Before & After: 9 Mobile Home Remodels You Have to See to Believe

We’ve talked before on the MHVillager about different ways to remodel your mobile home. If you’re getting ready to start a mobile home remodel, you might want to see other projects that can make your home shine. 

It’s always satisfying to see “before and after” photos of a mobile home remodel done right. So, we’ve put together a list of some of the best mobile home remodels out there to give you some inspiration for your next remodel project. 

  1. A Stand-Out Single-Wide Mobile Home Renovation

There are times where it can be challenging to remodel a mobile home if you’ve recently moved into one. The previous owner may have left some belongings behind, you may want to switch out the carpet for hardwood, or perhaps even add new life to your mobile home kitchen. 

The team over at Living Hope Renovations did all of that and more in a series of videos from 2021 chronicling the before and after of their single-wide mobile home remodel. 

Perhaps the most notable standout of the project is the kitchen, which features updated cabinetry while keeping the vintage 80s countertops. Of course, they took advantage of their tall windows facing out into the yard. Because they let in so much natural light, it made sense to remodel around those.

If you’re looking for a great mobile home remodel that mixes old with new, look no further.

  1. An Exterior Mobile Home Remodel That Shows Off The Goods

When remodeling the exterior of your mobile home, you have many factors to consider. Do you want to remodel your skirting and siding? What about updating your mobile home’s external A/C unit, if it has one? Maybe you even have the opportunity to update your mobile home’s windows. 

YouTuber Timothy P. Livingston, who tours and remodels homes all over the country, checked off all three of those boxes during a recent mobile home remodel. He started by replacing the mobile home’s siding with a modern faux-wood finish. Then, he installed an all-new A/C unit that promotes energy efficiency. 

After a quick refresh to the skirting, he refitted the windows to give the exterior a sleeker look. All of these renovations made the exterior of this mobile home really stand out and bring this mobile home into the modern day.

  1. Freshening Up a Mobile Home Farmhouse

Many mobile homeowners prefer a more rustic feel to their home. For some, this means moving into a farmhouse-style mobile home with decor to match. Of course, this may involve some mobile home remodeling to get the look you’re going for. 

A YouTube influencer of all things rustic living, Living it Country toured a mobile home that had been remodeled to achieve that farmhouse-like aesthetic. This remodel project involved completely removing a center column and upgrading the home’s walls. Not only that, but the floors were completely redone, too. What was once tile and spare carpet turned into beautiful hardwood flooring throughout. 

With dark wood finishes and all-white walls and cabinets, this mobile home remodel is one that achieves the farmhouse look in style. Head to 4:07 in the video to check out their work.

  1. A Double-Wide Mobile Home Remodel

It goes without saying that not all mobile home remodels are one-size-fits-all. Larger mobile homes, such as double-wides, may require more work during a remodel. This is simply because of its larger size compared to a single-wide mobile home. 

But, that didn’t stop approachthemike and his family from remodeling their double-wide mobile home. From installing a new deck to touching up the trim and crown moulding, this mobile home remodel is one that you have to see to believe. They even replaced flooring that had been damaged by a faulty water heater. 

The exterior of the home post-remodel is where things really get interesting. They fully repainted the mobile home exterior and added all-new skirting. Fun fact: in installing that new deck we mentioned, it took Mike and his family several THOUSAND screws – and a broken drill along the way – to get the job done.

  1. Taking A Mobile Home Apart And Putting It Back Together

Some DIY aficionados that remodel mobile homes may choose to completely replace everything. The doors, the windows, the walls, the whole shebang. That’s exactly what the folks over at DIYfferent did with their recent mobile home remodel. 

They turned a fixer-upper mobile home into a modern beauty by replacing everything they possibly could. This included the siding, the roof, and even some of the wood within the home’s walls. Their goal, they said, was to make a home that they liked themselves, without the hangups of professional interior design. 

“Everybody’s gotta do their own thing,” DIYfferent host Doug says in his video.

That said, their mobile home makeover certainly looks the part of being a professional job, with beautiful white siding and an all-new shingle roof that shines thanks to some stellar tree removal.

  1. Cooking Up A Kitchen-Focused Mobile Home Remodel

The kitchen often gets the most attention during a mobile home remodel, and for good reason. It’s the room you spend a LOT of your time in. Cooking, cleaning, entertaining, and more. So, when going through a mobile home remodel, you may be giving extra thought to how you can spice up your kitchen. 

Let LifeWithDanie’s manufactured home kitchen remodel give you some inspiration. After taking out their old cabinets and wallpaper, they gave the kitchen an all-new modern look with sleek white cabinets. 

One of the highlights of their mobile home kitchen remodel are the countertops. Their old countertops were replaced with a marble-style countertop finish, complementing the white cabinets quite nicely. The added lighting fixtures are also a great touch hanging over the new kitchen island! You can check it all out by checking out the video below at the 2:18 mark.

  1. Remodeling A Mobile Home From The 1960s

If you’re remodeling a mobile home built before the HUD Code was enacted in 1976, you may have some extra considerations to think about. You may need to revamp some things so that they’re HUD Code compliant. Or, you may have to replace some hazardous materials that are in your home. 

YouTuber LittleLyman took a mobile home built in the 1960s and saved it from demolition within the park that he manages. This involved taking up some of the flooring that had been rotten through, as well as a full kitchen remodel. A new sink, countertops, and cabinets, along with all-new appliances, help bring this mobile home to life!

After plenty of hard work and “a few dozen coffees” (in LIttleLyman’s words), his mobile home is looking like the cream of the crop. If you’re getting ready to remodel a mobile home, LittleLyman’s remodel is a great example of how you can turn the old into new.

  1. Remodeling A Mobile Home For Your Family

Families that live in mobile homes should have a home that’s clean, upscale, and modern. So, a mobile home remodel for families is one way to get there. This may involve laying down new flooring that’s stain-resistant or upgrading your furniture for those family movie nights. 

Rachall and her family over at Johnson Branch Farm recorded their experience as they remodeled their single-wide mobile home over the course of a year. The results were quite stunning, to say the least. 

Along the way, they found new methods of repurposing old furniture for their family, too. For example, old cabinets turned into storage units for remotes and DVDs. The bedrooms were remodeled with the future in mind, too. Her daughter’s room has a subtle, neutral tone that allows for new design ideas as she grows older.
