Thanks for sharing your terrific insight and awesome videos Matt. 

CPT recently visited the 2019 International Builders Show/Kitchen & Bath Show to sniff out any new building and design trends. Here’s what we found:

Communication is key

Last year’s International Builders/Kitchen & Bath Show showcased thousands of smart home products, and there were even more at the 2019 shows. The notable difference between this year and last is compatibility. It seems as if more and more products are communicating with one another. Until recently, the anxiety that cursed most smart home product consumers was palpable. If you wanted to get in bed with a virtual assistant (figuratively speaking), you had to worry about whether that assistant would run your dishwasher, open your garage door, or play nice with your new thermostat. In some cases, people were forced into buying inferior products because they were the only ones compatible with the “system” they had bought into. These days, more and more products are working together. This truly is a welcomed trend. Hurray for compatibility!
