Tips for a Beautiful Prefab Home Exterior
Take advantage of being able to completely customize your prefab. Learn how to help your modular house stand out from the crowd and feel like home.
1 – Build a Front Porch
It cannot be overstated how completely a front porch will change the overall look of your modular home. Some home styles – seem incomplete without them, but adding a porch can give your home an inviting feeling while also adding extra living space.
2 – Have a Unique Front Door
The front door of a home can say a lot about the people who live there. Having a unique or decorative front door can be an inexpensive way to set your modular home apart from the other houses around you. Remember though that a front door is primarily functional, not decorative. Too much glass can pose a safety risk and if the door is too thin or doesn’t fit well in its frame, your house could be wasting a lot of energy.
3 – Don’t Forget The Paint!
Never underestimate how much a good paint job can change the look and feel of a house. For many people, paint is an afterthought, but it not only has a major effect on how your house looks, but the color of your home can actually influence your mood on a daily basis. After a long day at work, coming home and seeing welcoming colors that you love can make a subtle but substantial difference.
4 – Install Interesting Windows
Perhaps the easiest and least expensive change to make to your modular home is what sort of windows you want to have. Most manufacturers will give you an extensive list of choices, even with their standard plans. Having windows of different shapes and sizes on the front of your house can help the house look more interesting, but some modular home styles, like the Cape Cod style home, work better with very symmetrical looking fronts.
