I’ve seen a few comments from vintage mobile home groups stating their displeasure when they see older mobile homes that are gutted and remodeled instead of restored back to their original state.
Apparently, the ‘true connoisseurs’ thinks everyone should have the exact same taste as they do and fail to realize that not all of us have the desire or the means to completely restore an older mobile home. Instead of commenting negatively about someones home perhaps they should recall a lesson that most of our parents taught us:
If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it all.
Many of us just want an affordable home and an older mobile home is certainly a great way to achieve that goal. When an owner of an older mobile home decides to gut and remodel their property instead of restoring they should be applauded for their ability to see the potential in the home and respected for taking on the project. It is their home after all!
With that said, here’s a great New Moon mobile home that has been beautifully remodeled!
Beautifully Remodeled 1964 New Moon Mobile Home
This 1964 New Moon mobile home has a been completely gutted and remodeled and every inch of it is awesome! There’s some great interior design tricks being followed in this home too.
This great mobile home is a perfect getaway!
You can rent this Mackinaw City, MI home at VRBO.com for around $100 per night. It’s close to a lighthouse which probably means some great fishing close by!
The home is 10 foot wide by 47 feet, for a total of 470 square feet but there is a lot packed into this small mobile home!
White is Right
Using clean white color on your walls and ceiling really opens up a space and makes it feel more spacious – it’s a great trick for any small home.
Love the Light
Ample lighting is another great idea for small homes! Use lighting on different levels of the space to create warmth and provide an appealing visual element.
See Thru the Clutter
Cabinetry with see-thru glass doors is a great way to make a kitchen seem larger. It fools the eye into looking up and creates depth in the room.
A corner sink can really open up the counter top and give you lots more usable space.
Details, Details, Details
Small details like these decorative tiles on the back splash help pull a space together. Every great interior designer knows that the small details are what makes a room great!
Kitchens and Baths 101
There’s little that can compare to a great bathroom that is well organized and lighted. If you can only remodel one room in your home consider either the bathroom or kitchen first, both rooms can make the entire home feel updated.
This is a great remodel and I applaud the owners for going modern. Sometimes it just makes more sense to update a vintage mobile home with modern amenities and in your own style.
Who says we can’t enjoy the best of both worlds?
