Check out the four ideas below and then use the link at the bottom of the page to see the other five!

Mary and I love that many home improvements for mobile homes make for great DIY projects which are not only fun to do but also can save you money. For some improvements; however, it may be wise to hire a reputable mobile home contractor to ensure the work is performed correctly.

#6 - Update Your Mobile Home Siding

Your manufactured home deserves the best. One way to instantly improve its appearance (and your love for it) is to update the siding. You can change the color, style, material, while making it more energy efficient too.

Give It a Good Cleaning

If your mobile home siding is in good repair, perhaps it only needs to be thoroughly cleaned! Here's some helpful tips to do just that:

#7 - Update Your Front Door

Replacing your front door adds immediate appeal to almost any home and is one of our favorite mobile home improvement ideas.

What better way to greet friends and neighbors than by having them encounter an energy efficient and beautiful entranceway.

#8 - Replace Your Windows

Today's windows are not only energy efficient but also operate more easily. Reduce your energy bills and have a more modern look.

Mary and I know replacing windows is probably not on anyone's "most fun and exciting thing to do" list! It definitely wouldn't be on ours. However, there are times when you really need to replace them.

So if your windows need an upgrade consider windows specifically made for manufactured homes to ensure you get the best fit, style, and ultimate value for your money.

#9 - Create Curb Appeal

Creating wonderful landscaping around your mobile or manufactured home adds lots of curb appeal and is easy to do. There are simple things you can do to enhance the look of your yard.

Even if you do not have a green thumb, there are simple ways to create colorful arrays. And you don't have to make all the changes at once.

Create a plan and then add plants, walkways, etc., as time and money permit.

Local gardening stores can help find the same or similar plants that will work well in your geographical area.

Don't have the space? Container gardening and hanging planters are convenient ways to add color and landscaping with minimal space.

Spend some time in our front yard landscaping section to get lots of ideas you can use for your home.

Decorate and Furnish Your Porch

Whether you have a small portico, a smaller sized porch, or perhaps a wrap-around, adding outdoor decor along with comfortable furniture makes for an enjoyable outdoor experience.

There are a myriad of ways to decorate your porch, patio, or stoop to create curb appeal (and for your enjoyment too!).
