Mobile homes are affordable and built with quality materials in a controlled environment. But they do have a more standardized look than stick-built homes. If you are looking for ways to lose the manufactured home look, but aren’t sure where to start, these 4 suggestions are a great place to begin.
Add Some Curb Appeal
Adding curb appeal is probably one of the easiest ways to lose the manufactured home look. You can plant trees and shrubs, dress up your patio or porch, or do some landscaping around the home to create a whole new look.
Update Those Walls
Whether your mobile home is full of older dark paneling or you have the dreaded vinyl walls with batten strips, updating those walls will change the look of your home almost immediately. Keep in mind, it won’t be an easy process, but the final result is so worth it.
Upgrade the Doors
One of the biggest home improvements an owner can do to add value to their home and help to lose the manufactured home look is to upgrade the doors. Changing out the interior and exterior doors from the standard installed ones can be a pretty big project, but will dramatically improve your home’s look.
Add a Garage
A garage helps to create a more cohesive look plus adds more square footage to your home which increases its value. Whether you attach the garage directly to the home and create an inside entryway into your home, or add a breezeway connecting the manufactured home to the garage, they both help to give a more stick-built home look.
