Designing the kitchen that is perfect for you and your family starts with the layout. The great news about custom modular homes is that you can literally customize your own mobile home online or with the help of a Homes Direct customer service professional. You won’t need to rely on architectural drawings or theories about your kitchen. Visual examples and on-site models can help guide you to that perfect kitchen with all the right options.

That being said, custom modern modular homes can be designed with open floor plans or privacy walls. Those options are great starting points because they play into the type of atmosphere you prefer.

Many open floor plans opt for center islands, breakfast counters or allow for eat-in kitchen options. Considering the kitchen is often the most used room in the home, they can be both social and functional. That’s why comfortable lengths of counter space where people can pull up a stool and enjoy coffee or a meal are excellent options to include.

That idea also holds over to food preparation space. Your layout should include enough counter space to put everyday items on, prepare meals and then have a little extra just in case you need it. Consider these custom kitchen items that can improve your experience:

  • Cabinets: Options range from traditional to modern styles. Many home buyers are opting for glass cabinets that allow them to subtly showcase family china and other items.
  • Recessed Lighting: This option has been integrated into ceiling designs. However, many home chefs place a high value on recessed lighting under cabinets that illuminate counters without making the room too bright.
  • Pot Racks: Overhead pot racks were trending high just a few years ago. Their functionality has not changed. If you like the convenience or prefer to highlight a great set of pots and pans, overhead pot racks are a win.
  • Backsplash: Custom made mobile homes offer new buyers soup-to-nuts design options. That backsplash between the counter and cabinets doesn’t need to be ordinary. Consider accent options that will set your kitchen apart.

The kitchens in custom design modular homes also offer cutting-edge options that include the latest appliances, technology and visually appealing accents.

Popular Kitchen Options

Ranked among the more popular kitchen options are stone countertops that include marble, quartz, soapstone and to some degree ceramic. The deep luster, a wide range of finishes and colors has stone products trending. While their cost can run a tad higher than some other countertop materials, their long-lasting beauty has them in demand.

Along with stone countertops, the center island has emerged as a must among custom modern modular home buyers. Many home chefs value the flexibility they offer in terms of additional prep space and providing a place for children, family members and friends to pull up a chair.
