  • @Dorothy, I personally believe you can decorate a mobile home the same as any type of home. Anything you love will work in your home.

    Dorothy What type of work are you considering? I live in a mobile home and for the most part (some areas have to be tackled diff.) any work or decorating can be done the same as other type homes. Knowing what you are wanting to do will help us to give better answers.

    Your floor space is generally limited in a mobile home. So, consider what you can do ON THE WALLS. Hang things, make storage which goes up the wall, all the way to the ceiling--no really deep but lots of it. Even an entire wall of shallow cubbies (cubes). Don't forget, if there is space over a door you can put something up there. Always use one color to unify your place. Don't be afraid of color either. I think the one thing that is driving me nuts on all the home shows is people trying to work around a honking big brown sofa! Get one smaller chaise if you want to lounge. Then, get rid of the sofa and get comfortable, interesting, smaller chairs, some big cushions and some bean bags for the kids. Work a neat way to stack them up when not in use--make them colorful and turn them into art! I live in a B&B inn which is BIG but we still have the same issues--usually too much stuff. Maybe we all need a clean out day even before thinking about decorating!

    Hi, I bought a 40 yr old mobile home 3 yrs ago and have been redoing since. It has really great bones and is a double wide will lots of room and 2 WALK IN CLOSETS!!! First thing I did was paint the wood paneling to lighten up the walls, With a limited bugtet I spent my money on new window treatments again to update. The rest ....décor as found....I'm a vintage, upcycle kinda girl. And I get that wow effect when people walk in....Good luck .....My next project when it warms up is a bathroom redo....again its going to be a upcycle project....lots of paint and faux finishes....oh and I love living in a mobile home ...I'm 58 yr old single female and I can do most of the work/ repairs my self....I don't think I'll ever move back into a house...
