7 Great Beach Cottage Style Ideas for your Mobile Home

The home above is a great example of the popular beach cottage style. Here are a few more ideas that can help you get the same look in your home:

  • Use white or light colors as the backdrop. Light, fresh, and airy is a great way to describe the beach cottage style and white or light colors can help achieve the look effortlessly.
  • Decor such as signs made with worn wood, glass with rope elements, and seashells are the go-to decorations for the beach cottage style. Pairing like objects together can make a beautiful display for any room.

  • Keep clutter and decor to a minimum. You want the room to portray the beach which is minimal itself.
  • Put the focus on one element per room. A sofa in a great beach color or a beautiful table along with a few beach-themed decorations is a perfect combination for the beach cottage style.
  • A barn door is a space saver for small bathrooms in narrow mobile home hallways. It’s a popular replacement for the standard interior door and it works well for any style but particularly the beach cottage style. This mobile home has combined worn wood with a great sea blue color.

  • Add natural materials such as wicker, cotton, and wood. Beach theme decor is all about bringing the beach into your home and that includes color and texture.

This beautiful mobile home is listed as completely furnished for $147,000 on Craigslist and $177,000 on Tiny House Listings.

    I’ve looked into adding a barn door in my mobile home but have been told the walls would not support one. Can u tell me what hardware was used?
    I love the look!

      Hi Amy!

      The weight of the wood could cause an issue if it’s really thick or if the hardware is made from a heavy metal. As long as your opening isn’t huge you could use a lightweight aluminum for the hardware and maybe a 1/4″ or 1/2″ thick (very dry) rough lumber in 6-8″ widths. You could also use a sheet of plywood with wide trim added like the one in this home. The trim around the edges are reinforcing the plywood and giving the door depth to appear more like a real barn wood door (along with the paint effect).

      You can buy aluminum barn door hardware just about any where (amazon, Lowe’s, Home Depot). Just be sure to choose one that is the appropriate size for your home and as lightweight as possible. As long as you attach it through the studs you should be just fine.

      Most manufactured homes use the standard 2×4 studs, just like a site-built home. Some of the higher-end models even have 2×6’s. A few of the cheaper models have 2×3’s but even those should be able to handle the weight of the hardware and a lightweight wood for a standard size interior door.

      Usually, if it can be done in a site-built home it can be done in a manufactured home (perhaps with an adjustment or two made). I’ve heard “you can’t do that in a mobile home” so many times but when you ask for a specific reason why it is usually based on misinformation or the person believing manufactured homes are not built with standard home construction techniques. They have it in their heads that mobile home equals camper.

      Best of luck!

    Very nice little home. Love the wood floors throughout and the colourful artwork. The skylight in the kitchen in a nice feature and probably keeps the small space light and bright. The coffee bar with the “eat” letters above is fun.

      Hi Shirlee! It’s great to hear from you! I hope you are doing well and enjoying your summer.

    Great article! Always excited to see other mobile owners using a coastal theme to decorate. Just what we did this spring our new-to-us used doublewide here on the Texas Gulf coast, and while I’m not finished (2nd and 3rd bedroom + guest bath remain original) I’m thrilled with how its all worked out. Decorating has never been my strong suit and we’re on an ultra-slim budget these days, so thank God for craigslist and garage sale.
