Question of 12 Only where you feel safe do you feel comfortable. Therefore the topic of "burglar resistance" has a high priority for a lot of people. What affects you personally most? A secure home is very important to me. I always ensure that my front door is locked and the windows are closed before I leave home. Of course I am aware of the hazards and the increasing number of burglaries and think that new technology can provide me with more security. I have a guardian angel and watchful neighbours. I have no money for extensive burglar resistance at the moment. It is important for a lot of people to live independently well into their old age. Hence solutions for the elderly at home are an integral part of room comfort. How do you see that? I am aware of the fact that old age brings limitations and one is dependent on the help of others. That is quite natural. I think it is important to discuss and deal with this topic. Of course I would like to live as independently as possible in old age. I place great value on solutions that will increase my independence and quality of life. My home should now provide all possibilities to enjoy a high standard of room comfort in the future. A clear and modern design creates a positive room feeling. Would you prefer especially elegant and high-quality products to conventional products? There is too much emphasis on aesthetics and design in my opinion. In general I would not like to spend more money for this. I allow myself some luxury here and there. Especially when a good design also has special benefits for my room comfort. Design, for me, is also quality of life and an important aspect in private living space. I delight in things that other people do not have and which stand out from other products. Many people attempt to save precious energy in their household, which they rapidly forfeit due to improper ventilation. How do you handle this? The whole discussion on the topic of "saving energy" goes too far in my opinion. If I switch off the heating during ventilation, that should be enough. I know that ventilation in winter has a great impact on my heating costs, unfortunately. I therefore rely on intensive ventilation. I do not know of any options for efficient airing. Saving energy is very important to me – to save the environment. If there were a way to lose less thermal heat during ventilation, that would be ideal. Contemporary architecture is distinguished by large glass areas and patio doors. This provides a special room experience, but not necessarily room comfort. What is still necessary in your opinion? If modern sliding doors and windows can be securely operated using less force, I am satisfied. My sliding doors and windows should also be easy for my children to operate and for me when I am older. Preferably by pushing a button or via smartphone. The main thing is that my windows, doors and sliding doors are secure. Special comfort features are only frills for me. Smartphones simplify our everyday routine in many areas of life. Could you imagine using your smartphone or tablet to make your home more secure? I already use my smartphone to control many things more conveniently. Of course I can imagine using my smartphone to control modern security solutions in my home. Of course it would be good if my smartphone made my home more secure. But I haven´t really thought about it so far. Whatever is possible with a modern smartphone: it is just a telephone for me. And this is the way I want to use it. A pleasant room atmosphere is created by optical space and a lot of daylight. It allows the room space to appear larger and therefore supports your room comfort. Which statement do you identify with? I cannot get enough of natural daylight. This is why I like open room concepts in which there is a flowing transition between the interior and exterior. Rooms flooded with light are natural for me, whereby the materials, colours and proportions also play an important role. I am a lover of detail. I love to live like I eat: as cosy and rustic as possible. This also applies to my furniture and the interior design. Proper ventilation protects not only against mould formation. Depending on the type of air supply and quality of the indoor air, ventilation is of central importance for a healthy room comfort. What is important to you? My home should offer me the opportunity to supply fresh air without draughts. Preferably as need-oriented as possible and also when I am not at home. I would wish for healthy air that enters the house through closed windows to be free of pollen or fine dust and self-renewing if it is no longer fresh. When the air at home is too stuffy, I ventilate intensely to obtain a good air flow. This perks up weary spirits especially in winter. "Smart Home" is the magical word for modern room comfort. App solutions in particular offer you the opportunity to live more safely and relaxed. What would give you a real feel of magic at home? It would naturally be more convenient if at least a few of my daily actions could be accomplished at the push of a button. Whether it functions via remote control or via app is not important for me. A perfect home should offer me maximum comfort and special security. It would of course be ideal if I could use my smartphone or if things could be regulated automatically. I am a fan of the simple life and practically do without modern technology. The easier things are made for you, the lazier you become. In keeping with the motto: If you rest, you rust. Wide open windows quickly bring fresh air into the home, but are also a hazard, an "invitation to break in". How would you best like to ventilate your home? Permanent and pleasant basic ventilation would be my desired solution. Ideally ventilation should also be possible during my absence, without increasing the risk of burglary. I air my home two to three times a day and I am always at home during this time. Anyone who attempts to climb into my home will have to deal with me first. With the present technology, it should be possible to ventilate in a secure and energy-efficient way without having to open a window. Design is a matter of taste. This is also shown in the designing of your own four walls. Which rooms do you feel comfortable in? My room should also be a statement of modernity. This is why I opt for a very reduced design and very clear use of form. My primary aim is to feel comfortable and safe. This is why I like things decorative, colourful and cosy. For me, rooms should simply fulfil their purpose. Just like my favourite jeans: They still fit like a glove after twenty years. Nowadays environmental impacts such as noise, air pollution and pollen have a considerable influence on health. How are you affected by this inside your own four walls? If the window is open, noise does play a part in my living space. It would be nice if I had my peace and quiet especially at night even if the windows were open. Health in my own four walls is very important to me. It would of course be ideal if I had a healthy room air climate at home without pollutants and pollen. I live in the country or in a quiet area where noise does not play a part. Thank goodness I am spared from allergies.
