We prefer any bar with a Scotsman Ice Machine; you always need ice for endless entertaining. A must-have!

The water on a lake is so peaceful. Of course a pool would still be a nice amenity.

The sound, sight and smell of the ocean is very relaxing.

I don't think they are practical at all, actually. As side table they are too small to fit a drink if there is anything else on them and as a stool they are VERY uncomfortable. On a patio they are breakable....I could go on but I think garden stools are a terrible fad. Their only redeeming quality is that they add color when you need it.

I have five of them -- both inside and outside. None of them even have a chip in the glaze. I think I'd be hard pressed to break one without tossing it off the second floor balcony.

When used as a seat, they're designed to be used with a woven straw cushion -- but any cushion would do.

I like them because I don't have the room for big side tables in most places.

It's kind of hard to think of something popular for hundreds (maybe thousands) of years as a fad!

I like purple, but my husband doesn't as it's his sister's favorite color--sibling rivalry I assume. I would rather have my oranges and greens in my house so I guess it's good I can live without it.

My current and last home has the spice rack built onto the inside of the pantry door. I LOVE it. I keep them alphabetical, which makes gathering ingredients so fast. The lower rack is larger for the taller bottles and unusual shaped items.

Nothing is handier than a wall or counter top or door rack.

Our previous 2,098 sq ft home was a two story and we loved it. But, it really took a toll on me running up and down the stairs and cleaning the house took me so much longer. We now own a 1,700 sq ft one story home and we love it. Plus, it is quicker to clean and is such much more friendlier on my knees and back. Yes, this is our forever home and I wouldn't trade for anything. :))

Feeling more secure from home intruders because one is in a second storey bedroom is a false sense of security. Thieves know that most people keep their cash & jewelry in their bedrooms. The premise of feeling "more secure" in a 2 storey is based on the hope that an invader will never venture up the stairs. Why wouldn't they, if they believed that's where the most lucrative 'take' is?

In a one storey, if one hears someone breaking in, they can open a window, jump out, andT run to a neighbor's. In a 2 storey, one is trapped unless they already have a fire ladder attached to the window ready to go. And climbing down that ladder will take extra time opposed to just jumping out a few feet.

The advantage of a more than one storey home is that it maximizes the space in a lot, and it can be cheaper to build. In terms of "escaping" a home it is disadvantageous compared to a one storey.

I live in a 2 storey. I get some of the reasons some folks have a preference for such. But for security??
Uh uh. No way.

And if I felt I needed burglar bars on my windows... I'd have to seriously consider why I was living in that neighborhood to begin with.

i was forced to do mixed chairs but i like the result. i bought 6 brown leather-cushioned chairs with a rounded wooden back and then bought an 8-10 person table. they didn't make my original chairs anymore when i went back to fill out the table.... so i bought 4 grey upholstered chairs with a similar shaped back and then interspersed the two sets of chairs.
