buildGo ahead and remodel your Rose Lake Estate home! Winter is the perfect time to tackle a do-it-yourself project. Plus, the good resale prices of manufactured homes and high quality building standards make updating a great investment.

Because many mobile homes don’t offer much latitude in making grand-scale changes to construction, your best bet is to focus remodeling efforts on the cosmetic features that make the biggest impact. The kitchen and bathrooms are the two areas will give you the most bang-for-your-buck back on your investment.

Here are some great affordable ideas to get you started:

  • Consider simple cosmetic updates such as changing out kitchen cabinet hardware. Swap out old black or gold hardware for pewter, stainless or rubbed brass.
  • Replace old faucets and lighting fixtures in the kitchen and the bathrooms. Go for a sleek, modern look.
  • Replace worn cabinet doors with new faces. Or paint cabinets to give them a bright facelift. White or off-white cabinets instead of darker wood tones can really brighten a kitchen.
  • Don’t overlook countertops. There are many granite-like countertop materials available that can completely change the feel of your kitchen or bathroom.
  • Consider taking out the bathroom sink and replacing it with a bowl sink and cabinet below.

It is often the small details that can make all the difference in a mobile home. Whether you remodel a little at a time, or in one fell swoop, plan ahead, work with safety in mind, ask for help if you need it, and… have some creative fun!
