Between mowing the lawn, keeping up with the cleaning, doing the dishes and the laundry, sometimes, owning a home can feel more like my home owns me! That’s why I’m so impressed by the HGTV Smart Home 2014, which has inventive, built-in ways to make common home headaches and chores sooo much easier.
As HGTV’s tour guide through this year’s giveaway house, I was given the inside track on some of the most interesting features, from a front yard that’s designed to stay green with less yard work, to a breakfast bar that makes morning madness a breeze. See the full story here.
And here’s a preview of one thing that makes the home so smart: when it’s time to say goodnight, one button gets it all done. A touchscreen not only controls the lights, but sets the alarm, locks doors and offers secure video of entrances and exits, so you really can sleep tight.
