Fort Myers, FL – Making Use of Modern Kitchen Technology To Enhance Your Remodel

It fairly obvious that technological advancements have altered what’s possible, even in your home kitchen. We’ve come a far way from the days of iceboxes and those annoying kitchen timers, so if kitchen remodeling is on your brain, don’t forget to incorporate the high tech factor. At Stone and Tile from Portugal these are a few of our favorite ways to transform your kitchen into a smart kitchen that really does act smart.

It’s all Easier with Google Home or Alexa

Today’s amazing hands-free devices like the Google Home or Alexa, give you the ability to now set multiple timers, quickly find all kinds of amazing recipes, and even have recipes read aloud to you. Cooking is now not just easier, but more fun — just ask your device to play your favorite news station, podcast, or create a Kitchen playlist so you can enjoy all your favorite tunes while you cook.

Charging Stations Save Room and Time

How great would it be to move your phones, tablets, and cameras to a built-in charging station that we’ve hidden in a drawer. This not only frees up your counter space but also ensures your devices all stay fully charged. Nice to keep them out of sight (and, who knows, out of mind…for the kids).

Life is a breeze with Touch-activated faucets

This is by far the most practical and useful of all the kitchen technology out there. With a touch-activated sink faucet, you can easily turn the water on or off with just a touch of your hand, wrist, arm, or elbow. How great for those moments when your hands are dirty and you don’t want to create an even a bigger mess just trying to get clean.

Take advantage of Hidden Screens

Want to have a small television screen or tablets that can help with meal prep and serve as entertainment? You can easily designate a shelving area for this or get really creative by hiding that screen on the inside of a cabinet —  just remember to make sure you plan well for a cable hookup and room for wiring.

Who doesn’t LOVE cool Kitchen appliances

While you might not necessarily need high-tech kitchen appliances, they sure are awesome. If you want to kick kitchen technology up a notch, we recommend opting for a refrigerator with a touchscreen and the capability to stream music, or consider a stove you control with your smartphone, a high tech trashcan you open with the wave of your hand, or that futuristic microwave that customizes its presets based on what you normally use. Always keep in mind though that technology evolves, and these high-tech kitchen appliances may need to be upgraded sooner than their older low-tech counterparts.

Kids may not like it but you will – A device bowl

Well this one is actually low-tech, but it’s for managing high tech. We love the concept of having a big bowl in the center of your kitchen table, so the family has to place their phone in the bowl while eating together. This ensures a tech-free dinner, more lively chats, actual eye contact, and a much-needed break from our addictive technology.

Kitchen technology will help cooking and working in the kitchen become easier — and more enjoyable — so when you think about your kitchen remodel, don’t forget to put in the kitchen technology.
