Luxury home designs go high-tech

Luxury home design is trending “smart.”

Big-screen televisions roll up vertically and hide in a piece of furniture. Intelligent toilets greet visitors with classical music, while automatically opening the lid. Smart ovens can be controlled from anywhere in the world.

All these examples illustrate some of the latest smart home automation innovations available for ultra-efficient, comfortable luxury living environments while reducing energy costs.

“Technology is proliferating into every aspect of our lives and all products,” Sun West Custom Homes owner Dan Coletti said. “It’s starting to go into the simplest things.”

A luxury builder in Vegas for more than 30 years, Coletti has seen technology evolve and change significantly as it advances into every room of the home.

Home Designs Changes in 2022 – What Is Out of Style

Home design trends come and go. Styles that are all the rage eventually get overused and become outdated. We all know that sensation of style fatigue — you feel like you’ve seen the same thing over and over, and just want something new and fresh.

As we head into 2022, there are several trends that we’ll be saying goodbye to. In some cases, these trends have been slowly fading away for years because they’re impractical or difficult to maintain, while in other instances, the COVID-19 pandemic caused homeowners to embrace other options.

Mom designs her entire home like the 1970s

A mom in Chicago has turned her house into a tribute to the 1970s. 

Corbyn Hanson Wittig, 51, moved into the four-bedroom home with her three kids and her husband last year. She told SWNS that some of the items that had been left behind by a previous owner inspired her to renovate the entire house into the 1970s theme

In the process of renovating, Wittig said she and her family have opted to only use secondhand items.

“It feels like the right time to find alternatives to buying new due to climate change, so we turned to secondhand first,” Wittig told SWNS. “If you’re paying the same or less, why would you go and buy a bin from Target when you could get the same or cheaper vintage?”
