When it comes to our homes, we usually want everything to have its place, to have as little clutter and mess as possible, and really make the most of the space that we have available.
However, then we have the other problem of wanting the latest gadgets and appliances, but usually they’re not exactly on the small side. Especially when you think of things like TVs – they seem to be getting bigger all the time, and most of these are certainly not cheap, either, but that doesn’t stop us from wanting or buying them.
Below are some items we’ve found that, although they’re pretty big, they can actually save space, help you stay organized and will save you money in the long run, too.
These are actually a pretty great invention, because if you look back even to around 15 years ago before the internet was anywhere near as evolved as it is today, then smart tvs were really something we probably couldn’t even imagine.
Nowadays, we can have one item that does it all – it plays music, movies, allows us to go online and even access things like Netflix, so if we don’t want to pay for expensive cable subscriptions, then we really don’t have to anymore. No longer is it required to have a full entertainment system with individual devices, multiple remotes, and too many cables to count when we can simply have one TV that does it all.
This saves space because you can mount it on the wall, or even if you don’t, you just have to find the one place for it, there’s no mass of cables taking up space, and it saves money on un-necessary subscriptions, plus your electricity bills may also be lower if you’re not having all those different things plugged in.
Many manufacturers are now creating systems for kitchens and appliances that will allow you to carry out multiple functions because they know that you don’t want to have your countertops full with various gadgets for each thing you need to do. The Ninja 1500 is well reviewed for exactly this, as are a few other systems that will basically act as complete food prep and cooking systems that you can use for blending, dicing, mixing, and more. These save a lot of space, although they can be quite big, but they are only one item, and can usually be set up in different ways depending on which attachment you need at any given time, and they also save money because you only buy the one system instead of multiple pieces of equipment.
Not only is this incredibly practical, but it’s actually pretty fun, too. There are many brands of robotic vacuums on the market today, and are completely varied in price and features, so it really is just about personal choice. They take up virtually no space, unlike a traditional vacuum because they’re simply a cylinder that’s placed on the floor, switched on and left to its own devices.
