We live in the times where multi purpose, multi functioning, multi tasking are some of the much in demand qualities both in humans and the objects or machines. We are constantly looking for more value. Even though our purchasing powers have increased, we are more conscious of the fact that penny saved is penny earned and not the other way around.
While we can be buying more products, since the options have increased, we tend to find something that serves the purpose of more than one. With the advancement in technology, I do not find anything wrong in doing that.
If I were to quote a common object that many of us tend to own at certain point of our lives, it will be the privacy fence. The simple times have gone and this essential item has become much more than a simple protector of our privacy. It is also one of the most visible parts of our house and this makes it highly significant that the design and look of the fence is considered thoroughly before installing it.
The outward aspects have exceeded in importance than its ultimate utility. But this is hardly something to despair about, if anything the result is to the contrary.
