Another popular trend is outdoor living spaces. Outdoor kitchens include not only barbeques, but refrigerators, dishwashers and ovens.

Exterior-grade televisions that can withstand moisture are available." Tohill will be displaying his firm's latest design projects--from room additions to entire mansions--at the show.
