Top 100 Home Innovations in September

From Modular Bathtubs to Prefabricated Homes

— September 29, 2018 — Eco
How one designs and fills their abode says a lot about them, and this list of September 2018 home innovations demonstrates the length consumers are willing to go to to personalize their space, making it both convenient and comfortable.

Technological advances are helping to keep one's home clean as innovations like the Roomba i7+ now feature a self-emptying disposal feature. On a similar note the Lawnba E1600 is offering a more seamless way of keeping one's lawn tidy as the robotic mower is easily programmed to do this tedious chore autonomously.

Meanwhile, the prevalence of compact living has seen a rise in innovations with designs like a conceptual zip-lock-like bathtub and prefabricated flatpack homes, making it easier to live comfortably in a small space.
