When we hear the word "kitchen," the thought and ideas of incredibly delicious food start to pop up in our minds. It doesn’t matter if we are between business meetings, in a class, working out or out in the park with our pet dogs, as soon as someone whispers this word around us, an immediate blurred image of our kitchen starts to display in our memory screens.
We start to think what we had last night and what we will be having for lunch. Will we cook ourselves or shall someone make us our favorite meals? It isn’t wrong to say that of all the rooms present in our homes, the kitchen is the favorite part, and we always want to invest more and more in our kitchens as they are the center of attention.
It is basically a hub of all the activities, creation, taste, gatherings and what not. With the advancements in every department around us, it is also expected that our kitchens will evolve into something more comforting and productive or look on the other side of the picture. If people decide to abandon their agricultural businesses and choose to move to big towns and cities, then we will be left with quite a little space to decorate and renovate our kitchens.
To avoid waiting in long queues in a grocery store, people will try their best to embed technologies and technology operated kitchens in their homes for their absolute ease.If you are like me and already have the latest software on your smartphone, you will be wondering where else technology like this can make your life easier.
It seems that the best place to start is your kitchen! Also, going green is very similar to going smarter, and the two can be joined for efficacy as well as curbing your own carbon footprint.
But how do we go about using technology to our advantage when we are just ordinary workers who cannot afford a smart fridge that orders milk by itself? It is logical that this type of technology takes years to develop and will only be affordable for our children. Luckily there are ways of cooking smarter that will not cost you an arm and a leg.
The future is loaded with all technology; robotics and related electronics and so will our future kitchen will be. A mindful design has been presented on the future kitchen concept which revolves around the concept of more robotics and steel storages in the kitchen. If so, what is a smart kitchen?
"As smart home technology becomes more commonly adopted, it’s easy to incorrectly assume that the bright kitchen is simply a part of that ecosystem—another room in the larger smart home. It’s more than that." says Richard Gunther from Universal Mind.
Different aspects of the kitchen have been placed in the modern group, and everybody is giving thoughts and ideas by taking help from their subconscious to what extent can technology stretch their hands inside our cozy kitchens.
Breaking down the modern kitchen concept into famous articles, here is a short description of every category that can be stepped up in near future.
The pantry of our modern and élite kitchen motivates us to set up a more healthy relationship with the food we are planning to dine on. Instead of hiding them in cold containers in our refrigerators or placing them in a vegetable basket or away from our eyes, it is assumed that we will be keeping them close to our eyes.
Close enough that we can easily see them through because we might be buying transparent containers for them. This will give them a proper and much hygienic storage.
This will help us go economically as well because we will be well aware which food will suffice us and which of the food item is missing from the pantry. We just have to keep the containers under right temperature so that the food doesn’t get spoiled or rotten.
The table in our future kitchen might be able to do magic in ways we haven’t even thought of. The leftover food which is eaten by our dustbins can be consumed by us for following purposes.
The table will have a hanging down camera which will take a snapshot of the leftover food we will be placed under it. It will analyze display all the possible recipes which can be used to remake that leftover. We can also assign it our preferred time in which we want to cook that food. Hence, the table will technically do all the thinking, cleaning and cooking.
Our mind takes us to the place where there will be an élite sink with many options. It will be concerned with the water wastage concerns. Instead of throwing away all the wastewater, we will be provided with options whether its black water, grey water or can be filtered again.
This can help us save the water because instead of disposing of it all away we are making it capable of reuse. It can be reused later in multiple ways and can be filtered by need as well which might undoubtedly be a very environment-friendly step to take.
It will act as a powerful reminder of all the things we will be disposing of. There might be some others that can be reused in some ways instead of throwing them all away. It will all be a debit and credit game depending on what you decide to throw away.
Compact fluorescent light bulbs use 60% less energy and will save you $45 per year. Bonus for your budget, bonus for your carbon footprint! Using energy-efficient equipment can keep you up to 75% on your electric bill, and it is, therefore, vital to start with CFL light bulbs.
You need to turn off lights that are not being used, but fluorescent bulbs can take up to two hours’ worth of electricity to start-up. It is ideal to then use the correct light bulb in the correct way. These lights can rather be left on than switched off and on constantly.
