Michael Biondo’s Single Wide Mobile Home Remodel

Michael Biondo is a lifestyle stylist and designer that has made headlines many times throughout his career. One such headline on Naples News is regarding a single wide mobile home remodel he did for a client in Florida.

One Assignment Leads to Three

He had gone to Florida on assignment to design Laura Grace’s new beach home. The job turned into a longer stay and he rented an apartment. That apartment was completely re-designed for under $2000 using Craigslist to hire labor and find materials and furniture as well as frequent flea markets in the area.

Laura Graces’ mother, Grace Langone, liked his work so much that she hired him to renovate a single wide that she purchased in Ft. Meyers. Her only guidelines were to use the same buttery yellow that he had used for his apartments guest room, make the home feel like a beach house on Captiva Island and, oddly enough, use a little inspiration from the Minnie Mouse house in Walt Disney World. She provided him a generous budget and then never set eyes on the home until it was completely finished.

He nailed it! This home is gorgeous and a perfect example of the potential that mobile homes have. At right around 900 square feet, this home is packed with style. Here’s the home before Michael worked his magic:

Michael was interviewed by Naples News, which is where I found out about the home. He told them that the worst part of the home was the windows because they were so dingy and dark. So, he replaced them with bigger windows to let the light open the space up. He also knocked down walls and moved the laundry to an outdoor building beside the home and laid out new flooring for both the home and the building.  He also replaced all the doors and used French doors to let even more light in.

Michael’s Tips to Remodel on the Cheap

Below are his top 3 tips:

  • Replace fluorescent lighting with more natural light and install dimmer switches.
  • Paint the home in beautiful colors.
  • Use spray paint and sandpaper to achieve the worn look on second-hand furniture.
