What Will Local Homes Look Like In 2030?

What Will Local Homes Look Like In 2030?

Back in 1989 the BBC technology show Tomorrow’s World looked at what the average UK home of 2020 would look like.

Its predictions were hit and miss, but they did forecast technology would play a huge part in how we lived.

They said we’d be able to control our lighting, music and heating by voice commands (Alexa, Google Assistant, etc.). That our homes would be more energy efficient (we’re getting there) and that our windows would be able to turn into TV screens at the flick of a switch (not just yet).

And as we ease into the new decade, people who look ahead to see how technology will shape our lives (they’re called futurists), have been making some predictions of their own for the homes of 2030.

These include:

  • Ditch your keys – Facial, fingerprint and voice recognition that opens your doors could become commonplace meaning that the scramble to find your keys becomes a thing of the past.
  • Modular Homes – Think LEGO on a grand scale. Futurists suggest technology will make it possible for people to increase or reduce the size of their property to fit their needs.
  • E-cars – Electric vehicles and charging points will become the norm. As our homes become smarter at storing energy, futurists predict we will be able to share surplus power with our neighbours more easily.
  • Technology free rooms – People will start seeking refuge from gadgets in low tech, screen-free ‘quiet’ spaces.
  • Wow Wardrobes – Struggling to choose what to wear? Smart wardrobes will receive data from your schedule and weather updates to suggest what clothes you own that are best suited to your day ahead.

The big changes will involve what happens in our homes, not how they look from the outside.
