1. Wide Frame Window Casing

Casing not only acts a seal against the outside elements but can also have a big impact on home’s look. If you enjoy a simple style but still want to bring attention to your manufactured home's windows, add wide frame casing for function and flare. This allows for a clean and traditional design that makes a statement.

2. Window Planters

If you have a green thumb or just enjoy having fresh flowers around, opt for planters underneath your windows. Like in The Southern Charm, flower boxes will give a cozy cottage feel and brighten up the exterior atmosphere of your home. We recommend landscaping or hanging and potted plans to add more greenery and vibrancy to your home.

3. Window Awning

Awnings over your windows not only help protect them from harsh weather, they also enhance the aesthetic of your home. We especially love the pergola-style awning of the Coronado 2458A, adding dimension and coastal vibes to the home.

4. Window Ledges

Window ledges are placed at the base of your windows and add a classic touch to the overall appearance of your home’s exterior. Consider putting a bird feeder or potted plants on the ledge.

5. Shutters with Style

Shutters can range in design from board and batten to louvered (also called slanted slats) or paneled. They can also come in a variety of textures and finishes. To add a natural, warm style to the exterior of your manufactured home, add wooden board and batten shutters to your windows. If you want a more traditional look, matte raised panel shutters are always a timeless choice.

6. Introduce Colors

The color of your window treatments can really add to your home’s exterior, whether you keep it subtle or choose a bright pop. For a streamlined exterior, try using shutters that are neutral or a similar color to your home’s other exterior accents. As an example, white shutters paired with white trim complement tans, beige, blues and grays. The matching trim and shutters help bring a cohesive style to your manufactured or modular home with little effort.

If you're looking for unity in your exterior, tie everything together with a signature color. Shutters or trim in a bolder color like a rich red, cheery blue or even a stark black can help the home look both structured and stylish.

7. Combined Styles

Who says you can only pick one window treatment? Mix it up by having windows that feature wide frames, shutters and awnings in different places. A combination of styles will contribute to an eye-catching exterior with great curb appeal.

Your window treatments will add to the personality and tone of your manufactured or modular home. Look for window treatments for a home that express who you are, and don’t forget to check out our other beautiful exterior options that will make you feel like you’re coming home every day.
