We’ve shared a lot of ideas to update kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and living rooms in mobile homes. However, we’ve neglected kids bedroom ideas in a mobile home completely. Children need stylish bedrooms too!
Adults want soothing and calm bedrooms but kids usually want the exact opposite.
Kids bedrooms can be so much fun! It’s a great way to add a shot of color to your home and make your children smile in the process.
I’ll never forget how much fun Livi had when I let her choose everything for her new bedroom in our 1978 single wide. We had just moved two hours away from all of our friends and family and that was tough on an 8-year old. I had always decorated her rooms with her input but this time she picked everything – bright lime green and bright hot pink. She loved it. That smile was as bright as the walls!
Many of the images below are from the now-defunct TV show called Mobile Home Disasters. You can see more rooms from that show in our article 25 Great Mobile Home Decorating Tips.
1. Field of Dreams
One of the easiest ways to decorate your child’s bedroom is letting the child choose a theme. Keep things from getting too wild by narrowing it down to 3 themes and letting them pick one.
The little boy living in this double-wide mobile home loved baseball so they ran with it for the kids bedroom ideas in a mobile home section of the show.
The designers hit a home run by creating a little boy his own little field of dreams (I knocked this sentence out of the park, y’all – I ran with the theme and slid in so many baseball puns!)
Blue skies with clouds and green carpet can be a canvas for so many themes. Little details help tell the story. This could just be a pretty day at the park but the small baseballs on the bed frame and the glove pillow turn a pretty day at the park into an exciting day at the baseball field.
The fence wainscoting is a neat feature. It certainly adds visual interest and texture but it also continues the baseball theme. Adding hooks to the fence would help the organization.
Themes don’t have to be crazy. Keep in mind that many of the bedrooms you’re seeing here were done for a TV show so they are way above and beyond what most parents would do. Still, there are some cute ideas.
2. Paint, Paint, Paint
This kids bedroom is perfect for a pre-teen that loves music and pink. All it took was a gallon of paint.
Affordable wall art can be made out of anything. In this case, a little purple/blue accent color for the musical notes. They even added a lighter purple to give the notes a 3D look.
If painting isn’t your thing you can buy musical notes on Amazon for $3.00 and just tape them up.
3. Murals are Magical
This third kids bedroom ideas in a mobile home is magical and perfect for a little girl that loves unicorns. Turning one wall into a work of art is easier than you think and no artistic talent is needed with a full wall mural. Some of them can be expensive but you can find large murals on Amazon for $60.
Kids want a room that reflects their interests and tastes. This room is out of this world! It would be perfect for anyone that like unicorns.
The is such a cute unicorn wall mural! It’s $34.99 and 49″x31″.
If an entire mural is out of your comfort zone you could always add a cute unicorn wall light. It’s almost 10″ tall for $9.99 – not bad.
4. Thrifty 3D Accents
This bedroom is perfect for any kid that loves soccer. The creativity behind this room is pretty cool. First, they painted the room with a darker color on the lower half and a lighter color on the top. Then, they added a real soccer goal net to create a 3D accent wall. They can add photos and other light mementos on the net for a little more personalization.
5. Cool Headboard is a Perfect Kids Bedroom Idea for a Mobile Home
This next bedroom is perfect for a budding musician. If a full mural or 3D accent wall is just ‘too much’ you can let your child get creative by painting a cool headboard feature.
For this piano themed kids bedroom they painted the black and white keys on half a wall behind the bed. It gives the bed more prominence.
Painting piano keys wouldn’t be too difficult but you can buy a piano mural for $17. They have cute rugs for $21.
6. Happy Halves
It can be tough if two children have to share one bedroom. It can be a little more tolerable if you give each child a space of their own. A little girl has her half of the bedroom in pink with little hearts sprinkled on the wall. The other half is all boy in a racing theme.
If painting roads make you uncomfortable you can always buy road tape. It’s $10.95 for 50 feet. There are so many cool things you could do with this!
7. Think Outside the…..Wall
Have a skateboarder in the family? This is a cute idea! Kids break skateboards all the time. A great way to put a favorite board on display is to attach it to the wall with a little creativity. A skateboarder is coming out of the wall!
8. This Kids Bedroom Idea for a Mobile Home Doesn’t Cost a Lot
If painting a kids bedroom some wild color makes you uncomfortable you can still make the kids smile with unique wall decor.
This bedroom was created for a kid that likes skateboarding so they airbrushed some old boards (or simply cut the shape of a skateboard out of wood).
A 6 pack of skateboard deck wall mounts are $24.99. You can find cheap boards at Walmart but for a truly frugal wall accent, you can get split/damaged boards at your local skate park.
9. Great Graffiti
Graffiti in your house? What?
The best kids bedroom ideas in a mobile home allow the child to express themselves in a controlled manner. Perhaps you can let the child paint large flat cardboard and then attach it to the wall with Command Hooks.
You can paint your own graffiti or just order a street art mural from Amazon for $30 (55″ x 40″).
10. Pretty Princess
Every little princess needs her own castle!
There are several ways you make the castle. Painting or papering over round concrete forms and 2″ foam board would work. Two of these canopies and a sheet stretched across would work too.
You don’t have to go all out as the designers did for Mobile Home Disaster. Just a little color and creativity can brighten up any kid’s room.
You could get two of these to act as the towers and then hang a sheet between them. This hanging canopy is $32 but there are cheaper ones.
Kids grow up so fast and so do their interests and likes. That’s probably why you can find cute kids room decor and bedding sets at consignment stores and Goodwill. Yard sales are a good place to find theme decor, too.
Bedding is important to creating cool kids bedroom ideas in a mobile home.
Sheet Set Review
I was gifted these California Design Den sheets a few months ago in exchange for a review. I don’t do a lot of reviews even though I’m asked quite a bit. I think this is my first in 3 years but I’m glad I said yes on these. Admittedly, I’ve never had $45 sheets before. I buy sets at dollar stores or Target or Walmart but these are much thicker and softer. They actually stay on our bed and I love the crispy heaviness of them if that makes sense? I guess I’ve learned yet another important life lesson: sheets are also a ‘get what you pay for’ product and having a nice thick set you can’t see through is pretty awesome!
You can see all the company’s sheets here. They sent me the 400 thread 100% cotton sheets in black. I can’t compare them to $100 sheets cause I’ve never had those but I give them two thumbs up – it’s a good product at a fair price. I paid $32 for the last queen sheet set I bought and these are definitely worth $12 more.
