Due to the increasing popularity of smart homes, many companies have been able to advance the technology necessary to bring affordably priced smart home products to the market.
People are investing in smart home products every day. Whether it’s an automatic coffee maker, a thermostat, or an entire home security system, many families are making their homes a little bit smarter, and a lot more convenient.
Unfortunately, as with most things, a smart home has its advantages and disadvantages. We hope that this post will help you determine whether a smart home is something you’d like to invest in, or not.

Advantages

Adding Convenience to your Daily Life –
When you convert your home into a smart home, you’ll have all of your products programmed to your specific needs. Additionally being able to control your home, no matter where you are, can be extremely beneficial.

Customization –
There are many smart products on the market right now and you certainly don’t need to buy all of them at once. As the consumer it’s up to you to decide which product you want most, determine if you like it, and then add on to your collection of smart home products as you go.

A good product to start with would be a thermostat or home security system if you’re in the market for either of those.

Security –
Smart home security systems allow you to view your home no matter where you are. You can have cameras installed, motion detectors, locks, etc, and you will be notified immediately if something is out of the ordinary. Many of these systems will even let you know of any unexpected temperature changes so that you’re alerted if there is a possible fire.

Ease of Use –
Almost all smart home products can be installed without much hassle, many of them don’t even require you to bring someone into your home. Additionally if you’re already someone who’s tech savvy, learning how to use most of these products is a breeze.

Save Money and the Environment –
Smart homes feature products like thermostats, air conditioners, and lighting. Having the ability to put these things on a timer, or turn them on and off when you’re away from home will likely help you save money on your electricity bills. Many of these products allow you to track your energy usage and expenditures.

Resale –
Many smart home products can be moved with you from home to home, but if

Disadvantages

Cost –
Most families are able to purchase smart home products, but that doesn’t mean it won’t leave a dent in your wallet. You can purchase the products one at a time and it won’t seem like too much, $50 here, $300 there, but by the time you have the smart home system you want, you will likely have spent a larger sum than you would have if you had purchased non-smart products.

Slight Learning Curve –
I know I stated in the advantages that most smart home systems are actually very easy to use, but at the same time there is still somewhat of a learning curve for most people. For anyone already immersed in technology, converting your smart home will be a breeze, but for anyone not so tech savvy, it may make for a lot of time spent reading manuals.
If you think you might have trouble learning how to use a smart home device, the answer may be simple. Ask for help! Asking someone to show you how to run your smart home can far less confusing than trying to make heads or tails of an instruction manual.

Reliability –
A smart home will be extremely reliant on your internet connection. If your connection drops you’ll be left with a lot of smart products that won’t work. Additionally, wireless signals can possibly be interrupted by other electronics in your home and cause some of your smart products to function slowly or not at all.

There are plenty of pros and cons to consider when deciding whether you’d like to convert your home into a smart home. Smart homes aren’t for everyone. They can help bring down your electricity bills, simplify your daily tasks, and help to give you a feeling of security. But for some people smart home product will simply turn into an economic burden. It’s ultimately up to you to decide which category you fall into.

The key to good home design rests within 4 main design elements; entertaining, de-stressing, storing, and flexible living. Rather than thinking about how you’d like your home to look, you should consider how you’d like your home to live. So, before you start thinking about what kind of countertops you’d like in your kitchen or what paint you’d like to use in each room, you should start designing your home from a livability standpoint.

Here is an overview of the top 4 design elements that we use to help design your home.

Entertaining

Entertainment areas allow you to effortlessly carry on conversations throughout multiple spaces in your home. Entertainment areas in your home could include the following; a formal room for entertaining, an informal living space, outdoor ‘rooms’ and patios, kitchens with a center island (the center island encourages guest to gather around the snacks), media rooms, and game rooms.

De-stressing

If you need help alleviating some of the stress from your daily life, you may want to consider building a home with plenty of de-stressing spaces. These spaces could include the following; a private master suite, a walk-in shower or whirlpool, a porch, a crafting room, split vanities, mud rooms, and a drop zone to place keys, backpacks, briefcases, and other items.

