Finding a used manufactured home that has been maintained properly is fairly easy wherever you are. Families outgrow their space and often trade in their single wides for a larger double wide. An older single wide with good bones can often be purchased for less than $10,000.

Figuring out how to update and remodel the single wide home is the difficult part!

Here’s some great single wide remodels that will surely inspire you.

Sensational Skirting

This single wide has great curb appeal!

The addition of cedar along the skirting and corners gives the home great visual appeal. The contrast between the white metal siding and the softwood is a perfect combination!

By only installing wood onto the bottom and corners you save a lot of money while still creating a huge visual impact.

This exterior siding project would be perfect for those of us that have to do a little work at a time, as our budget allows. You can see more of this home here.

Excellent Exterior and Intimate Interior

Adding an accent to only one end of your home’s exterior is a great way to add appeal and still keep within a budget.

Below, you can see the updated kitchen. The owner used several popular kitchen materials such as a mosaic tiled back-splash, white cottage styled cabinetry, dark laminated wood floors, and stainless steel appliances.

The interior received a complete makeover as well.

Sheetrock was installed on both the wall and ceiling to create a clean canvas. Boldly painted accent walls are used in each room to provide visual appeal.

Paint will always be the most affordable thing you can do to change your home’s appearance.

The kitchen remodel is remarkable!

Sleek and simple is how I would describe this kitchen. Stylish accents are used throughout the room: Long-handled cabinet hardware provides lots of visual appeal and bright white cabinetry provides contrast to the black countertops.

The bathroom is beautiful!

Dark grey is a popular paint color but it can be difficult to work within certain spaces. This small bathroom gets it right!

This is a perfect example of mixing dark and light colors to create an inviting space. Adding expensive materials with more affordable materials can provide a great space at a great price.
