Buying a new home allows for a lot of freedom when it comes to personalizing the look and feel of your home. You can choose to build your home with the standard finishes and options that your builder offers or you may want to add in some upgraded items.
Which upgrades make the most sense? To answer this question you need to think about two things – home functionality and possible resale value. Will the upgrade make living in your home more enjoyable? And will it add to the overall value of your home should you choose to sell in the future.
Particularly in the master bathroom – a separate shower and bath are preferred. A more luxurious shower option such as a tiled stall makes a big impression.
Many homebuyers expect granite countertops in the kitchen and stainless steel appliances. These features offer both visual appeal and added functionality.
Other popular upgrades include lighting fixtures, stone accents on the exterior of the home and hardwood flooring.
Some options are important to work out in the beginning stages of home design or construction because they affect the layout and build of the home. Plan in advance if you are interested in a kitchen island, gas fireplace, additional attic space or increased insulation.
