The Home Depot Announces 2022 Innovation Award Winners

Products with new consumer benefits from no-drip, flawless finish spray paints to smart string lights with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities topped the list of most innovative products at The Home Depot in 2022.

The 2022 top winners include:

  • Overall Winner: Glidden Max Flex Spray Paint enables users to complete spray paint projects faster on a wide range of finishes without cracking or peeling. Its revolutionary formula requires fewer spray passes than a traditional conical-shaped spray pattern and dries within 5-minutes. With an ultra-durable finish, it can be used on wood, metal, plastic, glass and more.


  • First Runner Up: Hubspace String Lights allow users to remotely customize their outdoor lighting in a snap. Color, brightness and timers at the individual bulb level can all be personalized through its easy-to-use app. Compatible with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Google Home and Alexa, the Hubspace String Lights are designed to dazzle in all weather conditions.


  • Second Runner Up: Cortex for Decking by FastenMaster is a fast and easy way to build a deck with fully hidden hardware and fasteners. The Cortex for Decking sets come with a proprietary drill bit that sets the screw to the perfect depth every time in composite, cap stock and PVC decking boards.
