When it comes to mobile homes, there’s something to be said for minimizing and getting back to basics. And while we can’t imagine any living space tinier than that of a mobile home, there are some pretty great ones out there that just might make you come around to the idea. These particular fancy mobile homes are so beautiful, in fact, that we could totally see ourselves living in them.
Some mobile homes are a little more spacious than others, like this luxury version that features entirely separate spaces for dining, sleeping and lounging after a long day. The neutral tones lend the home a calming air and helps to cool things down on those hot summer nights.
Although the idea of mobile homes often bring the rugged outdoors to mind, it doesn’t mean the interior of your space has to reflect that. Soften things up with little decor details such as a string of lights, bright teapots, gingham tablecloths and eye-catching throw pillows. You can even buy some easy-to-care-for indoor plants that go beyond succulents for an added flourish.
Design details like grainy wood, natural textures and soft, neutral tones make a perfect combo for those who favour more rustic accommodations. Worried you won’t have enough space to prep meals in your fancy mobile home? There are actually plenty of ways to maximize your extra-narrow cooking space.
A fresh coat of crisp white or pastel paint can go a long way towards lightening up your mobile home and lending the space a clean, bright feel – especially if it lacks side windows.
Create a Kitchen Triangle
When it comes to designing your kitchen area, the placement of the three most-used appliances is key. The sink, stove and refrigerator should be in a clear triangular shape, as it’ll help you achieve maximum space for movement and organization.
Up on High
If space allows, consider adding an “upper level” to your mobile home by elevating your bedroom above the kitchen and living areas. It’ll allow for more room on the main level to move around and give off the illusion of a much bigger space. There are also plenty of other ways to organize small spaces for maximum storage.
Keep it Simple
Opting for the same wood panelling – or paint colour – for the floor and walls will creative a cohesive look that you can then add a little flair to with bright accents, such as blankets and knick knacks.
Make the most of your tall mobile home by adding overhead cabinets for maximum storage. It’s only one of many staging tricks that will make a tiny room look bigger.
Living out of a mobile home doesn’t mean you have to compromise in the appliance department. Modernize your space with updates to your kitchen counter, for example, by adding a spring sprout sink faucet.
If you’re tight on space, adding a convertible sofa bed is an easy way to transform a bedroom into a common living space for your family to enjoy a little R&R.
