The living room. Perhaps it is the room of your home where you spend the most time. You sit there with family on birthdays and parties, and you completely unwind there after work and on weekends. Maybe you've even secretly dozed off on the sofa in your living room. Living rooms are never the same. Therefore, it is very important for you to style and decorate your living room in the right way. Smart home appliances, of course, should not be left out in the decoration of your smart living room. Smartblinds explains which smart home devices are the best options to add to your smart living room.
The living room is the central point in your home. You gather there with your friends, family or just socialise with your partner, family or even alone. Where your living room is the central room in your home, the smart hub is the central point of your smart home. Pretty convenient that this device can also be found in the central room of your home. But which hub suits your smart home best?
In the living room, you have several options for adding a hub. For example, you have a smart hub with display, the Google Nest Hub, or you have smart hubs in the form of a smart speaker such as the Google Nest Mini or the Apple HomePod Mini. These compact smart speakers can also serve as a hub. If you want an overview of your smart home, then opt for Google's Nest Hub. In it, you can view your smart home, set scenes and apply automations. Are you fine with doing this on your smartphone, and would like a compact speaker that does all your commands? Then opt for the voice-controllable Google Nest Mini or the Apple HomePod mini.
Lighting. It is the mood creator in a room. Whether it is warm light, dimmed light or coloured light. Lighting creates atmosphere in every room. So too in the living room. Nowadays, you have different types of smart lighting, which can display as many as millions of colours and can be controlled via your smartphone and voice. What kind of lighting you add in your smart living room depends on your taste. Will you go for spotlights, screw a smart bulb into your current wall lamp or try something new and go for a smart ceiling lamp? The choice is entirely up to you. In any case, know that smart lighting is incredibly sustainable and energy-saving, as well as easy to use.
As in the rest of your home, it is indispensable. Window decoration. The living room is a place where you can isolate yourself from the outside world.
