Did you know with the economy bouncing back and consumers thinking about a brighter future that homeowners are once again putting an extra emphasis on the exterior features of their home this year? Based on the Better Homes and Gardens 2011 Consumer Preference Survey, the top outdoor features that homeowners are looking to add or improve in their homes are:
- Deck or Patio (84% or those surveyed)
- Low-maintenance exteriors (79%)
- Outdoor grilling or living area (67%)
