There are so many beautiful home decorating styles. The most popular is the farmhouse style but mid-century modern, country-primitive, and modern traditional are just as trendy.

Unfortunately, many home decor styles aren’t always functional. Yes, the home is beautiful but if it makes your life more difficult it simply isn’t worth it.

Not all decorating styles are good ideas. That white rug you love so much would NEVER stay white with kids or pets running in and out all the time. Fresh flowers are great but they are expensive if you don’t grow them yourself. Knick-knacks are fun to look like but a real pain to dust. c

Let Your Love of Books Work For You

Always have a stack of books laying around? Use those books that you can’t bear to part with to your advantage by stacking them and using them as an accent on your bedside table or living room side table. Or like we shared below, make a shelf out of them. (See more book ideas at Creamy Life).

Add Some Life to Your Mobile Home With Plants

We may not be a big fan of fresh flowers, but we love a good house plant. Decorating with plants is an easy way to add some color to any room, not to mention they clean the air. Find some cool tabletop or floor planters or even a hanging planter (the kind your Grandma used to have hanging in her home) and fill them with your favorite plants. Don’t have much of a green thumb? Several types of houseplants are hard to kill. We’ve included a list of 11 from All Created to get you started!

Showcase Your Family

We have talked many times here at Mobile Home Living about creating a gallery wall in your mobile home as an inexpensive way to add style to your room. Why not take all those family photos you have taken over the years and use them as the theme. Using different size frames will create an eye-catching look.

Light It Up

One of the easiest ways to add your sense of style to your mobile home is to change out the lighting. Whether it be updating your ceiling lights or changing your lamps, there are so many different choices. Don’t forget to upgrade your light bulbs as well. Not only are there many energy efficient choices out there, but you can also get different hues for different rooms, whether it be bright, soft or somewhere in between.
