Default Decor selections - Brookfield

Any tips/suggestions with Decor suggestions?
are there things that a customer should or should not go with through the builder... pls provide your input for those who already took possession of their homes for Phase1/2.

Here's my view:

Most things you upgrade at the builder will cost 2-3x aftermarket. Some things like cabinets, countertops, and tile with large amounts of labour to remove make sense to do right the first time through the builder, unless you're handy enough to rip out and install your own.

Here's what we're going to DIY:

hardwood upstairs (~ $10k aftermarket, or ~ $30k through builder)
back splash
stairs staining
pot lights (just make sure there's at least 1 switched overhead light in every room you want pot lights, so the pot light guys can use that switch. Otherwise they have to fish a switch wire which involves more holes).
finish basement (after ~ 2 years)
air conditioner
water softener
cabinet valences and crown molding (Raywal)
upgraded cabinet door handles
central vac
