Want to know more about the kitchen features and options you’ll find in Clayton’s manufactured homes? We’re looking at six ways you can really personalize your new space.

When you’re looking for a home, you probably want a large, comfortable living space. And sure, a relaxing primary retreat is nice to have too. But let’s be real, the kitchen can be the difference between your dream home and a total dud.

After all, the kitchen is an important part of any home. Whether you’re downing coffee while packing lunches, lingering over a weekend dinner or crafting the perfect midnight snack, you’re going to spend a lot of time in this space.

At Clayton, we get that. It’s why we think about both the function and style of the homes we build, including when it comes to the kitchen. So let’s jump in and check out our trendy kitchen details that just might have you volunteering to host Thanksgiving this year.

1. Spacious Kitchen Islands

It’s no surprise that kitchen islands are a top must-have home feature. Whether you’re eating a quick breakfast, prepping a big meal or need extra storage, an island helps you do it all. And with plenty of options like contrasting colors, shelves or room for seating, Clayton’s kitchen islands make a big visual impact, too.

2. Trendy Kitchen Backsplashes

A beautiful backsplash can set the tone for your whole kitchen. And as natural materials have become more and more popular in home decor, a backsplash also adds texture and depth to your space. Trendy options include that highly Instagrammable white subway tile, a continuous marble look or colorful mosaic patterns. In Clayton’s homes, you’ll also find brick, patterned tin or shiplap designs.

3. Contrasting Cabinets and Islands

Now, let’s talk about the colors we use in our kitchen cabinets and islands. We have the super popular sage green. We have that shade of blue. We also have white, light wood tones and even black. And you’ll even see them in different combinations in many of our home models, for example, a colorful kitchen island paired with more neutral cabinets.

4. Quartz-Style Countertops

At Clayton, we want your new home to be beautiful, and ready for all the memories you’re going to make. That’s why we use laminate countertops in our kitchens, so you know they’re going to be durable and strong. It also helps make them more affordable, so you can enjoy the look of quartz at a price you’ll like too.

5. Tons of Storage Options

So, we’ve established that Clayton’s kitchens have style, but now let’s talk about where you’re going to keep your stuff! We’re all about the options, whether you need a spot to stash your air fryer when you’re not using it or a place for all the staples you buy in bulk. Alongside plentiful cabinets, you’ll find cute open shelving, handy drawers in islands and walk-in pantries. Some of our models even offer options like a coffee bar area or built-in wine rack!

6. Farmhouse Sinks

Whether you prefer stainless steel or the classic porcelain, there’s just something about a farmhouse sink that really ties a kitchen together. (Especially when you pair it with a gooseneck faucet). Plus, it gives you a lot more space to take care of those dirty dishes!
