- Wider than standard front door.
Wider than standard doors in general-- not only is this nice, but it's also something to consider for re-sale if you live in an area with lots of seniors citizens. Wheelchairs can get through wider doors.
ALong that line of thought, ergonomically designed door handles/drawer fronts, etc etc.
I think that house build with the elderly/handicapped in mind will be a valuable commodity in the coming years.
