When parents and kids are out for the day but pets are still in the house, it’s important to make sure they stay comfortable. It’s wise to invest in an updated digital thermostat that can set itself to adjust at different times of the day. As the sun makes the space warmer, these will keep the interiors cooler. Should the temperature drop outside, the thermostats can then increase the temperature to keep pets warm.
This view from the guest bathroom to the adjoining guest bedroom shows how one space transitions to the other. Three smart thermostats (one on each floor) that can be remotely operated and monitored help maintain desired temperatures and control energy bills.
Even in your lease, you can update your home with the latest devices. "Smart technology is all the rage. From thermostats, doorbell cameras, smart locks and light bulbs, nearly everything in your home can be connected to the internet and controlled by a smart device," offers Meghan Giddens, Invitation Homes resident design expert.
A good night's sleep goes a long way to making you feel like a brand new person. Not only does rest rejuvenate and repair your body, it does the same for your mind. There's a reason you hear, "sleep on it," whenever you're trying to solve a problem. To ensure you get your best night's sleep, start by setting your thermostat around 67 degrees. You want your space to be cool, but not cold. And then, create a bedroom haven that sends you straight to your dreams by combining the comfiest bedding, soothing hues and soft, ambient lighting.
