These August 2018 home trends range from AI trashcan accessories to streamlined renovation projects that embrace a minimalist design approach. While smart home products have been around for some time, this month's examples expand beyond digital assistants to more unexpected everyday products. Standouts include 'Oscar,' an AI-powered waste receptacle that can recognize and sort trash items like organic matter and recyclable plastics.
Other August 2018 home innovations to note include writer-inspired home organization accessories. Marie Kondo's 'Hikidashi' home storage range is a direct reference to her best-selling book 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up' and aims to encourage individuals to streamline both their lives and the spaces they live in.
Self-sufficient desert retreats, indoor microgreen gardens and high-end houseboat residences round off this list and speak to consumers' ongoing desire for sustainable design and architecture solutions.
