Putting your own name on your gift list is a great way to reward yourself for doing so much during the holiday season. Whether you buy something you’ve been wanting or treat yourself to a well-earned bit of pampering, you’re a deserving recipient of your own generosity! Maybe the thing you’ve been dreaming of is a change of place. Great! Then while you’re in the shopping mode, why not give yourself the gift of ideal new home upgrades! Riverside Homebuilders has some ideas for you to ponder as your dream home visions dance in your head.
Cook up something special in your kitchen.
The kitchen is often the center of the home, both in location and the ongoing activity. As you’re planning a new home, look here for inspiration to incorporate upgrades. Some of the most popular choices impact the cabinetry. The cabinets’ color and style define the kitchen and make a big difference. We include knotty alder, flat panel cabinets as a standard feature, but also offer the design option of upgrading to maple cabinets. If you prefer, opt for painted kitchen cabinets. With five colors to choose from, you can customize the look of your kitchen. The two-tone look—one cabinet color for the island and a second one for the rest—is also a popular kitchen design trend.
While we’re looking at your kitchen, the appliances are another obvious place to invest in an option. The Frigidaire GalleryⓇ Series features a smudge-proof stainless steel finish, so it’s easy to clean and looks great. Each of the kitchen appliances in this series offers advances in function and design that will reward you for years to come. So, it’s a great use of your design budget.
Elevate the floor plan.
Riverside Homebuilders provides an easy-to-use tool to customize the floor plan for your new home. Just click on the plan and select “Design My Home”. You’ll then see the choice of elevations—two or more ways we can modify the layout. For example, on the Colorado floor plan, this single-level home includes 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, an open concept in the main living area, and a flex room. When you click on “Design My Home”, you can see the three different elevations for the exterior. The interactive feature lets you choose the elevation and then click on the available features, like a fireplace, game room, and alternative design for the master bath. Choose whichever options appeal to you and you can see how they change the floor plan.
Depending on the elevation, you might also have more choices for the exterior details, like brick and stonework. When considering upgrades, don’t overlook your home’s curb appeal!
Along these same lines, Riverside Homebuilders’ customers often elect to change the front door. This key part of your entryway makes a definite statement! We offer exterior door styles that include Craftsman and decorative hardwood with glass and iron accents.
Start with our upgraded standard.
Riverside Homebuilders already includes many standard features in our single-family, new construction homes that other builders might consider an option. When it comes to your comfort and convenience, we like to make sure we’re starting at a higher level. Our new homes in the DFW suburbs include granite countertops, 14 SEER air conditioning, tile backsplash in the kitchen, security system, smart home control hub, foam insulation, and top quality plumbing and light fixtures.
