Mirror Mirror on the Wall

His and her sinks have made mornings easier for couples all across the nation. Huge mirrors that span the entire counter is another asset, but it tends to look cold and reduces storage. This idea to update your mobile home bathroom mirror with trim and custom shelving creates storage and gives the space an upscale traditional style. I love it! The details of this project can be found here.

Light and Bright for the Win

Guest bathrooms are usually small, so it’s important to brighten the space up using well-known interior design tricks. White walls, bigger windows, and mirrors are the tricks of the trade, and this mobile home bathroom update used them all. Wainscotting helps elongate walls, and the vertical trim pulls the eye up. Visit Nina Hendrick online for more details.

Goodbye Garden Tub

The infamous garden tub can be the greatest thing on earth or a complete waste of space. If it’s a waste of space, this is an excellent example of a complete bathroom makeover. While the plumbing is better left to a professional, the faux wallboards are perfect for a DIY project because they don’t require grouting. You just attach each panel to the wall with screws and glue. A smaller soaker tub replaced the corner garden tub, and that allowed for a bigger shower.  For more ways to use wallboard in your bathroom click here!

Tile Transformation

Removing the tub and tiling a shower in its place is a popular mobile home improvement project. It isn’t for the beginner DIY though so save up to hire a pro. One small error can cause thousands of dollars in damages. Still, tiling a shower will give you a gorgeous bathroom, and it has a good return on investment – it’s a win-win!

    Crystal, this is perfect timing! I’m getting ready to gut my tiny master bath. My plans are to replace the old plastic tub/shower with a shower, replace the cheap “wood” vanity and plastic sink with an antique dry sink and vessel sink, and new vinyl on the floor. The problem is that I’ve searched high and low for a shower kit like the one in this article but I can’t find anything even remotely similar. I’ve looked at the home improvement stores and also the mobile home parts website.

    Can you please help me find out more about the simple-but-beautiful shower in the “Tub to Shower Conversion” photo, or maybe even the products they used? I’d be so grateful!

      Hi Robynne,

      Thank you for the suggestion! We will definitely put that on our to-do list. Knowing what articles to put together makes it a lot easier for us – after 500+ posts we tend to get a bit low on ideas. Thank you!
