Practical Ideas to Update Your Manufactured Home

Posted by Tim on April 18, 2024

Modern manufactured homes offer the same comfort and beauty as traditional site-built homes and are made in a more environmentally friendly manner. For those who want an affordable home with a low-maintenance lifestyle, manufactured homes are a great option.

However, for those who have purchased or who already live in an older mobile home, perhaps you’ve been thinking of renovating. Remodeling a home of any kind takes a lot of time and work. It involves designing, planning, getting permits, and hiring qualified contractors.

A realistic budget can help you stay on track when remodeling or doing an addition to a mobile home, and there are a variety of factors to consider before beginning construction. Homeowners should check with their park management for approval before paying for plans.

If budget or park restrictions prohibit you from adding on to your home, there are multiple other ways to modernize and upgrade your home while increasing its value.

Doing a few interior upgrades, for instance, doesn’t have to be costly. Instead of a major renovation, upgrades might range from new flooring or replacing kitchen countertops to easier projects such as changing the doorknobs, faucets, and other hardware, or designing a modern accent wall in the family room.

On the exterior, other home improvement projects might include an expanded and covered porch, adding a deck, a garage, or upgrading your carport. Changing the siding of a home can also give a more modern, appealing look. Board and batten is a popular trend, and using stone or faux stone accents or house skirting also gives an inviting look to any home.

An easy change can be to paint the front door or replace it with a new full-size door if your home doesn’t have one. Potted plants and flowers also help welcome guests.

An additional way to elevate your home’s curb appeal is with new landscaping, from trees to colorful flowerbeds. Each mobile home park has its own rules about landscaping, so be sure to check with them first about any restrictions.

If your home doesn’t get much natural light, consider replacing the windows to allow in more light. Replacing old windows with energy-efficient dual-paned windows makes a difference not only aesthetically, but economically. Homeowners with newer windows can block the heat that comes in during the summer and trap the heat in the winter, typically resulting in lower utility bills.
