Top 75 Home Trends in May

From Kitchen Vegetable Gardens to Secure Home Parcel Lockers

— May 28, 2017 — Autos
May 2017 home trends reveal two significant patterns – the continuing inclusion of eco-friendly features into the home, as well as enhanced security.

As consumers become more cognizant of how their lifestyles impact the environment and climate change, the past few years have seen a significant rise in eco-friendly consumption habits. This has extended to the home in a variety of ways, with examples like the Tegren T-Series providing one such example. The Tegren T-Series is a connected indoor gardening device that is able to automatically adjust its soil, lighting and watering conditions based on on the needs of whichever plant it is incubating.

The Postello provides a distinct example of the ways in which brands are seeking to enhance the security of people's homes. The security locker sits outside the home and owners are able to put their packages in it for mailmen to pick up, or have mailmen deliver the packages securely inside it in the event that the homeowner isn't around, or doesn't hear their doorbell.
