What upgrades are worthwhile?

After looking at the layout and standard features of the model home you’ve decided to buy, the next step is to think about upgrades. Many home builders offer a plethora of options when it comes to upgrades. From flooring and cabinets to countertops and floor plans, the options can be quite overwhelming. That’s where the experienced team at Bucci can help you make the right decisions to build the home of your dreams.

Wonder what the most popular features to upgrade are – the kitchen and flooring throughout the home.  Not only will you enjoy a return on your investment if you ever decide to sell, these upgrades will bring you enjoyment on a daily basis.


Kitchens are the most popular area for upgrades for obvious reasons. As the heart of the home, people tend to gravitate to the kitchen and new homes are designed to accommodate this pull. Often opening up to a family room or great room, the kitchen allows for easy access to the most used living space.

Typical standard kitchen features include cabinetry with extra high upper shelves, a microwave shelf, bank of drawers and space for dishwasher including plumbing and electrical rough-ins for future installation are provided. A double stainless steel ledge back sink complete with single lever pull-out faucet are also standard features.

But the sky is the limit when it comes to kitchen upgrades. Bucci Homes offers a wide selection of builder’s samples to choose from. Cabinets, countertops and sinks can all be upgraded.  If you’ve always dreamed of a granite countertop, now is the time to consider it. The Bucci Homes’ sales reps can help you design the kitchen of your dreams before your home is even built.


Floors offer more than a neutral background – they are an integral part of the character and style of your home. Ceramic tiles grace foyers, hallways, bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms, making these high traffic areas easy to clean.

If you want a guaranteed way to improve the style, durability and value of your home hardwood floors are your best option. Different finishes, wood, colours, and board sizes add a warmth and rich tone to any home décor. And don’t forget about carpeting, which adds cozy comfort to bedrooms.

Combining different types of flooring throughout the house add contrast and interest to the décor. Visit one of our sales centre to learn all the colour and material selections that we offer to help you design your dream home.
