Bathrooms in Manufactured Homes That Will WOW You!

When it comes to a home, there are so many places and spaces to focus on. Of course, the kitchen is a focal point for many. And if you’re the homeowner, the primary suite is also very important. For those who enjoy entertaining others, the living room is a space you’ll revisit time and time again. But one space in the home that might go overlooked even though it’s touched by everyone who lives there and visits…is the bathroom!  

We’ve gathered some of our current favorite bathrooms in our factory-built homes. Let us know if you have any favorites in the comments below!

At Silvercrest Village in California, View Our Homes Before Buying! 

The concept of “try before you buy” isn’t new at all. Whether it comes to more simple purchases such as clothing and food sampling at the market, or more monumental purchases such as a home, getting a feel for a purchase can add to your confidence and more. This is why we’re so excited to announce an innovative experience we’re providing for potential customers in California!  

The Silvercrest Village is an on-site addition to our Corona, CA manufacturing facility, and it’s open to the public! Open primarily during the week and on select weekend days, the Silvercrest Village features models from our Silvercrest brand and they’re fully open to your eyes and inquiries. Let’s learn about the models available for viewing and hours of operation.  

Silvercrest Village hosts an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), 2 park models, and a multi-section manufactured home! One of the park models is meant to be placed in a park and/or a resort for optimal functionality. An ADU, also known as a backyard house, guest house, or casita, is a small home that can be built in a factory and placed on the same lot alongside another, larger single-family home, or as a part of a community development. They are self-sufficient dwellings and contain a kitchen, a living area, bathroom facilities, and a bedroom. A park model is a perfect tiny getaway with nearly 400 square feet of living space, full-size appliances, built-in storage cabinets, covered porches and attractive architectural features. 

Last but not least, a manufactured home is an offsite-built home that is more economical, energy efficient and easier to attain than the site-built alternative.

So, at the Silvercrest Village, you’ll be able to get a taste of all of these! Let’s learn more about when visitors are welcome!  

ADDRESS: 299 N. Smith Ave., Corona, CA, 92878 

WEEKDAYS: Silvercrest Village is open throughout the week on Monday-Friday, from 9AM – 4:00PM. When you arrive to our office, you’ll get handed a set of keys for a self-guided tour through our models. Feel free to ask any of the on-site professionals any questions you may have.

6 Standout Showers in Manufactured Homes You NEED to See! 

There are many details people look in to when shopping for a new home. The exterior, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, floor plan and more. You might have read our blog post dedicated to all things range hoods, which have stylistically come a long way since just being there to filter air! Another home feature people are increasingly interested in? Showers! And we get it: when you come home from a long day out in the elements, the shower might as well be calling your name! So having a shower that checks the boxes is important to the feel of the whole bathroom.

Up Your Curb Appeal: Dormers, Decks, Porches & More for Manufactured Homes 

Your manufactured or modular home exterior can stun just like any other home…here’s how! 

We recently received a comment from a reader on one of our blogs asking a very great question. “What is the best way to make it look more like a site-built home?” We’re sure lots of you might be wondering the same thing! This might come as a surprise, but there are many options for upping the curb appeal of your factory-built home. Let’s get into it! 


Dormers are an extension in the sloping roof for traditional windows rather than skylights. Dormers have many benefits to add for homeowners of manufactured and modular homes. First, they accentuate the exterior of a home.  

Check out the dormers on the white home! Talk about elevating a home!

And while they do make a roof line more attractive, dormers are also constructed to create a space for the windows.  


Awnings can add a special type of sophistication to a mobile home or manufactured and modular home. Want to give your home that “site-built” feel? You’ll definitely want to consider adding an awning where it would work!  

Feast your eyes on the Orion! The awning is particularly amazing! 

For example, in the Orion (pictured above), the awning is placed over the center of the home front where typically nothing is installed due to the marriage line.  This creates a symmetrical look to the exterior, making it architecturally pleasing. 


You can add decks onto your manufactured or modular home to offer more dual indoor-outdoor space and make it look just as nice as any site-built home.   

Before you start, make sure you get whatever licensing you need to complete this project. And to avoid penalties, make sure your project aligns with coding and other local building requirements. If you’re renting land or in a community, you’ll need to check with the owner to make sure you can lay the foundation for your deck.

NOTE: Want a manufactured home but not sure where to put it? Read the blog here


Porches can come from the factory, but also can be built on-site. What’s more, is porches are a relatively easy one-stop shop for adding curb appeal to your prefabricated home. Whenever you think of a beautiful home, you likely picture it with a porch no matter how it was built. A quality porch has the potential to help your home fool anyone! 

To figure out if the porch for your dream manufactured or modular home would be built in the factory or on-site, you’ll want to get in touch with a local independent retailer who can talk to you about your options. 

Garages & Carports 

Adding a garage or a carport is one of the top ways to give your prefab home more curb appeal and fool just about anyone. Not to mention, this tip is equally helpful for you as it is impressive to others: your vehicles will have a place to stay and be protected! 

Follow us on Instagram to see photos of home with garages and carports!

Most carports are mounted from the side of the mobile home, where the roof meets the exterior wall, and are supported via beams on the opposite side of the driveway. This provides ample room for a car to park safely underneath.     

There are different types of garage options you can choose from, depending on variables like land size and more. Learn more specific details about how to add a garage to your manufactured home by reading the blog HERE


Adding and choosing skirting with a personal touch is a great way to make your manufactured or modular home your own while also increasing the design savvy nature and curb appeal of your home! Skirting is amazing in that it helps a factory-built home look “finished” and high-end. While many folks choose the classic white, there are also lots of options outside of it that can add some pizazz! Material options for skirting include: 

  • Vinyl Skirting For Mobile Homes 
  • Simulated “Rock” Skirting 
  • Faux Stone Skirting 
  • Concrete Skirting 
  • Brick Skirting 
  • Wood Skirting 
  • Metal Skirting 
  • Foam Skirting