However, you now get technology that allows the lights to turn on by themselves when you enter a room. This is great for saving electricity, and the technology is not too costly. I don’t know if you are aware of this, but lights can really make or break a room and don’t have to be expensive to be stylish as well as functional.
These days you can get a coffee maker that knows what time you wake, and if you have prepped it correctly the night before, it will start brewing and be ready by the time you reach your kitchen. Don’t believe me? Well, check it out on Amazon.
They have a variety of smart coffee makers available. Christmas is coming soon, and this is a great gift that is actually not as expensive as you would think. They also come with recipes, so don’t think coffee is ever just going to be regular again. Furthermore you can enjoy your coffee while relaxing on some papasan chair.
Every time I leave my house I doubt if the iron or stove is off. I have now come into the habit of switching them off at the source. This infuriates my flatmates to no end, but I am paranoid and rather safe than sorry. So recently I read about smart stoves that will even alert you when you have left it on! If you have children at home or animals, keep them safe by using a smart stove.
Certain high-efficiency cookstove will allow you to save electricity and do so much more, like cooking offal or craft projects. The possibilities are endless when cooking with a smart stove as they also give instant heat. No more waiting for the oven to be the right temperature for your baked goods! The temperature will also be better controlled, and cooking sweets and meringues will be a breeze!
This might be a bit of an expensive treat for yourself, but in the long run, it is an investment opportunity.
Have you ever considered a surge protector? Easy to use and extremely affordable, this is the best way to power more devices in a kitchen. They are classy and can keep your appliances from breaking when there is a power surge. This is a genuine safety concern for anyone with children in the house.
So you are out-of-town, and the boss is having dinner at your house? No problem! The latest range of slow cookers can be planned when to start simmering. They are safe to use and quickly controlled even if you are not in your home. They also come in a variety of colors, and if you do not want to display them, they can be easily stored away.
There are so many more products available like smoothie makers and blenders, the sky is the limit when it comes to your fashionable smart kitchen.
Now we will bring to you the nearest future kitchen utensils. From the researchers at Offmat, they introduce Tulèr. Tulèr is an creative look at the future of what a kitchen can be. The concept was spurred on from the idea of what a modern kitchen can and should look like in future homes.
The whole kitchen unit is not only the concept of the motion activated drop-down sink, but it is also the creative and smart technology that can be included in a kitchen for the modern age.
The smart kitchen concept was born from the creative minds of Topic and Marmo Arredo, who were looking to create a kitchen unit that included intellectual and durable capabilities.
The kitchen unit’s top is made of stone but hides the elements elegantly. The drop-down sink correctly is a new concept that has not been introduced in other recent modern designs for a kitchen.
The sink remains at the same level as the counter, unless motioned to drop-down to be used as a sink. The faucet can be turned on and off by the wave of a hand, along with the setting of the sink level. This video will help you to get more pictures about the working system.
The minimalism of such an intelligent design shows the character of the generations today, and for the ones to comes in the future. The design is simple, yet has many complex hidden features.
When placing a smart device on a specific corner of the unit, it automatically charges the device. The wireless charging station is integrated into the design to cut the need for a plug to show on top of the counter surface.
The unit also includes a scale for measuring during recipes that make it easier for modern food lovers to create a dish with ease. Even with the sleek design of the inductors under the stone for cooking, the model continues to evolve.
Even with all the innovative features the Tulèr has to offer, this is just the beginning of what the future of kitchen design can be.
Tipic and Marmo Arredo are approaching the design of the Tulèr with all the modern conveniences that homeowners did not know they needed, but now positively cannot live without. Minimalism stems from current plans that focus on functionality and comfort. New smart kitchens are sleek in look, but give the feature that people in the modern age crave.
Even the added bonus of controlling drawers, the sink, and specific elements remotely is a favorite among new designs.
The future for kitchen design is not just in the look, but it is in the development of intelligence and technology. Design has the power to help the everyday homeowner achieve consistency among meals.
Every oven, stove, and microwave are made with different power strengths, which is why a smart kitchen is paving the way to better food and more durable appliances.
The future may seem unclear, but the smart kitchen concept will only continue to evolve. As phones get sleeker in design, so will stone countertops that are infused with technology that can help you live life in sync with the devices around you.
Whether a smart kitchen keeps you from burning the turkey, or it helps you lead a more efficient life, the innovative kitchen concept of a drop-down sink is only the beginning.
