In many ways, park homes conform to one of two broad layout themes. They're either open plan or they have a separate lounge. Omar's new Vision, though, has both of those layout features. And there's more. The vast open-plan kitchen/dining room contains a second lounge. The Vision, thus, is a park home like no other.

As you step inside, the instant first impression is that it has a homely feel at the same time as an overarching sophistication. Combine that with both modernity and cosiness and you are getting somewhere near the ethos of the Vision.
We start our tour by the door, perched on an upholstered seat perfectly positioned for lacing up or taking off footwear. There's a cabinet in which to hide them away and four double coat hooks above. Alongside is a cabinet with four shelves and more space for shoes beneath. Bags of practicality, then.
The main lounge spans the width of the home and consists of deep pile, high-quality carpet. This room is a cosy retreat, totally separate from the rest of the home. There's a calm elegance about this room. Three full-height windows, the front two with tall sections that reach up into the apex of the off-centre roofline, ensure it's a very light room. Two large sofas invite you to relax. The fawn colour palette is enhanced by a grey and dark fawn embroidered leaf pattern in the lovely high-quality curtains.
Then there's the second lounge. This area can be anything you want it to be. A second television area, perhaps. It can be the after-dinner coffee area - or the pre-dinner cocktails area. Or somewhere for younger family members to settle, in their own area, when they visit.
The kitchen provides all of the cabinet space you need and more besides, in four cabinets plus two more in the island unit, and three wall cabinets. There's also a total of six drawers; two large ones in the island unit and four in the main kitchen cabinet run. A washing machine and dishwasher are integrated, as is a fridge/freezer containing a wine rack. In fact, wine racks are a bit of a theme in the Vision's kitchen. The island unit incorporates two, one on each end.
Surfaces are fawn stone effect. Cabinetry is matt cashmere shade with aged wood-effect framework. It works well; plain, yet stylish. Above the fan oven/grill and four-burner hob, with cast iron pan trivet, is a three-speed extractor fan and integrated spotlights, stylishly constructed of steel and glass.
The dining table is impressively large. Four low-back chairs are here, plus an upholstered seat set into an alcove that gives the dining area its own identity, making it feel just a little bit separate, yet still integrated with the kitchen.
The study is well-planned, with a desk running the whole length of the room to make the best use of space. Three drawers and a cabinet are in the desk and two cabinets are in a unit above.
The main bedroom has full-height windows on one side plus three more windows, beside and above the bed, making this an exceptionally light room. A corridor-style dressing area, with two wardrobes, leads to the en suite shower room.
Aged oak-effect is a theme of the Vision; it's used for the chest-of-drawers tops in the bedroom and the desk. It's also used for the dressing table in the second bedroom that is complete with a blue upholstered stool. Cool blue is the colour theme of this room, for the headboard and embroidered pattern in the curtains and cushions.
In the main bedroom, the accent colour is burgundy, for the headboard, bed sash and embroidered design in the curtains, Roman blinds and cushions. It's the same leaf-and-flower design as in the second room; the burgundy shade creates a rich, sophisticated look.
