Demand for smart home features in the kitchen remains solid according to the American Institute of Architects’ “Home Design Trends Study” for the fourth quarter of 2017. They go on to say that this “…isn’t a surprise as more new systems and products are being introduced at a dizzying pace, ensuring accessibility throughout these areas and promoting convenience remain priorities for homeowners.”

Promoting convenience is a key design element in creating a smart kitchen.

Smart Storage A recent Houzz Study found that the majority of households that participated were focused on de-cluttering their counters and wanted to make updates that included cabinet storage and organization features. Popular storage updates include pull out waste or recycling baskets, cookie sheet/tray organizers, revolving corner trays, deep drawer organizers and pull or swing out trays and shelves.

Smart Technology The same Houzz Study of over 1,700 U.S. homeowners found that incorporating new electronics in the kitchen is a key element of the renovation process. Popular categories of smart technology include home assistants, wireless and voice-controlled kitchen appliances.

Other smart appliances that made the Best of KBIS 2018 included Samsung’s Family Hub 3.0 Refrigerator while the GE Profile Wall Oven with Assisted Cook and the Whirlpool Smart Front-Control Range made the 2018 Best of IBS Kitchen Product category. The Whirlpool Smart Over-the-Range Microwave also made the Best Home Technology Product category.

I think we just validated the Houzz Study mentioned earlier, convenience is a key design element in creating a smart kitchen!
