trendy smart speakers like Alexa or Cortana that are all over the news. Rather, music fans today are more committed to high quality sound that ever before and they don’t need wires to get it. In fact, going wireless is a high priority, which is why the Rocketfish Wireless Rear Speaker Kit is so popular – it boasts a 100 foot range, so you can wander away with your phone without worries.

If the Rocketfish isn’t for you, your best bet is to check out authorized electronics dealers like A-I Consolidated. These dealers simplify the sales chain so you pay less for high quality products. You’re also more likely to find professional sound equipment like guitar speakers and adapters for less than traditional in-home products by sourcing your electronics through an electronics dealer and not a department store.

Trend #2: Toilets

No one likes to clean – and buying cleaning supplies isn’t especially popular either. So what if you could cut both steps out of the equation with a thoroughly modern appliance?

Self-cleaning toilets are a leading home renovation trend, and they rely on electrolyzed water to eliminate traditional toilet scrubbing. One of the most popular models, Toto’s Neorest 750H toilet, also primes the toilet with a mist to minimize waste adherence before each use.

Of course, this kind of technology won’t come cheap (think several thousand dollars for a toilet), so for the time being, you’ll just have to shop smarter for your toilet cleaning products. If you stock up on cleaning products at Target or Walmart rather than buying them at the hardware store, you’ll be able to save up for that toilet in no time.

Trend #3: Outdoor Kitchens

Cooking indoor on a beautiful summer day is no fun – not when you could be enjoying your back patio. That’s why an increasing number of homeowners are installing outdoor kitchens to go with backyard pools, hot tubs, and playscapes.

Outdoor kitchens take the traditional grill and patio table to the next level, equipping your backyard with a refrigeration unit, counter space, and additional cook surfaces beyond the grill. These kitchens are also perfect for those who want to entertain without being separated from their guests. Just hand your guest some cocktails and get to work.

Outdoor kitchens are, unfortunately, more expensive than a self-cleaning toilet, but they’re sure to get a lot of use. For slightly better pricing, let your contractor buy the materials – most have a deal with suppliers for bulk purchasing, and you just can’t get deals like that at Lowe’s or Home Depot.

Trendy home renovations are expensive, but they’re meant to make our lives better and richer in any number of ways. Whether they’re bringing us closer to friends and family through home entertaining or allowing homeowners to spend less time cleaning and more time bonding, renovations aren’t always about the money or the gadgets. They’re about changing our lives for the better.
