FAQ Series: Can I Customize the Design and Layout?
A huge turn-off and massive misconception about manufactured and modular homes is that you cannot customize them.
Customization plays a vital role in creating a space that reflects your unique personality and style.
We’re here to correct the misconception because manufactured and modular home builders are forever expanding their horizons.
They’re creating a new type of home that offers all the custom perks of site-built homes.
We’re breaking down four of the main areas where you’ll find in-depth customization options.
1) Flexible Floor Plans
One of the greatest advantages is there are many floor plans that offer design modifications.
Many think there is a small handful of preset floor plans, with no changeable options or alternatives, luckily, that’s just not true.
These modifications and alternatives could look like adding or expanding on a living area, reconfiguring a layout, or simply rearranging minor details.
Manufacturers often add options on their factory floor plans, so you can easily visualize and customize your dream home that fits your lifestyle.
So, less time with an engineer and more time daydreaming about your home!
2) Interior and Exterior Finishes
Manufacturers have expanded options so you can truly have a stylish home.
Boring, outdated finishes like plain matte-colored siding and chrome-plated faucets are nowhere to be found in today’s homes!
The customization possibilities are vast, from selecting materials such as flooring, countertops, and cabinetry, to choosing paint colors and exterior siding, skirting, and dormers
You can achieve your desired aesthetic, whether that be a sleek contemporary vibe or a rustic charm feel, you’ll find what you’re looking for.
3) Custom Additions and Expansions
Contrary to popular belief, manufactured and modular homes can be expanded on or enhanced easily over time.
That garage you wanted but didn’t have the budget for when you first bought your home, easy peasy!
Room add-ons, garages, porches, and decks are just a few of the ways you can expand on your ever-changing idea of your dream home.
This flexibility allows your home to grow and change over time, the same way you and your family do.
4) Accessibility Features
We can almost guarantee that you’ve never heard that manufactured homes offer accessibility features.
Homes that are tailored to accommodate individuals with specific mobility needs can make life a little easier.
Customizations such as wider doorways, wheelchair ramps, grab bars, and walk-in showers can be incorporated to ensure comfort and accessibility for everyone.
The days when manufactured and modular homes were viewed as cookie-cutter structures lacking customization potential are long gone.
From personalized finishes to customized living spaces, there’s something that will suit everyone.
And keep in mind, we’ve only scratched the surface of how much there really is to customize a manufactured home.
