What can I do about soft brakes on my car?

I have a newly acquired 2007 Lexus ES350 sedan. It was my dad's, it is in excellent shape, has been well maintained, and has 50,000 miles on it. I drove a 2003 Lexus before this and had a similar issue to the one I'm having on the 2007, which is that the brakes are just too soft for my tastes. It seems it is part of Lexus' "feel" to keep the ride smooth but I really dislike that I have to press so far and so early to get a good stop.

So, what are my options to improve the responsiveness and "tension?" A quick google mentioned braided stainless steel brakes. Is that what I want here? Any ideas on how much changing the brakes more to my liking will cost?
