This 1984 Chic Tiny Home is Amazing

This 1984 chic tiny home in a 55+ community in California was sold this summer for $74,504. At only 625 square feet, this one-bedroom/one-bath even includes a small addition and a large deck for entertaining.

Here’s a look at the listing:

This super chic mobile home was remodeled by an interior designer with many upgrades. Features include new kitchen upgrades with lots of cabinet space, a pantry, stainless steel appliances and counter, a lighted fan hood, new skylights, and a beautiful subway tile backsplash. Dine by the front bay windows, allowing plenty of natural light in the home. The gorgeous shutters were installed with new double-pane windows throughout. Step into the cozy living room, which features a red Malm wood-burning fireplace with new chimney piping for a warm fire on cold nights.

Outdoors: The rear deck is fully covered and private. There is a dog run for your pup and a fully fenced-in yard. Also added- a new swamp cooler, tankless water heater, foundation, newer furnace, new plumbing under the unit, new step-in shower w/ grab bars and shower head in the upgraded bathroom, and also freshly painted inside and out. 

1984 Chic Tiny Home Is Small but Inviting

There are so many decorating tips to be found in this 1984 chic tiny home! First, let’s talk about the furniture choices. When choosing furniture for small spaces, it’s important to pick pieces that don’t overwhelm the room. Also exposed legs are also a great way to make a small space seem larger.

Next, adding pops of color is a wonderful decor tip. Between the accent wall and the entrance door, the colors pull the room together in an unexpected way.

Finally, using a rug to center the room is another great tip to pull all the colors together.

Two Become One

Adding additional space to a mobile home can be tricky. However, the owners did a great job of making the small addition look like it had always been there. The wide opening perfectly bridges the two spaces, and the higher ceiling allows a transom window to bring in more natural light.
