Premium outdoor living and entertaining spaces have become extremely important to buyers and are a "huge sell," says Marc-Michaels senior model home designer Kelly Diepeveen.
The huge surge in popularity for outdoor living areas means that builders can't afford to neglect these spaces in their models, Diepeveen adds.
