Quality homes are built with quality materials. Below are just a few examples of what can go into your new dream home by Rochester Homes.

Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are all the rage. In contrast to marble, quartz is a man-made material. Quartz won’t chip or crack as easily quartz and is non-porous, which means it resists staining  better than granite and will not harbor bacteria or viruses. Quartz also comes in a myriad of colors. Rochester offers a vast amount of quartz colors options spanning three the price levels.

Drywall Arched Openings

First invented by the ancient Romans, drywall arched openings are designed to give your home simple, elegant style. Not only do they beautify a space and create visual interest, this simple detail acts as a natural separation between rooms.  Check with your builder to see if a drywall arched opening might be appropriate for your new home.

Coffered Ceilings

Coffered ceilings also have roots in history dating back to the architecture of the Baroque and Renaissance period. Coffered ceilings can   add dramatic effect to a room, resembling a three-dimensional checkerboard. In addition, coffered ceilings contribute to the illusion of spaciousness, absorb sound and potentially add to a home’s value.

Showers and Baths

Serenity Showers and Tranquility Baths

Serenity Showers and Tranquility Baths bring luxury to a home. The Serenity Shower uses less space in a bathroom since there are no door swings or frames. The Tranquility Bath offers limitless soaking comfort and relaxation. With no doors and ceramic surfaces, both are easy to maintain due to ceramic surfaces and no shower doors.

 Shower Oh!

The aptly named Shower Oh! is a game changer in luxury showers. Sure to be the centerpiece of any bath, what sets this shower apart from others is its simple, clean lines and overall spaciousness. The shower comes with acrylic marble print walls, a large 5-foot by 5-foot fiberglass shower pan with an 8-inch rainfall and 5.5-inch wall showerhead. The front of the shower has 3/8-inch stationary glass. Recessed lighting and a transom window provide plenty of light.
