Top 60 Home Trends in October

From Breakup-Specific Storage to Robotic Vacuums

— October 28, 2018 — Top Lists
The house is one of the most important spaces in one's life and these October 2018 home innovations should provide the consumer with inspiration and information regarding the latest in at-home technology, design and more.

As always, the integration of technology is dominating consumer interest. A prime example of this is Opendesk's AR furniture app, which enables consumers to visualize what a furniture piece could look like in their home in a manner that's more realistic than ever. Moreover, products like Coral One, a robotic vacuum, are making daily tasks more convenient. This particular innovation even features a hand component so urgent messes can be cleaned immediately.

Meanwhile, those going through a breakup might be drawn to the 'ExBox' -- a unique storage box that's designed specifically for passing getting rid of items that one has emotional attachments to.
