From flatscreens to top-of-the-line kitchen appliances, technological touches can make a great home even better, all while seamlessly fitting into the space's aesthetic. Case in point: our readers, who know a thing or two about incorporating high-tech elements without feeling like they're living in a spaceship. Here are a few of our favorite examples.
1. Amy & Todd's Mod Chicago Home. This Smart Tech, SM Energy Star-rated home is full of high-tech appeal, but our fave is the ventless fireplace in the bedroom.
2. Sherry and Miguel's Marvimon House. With a sweet 16-foot digital cinema, movie night is definitely at Sherry and Miguel's place.
3. Greg & Rob's Sky Suite. This oh-so-modern Chicago condo boasts a remote-controlled LED lighting installation above the dining-room table.
4. Chloe's Stylish West London Home. This sleek and stylish living room might look unassuming, but its concealed disco lights turn it into party central.
5. Johanna & Derek's Airy Live/Work Studio. What keeps this wide-open layout cozy? Radiant-heated floors!
6. Alan's Retreat in the Hills. A wall-mounted flatscreen and a huge, comfy couch make this modern living room the perfect perch for a Netflix binge.
7. The Canal Apartment. This Paris appartement has one ingenious kitchen: complete with triple-purpose cooker/oven/dishwasher!
