There are a few good reasons you should pay special attention to your bedroom. Sleep is pretty important for health and well-being. Plus, we spend more time in the bedroom than we do all other rooms combined so it makes sense to make your bedroom as nice as possible. Unfortunately, it’s hard to find bedroom inspiration and ideas for mobile home bedrooms. Even searching Zillow or Craigslist will net you little since Realtors rarely include a shot of the bedrooms in their listing photos.
Most of these 75 beautiful mobile home bedrooms are from featured homes or have been shared on social media.
Farmhouse and Shabby Chic Style Mobile Home Bedrooms
If you are low on funds the farmhouse and shabby chic styles are perfect.
Farmhouse and shabby chic embrace imperfection so you can make a beat-up dresser from the Salvation Army look like a Pottery Barn piece in no time.
Shabby chic or cottage chic is remarkably similar to the farmhouse style. So similar, in fact, it would be hard for a home decor newbie to tell the difference between the two.
The difference between the two styles is in the details. Shabby chic has a feminine opulence about it. Laces and ruffles paired with very soft or faded floral cotton are shabby chic staples. The farmhouse style is a bit more stark and minimal and has a rustic outdoorsy vibe.
Mid-Century Modern Mobile Home Bedrooms
Mid-century seems like the perfect style for a vintage mobile home. My heart swells when I see a vintage mobile home with furnishings and decor from the same era as the home. It just feels right, ya know?
Luckily, the mid-century modern/vintage retro look has been a big hit since Madmen hit the small screen.

3 Tips for a Great Night’s Sleep
All of these mobile home bedrooms are gorgeous in their own way and we can learn a lot from them. Since sleep is so important we should all create a relaxing bedroom space. These 3 tips should help you do just that:
1. Bedrooms Should Have Soothing Colors (whatever that means to you)
Most of the bedrooms above are painted in soothing natural or neutral colors. Light cool tones or darker warm tones can be peaceful in different ways. Most designers advise that we stay away from bright reds and yellows in our bedrooms but a soft coral or warm yellow can work well.
2. Indulge in High-Quality Furniture and a Great Mattress with Good Bedding
If I had to teach my daughter only three things about furniture and mattresses that I had to learn the hard way it would be:
- Invest in high-quality furniture and a really good mattress.
- Always buy furniture secondhand. Yard sells, consignment stores, Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, and consignment stores are great places to buy furniture because it depreciates like a car.
- Matresses should always be purchased new from a place that has a 90-day return policy and 0% interest. I had a great experience with Mattress Firm a couple of years ago (I am not being paid to say that). I splurged on a bed but ended up liking my daughter’s cheaper mattress and they let me exchange it, no questions asked, The difference in price was in my bank in 24 hours.
Lighting is more important and encompasses a lot more than most realize. Lighting means TV, windows, cell phones, digital clocks, nightlights, and lamps. We’ve all heard that we shouldn’t sleep with the phone near us. These all have a light that tells our brains it’s still daylight.
I once read that you should keep the pets out of your bed but my cute heating pads keep my feet warm. They earn their keep. The following clutter in my bedroom right now hasn’t earned their keep:
- 7 dog toys with no stuffing left in them
- 3 cat toys of questionable origin
- 3 baskets of clothes that should’ve been folded 4 days ago (and another load in the dryer).
- A box of Apple Jacks cereal from the 2 am munchy session the other night.
- A cool wire art set that no one in the house likes but me (my daughter says it looks like a boob).
