One of the funnest parts about buying a brand new home is the ability to pick all of your options. While a lot of the upgrades are super expensive, certain things are just better to get done and out of the way. So far we have had to finalize the following:
Bifold door off the kitchen
4th bedroom/4th bathroom conversion
4 Chandelier prewires (dining, entry, office, master)
A bunch of extra can lights
A TV plug in the master bath (Housewives and bubble baths at the same time? YES PLEASE!)
Next up? This weekend we choose plumbing and kitchen upgrades. Check back next week to see if I get my farmhouse sink and rain shower. One thing we did already chose is the granite, and I am so happy with my choice.
I really wanted marble, DUH, but budget wouldn't allow. Granite did fall in our price point, but I wanted something subtle, with few large blotches, and in a light shade.
If you were buying a brand new home, what upgrades would you make sure you got from the get go and what would you wait on?
