Building your Own Smart Home

Are you building a luxury dream house? Are you working with an architect to put together the perfect plans and design? Are you poring over plans with your builder and consulting with teams of contractors to build you the home you have only dreamed about?

Or do your goals revolve around a smaller project? Are you doing some home improvement or just want your digital experience to be more appealing? Have you yet joined the 21st Century?

When planning a new design for a home you begin with sitting down to go through all the basics – The number of windows in a room, where the door is located, what the floors will look like… but have you ever thought about how you are going to actually live in the space you create?

The number of times that clients approach us and do not realise that all the boxes under the TV tucked way back in the corner do not have to be there. From the digital cable box (whether Sky +HD or Virgin +) and the Apple TV or Roku, to the Blu-Ray Player or your Wii – None of that stuff needs to be on show. We can get rid of that clutter and simplify how you interact with those boxes. How would you like to control all those devices from one remote control? These days the remote control is actually your Tablet with an Apple iPad or Android device. Sound extraordinary? Not for us. We know the secret – it lies in creating a functional environment that will service a specific set of needs.

But whether you are designing a new home, expanding your dream, or simply integrating a small home improvement project to impress your friends, take the time to think about how you will use it… and of course, where your things will go.
