What's Next

“The infusion of technology in design is here and growing. Homes know your needs before you do, thanks to SMART design technology. It’s beyond automatic lights, it’s about the total package of scent, touch, and feel. From a temperature testing sanitized entryway or mudroom to voice-controlled walls that move, change colors, and more. Intimate spaces like bathrooms being lusciously designed as additional living spaces.”
