Touching things is so 2019. Because of Covid-19, home design is moving quickly towards touch free operations. Why add extra surfaces to sanitize? Now you can use a wave or your hand, voice control or proximity sensors to put everyday tasks in motion. Here are a few of our favorites!
We mentioned faucets in last month’s blog about the New Normal for Your Home. It’s still at the top of our list, such an easy and relatively inexpensive addition to any kitchen that will reduce the spread of germs.
Pressure Push Cabinet Latch
Pass on hardware and opt for an easy to operate push latch that can open cabinet doors with a touch of the knee or hand.
They can be messy under the best conditions, so why not use a wave of your hand or even voice control for an assist when your hands are full.
Paper Towel Dispenser
And now that paper towels are back in stock, wouldn’t it be nice to have this touch free dispenser?
Frequent hand washing makes the soap dispenser another hotbed for germs, add the smooth operation of a touchless dispenser to your wish list. This can also be used for hand sanitizer!
Refrigerator and Wine Cooler Doors
If you’re in the market for a new refrigerator be sure to check out the technology that allows you to look inside with a knock on the window or open the door with a proximity sensor at your foot.
Water Closets aka the Toilet
Perhaps the best idea yet, a motion activated system for your toilet. Your existing tank can even be retrofitted with a touchless flush kit.
Moving into the bath, this mirror lights up when it senses you’re near and it has the most flattering light!
Hey Alexa & Ok Google
And let’s not forget to incorporate some of the home systems that can be run by Alexa or Google Assist. Another easy way to take advantage of hands free operations for everything from the coffee machine to lighting.
