The world is undeniably becoming more tech-friendly, with smart gadgets becoming more and more pervasive in our surroundings. The once conventional way of decorating the home has also reflected this change as homeowners opt for products like smartly designed, sleek-looking bots.

Air purifiers rid your air of undesirable particles and pollutants like dust and pollen. If you long for clean, fresh air in your home, this is your go-to product. A great air purifier can go beyond cleansing the air in a bedroom or hallway; it can extend to the living room or other larger areas of your home. Such a purifier includes the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty. One of its strengths is its reduction of some pollutants by 70 per cent per hour.

The appeal behind smart mirrors is the fact that they can be adjusted to your liking. They also have touchscreen surfaces and lighting you can modify. Rather than struggling with poor lighting and posing awkwardly by a standard mirror for the best angle to view yourself, you can opt for a mirror of convenience. As well, smart mirrors tend to have sleek designs, making them look nice in the bathroom.

The same could be said about a TV you find cumbersome and invasive in your home. Rather than taking up the space in your living room or hanging a hefty TV from your wall, check out the Samsung Frame TV. This TV is slender and consists of frame borders, resembling a picture frame.

You can activate either the vacuum or mop mode to get it going. This type of robot cleaner is also convenient as it takes up less space due to its small, circular size. There are no pesky cords to hang onto or a burdensome bucket to drag along. An item like this can be perfect for any type of home, such as a house or apartment, and there is no need for you to hide it in a closet.
