A travel trailer is transformed into a beach paradise in this great makeover!
This home is featured on a blog called Two Berti’s that’s published by a lovely lady named Katie. She’s a talented blogger with an eye for home decor and design and regularly shares beautiful home tours, remodels and DIY tips. Be sure to stop over and say hello!
The home belongs to her parents and is located in a mobile home community called Six Foot Bay, a luxury mobile home community in Canada. Katie states:
My parents sold our family cottage last year and made the move to a trailer. Now, this isn’t just any trailer park, it is equipped with a golf course, salt water pool, pub, kids park, volleyball/basketball/tennis courts. My parents picked an older trailer that needed some work but was in a prime location right on the 18th hole of the golf course looking over the lake. They have an end one with lots of privacy and space. so let me take you on a tour…..
Before and After
The before and after photos of this home makeover basically speak for themselves so I’ll let them do all the talking. I would like to point out this is, in reality, a very large camper with tip outs. It has a full kitchen and bath and is obviously very spacious.
Here are some great mobile home decorating ideas:
The flooring is a perfect match for the beach theme. It has the weathered wood look and the colors are reminiscent of the sand. It’s dark enough to give the white walls and decor a stage and light enough to not overpower. This was a great choice!
Don’t ya just love it?
How to Achieve This Look:
Your home can be a sophisticated shabby chic beach paradise, too! The 2 easiest changes would be using color and unique decor pieces.
Adding white or a light tone to the walls and cabinetry is a great way to achieve this style. It’s supposed to be clean and fresh and white evokes that perfectly but light blue, cream, and even light grey work well. If you do use white make sure it is soothing and not too stark.
Using the same color on walls, furniture and cabinetry neutralize the room completely and that’s ideal for the beach style.

The decor and furniture are really the stars here, as they should be. Letting their shape and texture define them and not the color is a soothing treat for the eye. You want the decor to evoke the idea of your theme and beach themed decor usually looks worn and faded.
As always, thank you for reading Mobile Home Living!

Just discovered this website and I LOVE it! I purchased a trailer last year, 1972 doublewide, and am working on remodeling. This site has given me so much inspiration and so many ideas! LOVE IT!
I really like white in a trailer. It looks so clean, so fresh, retro and yet modern at the same time.
Glad you found us! Hope to hear from you lots more!
Was hoping to see some thing more modern then Better Home and Garden. Something earthy yet unique.
HELP!!! just bought a double wide mobile home its square shaped. I am on a very tight budget single mom with two boys with autism and I I am disabled with cervical dystonia. its a movement disorder like Parkinson’s disease. I have great, good and bad days. I am very handy I used to restore furniture (pressed wood) Wood) make home décor ( Hand painted beach and nautical type décor. can I send you pictures so you can give me ideas of what to do with my small awkward space Please. I hope to hear from you. I love your ideas and work but nothing matches the shape of my home.
Hi Jeanine! To be honest, I think I’ve only seen a few ‘square’ manufactured homes that I can recall, they were smaller, or at least not very long.
I would imagine decorating them would be just like any other home. Focus on getting the walls painted, smaller homes look a bit better when you paint the entire home similar colors (so that the entire space works together), use functional or multi-purpose furniture, and keep wall decor at eye level. You can look through the site and find lots of great inspiration and ideas – there’s over 300 articles here for you.
I’m writing an article about small space decorating so hopefully that will help you a bit too. It should be finished up later today. Thanks so much for reading MHL and taking the time to comment! If there’s anything else I can help you with don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks!
Love it! I normally lean towards wood tones, but the bright white is so perfect for a cottage by the lake. Great transformation.
We have to re-do the flooring in our travel trailer and I’ve been looking at a product very similar to the one in this cottage.
Hi Shirlee! I think the flooring is great! It goes with the beach theme so well. I hope all is well with you and your enjoying the cool fall weather!
