5 Ways to Future-Proof Your Kitchen


1) Find a digital hub to manage your kitchen

Similar to hubs found in many home entertainment centers, Innit predicts that we'll soon see more and more kitchens with control panels to manage your connected appliances.

2) Apps are an easy upgrade

There are tons of apps that provide step-by-step recipes and video cooking tutorials; however, look for apps that'll allow you to have voice control, such as Chefling and Yes Chef.

3) Make sure your new appliances are Wi-Fi enabled

According to Innit, if your new kitchen appliances can't connect to the internet, they're already outdated. This will only be more true in the foreseeable future as the world moves more and more toward connectivity.

4) Wireless charging countertops are the new quartz

Simple and subtle, wireless countertops are seeing a wave of popularity right now with consumers, and are also a safe bet as an investment as tech companies move away from cords. Also, if this ends up just being a fad, you will still have beautiful counters!

5) Cut the cords

Staying on theme, cutting cords is another safe bet for your kitchen as there are now many wireless appliances that are compatible with smart counter tops. With less cords there are also less accidents, which is especially important in a kitchen!

Again, there's no need to invest in all of these suggestions—stay within your budget. However, if past trends are any indication, you'll likely see ROI from any of these improvements when it's time to sell. Have you adopted any of these tips already?
