Choosing to build, rather than purchase a resale allows you to select the décor, and feature upgrades to create the home of your dreams. SkyHomes Design Studio team will be there every step along the way to make your home buying and selecting process as easy as possible. We’ve highlighted some of the top decor upgrades you can make with your builder, ranging from appliances to flooring materials.
Kitchen Cabinet Upgrades
The kitchen is the heart of the home, the spot where you will spend the majority of your time and make the most memories. It can never be overly well equipped. Give attention to cabinets as this is one component of your home that future buyers will focus on.Give yourself some extra storage with extra large or additional cabinets, or cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling. Custom designed third upgrade kitchen cabinetry, with extended length uppers, matching crown moulding and a light valence will give your kitchen a look of grandeur, while increasing its resale value and overall functionality.
Appliances are the tools you will use every day to cook up a meal for your family, or when entertaining guests. Make your kitchen shine bright and improve your resale value with stainless appliances including an oven, stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator. Consider an extra large paneled fridge, oversize gas cooktop, and a built-in wall oven, fitted within your kitchen’s cabinetry. When cleaning up after a dinner party or everyday for family-use, a paneled dishwasher upgrade makes this necessity more handsome. A premium hood fan will keep cooking scents to a minimum and cut down on humidity when steaming pasta or vegetables. A stainless steel undermount sink with upgraded faucet and vegetable spray will improve your everyday food prep work. Upgrades in this space should not to be overlooked, as kitchens are the hub of the home.
Floor Tile Upgrades
Having a tile surround adds an elegance to the room as well as a great long-term investment for your home. Tile ranges from your kitchen and throughout the home to the front door. It is best to get the finest tile you can now, as it is an extensive job to change later on. Marble, limestone, slate or granite stone flooring in main foyer entry and powder room are top upgrades worthy of the investment. Upgrading the tile in one of your most used spaces, the your kitchen/servery is a smart decision, as is the laundry room which is another essential and high-traffic room.
Flooring is key to the look and feel of a home and wood floors never seem to go out of style. Upgraded engineered oak hardwood flooring in the living, dining, family rooms, hallways and bedrooms are a top feature that should be considered in your home. Not only is hardwood durable and long-lasting, but provides easy cleaning and maintenance. Natural finish oak staircases from your home’s main level, through to the second floor and loft if applicable, makes for a show stopper. Top it off with upgraded choice of metal or natural oak pickets, handrails and post with solid oak nosing.
Granite Top Upgrades
Granite countertops continue to be a popular kitchen option, and have become the standard. Consumer fondness for granite may be evolving: Popular upgrades are granites with more exotic patterns that add a different design dimension to the kitchen. Upgrading your granite or caesarstone countertops from builder’s samples is another top feature worth investing in, as these solid surfaces are unlikely to ever go out of style.
Buyers are interested in the modern, clean and sophisticated look of granite tops. Lighter coloured granites are the most desirable, as it’s difficult to find in large slabs, and gives a richness to kitchens and baths, while being eternally classic and complementing to any future decor scheme.
At SkyHomes we believe that quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution. Selecting these top decor upgrades will create the home of your dreams, with enduring design and craftsmanship.
