SMART TV HELPS MODERNIZE LOCAL HOME

Smart TV Parade of Homes

A pair of Smart TV’s from Sony and audio gear from Sonos helps modernize a local home. See how it looks in a newly remodeled home during the 2017 Fall Parade of Homes.

Kenowa Builders extensively remodeled 310 Lakeside Drive in East Grand Rapids. The almost 100 year old home now also has new electronics from Classic Stereo. It is open to the public Friday October 20 and Saturday October 21 from 1-8pm.

INTEGRATE YOUR FAVORITE APPS WITH SMART TV

The remodeled home in East Grand Rapids features a variety of smart technology, including a 75-inch Sony Bravia Smart TV. Sony’s Android TV and Google Chromecast makes the TV smart by letting you transfer what’s on your phone to the bigger screen.

Think about all that you can enjoy in the comforts of your home:

  • games
  • photos
  • music
  • movies
  • internet apps
  • and more

Chromecast also makes searching easier by letting you simply use your voice.

The Grand Rapids Parade of Homes offers a firsthand look at the newest trends in home design. Bekins and Classic Stereo supplied products in six of the homes featured this fall. Click here to see them all.

  • Wednesdays 5-8pm
  • Fridays 1-8pm
  • Saturdays 1-8pm

One remodeled home opens to the public on October 20 and 21 from 1-8pm. You can find electronics from Classic Stereo in that home.

The Parade of Homes offers quite a variety too. The home values range from $150,000 to over a million dollars. Click here to buy tickets online for only $10. Tickets cost $12 if you buy them at the home. Children 12 and under get in free with a paying adult.

TALK ABOUT VIDEO QUALITY!

The Sony Bravia Smart TV pairs 4K Ultra HD picture quality with the contrast, color and detail of High Dynamic Range.

With four times more pixels, 4K Ultra HD TV’s offer much better clarity to your picture.

High Dynamic Range increases the range of contrast and colors. It makes images appear to have more “depth.”

Add the 120Hz native refresh rate plus Motionflow XR and you can watch fast moving action scenes with virtually no motion blur.

SOUND PROVIDED BY SONOS AND CLASSIC STEREO

Here is a look at some of the Sonos products supplying sound to the home:

PLAYBAR

  • Two-in-one. Adds full-theater sound for your TV. Streams music, too.
  • Simple two-cord setup. One for power. One for your TV.
  • Works with your existing TV remote.
  • Works lying flat or wall-mounted.
  • Streams over wi-fi, not Bluetooth, so the music never stops – even if you get a phone call.

PLAY:1

  • Mini. Fits in any space, fills any room.
  • Mighty. Surprisingly rich sound despite its size.
  • Humidity resistant. Perfect for the bathroom (or backyard).
  • Wall or stand mountable.
  • Streams over wi-fi, not Bluetooth, so the music never stops – even if you get a phone call.

BACKYARD RESORT: OUTDOOR ELECTRONICS & APPLIANCES

Outdoor Electronics Holland Parade Home

You would think it was a tropical island vacation. Yet, a local couple brought that experience to their home in Holland. See how outdoor appliances and outdoor electronics provide a backyard resort at 14728 Powderhorn Trail.

The 2017 Spring Lakeshore Parade of Homes features this and other landscape designs for a limited time.

Landscape Design Services turned the backyard ideas into a reality. It features a bar with a grill, refrigerator and other appliances furnished by Bekins. An outdoor television and in-lawn speakers from Classic Stereo gives guests little reason to ever go inside. They made it grand enough to host big groups but cozy enough for a couple to enjoy.

MEANT FOR OUTDOOR ELECTRONICS

It is important to note that manufacturers do not build all televisions and speakers to withstand the weather outside. This backyard features Sonance landscape speakers and a Seura outdoor television. A reflective coating protects the TV screen and your view from the sun. It also protects against:

  • rain
  • snow
  • dust
  • insects
  • fog
  • humidity
  • extreme temperatures (-30 degrees Farenheit to 122 degrees Farenheit)
  • and more factors mother nature can throw its way
Outdoor electronics Holland 2

The homeowner controls all of it with Control 4 home automation. The system lets you control your entire home with a touch of a button or a simple voice command.

TICKETS PLEASE

DESIGN INSPIRATION: A CASUAL, FRIENDLY HOME

Design-Inspiration-Classic-Stereo-Blog

If you are looking for design inspiration, consider visiting a local home on Gun Lake with a casual and friendly feel.

Bekins and Classic Stereo teamed up to furnish a newly constructed home at 3961 England Drive in Shelbyville.

  • Appliances bought at Bekins and installed by a Bekins Appliance Installation team.
  • Electronics bought at Classic Stereo and installed by a Bekins Electronics Integration team.

Any lakeside home has a cottage feel but the homeowners plan to eventually retire and live here all year. Jan Brown Interiors designed it and Jason Curtis Builders built it to be a family-friendly, four-season home.

JAN SAYS THAT IS WHY THEY CHOSE BEKINS AND CLASSIC STEREO TO FURNISH THE APPLIANCES AND ELECTRONICS. THEY WANTED QUALITY PRODUCTS THAT WOULD LAST.
