James Hardie releases new report, 'TREND REPORT - Outdoor Living'
James Hardie has released an new report 'TREND REPORT - Outdoor Living' that sites results from the 2010 AIA Trend Survey.
This report indicates that Architects predicted an increase in demand for homes with outdoor living space and their prophecies are being confirmed by homebuyers' desires and current homeowners' remodeling plans.
For example, over half of the architects who participated in The American Institute of Architects' Trend Survey identified that "greater use of front and side porches" is an up-and-coming trend for 2010. And, 94 percent of residential landscape architects stated that outdoor living spaces, including cooking and entertaining areas, would be popular.
