SMARTEN UP YOUR HOME

Consider the latest home solutions which will not only make your life easier but could save you time, energy and money

In today’s connected world, there is no escaping the fact that technology is all around us, from the latest smartphones and tablets to the planned rollout of smart energy meters by the government. Although some of these hightech gadgets may seem a little daunting, they can improve our lives in all sorts of ways, from making our homes work harder to saving money on energy bills. Don’t be afraid to ask for advice – if you’re unsure if a particular thermostat will work with your heating system, for example – and be safe in the knowledge that you don’t need to be a technical whizz to make these products work. The majority are very simple to install or set up and may even be accompanied by an easy-to-use app which will guide you through the whole process. So take a look at our smart solutions, from music players to intelligent heating to help future-proof your home without any hassle.

About Your Home Magazine

Well, autumn is well and truly upon us but I think there’s something quite comforting about the nights drawing in, and having the chance to curl up on the sofa in front of a roaring fire. In this issue we’ve got plenty of great ideas for making your home super cosy for the coming months. If you’re thinking of replacing your flooring with something warmer, or more stylish, underfoot then make sure you read our fantastic eight-page special on page 36 where we take a look at all the latest designs for floors. Meanwhile, on page 18, you can discover how to use this season’s woodland trend to create the ultimate cosy scheme for autumn. While our craft section this month has even more woodland-inspired projects to add the perfect finishing touches to your home (p.60). Does your kitchen need a quick revamp before it gets busy in the run-up to Christmas? Then take a look at our round-up of the latest looks for worktops and splashbacks (p.50) – you’ll be amazed how easy and affordable it is to give your kitchen a whole new look with this one simple change. If you have young kids, or family with mobility problems, then making your bathroom safe for them can often mean compromising on design, but our feature on page 56 shows you can combine form with function for a bathroom that still packs a style punch. Finally, if the weather starts to turn cold outside, turn to page 100 for some wonderful, warming comfort food recipes.
