4 Hotel Features Ideal for Home Remodels

Bedroom — Des Moines, IA — A Tech

Hotels include unique features to help the locations stand out and cater directly to guests. If you love the hotel experience while on vacation, then consider implementing some hotel features into your personal bedroom.

The upgrades add protection, make your life easier to manage, and include a lot ideal features for your everyday bedroom use.

1. Built-In Wall Safes

A common feature for some hotels is a wall safe. Ideal for money and valuables, a wall safe will add benefits to your personal bedroom. When installed directly in a wall, you can prevent someone from simply taking the safe out of the home. The wall safe design makes it easy to hide the safe behind a painting or another wall decoration.

Use the bedroom safe for important documents, jewelry, and other valuable items. You can select a safe with a digital pin pad so you can simply input a code instead of relying on keys or combinations.

2. Access Control

One of the signature parts of a hotel is the access control built into rooms. Hotels often use key cards or fobs so guests can securely enter their rooms. For your bedroom at home, you have similar options. You could choose to install access control to the bedroom door. Instead of carrying a key card all the time, your access may include a key code you manually enter.

Along with the bedroom door, consider using access control for areas like a walk-in closet or master bathroom. With access control, you will have a lot of privacy and another layer of protection for your home.

Modern access control features allow you to connect phone apps to the access control system. So if you carry your phone toward the door, the door will detect the phone and unlock the door as needed.

For back-up options, you could also include a standard key lock on any of the doors.

3. Multi-Room Stereo

As you go from the hotel lobby into an elevator and through the halls of a hotel, you may notice the same music through all of these areas. Many hotels rely on multi-room stereo systems to provide guests with continuous music. You can create the same effect in your home with a multi-room stereo installation.

Along with your bedroom, have speakers installed in hallways and other rooms, including the kitchen and living room. The whole home audio allows you to enjoy seamless music options and listen to news radio and sports broadcasts.

The audio could also link to televisions to provide TV audio through multiple rooms of the home. For example, if you’re watching a live sports game or concert, the audio can play through the home as you prepare food or go to use the bathroom.

4. Universal Remote Systems

Hotels like to keep things simple and easy for guests. Many rooms feature universal remotes to control multiple elements in the room, including the television. You also have the option to set up an advanced universal remote system for your own bedroom.

Modern remotes include voice access to easily switch between cable television, streaming options, and video games. Access specific programs in an instant and personalize your remote to meet your needs.

Some of the more advanced touchscreen remotes include home thermostat options and connections to security systems like video doorbells. Link the remote to the lighting in the room, including dimmer options and automatic lighting, to help wake up in the mornings.

A tech specialist will accommodate your bedroom setup and program everything to work within the remote.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    This is the perfect place to go when you have no idea what to get your relatives for Christmas/birthdays. They have fun gadgets all the way up to amazing electronics. Their customized closets are also something just about anyone can use. Who doesn't want to save some space in their home? Stop by and check it out sometime.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    A Tech Easy Living is the "go to" place for my organization needs. They have items I didn't even know existed that solved my organization needs. And the service is impeccable. They are very attentive and help me find what I need to solve my problem.

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    Easy living best describes the results you get from this store. From hi-tech entertainment systems, whole house vacuums, closet organizers and much more...this store has it all. And for kitchen gadgets and accessories, they are well stocked.

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
