Mobile Home Kitchen Makeover: Chantal’s Chic Country Cottage
We featured this home makeover a few months ago. Chantal lives in upstate NY in this 2000 model double wide.
This kitchen makeover is a great mix of rustic, natural tones and rich, warm textures.
One of the biggest changes made was the cabinet replacement. Chantal replaced the manufactured home cabinetry with custom built pieces. It’s a bit expensive but you can’t beat the upscale look it provides. Oh, and the backsplash is pretty darn awesome, too!
1970’s Mobile Home Kitchen Makeover
This next kitchen makeover is great because it proves you don’t need to change everything to get a beautiful kitchen. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any additional information on this mobile home kitchen makeover, other than this photo, but the photo speaks volumes.
Obvious changes include: walls were painted, new laminate flooring was laid in the kitchen and carpet in the living room, and new laminate on the counters.
This remodel proves that you can change only the major surfaces of a kitchen and still create a remarkable room.
Mobile Home Meets Modern Simplicity
This bachelor pad kitchen is a beautiful example of modern simplicity in a mobile home kitchen makeover.
This kitchen makeover focuses on simplicity and modern materials. Stark black counters paired with white cabinetry create a modern space.
The window screens are an unique feature. Plexiglas has so many great uses, using them as a privacy screens on windows allow plenty of light and ample privacy to the home.
Sheet Metal Mobile Home Kitchen Makeover
This Canadian single wide remodel uses sheet metal throughout the home. Sheet metal is an affordable, waterproof, rustproof, and long-lasting material that can be a perfect addition to home both inside and out.
Black and white are popular colors for kitchens. Gina, the owner, used metallic accents sparingly in the kitchen. She even uses garage cabinets as a storage solution!
Mobile Home Goes Farmhouse Chic
This next mobile home kitchen makeover is creative. The owner did a great job of using easy-to-find (and afford) materials to reface the upper cabinets.
The back splash is recycled wood that gives the space a great warmth. The ivory chicken wire cabinets paired with beautiful wood counter tops really pull the space together and provokes a timeless farmhouse/country style.
Just to show you how remarkable this makeover is, here is the kitchen before the update:
The Richards’ Mobile Home Kitchen Makeover
Justin and Stephanie Richards purchased their 2003 single wide manufactured home in 2013. The home sits on 11 acres in Sistersville, WV (YAY WV!). The home has two additions built onto the front of the home which is used as a living room and guest bedroom.
As with most used home purchases, the Richards’ knew the structure needed work when they bought it. It was only after they moved in that they realized just how much remodeling it was going to need. I think that happens to all of us that buy a used mobile home, regardless of age. Small details are easily missed when viewing a home and it takes a couple of weeks to start noticing the little issues.
Nevertheless, the couple repaired and replaced their way to a great home!
Here’s the finished kitchen:
Here’s a small list of some of the changes the couple made to their kitchen:
- New sub-flooring and laminate installed throughout the home. There was a leak left unattended that damaged the sub-flooring so badly that it waterlogged and bubbled.
New lower cabinets installed. The leak was so severe the bottom kitchen cabinets became waterlogged as well. Water will always be the biggest threat to manufactured homes.
Upper cabinets removed. Shelving installed above counter space is a popular trend for smaller kitchens. It opens up the space and provides convenient storage solution.
Living room space turned into a dining room. Since the home has an addition used as a living room they were able to create a dining space in the old living room.
Removed the bar area. The cabinets originally created an L-shaped counter space but it wasn’t very convenient. The Richards’ removed the bar area and added a small island.
Painted the kitchen and dining area in Rafia Ribbon by Behr.
The dining room was also updated:
