How to Decorate a Trailer Home

Decorating a trailer home presents several challenges due to limited space and long & narrow dimensions. However the fact is that decorating a trailer home is no different than decorating a normal living place. With little creativity and innovation you can turn your space into a well decorated and stylish home. Below simple tips will help you make your trailer home look the best.


The exterior will build the first impression. Paint outside of your trailer home, front porch and steps with nice colors. You can also use a small set of chairs and tables to add a welcoming look.

Do not forget to add lots of colorful plants on the deck area, near steps, on trailers etc. However you should be careful that you do not add too much flowers that overwhelm the place. Grow plants or use some colorful potted plants that do not grow too high.

Walls & Ceiling:

Choosing a color scheme for your trailer home is the most important concern. Using lighter colors makes interior look bigger. You can add some nice textures to the walls by using faux painting techniques. Paint dark panels as white. It is advised to give your ceiling white color as it will make your ceiling look at height.


Consider renovating floors of your trailer home with light colors. You can use wood laminate in the floors of bedrooms and living room. You can also place some nice rugs matching your color scheme. Use large tile like laminate or wood tiles in the kitchen floor.

Windows & Curtains:

Use light curtains or stylish blinds that allow natural light enter your trailer home. You can make your window look longer by placing the curtain-rods above the actual window height.


It is always a good idea to place mirrors opposite to window to make room look spacious.

Lighting System:

Use modern globes for holding light bulbs. It is better to use frosted bulbs that emit soft light. Make dark corners look cozy by placing table lamps.


Do not overwhelm your home with lots of heavy furniture as it will dominate the room. Use small and delicate furniture.

Storage System:

Using closet systems will give your trailer home a nice and tidy look. Place boxes under the bed as additional storage area. You can also get some old drawers, add wheels to it, cover with nice cloth and place it under your bed.


Use delicate and less furniture, stylish curtains, flower vases and modern rugs to make your room look great. Using round tables in living room and dining room will work best.

You can decorate living room by using narrow or sectional furniture and wall arts. You can also place a plush-love seat and a recliner. Hang one or two large art pieces on the wall.

Decorate your bedroom by adding nice hanging baskets from the ceiling. Using nice quilted bed sheet matching room’s color theme will add more charm to the room. Place a nice rug in your bedroom. Use contemporary lamps and beautiful flower vase. In the dining room, use round dining table with a removable leaf and small chairs.


Keep your bathroom simple and tidy. Use simple and light shower curtains. Do not use too much accessories and use decorative baskets and boxes for placing small toiletries. Place wash clothes and hand towels on the shelves.


Use wooden flooring and light colors in the kitchen. Do not use too much accessories on the counter and use that space as storage area. Make sections inside cabinets by using static and hanging panels. Use small and simple lighting fixtures.
