Top 10 Popular Upgrades
Customers can take advantage of two great levels of inclusions – Designer Inclusions and Elegance Inclusions, along with current offers such as the Designer Offer and Elegance Offer, to upgrade certain finishes throughout their build journey. A list of Top 10 Popular Upgrades has been compiled below, to cut through the maze of decorating options and help guide customers to create stunning (and personalised) homes from the ground up.
1) Caesarstone® Colours
2) Cabinetry Colours
Looking to elevate the look of a kitchen or bathroom? Opt for the most luxurious cabinetry colour upgrades, available as part of the Designer Offer and Elegance Offer. Upgrade from solid colours in Laminex and Formica cabinetry to more textured finishes like Silk, Nuance, Chalk and Absolute for added style.
Make the heart of the home more functional with popular upgrades like pulldown tapware, an undermounted sink and a handy accessories board to chop ingredients. Another common enhancement customers choose in their kitchens is a pull-out twin bin to separate everyday waste and recycling rubbish.
4) Shower Rails
Many families choose to upgrade to enjoy the convenience of a twin shower rail, so they have the option of a hand-held and overhead shower. This item is included in the Elegance Inclusion level for ensuite bathrooms.
5) Shower Niches
This on-trend design option is the perfect clutter-free way of storing shower essentials. Why have a shower caddie when there’s a custom-built shower niche option available? Providing a functional, durable, easy-to-clean, and stylish finish to ensuites, it’s little wonder this is a popular bathroom upgrade for customers.
6) Dulux® Wash & Wear Paint
Maintain that new-home look for years to come by painting with Dulux Wash & Wear. Simply wipe away scuffs, stains or sticky little fingerprints with ease, thanks to this hard-wearing finish that lasts. Customers can upgrade to the Matte finish for an elevated look.
Available through the Elegance Offer, customers can then choose to upgrade their carpet to the Silver or Gold ranges. And for additional softness underfoot, customers commonly upgrade from the standard 7mm foam underlay to a 10mm foam underlay thickness.
8) COREtec Vinyl Planks
This popular flooring upgrade is available to all customers who want a hard-wearing yet on-trend timber flooring look, and an alternative to tiles in their main living areas. COREtec vinyl planks will give interiors a warm and natural vibe. And best of all – they’re 100% waterproof, petproof and kidproof!
9) Window Treatments
Customers often choose to upgrade their homes with functional and stylish window treatments to filter light or add privacy. Some of the most popular additions include roller blinds (available in blockout and translucent fabrics), shutters (for a quintessential Hamptons look) and sheer and blockout curtains available on various tracks (pencil pleat, S-fold and eyelet) to determine the way the fabric falls.
10) Ducted Air-Conditioning
Customers can enjoy multi-zoned ducted air-conditioning throughout their new homes from premium brand Daikin, which is offered via the Elegance Offer. Customers can choose to upgrade to the MyAir system, which allows homeowners to control the temperature and zones of their sparkling new residence with the touchscreen tablet provided or through the app on their smart device for convenience on-the-go!
