If you’re an HGTV fan, then you probably know Chip and Joanna Gaines, the fun-loving couple starring on the hit show, ‘Fixer Upper’. They turn the worst house on the street into a spectacular home for families across Waco, Texas.
Their trademarked farmhouse style has influenced design trends across the board, and manufactured housing is no exception. Today’s buyers want eco-friendly housing and nature-inspired themes. And now, they can have all of that at the affordable prices offered by manufactured housing.
The 2017 Louisville Manufactured Housing Show featured homes that matched customer preferences, such as:
- Bathrooms with glass enclosed shower doors and elements of nature-like pebble designs.
- Modern ‘farm-house’ design with living wood details on countertops, walls and sliding doorways.
With the manufactured housing industry offering more choices than ever before, people are starting to take notice. In fact, two of the largest manufactured home consumers are millenials and the 55+ generations. Both looking for affordable single-family housing. And the new designs appeal to everyone, no matter the age.
Much like the homes on the beloved show ‘Fixer Upper’, these new manufactured homes feature rustic details like shiplap, farmhouse sinks, along with light fixtures made from mason jars and other rustic items.
Open floor plans create bright and spacious rooms that carry the deisgn with wide-plank rustic wood surfaces on counters, floors and more. Other home features included sliding barn doors, free-standing tubs and upgraded fixtures.
Because these homes are still constructed mostly in a factory, you can expect that they will be more eco-friendly and cost-effective than their site-built counterparts.
The homes on display in Louisville helped dispell some long-held myths about not only the quality of manufactured housing, but what it can offer to consumers.
