Park model homes are best known for their second story, a design descending from the 2-story mobile homes that became so popular in the 1950s.

Most park model homes are marketed as temporary or seasonal living structures and are not classified as a manufactured home. Park model homes that have less than 400 square feet(or 540 sq. ft. in Canada) of living space are titled, registered, insured, and taxed as recreational vehicles. This classification relaxes building code requirements since they are not permanent dwellings.

The Cozy Beach Cottage 

This home is a feast for the eyes and includes lots of great park model home decorating ideas that you could use in your own home!

I found this beautiful park model home at, a website where people can rent their properties out by the night, week, or month. The home is a 3-minute walk from the beach in Encinitas, CA. It has one bedroom and one bath along with a small sleeping area on the second floor, sleeping 4 comfortably. It is available for $158 per night. The home measures in at 480 square feet so it has likely been classified as a manufactured home.

Park Model Home Decorating Ideas for Your Exterior

This park model home may be small but it has plenty of curb appeal.

There are lots of great decorating ideas used on the exterior of this home. First, the siding is painted with a natural blue/ gray color reminiscent of grass and sea. Secondly, a bold white color was chosen for the trim to create contrast and accent the home’s architectural features.  Lastly, lush landscaping gives the home bulk, helping to ground it to the space, and tall vines strategically placed to frame the home draws the eye up, making it appear larger than it is.

The kitchen is decorated in a warm old world country style.

Decorating a small kitchen can be challenging if you don’t know a few tricks used by designers. One of the easiest tricks is to paint much of the interior space in a light, neutral color. Structural elements such as ceilings, walls, and cabinetry painted the same light color helps reflect light and makes a space seem larger.

  1. I am very interested in buying a park model home to live in. I really loved the tips that you gave on decorating them. I really like the use of shelves that you showed in several of the pictures. I think I will try something like that.

    1. Hi Sammy,

      I absolutely LOVE park model homes. I wish they were classified as manufactured homes instead of RVs – that would open up so many opportunities for people. Right now, they aren’t allowed in many places besides campgrounds.

      If you get one please share it with us. I don’t get a lot of park models so I usually just find them on real estate sites.
      Thank you!
