Pool and a sauna :) even living in a cooler climate I would love a pool in the summer months !

Between the two I would pick hot-tub. I live in a cooler region where a hot-tub is usable year round while a pool requires a little more upkeep and being outdoors would mean it would get little to no use between September to May. Hot tubs are also generally smaller leaving more room for dining space/ loungers in the warmer months and garden and green space year round. In my area it is much more convenient to drive out to the lake or community pool for actual swimming, but sitting out in the hot tub watching the stars year round with a drink- alone or with friends and family is so relaxing. Especially good for sore feet/knees/backs after a long day.

Honestly, I think it's just semantics...an attempt to transition one phrase into the other. After reading the houzz article describing 'work zones', it could just as easily describe my 'work triangle' kitchen. I Dishwasher & trash next to sink, check. Landing areas next to major appliances: check. Large island to keep guests a bay: check.....

I live in a small town filled with older homes. I know few people who upgrade their kitchens to look like the glam-fabulous photos here on houzz. Most people I know don't ever get around to kitchen remodeling and just make do with the old.

Another thing: I read that kitchens have come a long way because all the architects used to be all men and they seldom spent time in a kitchen, therefore kitchens weren't 'user friendly'. Once women came on to the scene, their input helped kitchens evolve into rooms that function well and are family gathering places.

I don't have time to read all the other comments, so maybe someone has already said this, but I think it's a good idea to have the sink and the cooktop/range on the same run of cabinets, so that they are not separated by a walkway. This makes prep and cleanup easier and safer, since no one can walk between the chef and the sink while the chef is trying to drain pasta.