Storing

Finding enough storage space in your home should never be a problem. A well designed home will have multiple areas in which you can store items and organize your life. Some of the main storage areas that can be built into a home are; rear foyer storage, more space in the garage, over-sized bedroom closets, a walk-in pantry, linen closets, and additional areas in the basement or upper level.

To learn more about building a home with the proper storage spaces, take a look at our previous post ‘Tips and Tricks for Building and Designing a New Home: Home Storage’. In that post you will be given tips on how to design a home with plenty of storage space as well as the benefits of doing so.

Flexible Living

Flexible living areas in a home are necessary if you’re planning on staying in your home for longer than 15 years. Children grow up, move out (and back in), parents stay to visit, a family member may need to come stay for an extended period of time, and in general, life happens. Building a flexible home ensures that you’re ready for just about anything. That office may seem like a great idea now, but in the future you may regret not adding a closet and window so that it can easily be converted into a bedroom.

 

Nilson Homes has made it easier to design a home with livability in mind. Designing a home can be very intimidating as it can be hard to visualize the finished home and how it will live. We’ve created a livability quiz that will help you determine which of the 4 main design elements are most important to you and your family.

Iris

More and more people are converting their home into a ‘smart home’. With a smart home you have the ability to control many of your homes most important settings right from your phone. Whether it’s for security or comfort purposes, converting your home into a smart home can be simple with Iris by Lowes.

The Iris home security system has 3 standard kits for you to choose from, or you can buy a hub and build your security system yourself. Whichever route you decide to go, you have the ability to add more products to your system as your needs change.

Unlike other home security systems, Iris doesn’t only secure your home, it also has the ability to add other smart features to you home. Your iris system could include video cameras, door locks, motion sensors, door/window/cabinet sensors, a smart thermostat, and a smart plug.

With Iris you can choose to simply buy the product and manage your home security through your smart phone or tablet, or you can purchase the premium membership plan and have the Iris team monitor your home for you. The basic plan includes basic control of your devices as well as email, text, or voice call alerts to the account holder if the alarm is triggered.

The three starter kits that Iris features are the Safe and Secure Kit, Comfort and Control Kit, and the Smart Kit. The Safe and Secure kit is $179 and includes the Iris hub, 2 contact sensors, motion sensors, a keypad, and a “Monitored by Iris” window decal. The Comfort and Control Kit includes the Iris hub, a smart plug, and the smart thermostat and window decal. The Iris Smart Kit is only $200 and it comes with everything; the Iris hub, 3 contact sensors, motion sensors, keypad, smart plug, smart thermostat, range extender and window decal.

Iris’ premium membership is $9.99 a month (first two months free), and gives you advanced control of your devices, email text or voice call alerts to up to 20 contacts if the alarm is triggered, extended video camera live streaming, recording and storage, voice control through the mobile app, home modes setting across all of your devices, and Iris Magic for configuring rules across multiple Iris devices.

With Iris you have the ability to control the temperature of your home through your mobile device. You’ll have the ability to lower the temperature when you’re leaving the house and turn it back up before you get back home.

With the smart plug you’ll have the ability to remotely power any electrical-based appliances on and off. If you’ve ever used a space heater you know just how helpful this feature can be. Now if you’re worried that you left something on before leaving the home you can simply access the device on your smart phone to double check.

With Iris, you’ll also have the ability to see, right on Iris’ app, how much energy you’re using! Now you can get an idea of what your bill is going to be before the end of the month rolls around.

Iris’ infrared motion sensors will alert you to any unexpected movement. The window, cabinet, and door sensors will send alerts to your phone if they are opened. If your child will be getting home before you, now you can rest assured that they arrived safely without them even needing to call you.

The smart lock allows you to remotely lock and unlock your doors for any visitors. You no longer need to give the babysitter or dog walker a key to your home. You can simply schedule a time for the babysitter or dog walker to have access to your home by giving them special PIN codes that will only work on specific dates at specific times.

One of the best features of this product, is that you don’t need to hire someone to come into your home to install it, you just do it yourself! For the most part, it’s as easy as putting in the batteries and placing the Iris product where you need it. The requirements for a smart home are that you have a broadband internet connection, an open port on your router, and an open electrical outlet near your router.

