How Home Improvement Is Benefiting From Modern Technology

Thanks to current technological trends, home improvement is becoming much simpler than before.  Whereas collecting rent, applying wallpaper and home security may used to be archaic, today’s inventions have heightened home owner interest. There are many simple tasks around the home that could be taken care of by modern technology.  You could free up your life to do more enjoyable things and save yourself a lot of time and hassle.  Options like gate automation can make your life so much easier and really improve the functionality of your home.  Check out these areas where designs, safety and tenant care is benefiting from technology.

Digitized Wallpaper

Computer wallpaper has existed for many years, but the reach of our computers has expanded to make digital wallpaper available. Now, instead of merely having a display on your computer desktop, you can have a display on your walls, representing either fabulous works of art or first-rate patterns. Digital wallpaper consists of computer graphical images that can be projected or otherwise displayed outside the computer’s internal environment.

Rental Payments And Due Diligence

For anyone who is renting, or considering the rental of a property, this is a breakdown of the rules as they apply in most cases. These rules, however, do not apply to anyone that is renting a room inside a private residence. This article is a basic guide and is not a substitution for a legal or professional advice.

Home Security

Statistics for break-ins are readily available. Of the many numbers one can find are those for how most of these break-ins occur. Not surprisingly, the most popular entry is through a door. Whether it’s by kicking or simply slamming against a door until the jamb has been overcome, many burglars are well aware that getting into most homes is not difficult.  This same technology stretches into home based businesses, too.

What would happen to your business if an intruder were to gain access to your office buildings in the middle of the night? What would they be able to find about your company? How secure is your business? No one likes to think they are vulnerable to such circumstances but the possibilities of them happening are very real. Controlling access to your business is the key to protecting against theft and deliberate sabotage.

Kitchen Renovation

Allied Marble, serving the Puget Sound area for nearly 40 years, stays competitive in offering their marble, granite and limestone countertops – to name a few – yet also adheres to technology quite efficiently, too.  Installation for residential and commercial customers is done seamlessly, charging by the lineal foot instead of single slab.

For many people, the kitchen is seen as the heartbeat of the home. It is where the food that is enjoyed by friends, family and loved ones is prepared. It is also where people gather to chat and catch up on the day either as the meal is being put together or as bread is being broken at the dinner table. Kitchens can also serve as the place where young children complete homework assignments under the watchful eyes of the parent.  Since their inception, Allied Marble thoroughly understands what fellowship kitchens bring, yet continuously improve their product delivery to include technology where applicable.


Renovating a home can be a smart investment for a homeowner. There are so many benefits that come along with updating a home, and one of the newer types of renovations involves having technology evolve within construction plans.

    Hi Dave, these technological advents are really great. I liked the concept of digitized wallpapers the most. I can just imagine the beauty your house would exhibit once adorned with digitized wallpapers. I can’t limit myself to any particular design, digitizing will give it the entire universe to choose from.

    Technology has already played a huge part in improving security in home renovation and business properties for many years. Aesthetics are in many ways secondary benefits. personally I would find digital wallpaper a bit confusing. In an ever changing world we need some things to remain constant for our sanity!

    Agreed, home renovation in general is becoming more streamlined, less expensive and better all around for a homeowner. We do home renovation and within the past few years, things have been changing quite a bit, and for the better! Home security has been a need for a lot of our clients probably due to people stealing due to the bad economy.

    Good post. Thanks!

Combined with this you can add state of the art window films to the glass to increase energy efficient and improve the aesthetics of Homes with a lot of Glass or where privacy is needed. Keep up the good work Dave.

    Hmm great post but with regards to home security I think we will be downgrading. Crime is on the increase despite what the politicians say. We have hard 2 home intrusions in as many weeks in our street. I really do not think it will be long before we have low tech bars on the windows!

    Innovation has recently had massive impact in enhancing security in home remodel and business lands for numerous years. Feel are from various perspectives optional profits. Directly I might find computerized wallpaper a touch confounding. In a regularly adapting planet we require a few things to remain consistent for our rational soundness.

    Great ideas and tips, Dave. People are becoming more and more familiar with technology and they even expect certain features in a home nowadays. So if your home can offer things that other homes don\’t, it will appeal to many more when you put it on the market. And even if you don’t intend to sell it, new technological features can make your life easier in certain ways. Nice tips.

    It still really amaze me on how technology advancement can make our life easier and more comfortable. Based on your article, computer now can create digitized wallpapers which I believe is easier to put up than a regular wallpaper. Through science, life is more challenging than ever and we people tend to create things that we just imagined before. Everything now is easy even house renovation now can be done easily through the help of technology. These things are so cool and amazing.

    These are just few of the benefits we get from modern technology, hassle free, but before you do some home renovations there are still a lot of things to consider, most specially the budget that you will be having, does it fit to what you want including the installation of modern technology? But if it fits then, everything will go smoothly. Thanks for sharing. I had a great time reading.

    I liked the idea of a digitized wallpaper. Instead of using picture frames which are static, you can project different images on white walls and have an amazing effect.

    There are lots of visual tricks you can use with light to make a room appear larger, like when you’re painting. Choose a light colour for the walls, but instead of going for a contrast, select the same colour in a quarter or half strength for the trims and doors. That way they’ll blend together and make the room feel a lot more spacious.
