Top 10 Upgrades in 2023

For the past month and a half, we've been sharing the top 10 upgrades in our homes in 2023 on our social media platforms. We specialize in customizing our customers' pre-sale homes, and our designer, Meg, creates intentional, quick move-in-ready homes that are created with you in mind. We can make selection changes on these homes as well, if you're not completely satisfied.

Check out our top 10 list - all images for each are in a gallery below. Instagram posts are linked to titles! 

10. 30" Slide In Gas Range

Murphy Homes offers gas appliances across all 7 of our communities. Not only that, we offer several stovetop options: oven with back panel, cooktop, and, of course, the backless. We are proud to offer these options and so much more. 

9. Cultured Marble Shower

Murphy Homes offers several shower upgrade options - one of the most popular is our Cultured Marble. If you're looking for a spa-like shower style, and something easy to clean, cultured marble is the way to go!

8. Tile Shower

Murphy Homes offers several shower upgrade options - one of the most popular is our tile shower! With 20+ included tile options to choose from, you can truly design your shower for you.

7. 10' First Floor Walls

Murphy Homes offers 10 Ft Ceilings in all of our floor plans! Looking for a more elevated, grand home? This is the upgrade for you!

6. Double Arched Doors

Murphy Homes offers a variety of door styles. However, if you want your doors to make a statement, the Double Arched Doors are the obvious choice. Standing at 9 ft tall, with 6 glass panels on each side, and different glass options available, it's no wonder these doors made our top 10 list. 

5. Optional Full Bathroom

In a couple of our floor plans, we offer the option to add a second full bathroom on the second floor. These homeowners went a step further and created a second owners suite on the second floor! All 3 photos are from the same home.

4. Full Oak Stairs

When selecting a 2 story floor plan, these homeowners decided to upgrade their stairs from functional to beautiful. You don't have to sacrifice beauty for function in our homes.

3. Ventless Gas Fireplace

Our third most popular upgrade is adding a fireplace to your home! The best part: you can design it however you like! Just bring in a picture to Meg, our interior designer, and she can make it happen. Swipe to see just a few examples of the fireplace designs we've put in our recent homes.

2. Attached 1 Car Garage

Our second most popular upgrade is adding a 3rd car garage to your home! We offer this on both our Estate & Cottage products. Whether you want a workspace within your home, an additional parking space, or extra storage, you can make this space work for you!

1. Family Room Hardwood

Our TOP upgrade from 2023 is upgrading the flooring in our family rooms! The family room is one of the most high-traffic areas in our homes. By upgrading to hardwood in this area, you create a completely hard surface main floor (excluding bedrooms).
