7. Paving Stone Walkways

You want to make a statement when people are walking up to your home; paving stone walkways can do just that!


8. Outdoor Kitchens

Forget about outdoor grill areas! It’s time to embrace the idea of having a fully-functional outdoor kitchen.


9. Outdoor Bars

Likewise, if you’re a person that prefers to entertain outdoors, then there’s no reason not to build that outdoor bar.

10. Fire Pits

And, after you’re good and full and have had a few cocktails, who doesn’t want to retire next to a fire pit?

12. Sunken Living Rooms

All things once cool but now not will become cool again. Just ask the people who are installing sunken living rooms in their new homes.

Natural light is key in any home, which is why large picture windows are definitely the preference these days.
