Redecorate Your Manufactured Home without Breaking the Bank

I get so frustrated with home decor magazines. First, because they never share ideas to redecorate your manufactured home, and secondly because they act like buying an $800 sink is just an average remodel for most people.

My home only cost $5,000, there’s no way I would or could pay $800 for a single item to update my home.  I only spent $300 on my entire living room suite! Some of us simply can’t spend a lot of money to decorate our homes and that’s OK. You don’t have to spend a lot to live stylishly and comfortably. Flea markets, auctions, Goodwill, and consignment stores are great places to buy home decor and furniture.

Change is Good

By change, I mean changing the furniture or accessories around. Use what you already have in new places and in new ways. That rug in the bedroom could look great in the living room. That small table in the bedroom could be a perfect fit in the home office. Sometimes just moving things around or pulling pieces from one room to another is enough to give your space a nice fresh perspective.

Collections make great gallery walls

Years ago, the big trend was to paint one wall a bold color to create a focal point or accent wall. Nowadays, the accent wall is created with collections and called a gallery wall. Pull out those family pictures and create a cohesive display on your hallway wall. Gather all the mirrors in the house and create a gallery wall that will bounce light around and help make the room seem larger. It’s great for hallways, bedrooms, bathrooms, or living rooms.

Bookcases or wooden crates can become tables or turned on their side and placed under a window with a few pillows to create a cute reading nook. A rug or even tree branches can become wall art.

Paint is the BEST Redecorating Tool We Have

Paint is a favorite way to redecorate your manufactured home. Nothing else can completely change a room as fast as a gallon of paint. Today’s paint technology allows one-coat coverage in many situations, just make sure the walls are clean. Walls with darker colors or stains should be primed. Two or three light coats are better than just one or two heavy coats and let the paint dry between coats.
