How to Personalize Your Manufactured Home: 10 Easy Updates to Make Your Space Your Own

Need some ideas for how to personalize your manufactured home? We’ve got you covered with these 10 easy updates to make your space feel like home! No power tools required.

Spring is just around the corner and there’s nothing better than soaking up those first warm, sunny days of the year. After being cooped up inside all winter, you’re probably feeling the urge to refresh your house with a little spring cleaning – us too! It’s also the perfect time of year to spruce up your manufactured home and add some personal touches. 

While manufactured homes offer an affordable and flexible housing option, they can also have a bit of a generic look that lacks the warmth and character of a personalized space. But it doesn’t have to stay that way! We’ve put together a few simple ways to personalize your manufactured home so that it feels totally “you.” 

10 Easy Ways to Personalize Your Manufactured Home

Do you feel like your manufactured home is lacking that personal touch? Not to worry! Your manufactured home is a blank canvas just waiting for your unique style to make it home. In fact, you can change just about anything inside a manufactured home that you could in a traditional stick-built home.

Here are 10 fun and creative ways to personalize your manufactured home, both inside and out:


1. Paint

Paint is your best friend when it comes to personalizing your manufactured home. A new paint job can completely transform the vibe of your home, whether you prefer bold accent walls or a soft, calming palette. 

2. Textiles

Soften up your space with textiles: curtains, rugs, blankets, and throw pillows. Look for fabrics and textures that reflect your unique style. Textiles are a great way to add pops of color to your home as well!

3. Lighting

Updating the lighting goes a long way towards making your space your own. Invest in statement light fixtures that suit your taste, and don’t forget to layer your lighting with a mix of overhead lights, floor lamps, and table lamps for a cozy and inviting atmosphere. 

4. Hardware

Along the same lines as lighting, hardware is easy to replace and makes a big impact. Swap out any outdated or “blah” hardware with something you really love. If you prefer a classic look, go with a matte black option, or if you love a trendier look, go gold!

5. Artwork

When you’re trying to personalize your manufactured home, or any home, decorating with curated artwork is a must! Whether you put together a gallery wall of family pictures or go thrifting for some hand-painted treasures, adding this personal touch to your home will make it feel truly yours.


1. Landscaping

It’s spring after all! Landscaping around your manufactured home is the perfect way to transform the outdoor area into your own unique space. Plant colorful flowers, shrubs, or even a little veggie garden to add curb appeal and make your house look like home. Don’t have much of a green thumb? Start with something small like a few window boxes full of flowers.

2. Door decor

Add a welcoming touch to your front door with a seasonal wreath or welcome sign. If you like DIY projects, this is a fun one to make yourself! You can find all the supplies you need at your local craft store and create something truly one-of-a-kind. 

3. Outdoor seating

Create a cozy outdoor seating area where you can relax and enjoy the fresh air. Get some comfortable chairs or a bench, add colorful cushions and throw blankets, and put your feet up!

4. String lights

What’s more fun and inviting than a porch with string lights on a warm night? Hanging up a few strands of string lights in the front or back of your home will create the perfect homey atmosphere in the evenings. Keep it super easy by using solar-powered string lights!

5. Bird feeders

Be hospitable to your local wildlife with a bird feeder or bird bath! Having regular feathered visitors to your feeder makes your home feel more like a personalized, intentional space. And as a bonus, you can improve your local bird I.D. skills.

There you have it – 10 easy ways to turn your manufactured home into a space that is truly your own! We hope these tips are helpful for you this spring, and into the seasons to come.
