How to Upgrade Your Manufactured Home Without Breaking the Bank

Posted: September 30, 2022 by Jacobsen Homes

When you purchase a home, you’re making a major investment in your future. Manufactured houses can lessen the financial burden of that investment as a more affordable path to home ownership, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on important details or style. At Jacobsen Homes, we offer a wide variety of finishes and upgrades that can help customize your manufactured home to better suit your style and budget. Not sure how to upgrade your home without getting in over your head with costs? Here are a few ideas. 

Focus Upgrades on High Traffic Rooms

If you have a limited upgrade budget and want to get the most bang for your buck, consider only choosing upgrades in the rooms of your manufactured home that see the highest traffic. Focusing on these higher traffic rooms means you and your family will get to spend more time enjoying the upgrades you choose, and your guests will get to enjoy the unique touches our upgrade options provide as well. 

Consider narrowing your upgrades to areas like your family room, the kitchen and dining room, or a shared multi-purpose room and go all-in on a few key upgrades that will make your daily life easier and more enjoyable, like countertops, lighting fixtures, or a beautiful fireplace design

Pay Attention to the Details

For homeowners with limited budgets but a desire to add more of their own personality into the build, focusing on the details can be an excellent way to upgrade without spending too much. Hardware upgrades are an excellent way to add a pop or modernize the look of your home while staying within a set cost. Choose a metal finish or solid color that correlates well with the rest of the room’s decor to create a unified look. 

Choose Beautiful Flooring for the Wow Factor

When deciding what upgrades will provide the best value to your home, there’s one that stands out among the rest — flooring. If you can only afford one upgrade in your manufactured home budget, we recommend choosing a flooring upgrade. While it may seem like a more costly upgrade upfront, the results are truly stunning, and flooring upgrades work well with any of our available floor plans

Flooring color and material can set the tone for your entire home and help you determine what interior design direction you wish to go. Choose from vinyl, tile, and moisture resistant plank flooring in a variety of beautiful colors to create the perfect atmosphere for your home.
