This January I attended the 2018 Louisville Manufactured Housing Show. This is an industry trade show, put on specifically for manufactured housing professionals. It’s a great opportunity for those that work in the industry to see what is new for 2018. One of the many things I saw was stunning, luxury mobile homes. In fact, these beautiful manufactured homes were outstanding! They would make anyone want to buy a new home!
Luxury Mobile Home Kitchens
For instance, new mobile homes have gorgeous, spacious kitchens. Some of the kitchens come with upgraded stainless steel appliances, center islands, extra kitchen storage and big, well-designed cupboards. Not only that, but I saw additional eating nooks, built-in pantries, and lovely tile backsplashes. In fact, these luxury mobile homes have all the upgrades someone could want.
Pictured right is a home from The Commodore Corporation. Would you guess that it is a manufactured home?
The home manufacturers have been listening to what people want, and it shows. The new designs are full of modern conveniences. Pictured below is the Zenith by Adventure Homes. Check out those eye-catching countertops!
Due to the popularity of practical, but attractive, spaces, the manufacturers have added the small touches, too. Most of the homes I saw had laminate floors with pleasing wood floor patterns. They boasted modern cabinet hardware and faucets and wooden finishes that were built to last.
Equally, much care has gone into making the bedroom a relaxing place to be. The 2018 luxury mobile homes have large windows, extra spacious closets, and plush carpeting. I saw some smart floorplans that cleverly kept the master bedroom far from the busy parts of the home. While there were homes with several bedrooms, not all of these luxury mobile homes were large. In fact, some homes were smaller single wides, designed to fit in smaller park lots. And yet, they still had tons of gorgeous features. The Clayton Delight, shown below, is a two-bedroom single wide showstopper!
Champion Homes recently came out with the New Era Radiant Bath Spa. Take a look at their photo below – don’t you want to just soak in that big tub?
Again, you saw the extra thought going into the bathrooms. Some had built-in linen closets or towel shelves. Many had walk-in showers with oversized showerheads. Much like the kitchens, good-looking cabinetry, faucets, and hardware abounded.
Luxury Mobile Homes for All Ages
As a consequence of listening to their buyers, mobile home manufacturers are also adding special features depending on the age of the buyer. In some cases, they are focusing on the millennial buyer. In other cases, they are adding features for older buyers who are looking to age in place. Examples might be wheelchair widened doorways, safety bars in restrooms and non-barrier showers.
Other features are less about age and more about being up-to-date. Indeed, everyone loves new features like sliding barn doors, built-in desks and gas fireplaces. For pet lovers we saw mudroom entrances with dog washing baths!
With this in mind, mobile homes are becoming not only a smart choice for consumers’ wallets but also for their sense of the good life!
