10 Most Popular New Home Selections Upgrades

McKee Homes presents the 10 most popular new home selections upgrades our customers choose at their selections appointment when building a new home.

If you are thinking of building a new home with a custom or production home builder, you may be overwhelmed with all the choices and decisions that need to be made before the home is even started. This is your chance to get the home of your dreams, but how do you know which finishes, upgrades and options to choose?

One of the great aspects of working with a production builder like McKee Homes is that we have a design studio decked out with samples of all the latest design upgrades and options. With the help of our expert selections coordinator and design studio manager, homebuyers have everything they need to make the best decisions and get exactly what they want in their new homes. We are currently building a second design studio in the Wilmington, NC area.

We thought it would be helpful for you to know what design upgrades other homebuyers have chosen for their homes and which upgrades are the most popular.

The following list is the 10 most popular new home selections upgrades our customers have chosen in 2018.

  1. Quartz vs. standard granite kitchen countertops
    Quartz countertops are man-made from crushed quartz, pigment and resin. The pigment allows for a more consistent coloration with a wider array of colors than granite. Quartz does not require the level of care that granite does, such as needing to be sealed, and is better at resisting stains from spills. However, quartz can be damaged from hot pans being placed directly on the countertop.
  2. Glass or mosaic kitchen back splash
    Glass and mosaic kitchen back splashes are a popular and easy way to add color and pop to your kitchen. They look gorgeous and are easy to clean.
  3. Single Basin or Farmhouse-style kitchen sink
    Another popular way to add style to your kitchen. Single basin and farmhouse-style sinks have more room for washing large pots and pans and an apron that sticks out enough to protect the cabinet doors underneath.
  4. Slow-close cabinet doors and drawers
    You may not be able to see the difference, but you can feel and hear it. Or, not hear it, as slow-close cabinet hardware prevents doors and drawers from slamming shut. Just give them a gentle push and the hardware does the rest.
  5. Trashcan or spice rack pull-outs and pots & pans drawers for kitchen cabinets
    One of the greatest parts of building a house is customizing your cabinets with special features that add practicality and style to your kitchen.
  6. Hood vents in a Deluxe kitchen over a cook top
    Upgrade the standard microwave/vent hood into a beautiful stylish statement with a modern designer vent hood.
  7. Premium painted cabinet colors like navy or grays in kitchen, on island only or in bathrooms
    Wow your house guests with striking colors in select kitchen or bath areas!
  8. Upgraded 8-pound carpet pad
    Higher density carpet pads provide better support for your carpet, help prevent wear and wrinkles, and feel firmer underfoot.
  9. Oak tread staircase
    Another great way to add style to your home is with oak stair treads.
  10. Adding decorative pendants over kitchen island
    Pendent lights come in a variety of forms and decorative styles and can be an impressive focal point in your kitchen.
