When Rich and Sue decided to retire to the California Coast they did it in style. Their modern manufactured home kitchen remodel is gorgeous!
Originally from Iowa, the couple dreamed of warm sandy beaches on the California Coast. Unfortunately, the housing prices in California can put the brakes on many people’s dream. Rich and Sue did what millions of people are doing all across the country, they opted for a lower-priced manufactured home in sunny San Marcos.
Choosing a manufactured home at half the cost per square foot of a site-built home allowed the couple an opportunity to create a retirement home of their dreams.
Experts Help Create Modern Manufactured Home Kitchen Remodel
The kitchen in Rich and Sue’s California manufactured home had bright purple walls, original cabinets, and a circular layout so they brought Home Remodeling Center aboard to design and implement their modern manufactured home kitchen remodel.
Here is the kitchen before the remodel:
Oftentimes, it’s more cost efficient to hire a designer to help plan a new kitchen. Experience and contractor connections can reduce remodeling issues and make the process easier for homeowners in a new town. Larger remodeling contractors often have professional designers on staff to help homeowners design their dream kitchens because it reduces homeowner stress and makes the process easier for the contractors, too.
While we are huge fans of DIY mobile home remodeling, we realize that hiring experts can make a project easier and less stressful, especially for people that are moving to a whole new state. Kitchen remodels are especially tricky as no one wants to deal without a functioning kitchen for long.
Modern Manufactured Home Kitchen Remodel: Unique Lighting Creates Awesome Light Show
Having an open and airy kitchen was important for the couple. The first things to go during demolition were a half wall that separated the kitchen from the living room and an oddly shaped peninsula that boxed in the kitchen.

With the half-wall removed they could install a large island. The rich gray island has ample room for prep work in and an overhang large enough for four bar stools. It is topped with a quartz with some enticing movement to create a great focal point for the space.
The perimeter cabinets are white to keep the kitchen light and bright. The glass and stone backsplash blends the gray and white cabinets with the quartz.
The gorgeous pendants cast an unexpected light show on the ceiling.
The various gray tones are gorgeous! Gray is a versatile color for walls, ceilings, floors, and cabinetry. It can both lighten a room and darken a room depending on what tone you choose.
