Welcome Home

Whether you’re looking for a new home or ways to make your current digs more inviting, here are a few home design trends you can benefit from:

Smarter Homes

Voice-activated assistants, like Amazon Alexa and Google Home can find and play music, control lighting and more. As major appliance and HVAC manufacturers begin integrating with these systems, their usefulness improves substantially.

Back to White

Over the last decade, stainless steel appliances have become the overwhelming choice for new homeowners, but more and more buyers are once again choosing white.

Tone-on-Tone Accents

Rooms bathed in white can feel clean and fresh. But too much white feels clinical. By bringing in cream, egg shell, light tan or natural linen hues, you can create a rich, warm look.

Fresh First Impressions

It’s easy to make any front entryway feel more welcoming by adding a brightly colored splash of wallpaper, a big bold mirror, or a table with a tray for keys and coins above and another for shoes below.

Try It Before You Buy It

From eyeglass frames to home design, consumers welcome the opportunity to virtually see how their choices will look prior to ordering.

The UMH online design center invites visitors to experiment with  various home manufacturers and models, textures, finishes and fixtures—and even take a virtual tour—before they make their final purchase decisions. You can incorporate some of your favorite home design trends into your new UMH manufactured home with minimal cost and maximum impact.

Their Dream Home Checklist informs homebuyers about add-ons they may consider to be “must-haves.” The list includes items like: Front and back decks, a covered porch, double driveway and even a storage shed.

“It gives home buyers the confidence they need to make their move into a new UMH home, says Sam Landy, UMH President & CEO. “It’s just one of the ways we’re putting our customers first.”
