A regular bedroom doesn’t seem to satisfy some people these days; we want the combination of simplicity, luxury, and technology in our favorite room of the home, the bedroom. This has led many to wonder, “how do I get a high-tech bedroom”?
You can turn your existing bedroom into a high-tech bedroom by including some gadgets that make light control, cleaning, and the microclimate in your bedroom easily controlled, usually through apps that you’ll have to install on your smartphone. However, it is essential that you have a fast internet connection for such a bedroom.
This article will help you understand what a high-tech bedroom is. But, before considering it a high-tech bedroom, you’ll also know what things you should add to your bedroom. Also, you’ll have some high-tech bedroom ideas that you can use to set up your bedroom.
What Is a High Tech Bedroom?
A bedroom is that part of the house that is considered personal, where you retire to at the end of the day. However, a bedroom becomes high-tech when technological features make it more comfortable, easy to fall asleep, set the right mood, and clean.
The bedroom serves as more than a sleeping area. It is also a place of comfort and shows personal touch of its occupants. High tech bedrooms are similar to regular bedrooms; however, they differ in the nature of their features. While regular bedrooms have lights with switches, regular beds, and window blinds, high-tech bedrooms use the internet and technology to augment these features. For example, instead of turning your lights out in a high-tech bedroom by pressing a switch, you do that with your smartphone. You can also roll up your window curtains with your smartphone.
Requirements of a High Tech Bedroom
Before a bedroom can be considered high tech, it should have some features, and they include:
What’s a bedroom without a bed? A high-tech bedroom needs a bed that’s smart and technological. Usually, you have the choice of different bed sizes; however, the bed should have features such as environmental monitoring, which keeps track of the bedroom’s temperature and humidity, among other things; sleep tracking, to record how well you sleep at certain times of the night; app integration, so you can control features with your smartphone; audio features, for white noise and meditation tones playback, as it helps some people sleep faster.
Although these features make a smart bed, all smart beds don’t have all these features. Two or more of these features qualify a bed as smart.
Temperature, humidity, and indoor air quality influence the microclimate of your bedroom. When the temperature is high, you may find it hard to sleep in the summer; however, a low temperature also makes for an uncomfortable night in the winter. Understanding how your body reacts to temperatures and what temperature you have the best sleep in helps you sleep better.
Humidifiers and air conditioners are common microclimate controllers. However, the right ones for a high-tech bedroom should be integrated with a mobile app so that you can easily control them. Also, high-tech air conditioners should have automatic thermostats that switch on and off at the notice of a change in temperature or humidity.
Fast Internet and WI-Fi
You need a fast internet connection for easy integration of your bedroom’s smart features and prompt response to commands. All lighting fixtures, air conditioning systems, alarm clocks, and other systems will be connected to the internet via wi-fi.
A high-tech bedroom is equipped with gadgets that discourage the need to stand to adjust their settings. Instead, you have the technology to make settings changes remotely, powered by a fast internet connection and wi-fi.
Setting the lighting in your bedroom influences the atmosphere in it. Bright lights may stop you from falling asleep on time, and switching them off may cause you to panic in the dark. You can install smart lights that respond to a dimming switch on your smartphone.
Alternatively, if you purchase all your lighting as one set, you may have the ability to set them so that they come on, go off, or dim at certain times of the day. This helps you save money on electricity and eliminates the need to always reach for your phone to adjust your bedroom light’s brightness.
Central control is also called app integration. Being able to adjust the settings of all your bedroom features from one place defines the smartness of high-tech bedrooms. Different gadgets have their apps, while those that don’t, such as switches, can be influenced by gadgets.
From an app, you can close your windows, open your door, heat your bed, switch between light modes, clean your room, and do all sorts of things. Having control of everything, or almost everything, in your room in one place is essential to a high-tech bedroom.
Putting things in order and removing dirt from your room ensures that it remains comfortable and helps your hygiene; however, you can be too tired to do these things after a long day or in a rush to have enough time to do it at the start of the day.
You don’t necessarily have to clean your bedroom in a high-tech bedroom manually. Instead, there are cleaning robots that’ll map your bedroom and clean it while you’re occupied with something else. One of the advantages of a smart bedroom for cleaning is that, as cleaning may cause dust to rise in your bedroom, your microclimate controller will clean the air almost immediately.
High Tech Bedroom Ideas
You can have a high-tech bedroom without all the gadgets; however, you can choose to have more than enough gadgets. Here are some high-tech bedroom ideas that show you how to set up your bedroom.
High-Tech Bed for High Tech Bedroom
Since you normally have a smart bed in a high-tech bedroom, you can go all out and choose one that has all the needed comfort you can hope for. You can have lighting, heat control, and a smart clock as part of your smart bed.
However, the high-tech bed in this bedroom idea isn’t just smart. It is perfect for a simple and contemporary bedroom. Its color is one or two hues darker than the wall’s color, and it is impossible to miss its aesthetic because of its size.
The warm lighting at the base of the bed serves you when you wake in darkness and need to navigate around the room. Its warmth helps you to remain close to sleep. Also, you can easily control the bed’s temperature with this type of bed to suit what you desire. Note that the window blinds are automatic, and your bed can wake you if you set its alarm.
High Tech Small Bedroom
It doesn’t matter how many square feet you have in your bedroom; you can transform it into a high-tech bedroom with the addition of screens. Remember how cool it is to be able to work, watch movies, or attend virtual classes while in bed? This high-tech bedroom idea helps you to achieve that.
With what seems like a regular mattress, you can have a bedframe, including its headboard, capable of holding and powering devices such as a smart TV. In addition, you can have a screen at the foot of your bed and cast the TV screen on it. Also, you can have a circular false ceiling to serve you while you lay on your back.
However, you’ll need a false wall that houses all the control for your gadgets. For example, it can contain control for your air conditioner, clock, and other gadgets.
Minimalist High Tech Bedroom
Many tech-savvy homeowners favor simplistic designs in their high-tech bedrooms. Not because tech doesn’t blend with luxury, but luxury can easily take the attention away from the technological aspect of the room. Therefore, a minimalist high-tech bedroom is one of the common types of contemporary bedroom.
The center of attention is the minimalist bed with LED lights. Unfortunately, no bed frame creates a good color combination with the area rug. However, the accent wall carries two framed artworks that appear ordinary but can be a faux window with surround speakers to help you escape into some distant reality.
With this high-tech bedroom idea, you can add as much techie stuff as you wish. However, keep them as simple as possible.
Elegant and Stylish High Tech Bedroom
A cool ambiance seems to be enough to make your bedroom welcoming, but it’ll be cooler if you can add voice commands to the list of things your bedroom can do. You can control sound, light, and timing with your voice.
This bedroom is stylish and peaceful with its choice of color. The furniture is elegant, and you can easily see the bathroom from anywhere in the room. While these are great, the most important piece of furniture for a high-tech bedroom is the bed. The bed for this elegant bedroom should, at least, have warm ambient lighting at its base. A USB outlet for your device is also an addition.
However, you should have voice command smart hubs, such as Amazon and Google. You can control your lighting, music, and air conditioner with it.
A high-tech bedroom requires that you have some tech gadgets in the bedroom. While you may not have all of them, you can start with a few. These gadgets include a cleaning robot, remote or voice-controlled lights, an air conditioner, and window blinds. However, it’ll be best if you start with a smart bed.
