Tips for Furnishing Your Mobile Home

 

Tips for Furnishing Your Mobile Home

If you’ve visited enough mobile homes, you know they all look different, depending on who is living there and how they’ve infused it with their own personality. All the trailers on your street may look the same from the outside, but you can create an oasis on the inside that makes yours the best in the neighborhood. Follow these tips for furnishing your mobile home to design an expert space on a budget. Check it out!

Redo the Walls

Whether with paint, wallpaper, or stencils, you can cover your existing walls with something fresh and new. Depending on who you buy it from, your mobile home may come with walls that are all the same color—typically white. You can change the tones to warmer, neutral shades or brighten up the place with greens, yellows, and blues.

Spruce Up Your Cabinets

Most mobile homes don’t come with quality kitchen cabinets. Customize yours by installing new ones. Choose a wood stain that goes well with your paint color. Light wood matches light paint, and dark wood looks good against darker paints. Consider shelf styles; some feature clear glass, spinning shelves, and other functional features.

Create Focal Points

To decorate your home like a professional, define a focal space in each room. You can use the furniture since most mobile homes don’t come with grand features like fireplaces or bay windows. To get the best bang for your buck, know when to save and when to splurge on furniture. Items that you will use as focal points are worth spending a little extra money on, such as your bed, sofa, and dining room table. You can save on accent pieces like ottomans, side tables, and chairs.

Divide Open Spaces

Many mobile homes are “open concept.” If this is the case in yours, use your furniture to break up the room and create spaces for different parts of your life. Place your dining table next to the kitchen to establish the dining room. If you have a large living room or bedroom, place a desk against a wall to establish a workspace. Further, you can use a sectional or sofa to divide a room by using the back or side of the sofa as a divider.

Share these tips for furnishing your mobile home with your neighbors. They are bound to ask how you came up with your ideas. You won’t just have the trendiest trailer in the park; you’ll live in the best park in town. Attract the best neighbors when you spruce up your decor.
