Top tech trends for homes in 2022

Smart home technology

From what we’ve seen in Winthrop real estate throughout the years, we can safely say that smart homes are not just a passing trend. From charming single-family homes to sprawling luxury properties, we’re seeing smart home technology applied everywhere.

With the rise of advanced home technology, homeowners are now choosing to equip their properties with cutting-edge smart tech to make their lives easier. And buyers are looking at tech as one of their top desired features in a home.

These top tech trends are must-haves for your property in 2022:

Full home integration

The future of the home is in automation. In 2022, we’ll see more homes with AI-driven technology to help people manage their everyday lives Expect a leveling up from the simple home AI assistants we’ve grown accustomed to like Alexa and Siri.

In 2022, we’ll see high-tech home offices

Working from home has changed our lives and our homes significantly. With more and more people choosing to work remotely, there’s now a need for better home offices. Often, these rooms double as classrooms for kids, which make them an incredibly important part of any home.

Home technological innovations can help homeowners achieve that elusive work-life balance. Some key features in a high-tech home office include smart furniture such as an automated desk setup with adjustable stands so homeowners can easily move their desks around with a press of a button, built-in, noise-canceling windows to block out unwanted sound, and a high-speed router installed in the home office.

You might also see home offices equipped with automated coffee machines so there’s no need to go all the way to the kitchen for that midday pick-me-up.

In 2022, we’ll see robots replacing automated appliances

Robot vacuum cleaners, lawnmowers, and other autonomously operated appliances will have an upgrade in 2022. We will see a lot of automated devices that function beyond the usual cleaning and vacuuming. Appliance manufacturers like LG and Trifo are looking into creating robots that can help with cooking, healthcare, home maintenance, and other repetitive chores.

In 2022, we’ll adopt more energy-efficient living

Everyone’s looking for better ways to save money and reduce their carbon footprint. In 2022, expect to see a lot of home automation with more environmentally conscious design and features.

This can come in the form of more cutting-edge automated lighting systems that we see today. Instead of controlling lights through our phones, we may see lighting systems learning homeowners’ patterns and controlling illumination levels based on room conditions. We can also expect better models of washers and dryers focusing on higher efficiency. All will allow homeowners to save on energy costs.
