Interior Color Trends to Consider 

Stay in-the-know with these updated color trends for a chic interior! 

Ready to give your new home some pizazz or wanting to spruce up your existing home with something new? Color is the perfect way to say a lot without necessarily doing a lot. Are you wondering which colors are particularly standing out these days? This blog will provide the perfect colorful inspiration when choosing colors to use throughout your home interior. Let’s get into it!  

Trend #1: MAKE IT POP 

For the bold players out there, you’ll be glad to hear that poppy tones of magenta, orange and red are taking the front stage! The key to pulling this color trend off is through the art of placement. Have an overall warm-toned kitchen? Find a warm-toned bright orange piece of furniture you’d like to stand out! The Pika SCC643 (pictured above) does a great job using this trend. 

You can also choose the opposite route and let the bold color be your base, accenting with neutral tones of white, silver, dark wood tones or even another bold color! Orange and red can definitely work together with the right pieces and inspiration. With these tips, you can decorate your manufactured our modular home to feel juuuuust right every time you walk in!  

We love the pops of subtle orange throughout the Cypress! Read more on this model here


The influence nature has on interior design will always be timeless, and green, a color synonymous with nature and the beauty of the natural world, remains one of the most popular colors to use in Interior Design in 2023 and completes an ever-popular Biophilic Design Trend. The Innovation 1668H (pictured above) is a model that implements this trend with beauty! With Champion Homes, you don’t have to worry about not being able to stay on trend in a prefab home. We’ve got the options you need! 

According to our Interior Design Manager Tammie D., greens with a blue base like our Rocky River are impactful and pair well with soft tones of clay, white, and grey while balancing out with a lighter flooring selection to complete a calming stage for the homeowner.  If your style is more modern, consider using green as an accent to lighter wood tones and black. More into Farmhouse styling? Pair green with warm wood tones, white, and accents of black.

Check out the backsplash tile in the Paris! Oui oui!!

NOTE: Need to figure out which design style speaks to you most? Read the blog!  


This is the trend that never really goes out of style. People love calm tones because of their adaptability! You can have basically any design style and still find a way to work neutrals into your interior design and décor. This trend also has many options: browns, beiges, “greige,” ivories and more! With this trend, you can really show that “muted” does NOT have to mean “boring.” 

This trend also pairs really well with another trend in this blog: greenery! If you’re taking the calm and muted route, pair the color scheme with some plants and flowers as the perfect accent. Trust us, the light tan cabinets will pop even more with a bird’s nest fern sitting on the counter! We absolutely love the Transitions-20727 (pictured below) for its take on this trend.

Trend #4: Dramatic Dark Accents 

The Mammoth Park! Yep, it’s worth the wow!

If you want your home to look like a delicious chocolate bar tastes, you’re likely into dark tones and accents. Darker tones are a great way to add character and mood to any space. They also help to bring warmth to a home.  

You can also take this route paired with another trend on this list…yep, you guessed it: nature-inspired! Think terracotta browns, eucalyptus greens and deep tans. Another bold idea when you’re going with dark tones? Paint the ceiling! It might sound crazy, but it can really work! Overall, if done correctly, a dark toned interior can be really calming.  

Who’s ready to get colorful? Whichever color route you take, remember to make it your own! Home décor is never fully finished, so if you make a decision you don’t like, you are always free to tweak as you see fit. Ready to find the Champion home for you?

Can you imagine the amount of kitchen appliances you can store? The details are impeccable. There’s a full wall ceramic backsplash, an island with seating, and black contemporary handles.

As you move from the kitchen to the den, you meet the dining room! The open concept keeps the entertaining space flowing from the chef’s station to the big game on the TV. Moving from the dining area, you step into the den space. The den can be blocked off by two large barn doors, keeping a contemporary farmhouse theme throughout this model. 

This space of the home is truly an entertainer’s DREAM!

The primary suite is next on our list. Not only is this space large, but it also lives up to the “suite” name. There is a massive walk-in closet right before you see the bathroom. This bath has a double vanity, back-lit LED mirrors, and glass shower with a full ceramic surround. This bathroom defines the term glamourous! 

