These creative remodeling ideas for your mobile home prove you don’t have to spend a small fortune to make your home fabulous. Projects that only cost a few dollars or only take a few hours to do make a big difference. You don’t have to spend a lot for a beautiful home and these projects prove it.

Creative Trim

Trim is more powerful than you think. It completes the space like a cherry completes a fudge sundae. Use it to accent doors, windows, and even the breakfast bar or cabinetry.

Look what a few small pieces of wood can do to an interior door:

Trim is needed on the exterior, too. The right trim can make a window or door appear larger and more expensive. It can create cohesiveness and make the home look more put together for lack of a better word.

Creative Storage Options

Through the years we have done many articles about ways to create more storage in our mobile home. One of our favorite tips is adding a window seat. This adds extra seating in a small mobile home and a place to store items that aren’t needed every day.

Don’t forget, a window seat doesn’t necessarily have to be under a window, any unused space can be used! Another one of our favorites, installing shelves in otherwise unused space. Perhaps a corner or over the washer and dryer.

Creative Backsplashes

A remodeling project should always add value to you or your home. It should make your chores easier or add beauty to your space. It should add a sense of pride, too, especially if it’s a DIY project.

Updating your backsplash is a great project that can help make cleaning up your kitchen easier, add beauty, and is a fairly easy DIY project. Check out our easy DIY backsplash project for inspiration.

Creative Decks and Porches

A new deck is one of the best creative remodeling ideas for your mobile home. Even a small deck can completely change the entire look of your home. It doesn’t have to be a total build, maybe something as simple as adding a roof to your current porch or expanding the current porch to a wraparound (which we love!)

Creative Cabinets

Do you have a favorite collection of Grandma’s china that you would love to display? Or perhaps you just want to open up those kitchen cabinets for a rustic look.  Maybe they just need an update with a fresh coat of paint. Removing the doors to an upper cabinet can give your kitchen new life.
