The kitchen and bathroom are clearly important to homebuyers, as these areas get some of the most use. They are also, however, overlooked when builders begin smart home integration.
“More automation is happening and becoming a standard within the home. More people are expecting this,” says Mike Feigin at Design Tech Homes. The builder offers home automation as a standard and says other builders should too.
For multifamily builders looking to target Millennials, connected kitchen and bath tech is a good option to stand out. This generation is always looking for the latest technology, and right now, kitchen and bath tech is it.

Connecting in the Kitchen
According to Icontrol Network’s 2015 State of the Smart Home Survey, 41 percent of Americans are interested in the benefits of a connected kitchen.
“The kitchen and family room have the biggest opportunity to become connected,” says Feigin.
Smart ovens and fridges and connected scales and countertops are just some of the options to bring luxury and simplicity into the kitchen.
