In the technology age, the kitchen and bath designs are changing to support cabinetry to open, close, lift, turn, and light up with remotes. Wellborn Cabinet incorporates Smart Living Solutions through operating technology such as wireless IP cameras, motion/voice-activated technology, lighting, remotely accessible appliances, motorized lifting systems, touch screen technology, and functional shelving.
Smart Living Solutions
When you’re ready to begin a kitchen remodel or refresh you’ll want to include space for technology throughout your design. You’ve got a lot of options ranging from the inexpensive voice-controlled items to the pricier WiFi appliances. No matter what your budget, here are some trendy ideas for bringing tech into your space right now.
A comprehensive lighting design includes task, safety, and ambient lighting offered through the Smart Living Solutions program. At Wellborn Cabinet, we know how important the lighting plan is to the functionality of your home. That’s why we’ve partnered with Hafele to bring you the Loox Lighting Program offering a well-rounded selection of lighting.
The way you light your kitchen can have a dramatic impact on its beauty and functionality. In addition to installing lighting in traditional areas such as over the stove and sink, use under-cabinet and over-cabinet light to create a cozy look. Or showcase your beautiful glassware or china by installing cabinets with glass inserts and interior cabinet lighting.
Now that you’ve set the mood with tech-enhanced lighting and music options, consider upgrades for other areas of the kitchen.
A livable and accessible kitchen gets you the most bang for your buck in the long run. In addition to soft-closing doors and drawers—which prevent slamming during the closure—consider installing motorized cabinets that raise and lower your cabinetry for comfortable access. These quiet motor systems adjust the height of counters and cabinets, so your storage spaces and appliances meet you where you’re at.

Cabinet innovations continue to evolve with new technologies that make life easier and more convenient than ever. In addition, many cabinets can now accommodate technology we use every day for greater flexibility and practicality throughout the home.
Easy to reach and even easier to use, the Easy Access Dynamic Single Shelving perfectly fosters universal design. Gently pull down on the handle to deliver a perfect sequence of movement to bring down all shelves within arm’s reach. Lightweight and practical, made with stainless steel and melamine—this shelving unit is durable and easy to clean. Now anyone and everyone can reach the top shelf.
The items you store in your kitchen cabinetry are more accessible than ever before with every manner of the door that lifts, folds, or rolls up and away. But for those occasions that call for a unique design or if the door sing could collide with a hood or another kitchen element, Wellborn Cabinet offers a variety of innovative cabinet door mechanisms that work as well as they look.
If space allows above the cabinet, wall-top hinge doors provide full-access to upper cabinets that are hard to reach.
Keep the peace with soft-close doors and drawers. Six-way adjustable hinges engage softly and quietly.
The Charging Drawer Station allows for a stylishly designed standard outlet to be discreetly hidden within a drawer, no matter the room. Their unique design allows you to open and close a drawer without ever needing to worry about damaging the power cord.
Integrating technology into the home also improves functionality for all generations. A universal home is about creating an attractive, stylish design that everyone, regardless of age, size, or ability, can live in or visit. A home with Universal Design makes it easier for residents to live in, and for guests to visit now and in the future; even as everybody’s needs and abilities change.
These Smart Living Solution ideas are ideal for homeowners interested in creating a timeless kitchen. Technology is ever-changing but jump on board with some of these enhancements and you won’t be sorry. Contact a Wellborn dealer today for more ideas and inspiration in your kitchen upgrade.
