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.

So pleased with our bathroom renovation by Choice Home Remodeling! Alyssa Hayes did an excellent job in designing a functional and attractive way to best utilize our small space. Our kids are thrilled to have their own sinks! Alyssa patiently guided us through the design choices, made recommendations and outlined the construction process. The construction phrase was very timely, and Ken Brown was available for any questions and kept us informed of the schedule and what part of the project was happening when. I was very impressed that the job was finished very close to the scheduled completion date. The Choice staff and subcontractors were all respectful of our space and did a thorough job.
Very nice showroom and great staff. Doors, windows, roofing, gutters, railings, kitchen and remodeling. Pretty much a one stop shop.
Last year we renovated most of our home and replaced 15 windows, 4 doors, added 5 new windows, 1 large quad French door unit and 2 new screen doors. The primary reason we purchased everything from Choice was because of the wonderful, patient, responsive customer service from Christie Flory over a period of many months of going back and forth as we narrowed down our choices. We had many questions and concerns and she cheerfully helped us make good choices and cared about the details. The showroom is also a huge help, and the knowledge of the staff was very nice. We tried the competition and gave them a chance, but we ultimately came back to Choice because Christie was FAR more helpful and responsive when we had questions. If you have any need for new windows or doors, don't shop around, it's not worth it...just go here and start asking questions, and you'll quickly realize that the people at Choice just make everything easier. I highly recommend this place!
Had a double dining room window replaced. Did have to wait five months for it to come in and get installed. But it was worth the wait… Very well pleased! Dominic and Brandon were the installers and they were very professional and informative. Would definitely recommend choice and these two young installers! Thank you!
