Mobile Home Remodeling – 6 Renovation Ideas for Manufactured Homes
November 2nd, 2020
If you own a manufactured home, you may be wondering how to make your home an even better place to live – or you may be looking for inspiration for your home remodel. In this blog from Community West Bank, we’ll discuss several renovations that can transform your home – and make it better for you and your family.
We’ll also discuss how much ROI (return on investment) you can get on these upgrades, based on surveys from Remodeling Magazine. Let’s get started!
1. A New Front Door
Your front door is the facade of your manufactured home, and the first thing any visitor will see. If you have a worn-out, unappealing, or outdated front door, replacing it is a great way to add more visual appeal to your home. On average, this renovation has an ROI of between 72% to 100% or more, depending on the materials used.
2. Replacement Siding
Worn-down siding can make your manufactured home look unappealing. Siding usually needs to be replaced every 10-20 years, depending on the material. Whether you choose vinyl siding, wood siding, or even stone veneer, you can add a lot of value to your home – these projects have an ROI of up to 84%, depending on the material.
3. A New Roof
A new roof doesn’t just add beauty to your home, but also protects it from leaks and damage. Most asphalt shingle roofs last between 20-30 years. If your roof is older than this, it may look more worn-down, and also be more prone to leaks. Consider replacing it – the ROI on this project is about 71%.
4. A Kitchen Overhaul
Who doesn’t want a new kitchen? Changing your kitchen layout can add a lot of convenience to your life, and replacing outdated appliances also makes it easier to cook and manage day-to-day tasks.
This mobile home remodeling project is also a great way to add value to your home, with an average ROI of up to 79% for minor kitchen remodels. Major remodels have an ROI of about 68%, due to higher fixed costs associated with demolition and replacing appliances.
5. A New Deck or Porch
Most manufactured homes are just begging for a porch or deck. Adding a covered or uncovered outdoor living space to your home is a great way to expand your overall space, and enjoy the great outdoors during the warmer months.
However, you will want to check with your mobile home community to see if this is allowed, and ensure that you have enough room around your manufactured home to install your deck, porch, or patio properly.
6. A Bathroom Update
Tired of your stained tub, worn-down sink, and outdated tile floor? Renovating your bathroom is a great option if you want to get started with mobile home remodeling. You can create a more modern, convenient bathroom with features like hidden shelving, water, and energy-efficient fixtures, and much more – and enjoy an ROI of up to 70%.
