Kids are like clean slates on which we write our inspirations. They generally have a very clear, unbiased and direct take on everything. While we move to another location, it may be a drastically wrong move not to keep kids-in-the-know. They will habitually inculcate a harsh taste about the new house. Here are some moving house tips you should try with kids.

A thought from the bygone era- kitchen is an ancillary unit. Oh! Just that place where you cook meals and do the dishwashing bit. Don’t let it eat space, keep it tiny. And yes, preferably in some excluded area of the home. I can vouch for the complete whitewash of this line of thought.
Today, kitchen is the area around which homes are built. It gets maximum footfall. If a home could be personified, I would not mind calling kitchen its heart. Kitchen renovation is a worthy thought at any time. Let me take you through a few innovative ideas which are befitting of a kitchen reno project.
Our kitchen spaces have already undergone a few subtle (and distinct) transformations over the last decade. Paying due reverence to survey results; they are the most loved area of our homes. Present is always a great time to live in but future is a great place my dear friends. We do so much daydreaming about future.
I quite liked a write-up which talked about how Sydney would look in the year 2050. In my recess hours I often imagine how kitchens would look like in the year 2063, some 50 years from now.
Home buyers can kill for low-on-maintenance gadgets. Even better if the fixtures increase the sale value of their homes. Pneumatic vacuum elevators are making all the right noises in this regard. An article on the Daytona Elevator talks about this avant garde technology.
3D printing can be given credit on two counts. One, it has really thought beyond the box and two, it best exemplifies the slogan “man’s craft meets power of machine”. An article on the De Zeen magazine suggests how it was either man’s craftsmanship or machine’s sheer ability in the past, but never quite a true mixture of both – until now.
3D printed homes anyone? Well! It could have been an outer space fantasy about a decade ago but today we can at least spare it a session of noontime dreaming. Dennis Burger for the website “Technology Tell” writes why the idea is fascinating and at the same time a little impractical (at least with the present resources we have).
Solar panels have almost everything going about them; right from winning the eco-friendly vote to saving energy for you. They are also the poster boys of the “low electricity bill” revolution. This being said, the solar panels make your roofs look a trifle ugly.
An article on the website coolthings.com talks about a substitute – offering equal benefits though.
The moment you think that technology has reached its tether, it throws up an inspiring work at you. Nobody complains though. How about digital curtains? A new company called SONTE has come up with an initiative that can let you control the opacity of your windows through your Smartphone.
