Hi-tech ap­pli­ance trends show­cased at con­cept home

The Enterprise - - Real Estate - BrandPoint

On a tree-lined street in the Brookhaven neigh­bor­hood of At­lanta, a house built with the goal of bet­ter liv­ing through de­sign opens its doors to the pub­lic this fall. Each space was cre­ated with com­fort, peace and seren­ity in mind, from the de­clut­tered en­try­way, to the in­tu­itive kitchen with lux­u­ri­ous state-of-the-art ap­pli­ances de­signed to eas­ily bring healthy choices to a fam­ily’s nightly din­ner and pro­vide flex­i­bil­ity in food prepa­ra­tion, to the laun­dry room with (seem­ingly) spaceage ap­pli­ances that make the chore a breeze, to the fit­ness room that puts well­ness at the heart of a fam­ily’s life.

It’s the House Beau­ti­ful Whole Home Project Con­cept House, a first-ever cus­tom-built house that show­cases the idea that you can to dec­o­rate your way to tran­quil­ity.

“House Beau­ti­ful’s Whole Home Project shows how your house can en­hance the whole you: your en­ergy, your peace, your hap­pi­ness,” said Car­isha Swan­son, se­nior mar­ket ed­i­tor, House Beau­ti­ful and Hearst De­sign Group. “This is the first-ever cus­tom-built house that show­cases ideas and in­no­va­tions that feed hap­pi­ness and drive well-be­ing in every facet of our lives.”

Here’s a peek at im­pres­sive ap­pli­ance stand-outs in the Con­cept House:

Kitchen: Lux­ury kitchen ap­pli­ance brand Sig­na­ture Kitchen Suite was cho­sen to show­case in­ge­nious, pur­pose­fully de­signed tools crafted to re­spect our authen­tic con­nec­tion to food. There’s the 36-inch Built-in French Door Re­frig­er­a­tor, with its con­vert­ible mid­dle drawer fea­tur­ing five tem­per­a­ture zones to choose from, of­fer­ing the eas­i­est of ways to main­tain fresh­ness and the in­tegrity of ev­ery­thing you put in it.

But the real heart of the space is the new 48-inch Dual-Fuel Pro-Range. If you’re a home chef, this range will take your breath away; but for a “Tech­ni­curean,” or some­one who is pas­sion­ate about cook­ing and in­no­va­tion, it just might bring a tear to your eye. Here are the high­lights of this award-win­ning range:

• Built-in sous vide: Once lim­ited to the pros, sous vide is a cook­ing tech­nique that uti­lizes pre­cise tem­per­a­ture con­trol to de­liver con­sis­tent, restau­rant-qual­ity re­sults. This is the in­dus­try’s first built-in sous vide home range. Home chefs can achieve pro­fes­sional-level re­sults and cap­ture the full, true fla­vor of foods.

* Power up or sim­mer down: Two burn­ers can de­liver 23K BTU of horse­power for bet­ter sear­ing and quick stir-fry­ing. Two burn­ers sim­mer down to as low as 100 de­grees to pre­pare sauces and sug­ary con­fec­tions. All grates are dual-ac­tion for added ease.

• Two-zone in­duc­tion: When the recipe calls for in­stant tem­per­a­tures and pre­ci­sion con­trol, two in­duc­tion zones meet the need.

• True Combi-Steam: The 18inch oven com­bines steam and con­vec­tion cook­ing for gourmet re­sults.

• Wi-Fi-en­abled: Through the touch of a but­ton on the Sig­na­ture Kitchen Suite app for An­droid and iOS de­vices, users can en­joy the ben­e­fits of smart func­tion­al­ity like pre­heat­ing the oven re­motely.

Laun­dry: Make the “Ul­ti­mate Laun­dry Room” that helps tackle all your laun­dry needs so you can wash every week and re­fresh every day. Run­ning loads of laun­dry isn’t ev­ery­one’s fa­vorite chore, but these new ap­pli­ances from LG Elec­tron­ics give it some high-tech fun, and more im­por­tantly, make the process more ef­fi­cient and ef­fec­tive. Here are a few stand­outs:

• LG TWINWash Sys­tem with LG Side­kick: This two-in­one pow­er­house cuts up to 30 min­utes off your wash­ing time with Tur­boWash tech­nol­ogy. But it’s the LG Side­kick that packs the punch. It’s a sec­ondary mini-washer that sits be­neath the main washer and is de­signed for small loads. Have a bas­ket of whites with one red shirt? No prob­lem. Pop the shirt into the Side­kick and run both loads at once — or run them sep­a­rately.

• LG Styler: A first-of-its-kind steam cloth­ing care sys­tem and the only cer­ti­fied as asthma and al­lergy friendly by Asthma and Al­lergy Foun­da­tion of Amer­ica, LG Styler re­duces wrin­kles and odor, san­i­tizes and re­freshes gar­ments with the fastest cy­cle on the mar­ket to­day — as lit­tle as 20 min­utes. It’s a slim closet-like unit that uses pure steam (no chem­i­cals!) to re­fresh, de-wrin­kle and de­odor­ize your clothes be­tween clean­ings. It also works with other items like bed­ding and sportswear. So, that raggedy old stuffed an­i­mal your tod­dler won’t put down ... ever? Pop that into the Styler and it’ll be fresh, clean and san­i­tized.

Are they en­abled with Wi-Fi? Oui-oui! To­gether, along with the com­pan­ion dryer, they cre­ate the ul­ti­mate laun­dry room.

After the pub­lic show­ing, the Whole Home Project Con­cept House will be put up for sale. You can read all about it in House Beau­ti­ful’s Novem­ber 2018 is­sue.
