The Lowdown on Upgrades
Creating the home of your dreams in Edgewater is easy. Our builders have numerous upgrades and structural options that you can choose from to meet your lifestyle needs. What should you spend your upgrade dollars on? That depends on your preferences, lifestyle and budget. Here are some popular and practical upgrades to consider:
Smart Home Technology
Builders routinely incorporate smart home technology in their homes, but you can add to the base package. Invest in smart home devices that increase energy efficiency, security and convenience, including adding outlets with USB ports, additional smart lights and more.
Consider upgrading flooring to materials like hardwood, bamboo or high-quality laminate. These options are not only visually appealing but also durable and easier to clean than certain carpets. Upgraded flooring will also increase the resale value of your home.
If it’s in your budget, its worthwhile to make structural changes now, rather than remodeling later. Think about your future needs. Are you planning to have more children? You might need an extra bedroom. Thinking about starting a home business? Ask about adding a study or home office.
Extended Covered Patios
Don’t wait to get the patio of your dreams. Talk to your builder about options to extend your patio so you have more room to entertain. You can also roll the cost of a summer kitchen or outdoor fireplace into your mortgage. If your budget doesn’t cover a patio upgrade see about adding the correct electrical, gas and water lines so you can improve your patio later.
The most common upgrades are for the kitchen. High-quality cabinetry and upgraded countertops are more durable. Taller cabinets that reach to the ceiling give you more storage space and a finished look. Under cabinet lighting is always useful.
The Primary Bath
If you’ve always dreamed of a spa-like bath, now is the time. If the standard floor plan doesn’t come with a tub, you can usually choose an alternate design that has one. If you don’t want a tub, you can extend the shower.
If you’d prefer not to spend time on scaffolding, upgrade your paint. Most builders offer low-maintenance paint choices that resist marks and stains.
