Making A Home Your Family Will Love

When it comes to creating a gorgeous interior space, your home will only be as beautiful as your family allows it to be. If your children don't respect the space, your home will quickly fall back into disrepair, which is why I started focusing more and more on home and garden a few years ago. I was committed to creating a great space that was just as clean and gorgeous as it was functional, and I was really surprised to see how much of a difference my efforts made. Within a few short years, my place really seemed a lot more open, airy, and inviting. Check out this blog for great ideas on making a family-oriented home.

Features To Focus On While At The Double-Wide Mobile Home Dealer

by Alice Howard

Double-wide mobile homes can be comfortable, convenient, and affordable places to live. If you are thinking of purchasing a brand new one, then you'll want to visit a mobile home dealer near you and do some shopping. Most dealers carry a good selection of models, so it's mostly about finding the double-wide that feels right for you and best serves your needs. Here are the features to focus on during this process.

Floor Plan 

Double-wide mobile homes are significantly larger than single-wides, which means that the manufacturers can do a lot more with the layout. You will see somewhere the kitchen is central in the home, with the living room off to one side and the bedrooms to the other. You'll see others where the living room is central, with the kitchen on one end and bedrooms on the other. Of course, there's also a variety as to how the bedrooms are placed and where the bathroom is located. As you walk through various mobile homes, consider how the layout will work for your lifestyle and decor.

Finish Quality

The pain, counters, cabinet, and other internal elements in the mobile home are referred to as "finishes." It is important to make sure you're happy with the quality of these finishes. In general, you want to buy the best quality you can afford because the finishes will last longer. Tile flooring, for instance, is better quality than vinyl. Stone counters are better quality than laminate, and so forth.

Window Durability

A mobile home should have good windows. You don't want them to suffer damage in a storm, leak, or allow too much heat to escape in the winter. Look for a home that has double-pane windows at the very least. Low-e windows, which are treated to reflect more heat, are even better. 

Bathroom Features

Double-wide mobile homes are usually large enough to have more features in the bathroom. Some may have extended, his-and-hers vanities. Others may have spa-style tubs. These features are not necessary, and if you're on a tight budget, they can be some of the first things you cut. However, they can be nice luxuries to include if you're able.

Hopefully you now have a better idea of what features to focus on when shopping for a mobile home. Look for a double-wide mobile home dealer near you. They can help you pick the right home for your family's needs.
