It may not be the Oscars, but for manufactured home builders the Manufactured Housing Institute’s Annual Manufactured Home Design Awards are a pretty big deal. Awards are given for several different categories ranging from tiny homes to top interior designers. And, as always, we wanted to share with you a look at this year’s mid-size manufactured home winner, the 2018 new manufactured home design from Champion Home Builders.
The Kingsbrook 34 By Champion Home Builders
This year’s new manufactured home design winner comes from Silvercrest, a division of Champion Home Builders. Manufactured Housing describes The Kingsbrook 34 as having a unique California Bungalow concept that offers tons of curb appeal.
Farmhouse Style Creates an Inviting Home
Open Living Space
The living room, dining room, and kitchen all blend together to form an open living space that is very popular with families today. The entire interior is drywalled and is light and bright thanks to the many windows, including the transom windows over the fireplace.
I love these ceilings so much!
Upscale Kitchen Design
Our favorite room in this manufactured home is the kitchen. Rather than the standard rectangle kitchen island, there is an option to feature a square island. Both offer plenty of space for eating but also utilizes all four sides of the island. The sink, dishwasher, microwave oven, and a wine rack make great use of the area.
Add to that all the additional storage space in this farmhouse style kitchen and you have the perfect kitchen.
Surprising Master Suite
We have to say we were a little surprised by the master suite. The room could have used the same ceiling design that was used in the living area since the transom windows were there anyway. At the very least, trey ceilings could have added some style to the room. However, the placement of the windows does allow for the furniture to be moved around which is always a good thing!
The master suite continues the farmhouse style with the choice of tile colors and white cabinetry. However, the medicine cabinet attached to the wall beside the beautiful his and her sinks takes away from the look of the space. We’re not sure if that is a factory-feature or a designer’s touch. Either way, it’s not working for us.
We do like the size and placement of the soaker tub. Many of the recent homes we have seen are placing the tub as the centerpiece of the room and including windows around them which doesn’t seem to be very practical. Even with shades or one-way window film it can make a person nervous (or am I the only one?).
The high placed windows over the tub allow for light without intruding and are just right for the room.
Options Galore for the Award-Winner
Depending on your budget this new manufactured home design offers options for everyone. For example, you can choose the placement of the tub, the size of the vanity, and whether you want a separate shower in the master bath.
You can also choose a traditional work center in the kitchen or the square multi-function island seen above.
Finally, you can include the built-in entertainment center but it isn’t necessary if builtins aren’t your thing.
New Manufactured Home Design is Inspiring
As you can see from this new manufactured home design, builders are working very hard to offer new and inspired designs. This manufactured home will fit nicely into any stick-built housing community.
