Manufactured Home Makeover: DIY Home Decor Tips

BLOG Posts

If you own a manufactured home, you're already enjoying the perks of modern living with a dash of cozy charm. But why stop there? With a few simple DIY projects, you can transform your manufactured home into a personal oasis that reflects your unique style. Let's dive into some fun and easy indoor DIY projects that will help you spruce up your space and make it truly yours (without breaking the bank!).

DIY Decor Tips to Transform Your Manufactured Home

Manufactured homeowners have so many ways to personalize the interior of their dwellings. Remember, though, if you rent your home or want to change anything on the exterior, you’ll need to check with your community manager before making any updates! Now, let’s get to the inspiration. 

Arrange a Gallery Wall

One of the easiest ways to add personality to your home is by creating a gallery wall. Gather your favorite photos, artwork, and prints, and arrange them in a visually pleasing layout. Mix and match different frame styles and sizes to add depth and interest. This kind of project not only showcases your personal taste but also brings a sense of warmth and character to any room.

Gallery Wall Tips

  • If you use removable adhesive hooks instead of permanent anchors, you can rearrange your gallery wall whenever you’d like to reflect the seasons or your changing style!
  • Lay out your frames on the floor before hanging them to find the perfect arrangement.
  • Mirror, mirror on the wall! Mirrors are a decorator’s secret weapon, making any space feel airy and open. Try making a gallery wall out of smaller mirrors for extra flair!

Wallpaper is Back In!

Wallpaper isn't your grandma's outdated decor anymore. Today's designs are bursting with bold patterns, textures, and playful prints. Want to make a statement wall? Choose a daring geometric design for your living room. Craving a touch of serenity in the bedroom? Opt for a calming floral pattern. 

There are tons of trends out there to give you endless remodeling ideas with very little investment!

Wallpaper Tips

  • Remember, wallpaper doesn't have to cover a whole room. Use it creatively behind bookshelves or create a unique accent in a half-bath.
  • Not ready to commit to one style? Wall decals are a fantastic way to add personality to your home without making permanent changes.
  • Experiment with different designs in different rooms for a cohesive yet varied look.

Create a Cozy Reading Nook

Make your fairy-tale dreams come true when you transform a quiet corner of your home into a cozy reading nook. All you need is a comfy chair, a good lamp, and a few soft cushions and throws. This space will quickly become your favorite spot to unwind with a good book and a cup of tea.

Reading Nook Tips

  • Add a small side table for easy access to your books and a drink.
  • Use a plush rug to define the space and add warmth.
  • Floating shelves are a fantastic way to add storage and style to any room, and they can make a reading nook especially lovely. Try installing shelves at different heights to create visual interest.

Budget-Friendly Kitchen Cabinet Revamp

Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and giving your cabinets a new look can make a huge difference. A fresh coat of paint or some stylish hardware can work wonders. Go bold with a trendy navy blue, or keep it classic with crisp white. Feeling adventurous? Try stenciling a fun pattern for a truly customized look. 

Cabinet Remodeling Tips

  • Choose a paint that is durable and easy to clean.
  • Clean and remove your cabinet doors, drawer fronts, and hardware before painting for an even, professional application.
  • Swap out old handles and knobs for a complete transformation—from stylish and sleek to vintage-inspired, you can work wonders with a few bucks and a screwdriver! Look for cabinet pulls with matching holes for the easiest installation.

Light Up Your Life (Literally!)

Harsh overhead lighting can leave a room feeling sterile. Ditch the builder-grade basics and embrace the power of ambiance! String fairy lights across a wall for a whimsical touch, or swap out boring lampshades for bolder decorative options. Whether it’s modern pendant lights in the kitchen or mood lighting under the cabinets, updated lighting is a great way to showcase your personal style.

Lighting Tips

  • Invest in dimmer switches—a cost-effective game-changer for creating a cozy atmosphere.
  • Mix and match different styles for an eclectic feel.
  • Now’s the perfect time to consider using energy-efficient bulbs to save on electricity.
