Interior decorating ideas to make a mobile home glamorous

A mobile home is something you usually associate in your mind as being cramped and inferior. But done right, mobile home design can make a mobile home comfortable and stunning. Here are a few interior decorating ideas to make even a mobile home glamorous.

Wood floors

Most mobile homes come standard with carpeted floors. But there’s so much more of a wow factor when you have wood flooring. Since you remodel from the ground up it’s the logical place to start. Tear up that carpeting and install wood flooring or laminate if you want the look without as big an investment.

Countertops

A higher-grade material for the kitchen and bathroom counters is another way to spruce up a mobile home. Granite is the undisputed king of kitchen countertops but it’s also the most expensive. Quartz is a less porous (read "easier to clean") material that costs much less and has a very elegant look.

Home office

Want to make your mobile home more professional, create a home office. Since space is limited, you don’t have the luxury of a dedicated home office. You can, however, create an office nook in the bedroom. Purchase a small but nice computer desk and chair. Put your desktop or laptop there, and voila, a home office.

Less is more

Real estate is your limiting factor when decorating a mobile home so you have to be especially judicious about what stays and what goes. Ditch the huge TV stand, mount an ultra-slim flat screen right onto the wall. Install a floating shelf or two nearby to place your Blu-ray player and movies. You have to be smarter about creative storage solutions. Everything should double as extra storage. A coffee table needs a shelf below; an ottoman needs to open up to reveal hidden storage. Move things off the floor. Pendant lights instead of lamps, mounted coat hooks rather than a coat rack.

Baseboard heater covers

Does your mobile home have a dated-looking baseboard heater system? Cover it with a snap-on cover. They’re inexpensive, easy to install, and they make your mobile home look much more modern.