Making our way to the other end of the home, we pass by the living room. Some key features here are the electric fireplace, built-in shelves with the entertainment center and three sizable windows. Not only will this room set the mood, but it also lets your interior design shine as you decorate. 

The built-in entertainment center is just one of the quality features you get in a Champion Home

Ending our tour in the laundry room. There are upper and lower cabinets that match the cabinets throughout the rest of the home. We also incorporated a laundry sink and window, perfect for any mudroom needs. This room has the potential to make laundry a lot more enjoyable.

Not Your Trailer Home Anymore: Meet the New Prefab Homes of Today 

If you hear “manufactured” and automatically think of a trailer from the 70s, read this blog to see what you’ve been missing from this updated industry! 

When some people think about the types of homes we build here at Champion Homes, they might envision old, bent-out trailers and want to avoid that like the plague. What those folks might be surprised to learn is how far manufactured housing has come! It’s quite an exciting path, actually.

Check out these vintage photos of our models dating back to the 60s and 70s!

How We Got to Where We Are: 

  • According to Construction Physics, in the 1910s and 1920s, car adoption was rapidly increasing. By 1925, cars in the U.S. had increased from 500,000 to 17.5 million cars in 15 years. 
  • Mobile homes as we know them today came about in 1926 with automobile-pulled trailers or “Trailer Coaches.” 
  • Trailer Coaches transitioned into mobile homes after a surge in interest during World War II. 
  • In 1976, a significant regulatory shift happened when the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development worked with the industry to enact the first manufactured housing construction code.  This code really put manufactured housing on the map.   It established the consistent construction parameters needed to improve overall quality and safety standards and did it at a federal level that works for all states.   
  • Things were further refined and improved throughout the 80’s and 90’s with more advanced developments around structural load paths, installation procedures and much more.  The codes continue to be advanced and improved even today through a robust collaboration process that occurs between federal agencies and industry experts using the latest in construction engineering and technology.  This ensures that manufactured homes will always be built for value, performance, and great looks. 
The Paris is a stunning modern home built in our Dresden, TN manufacturing facility.

What the “Big Change” Means for You: 

After the industry shift in 1976, companies such as Champion Homes went on a mission to transform our collective perception of manufactured housing by consistently building quality homes that are affordable, attainable and durable. The result is a manufactured housing industry that looks completely different from what you were seeing in the 20s through the 70s.  

The Aspire is built in our Sangerfield, NY manufacturing facility and is quite the looker!

Key Feature Updates and Changes 

So, what are some of the main differences between the mobile homes of before 1976 and manufactured homes built to more current codes? Thanks to the implementation of the HUD code, you can expect to see changes such as: 

  • Manufactured homes are wind-resistant. They are built to withstand similar forces as site-built homes and are as safe as site-built homes during a storm-even on the beaches. 
  • Manufactured homes are structurally sound. The federal HUD code established structural parameters for snow loads throughout the country.  This allows for the proper use of materials and assemblies to ensure a manufactured home can properly transfer heavy loads to foundations-even in the mountains. 
  • Manufactured homes provide for fire safety.  The manufactured homes of today are built with flame spread-resistant materials, smoke/carbon monoxide protection and, in some cases, fire sprinkler protection. 
  • Manufactured homes are more energy efficient.  Modern Federal codes have established provisions to ensure good thermal envelope efficiency and optimal use of heat and cooling equipment.  This keeps your operation costs low and your comfort level high. 
  • Manufactured homes are more material efficient.  Well thought out construction practices within the manufacturing environment ensure that material usage is optimized by recycling and reducing waste wherever possible. This keeps the materials in your home rather than in the landfill. 
  • Manufactured homes go through a detailed plan review and construction approval process.   Federal codes require that all homes designs be reviewed and approved by engineers before construction begins.  Federal and state inspectors then oversee all factory construction and site installation processes.  These procedures ensure that your home meets the safety and quality standards you expect.  

Under current HUD codes, manufactured homes can be installed on a variety of foundation types. From the efficiency offered with traditional manufactured home foundations to the anchored feeling of a permanent foundation just like a site-built home, Champion has a foundation system that works for you. Check out the building process in this video…it’s pretty cool!
