Posted on October 12, 2018 in Inspiration

The desire of every homeowner is a stylish house, fully furnished to your own taste. From retro to modern, from sleek to rural. A stylish house comes in all shapes and sizes. Whatever type of interior is best for you, stylish and smart go hand in hand perfectly! With Homey you create a smart home completely to your taste and style.

(Roller) Blinds

Windows can be found in every house. (Roller) blinds are therefore an excellent opportunity to decorate and accentuate your windows. The offer of (roller) blinds is enormous. Roller blinds, sun screens and curtains are some examples. It doesn’t stop there, the next step is choosing the right material and the desired color(s). With the right window coverings you can make your interior into a whole.

In this time, innovation is the order of the day, also when it comes to (roller) blinds. SUNWAY® is one of the precursors in the field of innovative window coverings. In addition to SUNWAY®, all window coverings with a Somfy RTS, Brel or Bofu motor can be controlled. For example, with electrically operated window coverings, you can control your roller blinds from a distance. Fully integrated and operational in the Homey Smartphone App.

With the complete electric curtain track system from Forest, you can even make ‘ordinary’ curtains remotely controlled. This is a next level solution and also requires an appropriate investment.
However, Forest offers a high-quality system where the company provides a 10-year guarantee.

With smart lighting you control the mood

Another aspect in the interior is lighting. When decorating a home, lighting is not always the priority. However, lighting has a great influence on the atmosphere in a room. In a living room a soothing, atmospheric light is pleasant. In an office space, sufficient white light works a lot better. Light intensity and the color of the lighting play a major role in this. Work with different lamps for a playful effect and be creative. Test multiple setups and discover what lighting can do for your home.

A decorative floor lamp is easily remotely controlled with a smart plug. Smart plugs are available in different variants and can be concealed practically invisibly. Do you prefer to play with the setting of light? Then choose a smart LED lamp. Most smart lights are dimmable and available in both white and color. Set the desired color based on your mood.

Do you really want to go next level with lighting? Then choose a Nanoleaf Aurora, an easy to install system with nine triangular elements in the starter package. The colorful panel can make the light react to sound and can therefore be perfectly combined with music or during gaming. The entire month of October you can use the discount coupon NANO. Take a look at the Nanoleaf Aurora in our Talks with Homey Store, use NANO and discover your discount!

Nice swinging or a relaxed jazz sound, whatever your preference, music brings a house to life. In a stylish house you naturally want to prevent a music installation from becoming a thorn in the eye.
