What Accessibility Features Are Available in Clayton Homes?

We want our homes to be affordable, long-lasting and accessible. Learn more about the accessibility options Clayton has to offer.

We talk a lot about the different customization options that are available in our Clayton homes, and those options definitely include features to assist with accessibility and mobility.

We encourage you to discuss your needs with a home consultant at your local home center to learn about your options, as the availability of specific features can vary by home model or region. Also, many of our homes have an open floor plan design, but you may also be looking for a home that’s a certain size or has a certain layout.

Features Focused on Mobility and Accessibility

Your consultant at the home center you’re working with will partner with the facility that’s building your home, and our Home Innovation Lab if needed, to adjust the model you’ve chosen based on your specific requests. Here is a list of some of the features we may have available to make your home more accessible:

  • 36” wide hallways
  • Lever door handles
  • Large showers with blocking in the wall for future support bars, or bars included during construction
  • Shower seats
  • Doorbells and thermostats installed at a lower height
  • Lower closet shelving and hanging rods
  • An accessible microwave installed in a base cabinet or island
  • Concentration on an open floor plan design, including the ability to build a home without a kitchen island in most cases

It’s also important to know that these options may cost extra themselves or could result in additional costs, depending on the features you select. For example, a wider doorway could mean the home needs a larger door, which may cost more. Your home consultant can help guide you during this part of the home buying process and answer any questions you may have.

When to Consider Using a Third Party

If you need an accessibility ramp built to the entrance of your home, we recommend using a third-party professional. At this time, Clayton does not build ramps for our homes at our building facilities, and our delivery teams do not install them. However, your home center consultant may be able to help you find a professional and can help you understand the requirements and costs involved. A third party can then build and install an accessibility ramp once your home is delivered and set up, as would be the case with a carport or deck. Using a professional ensures the addition to your new home is built safely and complies with the necessary building codes.
