Many of these design tricks that help make tiny homes functional, beautiful and efficient also make manufactured and modular homes so livable!
1. Sliding Doors
You can find sliding barn doors in Clayton Built™ home kitchens, bedrooms or flex spaces. Sliding barn doors and pocket doors don’t take up the valuable space needed to swing open a door.
2. Corner Storage Systems
Clever corner storage is used in tiny home designs to make sure every inch is maximized! In a manufactured or modular home, why have just a coatrack and waste space above and below? Here, good design incorporates extra storage to maximize valuable space!
3. To-the-Ceiling Storage
Optimizing wall space with storage all the way to the ceiling lets these small kitchens still fit all your dishes while keeping an open flow and feel!
4. Doorless Display Cabinets
Display storage above cabinets and counters helps draw the eye upward and make a space feel bigger!
5. Unexpected Storage Solutions
Picking up on the storage theme in small spaces? Manufactured and modular homes have found key ways to add storage space in unusual ways to take up less space and still provide room for your dishes and food!
6. Alternative Walls
A glass wall separates the living room from the hall without visually breaking up space. They key is letting in plenty of light to make the home feel bigger!
7. Built-In Features
A built-in cutting board or built-in dining nook lets you consolidate what you bring to a space while also letting you create multipurpose spaces. The built-in cutting board still acts as counter space and the built-in dining nook can dual as an entertainment/party area.
What else does that nook also add to your living space? You guessed it…MORE STORAGE!
8. Open Floor Plans
No matter the size of your home, an open floor plan makes it feel bigger! Open floor plans let more air flow through a home, feel lighter and make for more multipurpose spaces.
9. Big Window Proportions
Again, the key is that bigger windows let in more light and make your space feel bigger and less enclosed.
10. Multipurpose Spaces
While this utility room is great for storage, it can also become a small craft room, laundry room and being off of the kitchen, an oversized walk-in pantry…and if you need it, it can be all of those at once!
