Are you a designer, architect, or builder? Your clients expect you to be up to date with the latest trends when working on renovations or new construction projects. You have to have a knack for architectural styles, finishes, furnishings, lighting, and other details that make your plans attractive to potential clients.
Smart home technology is one of those areas that is increasingly in demand with today’s tech-savvy homebuyers and homeowners. In a survey by the popular Houzz home design website, it can be estimated that 28% of renovating homeowners are interested in smart home automation features in their next house.
A renovation or new build project offers the perfect opportunity for you to include the latest smart home automation features that homeowners are seeking in Nashville. Here are 5 of the most requested smart features ideas to consider.
Bring the Entertainment Outside This Spring

We know it’s cold and wet this winter in Tennessee, but warmer spring weather is right around the corner. We’re all looking forward to spending more time outdoors. Relaxing in the patio, planting new annuals, and lots of other outside activities beckon to us soon. Since we’re blessed with a relatively mild climate in Nashville, how about bringing some of our audio-video entertainment outdoors for these activities?
Bringing music and video entertainment outside is a great way to maximize the enjoyment of your outdoor spaces. If you have an outdoor kitchen, imagine grilling to great tunes. Or how about inviting friends over to catch the upcoming March Madness basketball outside on the patio with your favorite drinks and food? It’s all possible with an outdoor audio-video setup, and it can be an extension of your current installation or something totally independent.

Work With a Pro Early In Your Next Project

As an architect, interior designer, or builder, you’re not expected to be an AV expert. When working with your clients, you are working through a long list of requirements regarding floorplans, space utilization, design, lighting, and a host of other things. Your clients may very well want a sophisticated and flexible array of audio and video entertainment options in their new home, but sometimes the infrastructure and design aspects of that get lost in all the other details.
It’s much easier, simpler, and cheaper to incorporate home audio video design considerations early into your next project. Why? Because not thinking about wiring infrastructure – electrical and low-voltage – may affect the flexibility of what you can do later. Also, acknowledging specific client desires with regard to audio and video can influence the size and layout of rooms.
As experienced experts in home audio video system design and installation in the Nashville area, we recommend that you bring a pro – like us – early into your projects to avoid common mistakes that can be costly to rectify. Want to know more? Just keep reading.
