The one thing most people know about manufactured homes is that they are affordable. It is important, however, to understand that manufactured homes, very often, are indeed essential. Their minimalistic interior design is a huge plus point! If you would like your home to feature more ornamentation, you can always add your own furnishings. The simple design allows for a great deal of flexibility. 

Here are some tips on how you can transform your manufactured home interior in MCM’s Laurelwood community in Asheville, North Carolina so it is more comfortable without breaking the bank.

Address Design Challenges

Interior design mistakes can be avoided or fixed with paint and other materials that add style and color. For example, one common mistake is the lack of natural light. Leave windows uncovered in the living room, kitchen, and other rooms where you spend most time. That allows sunlight to come through and brighten your interior.

Another challenge is air quality.  Sometimes, there may be air quality issues with your home; this happens with many different house types. Fortunately, with manufactured homes, these issues can be quickly resolved due to the simple and easy-to-deal-with design of manufactured homes. You may use a dehumidifier to control humidity levels and to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. You can also keep the windows open regularly and install a ceiling fan in every room of your home for circulation purposes (this helps circulate fresh air!).

Replace Old Floors

One of the easiest ways to transform your manufactured home interior is to replace old floors with new ones. New floors are much easier to clean and more durable and comfortable. The flooring may need a bit of preparation, but once it’s done, you’ll be able to enjoy a more relaxing living space.

Add Surprising Decor Elements

Unsurprisingly, many people decide not to decorate their homes at all. They want a place they can live and sleep. However, this is not the best idea because without any sprucing up, your home will feel like it’s missing something.

You can solve this by using unexpected decor elements to make your home stand out. For example, you could add a few potted plants on your patio or hang some beautiful artwork on your living room wall. 

Light Sources in Each Room

An excellent way to transform your manufactured home interior is by adding light where you need it. You can do this by simply placing a light in each room. This could be a lamp, overhead, or even an accent light. If you have a lot of windows in your home, then these are also great lighting options as they’ll allow more natural light into the room. Another option is to add some lighting to your living room or dining room area. This will create a sense of space and give the effect that there is more going on than what actually is.

Use Color to Your Advantage

Another top way to make your manufactured home attractive is to use color. It doesn’t have to be a lot of colors, but it’s fun and can add pop to a room. This is especially important for small spaces. For instance, a colorful accent wall in an otherwise bland room can liven things up and make the space feel alive. This also gives you the opportunity as an interior decorator to play around with paint colors that you might not usually do in your own home.

For example, why not create a dramatic ceiling painting in a living room? It might seem like that would get too dark, but it will appear very interesting and distinct if you paint it lighter on the upper half and darker on the bottom half.

Use Vertical Space to Your Advantage

The majority of manufactured homes have a small living space. You can quickly maximize the small space by using vertical space. One way to do this is by hanging your laundry on the ceiling. Not only does this solve that problem, but it’s also easier to reach with just one arm than on the floor. This will help you be more comfortable in your home and feel less claustrophobic.
