Fire. A fire feature is among todays top outdoor requests. For smaller yards, a fire pit, bowl, or element built into a table can provide that romantic glow (and many are portable). Unlike fireplaces, most fire pits dont require permission from a local municipality, though they may require a certain setback from the house. Van Zandt also suggests inexpensive tiki torches to add to the fire ambiance. Water. While the sound of trickling water delights many, it offers another purpose: to block other noise. These days its easy to find a large urn or an attractive container that can be retrofitted with a bubbler to recirculate water, as Van Zandt did for a client who had a rock collection. She stacked them together and drilled a hole so water could trickle out. Furner says hes receiving more requests from clients for small lap pools.
Point out top brands. It pays to learn whats considered the industrys crème de la crème by studying websites, reading design magazines, and visiting top kitchen showrooms. “Then, drop names in marketing materials and with buyers,” says Mallios. A few products that regularly rate five-star cachet for bold creativity or artisanal craftsmanship include Bertozzi and Smeg ranges, Waterworks and Ann Sachs tiles, Flavor Paper wallpaper, Farrow & Ball and Benjamin Moore paint palettes, and Elegance in Hardware pulls and knobs. “Even if some buyers dont recognize the name, citing them gives the impression, ‘Oh, this must be special. I should Google and check it out,” Barnett says. Double down on the bold. Designers and stagers have a grab bag of tricks to tone down bold choices and attract a wider buyer pool tailored for specific situations and features. But heres one you might not have considered: Instead of trying to make a colorful range disappear, Pogonitz repeats its hue on walls or in artwork. “Any color becomes a neutral when used elsewhere in a room rather than remaining the focal point that pops,” she says. If the boldness is in a floor pattern, she takes one of its colors and repeats it in a solid on walls or counters for a unifying effect.