So you’ve decided to build a new home – now what? Building a new home can be overwhelming, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. A great first step when designing a new home, is to download our free resource guide. Our guide has all kinds of great tips to help guide you in the right direction. Click here to download this handy planning guide.

The following list gives you six essential tips for designing a bathroom that is perfect for you and your family;

Tip 1: Vanities – Make your bathroom perfect by ensuring the height of your vanity is adjusted for the people using it. Mom and dad may need a higher vanity in their bathroom, generally between 34 and 42 inches, but if the kids don’t have their own bathroom, you may want to consider having multiple vanities set at different heights.

Tip 2: Vertical Storage – If the space below the sink just doesn’t cut it, consider going up. The space above the mirror is often a great place to install cabinetry or shelving for additional storage space. Storage space above the vanity isn’t only practical, it can also break up the lines and add visual interest to the room.

Tip 3: Self-Standing Additions – Self standing additions can help to add some much needed space at a low cost. Visit second hand stores or thrift shops to find unique pieces to use as added storage. Use an old magazine rack to hold towels or convert an old crib for use as a corner piece for display and storage. Click here to see examples.

Tip 4: Storage – Use hooks and bars for towels and robes and other not so obvious items like hair dryers and curling irons. Attach hooks to the side of the vanity or along the walls to increase your storage and make items easily accessible.

Tip 5: Display Areas – Display areas in a bathroom can help add splashes of color, tie the theme together, or add space to put some of those knickknacks you can’t otherwise find space for. Create lovely display areas by installing recessed shelves or shadowboxes. Display your favorite bath salts, lotions and other potions as well as framed artwork or inspirational messages.

Tip 6: Maximize the Space – Use doors and walls to maximize the space in a small area. Hooks on the back of the door make it easy to hang a travel case for guests or even a wet towel. Consider adding little luxuries like a heated towel rack. Don’t forget to put a wall mirror on the wall opposite the vanity to increase the illusion of size in the room.

For more ideas on how to maximize the space in any room or for other great building ideas download our free planning guide. It’s a great resource to help you through the ups and downs of home building. Avoid costly mistakes and learn when it’s good to splurge and when to hold back. Other tips include how to choose the right lot and how to choose the right plan for that lot.

Building a new custom home can quickly become a pricey endeavor. When you start the project you know that the money spent will all be worth it when you can walk into your new kitchen, bathroom, home theater, etc. Unfortunately during the process it can be hard not to try to lower the cost wherever you can. The end result is that you may start to cut corners.

Many homeowners have discovered that purchasing products like light fixtures and since from a retail store can cut down on some of the costs. Builders and contractors don’t buy in bulk like the retail store, and because of that, are unable to match the prices of stores like Lowes or Home Depot.

In addition, builders often do not have as large of a selection of the chain store and are usually unable to show the homeowners samples of the finishes. Because of this, many homeowners go to retail stores to shop around for some of these fixtures. The problem is however, that when shopping in a retail store you’re more likely to pick a product based mostly on its looks. On the other hand, when you buy a product from a contractor, you’re buying a product that the builder has had past experience with, a product they know works. Builders are able to help you choose a product that will not only look nice, but it will last longer and perform better in the long run.

You may be able to save money by buying from a chain store and delivering it yourself, but doing so can interfere with the job schedule. Late delivery of a fixture, for example, can stall other processes and prolong the renovation, thereby increasing the time you are out of your home.

The lower costs at retail stores may be a very appealing idea, but it will only be cheaper initially, not in the long run. If you let the contractor buy the product for you, it will often turn out to be more cost effective in the future.

Most builder-contractors have been in the business for a while, and know which products work, and which products don’t. Often the products bought by the contractor will last longer because they will make their purchases based on quality and durability rather than appearance.

Buying from the builder can also save you time and potential headaches during your renovation. The more variable you add to a renovation, the more likely something will go awry. Order a product your self can result in late shipments and delay the entire process. The contractor, on the other hand, is able to order the fixture and schedule the delivery.

If you have a strong preference for buying a particular brand or model that your contractors supplier does not have, be sure to talk with the contractor. Usually something can be worked out, and if there is anything wrong with the brand or model you want that the contractor knows of they will be able to let you know before you sink your money into the product.
