How to Remodel Your Mobile Home on a Budget
Yes, contrary to popular belief, you can remodel your mobile home on a budget!
Say you found a great deal on a mobile home, or you’ve lived in your mobile home for years and it’s starting to show its age. However, some thoughtful remodeling can drastically improve the appearance and make it feel more inviting. Many people are hesitant to remodel their mobile homes because they believe it will be costly or even pointless, but with a small budget and careful planning, you can have a more beautiful mobile home and possibly even increase its value!
In today’s blog, we will give you some ideas on how you can remodel your mobile home on a budget to give it new life. Let’s get started!
Construct a Front or Back Deck
Building an outdoor deck is an excellent way to increase the size of your living space and even increase the value of your home. If you don’t plan on moving anytime soon, adding a deck in front or at the back of your mobile home can add functionality and a great place to spend quality time with your family and friends.
You can easily find YouTube tutorials or enlist the assistance of some handy friends if necessary, and you could complete this project on a weekend!
Give Your Mobile Home Kitchen a Facelift
When it comes to remodeling your mobile home’s kitchen, it doesn’t take much to transform the look and feel of your space! Maybe you want to update your countertops, but don’t want to go for granite or other high-priced materials. There are plenty of affordable options out there that have a faux-granite look so you can keep money in your pocket!
Are your cabinets looking dingy and a little outdated? If your cabinets are structurally sound, simply painting them can completely transform your kitchen without the expense and hassle, and cost of replacing them. Finishing off freshly painted cabinets with some new hardware is a genius move to add that extra touch to your kitchen.
One more pretty simple task is to change out your kitchen faucet. Adding a gooseneck faucet or any style you prefer is another way to make your mobile home kitchen more functional and appealing for you and the next owner if you ever sell.
Decluttering & Organizing
Sometimes all it takes to give your mobile home that new feeling is to commit to some serious decluttering and organizing. The best way to approach this task is to go from room to room and go through all of your belongings. It’s vital to be honest with yourself about what you need and don’t need, and then go ahead and donate and sell the rest. Whether you are one to hold onto items or you think you have already gotten rid of everything you could, it never hurts to make another round through the house!
The next step to making your mobile home feel new is to find space for your extra belongings. In your living room, consider a storage ottoman, a coffee table with extra storage space underneath, floating shelves, and some floor baskets. In your bathroom, you can also utilize floating shelves, a set of hooks on the back of the door, and an over-toilet storage cabinet. There are plenty of clever ways to create extra storage space to overall make your mobile home feel bigger and newer!
Remodeling a Mobile Home Bathroom is Simple
One more way you can remodel your mobile home on a budget is to take on the bathroom. This can be as simple as replacing the mirror or adding a trim to the current mirror. You can also replace the sink faucet with something more modern, and replace the lighting fixture to match. Cabinet hardware is another easy way to transform the look of your mobile home’s bathroom and it can be an easy task for just about anyone!
