The phrase manufactured home typically conjures up mental images of rundown trailer parks, complete with nutty neighbors and a colony of stray cats.
Manufactured homes have come a long way from rusty RVs up on blocks. Nowadays, however, manufactured home builders offer fantastic amenities and luxurious fixtures inside the homes.
As home values increase, manufactured homes make homeownership a reality for all types of people. Modern manufactured homes have a wide range of luxury features and upgrade options that new homeowners can choose from to enjoy a comfortable and beautiful living space.
Different Home Styles
Unlike the mobile homes of yore, today’s manufactured homes look like traditional houses. The wide range of architectural styles ranges from traditional ranch plans to classic coastal styles to sleek modern options. As you shop for your new home, keep manufactured homes’ diverse exterior options in mind and let your sense of style shine.
Spacious Floor Plans
Manufactured homes make affordable housing comfortable. The average manufactured home offers homeowners 1,500 sq. ft. of space to work with and sleek open floor plans. People can live how they want in manufactured homes, without feeling cramped.
Clayton Homes, for example, builds manufactured and modular homes with bedrooms that can fit a king-sized bed, has plenty of storage and bathrooms with luxurious garden tubs. Unlike tiny houses, double- and triple-wide manufactured homes give growing families with pets a comfortable place to live.
A dog washing station in the Ashford Plan by Clayton Homes makes it easy to bathe pets without making too much of a mess of the home.
Pinterest-worthy home renovations cost a pretty penny, and typically go over budget. For home shoppers who want to stay on budget, but still want a beautiful new home, manufactured homes give them the best of all possible worlds.
When deciding on how their home should feel, new homeowners investing in manufactured homes can choose from a wide range of luxury fixtures and materials: counter surfaces include granite and quartz; flooring ranges from carpet to ceramic tile to wood. Trustworthy, brand-name appliances complete these homes.
Many manufactured homes communities put homes on oversized lots, so new homeowners can design an outdoor space that fits their life as closely as the inside of their home does. Homeowners with green thumbs can make their dream garden a reality.
Families that love to entertain can install decks and pools for the perfect summer barbecue. Pets can roam free in their lush new territory and children can play outside whenever they want. If you have your own land, then the possibilities on how to design your landscaping is further optimized.
Plenty of Light
Large windows and plenty of light accent the open floor plans in modern manufactured homes. Large, shuttered windows let sunlight into the home, creating a cheery environment. Many home manufacturers offer skylights as an upgrade feature in the bedrooms, so residents can spread out on a comfortable bed and gaze up at the night sky before drifting off to sleep.
A manufactured home is more than a house; it is your dream home. In addition to the many luxury features that now come standard in manufactured and modular homes, builders are increasingly offering more customization options to homeowners. The affordable nature of these houses allows people to invest in custom features that make the space their own.
Living in a manufactured or modular home is a comfortable and restful experience. The wealth of luxury features and upgrades in these homes makes it easy for homeowners to stay flexible with their budget while buying a home they love.
