7 Favorite Show-Stopper Kitchen Upgrades 

The entire kitchen renovation will look outstanding, but these show-stopping features will take center stage. Explore the benefits and see how these kitchen upgrades take their designs to the next level:


1. Solid Material Countertops

Dream kitchen renovation ideas

Laminate countertops are a fine budget option, but a dream kitchen demands the feel and color of a solid surface countertop. Granite and quartz are the luxury countertop materials we use, and they are simply better than even the best laminate options. The authentic stone look of a solid surface countertop can’t be replicated, and the extra durable materials provide decades of great style.

2. Range Hoods

Going along with a new gas or electric range, this kitchen upgrade is a must-have for at-home chefs everywhere. From a practical standpoint this supersized hood clears the air in your kitchen quickly and efficiently, just like in a professional kitchen. From an aesthetic standpoint, nothing announces your love of all things culinary like one of these kitchen features.

3. Two-Tier Kitchen Island or Double Island

These dream kitchen features are an incredible addition to the spaces that can accommodate it. Two-tier kitchen islands provide the ultimate flexible space between a lower prep area and a higher seating area. On the other hand, the double island is a potent visual centerpiece, especially when paired with a bold countertop pattern. Either of these upgrades signal that your kitchen is a truly a one-in-a-million space!

4. Bar Seating

Going along with the two-tier kitchen island, bar seating allows you to create a multi-person seating area. This is perfect for entertaining guests while you prepare dinner, or it can be a standout spot for casual family meals on busy weekday evenings. More than any of that, since this is such an uncommon addition to see, it will surely be an attention-grabbing addition to your dream kitchen.


5. Undermount Sinks

An on-trend kitchen upgrade, undermount sinks provide a sleeker and subtler profile for your entire countertop. While once upon a time, all sinks were molded and placed down into the countertops, this breaks free of that and makes a huge style difference. Simply put, nothing makes your kitchen look new quite like a striking undermount sink.

6. Backsplashes that Match

Color and pattern coordination is one of the traits that separates a nice-enough kitchen from a magazine-worthy kitchen. One of our favorite ways to weave this coordination together is by pairing the backsplash with another element in the kitchen. You can exactly match the backsplash pattern by placing a set of accent tiles (on a tier island, for example). Of course, you can create style symmetry by connecting the color of the backsplash to the cabinet color.

7. Unique Cabinets

Cabinets are one of the most impactful parts of any kitchen remodel (and one of the biggest financial investments, too). Whether you want totally new cabinets or to simply renovate your current cabinets, you can make them all your own. Different cabinet doors or a new cabinet paint or stain color can provide a unique kitchen update without replacing perfectly serviceable cabinets.

We are engaging Choice Home Remodeling to completely gut and rebuild our kitchen. We have been working with Alyssa during the design stage and found her to be both flexible and responsive.Choice has done a number of projects for us, including a bathroom, windows, and triple panel door to our deck. They communicate well and follow up to make sure that we get what we want. If you are within an hour or two of New Holland, PA, check these guys out!
We had Choice install the most beautiful second floor sunroom ever. They began the project in December and worked through the cold and wind to finish in the end of January.They were very professional, punctual and paid great attention to detail. The workmen were very pleasant to be around and always had time to listen and discuss any issues we had. We would recommend them to anyone that wants a quality job done at a reasonable price.
This was the most professional and 100% the best price out of all the sliding door quotes I received. They were thousands less than other companies and the door is beautiful. Took them only a few hours to install and made it look beautiful. I recommended them to all my neighbors and friends already. Dont waste your time getting quotes from anyone else. Beautiful job Choice!
We used Choice to redo our master bathroom and kitchen. They did a great job with the design and installation. The crew working in our home were professional and very skilled. They didn't take any short cuts and we didn't get extra charges after the initial proposal. I would definately use them again and recommend them.
