How to Design a Park Model Cottage

If you’re getting closer to making a cottage purchase, you’re probably starting to think about how many bedrooms it needs, the furniture and appliances required, the best layout for your lifestyle and family, and of course … the beautiful exterior where you can enjoy lake views and watch the sunset. Your list of ideal cottage features is growing and you’re not sure how you will find what you’re looking for.

How about designing your very own park model cottage? For much less cost than you’d expect, it’s possible to get a new cottage with the beautiful features you’re dreaming about: modern amenities, a functional open concept floor plan and a gorgeous porch to relax your time away. Here’s how the design process works:

Choose a floor plan

Decide on the floor plan that works best for you and your family. There is a selection to choose from with plenty of opportunity for your own customized touches. Open concept living is core to all Parkbridge’s park model floor plans. This delightful sense of spaciousness makes family moments even more memorable and exciting. Some floor plans also incorporate a personal office with plenty of space for writing, calm reflection or creative contemplation. One or two bedroom floorplans are available offering comfortable beds in various size options (or bunk beds if you desire), padded headboards, and loads of cabinetry for all your essentials. Colour coordinated drapery and bedding packages brighten the room, and the large window floods the room with sunlight or starlight to suit your mood.

Build a dream kitchen

Cooking won’t feel like a chore if you design a dream kitchen. The layouts are practical, spacious and functional, but offer modern decor and customizable options. You can choose cabinetry in a luxurious chocolate pear, white or walnut finish. Counter space is generous with options for an island or breakfast bar to make entertaining even easier. Additional features such as pot lights, a ceramic tile backsplash, built-in wine racks and stainless steel appliances are the perfect kitchen complements. Just imagine the delicious and casual cottage meals you can create in this beautiful space!

Create a luxurious bathroom

Rustic bathrooms with questionable plumbing are a thing of the past in a park model home. Get refreshed in the glass enclosed shower and enjoy a deluxe vanity with large counter space, lots of cabinetry and framed mirrors. Some floor plans even offer a full bath/shower combination and/or an ensuite bathroom.

Select modern decor touches

Say goodbye to ugly outdated fabrics and flooring. Instead you get to choose from large selection of colour coordinated fabrics in neutral greys, browns, tans, and even a pop of colour here and there. Everything from the window coverings, duvets, sofas, cabinet hardware and more is customized to exactly the style you want. The floors are a low maintenance wood-grain look vinyl, making clean-up after a day at the beach easy.
