Owning a home can be daunting at first, especially where finances are concerned. Should you buy top-of-the-line or mid-price paint or floor coverings or appliances? LED light bulbs or cheaper incandescent? Are double-paned windows worth the extra cost? The answers to these and other questions are different, depending on your home’s location, age, sun exposure, and other factors. Your best advisers may be your neighbors. If your home was built by the same company and at the same time as theirs, you can learn a lot from their experience.
With all the futuristic, smart gadgets and devices appearing everywhere, can the humble kitchen remain behind? Manufacturers are upgrading their appliances to make it easy and fun to cook (and clean!). In future, if you’re tired and want to have a home cooked meal, you may be able to do it through voice commands relayed over the home hub. Kitchen appliances of the future would be different, such as cordless appliances, which would be a big boon for apartment dwellers, where the kitchen size is tiny. The appliances won’t be very drastically different, but their functionality and connectivity would improve.
We all need our tech, machines and gadgets to survive in the modern world. All of us need home appliances to help us wash, dry and cook for us and our families. At what cost though?
The washing machine has evolved with the times. A top load washing machine was one of the most utilized commodities in the household for decades. The old power horse would thoroughly clean and rinse a cloth which was then taken out and left to dry. Later a remodelled version of the washing machine came along- the front loading type. Energy efficient and water saving, this new machine came stacked with a dryer. Needless to say consumers quickly replaced the top with the front load and today it is so popular enough that soon the top loading version would be out of manufacturing.
