Use 'have been.'
I agree that "have been" is more correct here.

The first sentence uses present tense, which would be used if you were talking generally about many different floor finishes.

If you're talking about specific floor finishes, which were laid at a certain point of time in the past, you'll definitely want to use the second sentence, which is present perfect.

sorry..

my question is that can we mix is/has been in the sentence as below:-

ii) The floor finishes of the balcony 'have been' upgraded to homogeneous tiles.

iii) The kitchen 'is' fitted with built-in cabinets and concrete worktop.

thanks


my question is that can we mix is/has been in the sentence as below:-
ii) The floor finishes of the balcony 'have been' upgraded to homogeneous tiles. It is 'has been' here because floor finishes is considered as singular subject.
iii) The kitchen 'is' fitted with built-in cabinets and concrete worktop.
Yes.

Use present tense to give a general idea. Here it means upgradation is a common or regular practice.

Present perfect denotes the work has got over and thus the place looks much better and so on.
