Colorful Single Wide Makeovers, Part 2

Our last post, Colorful and Low-Cost Single Wide Room Ideas, was a huge hit and I wanted to share more single wide makeover ideas from HGTV’s Rate My Room blog. The ever talented Cybergypsy creates a bold and beautiful home with color and simple ideas that don’t cost a fortune to do.

Cybergypsy knows how to use some color to bring a room to life and uses some amazingly simple decorating tricks that work!

Here is a larger single wide, in all its colorful glory:

The master bathroom suite is huge! Lot’s of room and lots of space to get ready. I like this home’s layout a lot!

Note: The plastic tubs in manufactured homes ALWAYS turn yellow. I don’t know why and I don’t know how to stop it. There’s got to be a product out there that will fix it though, there’s just gotta be! If there isn’t, we need to get started on that pronto! If you know of anything that will help, please share in the comments. Thanks!

Look at all that space! The purple color reminds me of the “Friends” apartment color. It was wildly popular and is still used a lot. It’s a great color for that popular shabby chic style.

I’m going to assume this is the guest bathroom. It, too, has a great little layout and the muted colors are appealing. I adore the little window, too!

The third single wide is different from the last post (I compared because they looked so similar after it was painted). Here, they left the cabinet doors on and the layout is a bit different. The note said that it was 27 years old (this was posted in 2008) and had never been painted.

Loving the red with the white accents! The modern clear acrylic table with tractor seat stools is a perfect addition to this room, too. It truly amazes me how much paint can change a room.

The bathroom before. It’s your typical late seventies model bathroom with lots of storage and counter space.

A little paint goes a long way!

They carried the red accents throughout the home. It works well! Notice the new toilet and new pulls on the cabinet.

The bedroom is marvelous! I love its bold grey with crisp white and red accents. The chrome tiles are a nice touch, too.

Crystal Adkins created Mobile Home Living in 2011 after buying a 1978 single wide and searching online for mobile home remodeling ideas but finding very little. Today, it's the most popular resource in America for mobile home information and inspiration and has been visited over 40 million times.


  1. The only way I found to fix the yellowing of the tubs/showers was to use a epoxy tub renewal kit I found at Lowe’s. It took some time to avoid brush marks, very good ventilation and a good respirator mask. I did my guest tub/shower, the master garden tub and shower a year ago and it looks great. It does seem to be trying to yellow again though, but it holds up very well to water and use.

  2. Hi Vickie!! It's great to hear from you. Sounds like you have it all worked out and are following your dreams. That's an inspiration to me because I hope to travel the country/continent with a camper someday. I figure in about 5-8 years, I'll be pulling out of the drive way and on my way to

    Your new home is going to be gorgeous!! All it takes is a little know how and a lot of elbow grease and it'll be in tip top shape. The smoke should be easy enough to get rid of: primer and paint will do wonders (doesn't Kilz promise to cover odors, too? I think one of the popular primers says it does) and then you have a awesome base for any style you want. Keep MMHL in mind, I'm always looking for homes to share and good luck to you. I hope it all comes out exactly like you want it or better 🙂

  3. I am sure glad I found this site! My partner, Ken and I just purchased a 1994 single wide mobile home in southeast Arizona in a rural setting. It was occupied by a heavy smoker and I must say we are so PUMPED to go in and a do a refresh remodel. We sold our home in South Dakota last fall and were hitting the road as workampers living fulltime in our 25 ft travel trailer. We are so ready for roots again. We LOVE the challenge of this and I will visit here often for more ideas. Thank you, Vickie

  4. Thanks guys, I am Cybergypsy and those were my homes, not rentals , I am uploading more of my vp current home now, on the HGTV site…. I am very happy you like my ideas, I now found a few cheap and easy ways for countertops and cabinits.

  5. Love, love LOVE it!!! Thank you for all your hard work in bringing us all the goodness that is mobile home living!

  6. Hi Shirlee! I'm the same as you when it comes to stuff. I used to be a slight hoarder but I've gotten to a point where I don't want clutter around me at all. Living in less than 700 sq ft has taught me to find a place for everything. I like that layout cause if your laying in bed, you won't see the is amazing what a little paint can do! Thanks so much for reading and commenting! I appreciate you!

  7. Hi Tiffany! Thanks so much for commenting! I'm going to make it a goal to find out how to either fix the tub issue or keep it from happening. It has to be a chemical reaction to the air, water or light. Maybe a chemist could help us! I just gotta find one now..lolThanks for reading MMHL, too!

  8. Cybergypsy certainly isn't afraid of colour! Not a big fan of the bright yellow but adding bold colours sure gives the homes personality. One thing I love about using fresh, bold colours is that you don't need to add a lot of stuff to the space because colour is the star. Obviously I have a problem with "stuff" because I always seem to mention how much I like the pared down style and not a lot of clutter. lol
    The master bathroom is different, never seen a tub positioned like that before. But it looks to be a good sized room with lots of storage. I love the dark purple in the other bathroom.

    You always find such interesting homes to feature. It's interesting how most of the homes start out the same basic shape, but with a little creativity they all look different inside.

    Have a wonderful week!

  9. I love the bold colors in the bedroom and kitchen! I have looked and looked for information on the tub discoloration. All I have found is a DIY for painting them.
