Lakefront homeowners are increasingly opting to upgrade their docks for form and function to include a lot of bells and whistles to create a more luxurious and comfortable lifestyle.  Below we’ve put together a few of the trends in docks we think will see more of in 2018.

Dock transformations can put a pizza oven, mini-fridge, kitchen sink, microwave, outdoor TV and stainless steel countertops right next to your boat slip and swim platform.

Why not have a water pumping waterfall design from the top of your dock?
