Depending on the theme you want to create in your mobile home, options for decorating are virtually endless. Some people are interested in a cohesive theme that encompasses every room, while others enjoy varying designs and color schemes. Modular homes afford just as much decorating opportunity as any other type of home. You can even look at a new mobile house for sale for fresh decorating ideas, particularly when it’s a showroom-quality, staged home.
Trends in Home Decorating
If you are at a loss when it comes to the popular trends in home decorating, try browsing through popular home magazines to get some inspiration. These magazines usually have pictures, and sometimes prices, of the items they used to decorate. Many will also tell you where you can purchase some of the items.
Styles for Modular Homes
Turning a house into a home can be done easily by adding your own style and flair to the interior design. For instance, a vintage country style is a popular theme for many modular homes. All you need is a distressed, white-washed wood look to turn average décor into a luxurious display of vintage style. You can even purchase used furniture from the classifieds and distress the wood yourself.
Your Decorating Approach
You can take several different approaches to decorating your new or pre-owned mobile home. Determining which approach you will take will help you plan your design. Some people prefer a minimalist approach to create a clean and simple living space, while others favor eastern philosophies of decorating with the principles of feng shui. You may even discover that you like a combination of styles and take a transitional approach, which is very popular among today’s professional interior designers.

Nearly 25 percent of site-built and modular homes use septic systems for their sanitation needs. If you are among this group, precautions must be taken to ensure that your septic system remains in good condition. By adhering to the following guidelines, you can easily preserve the integrity of your septic system and avoid future problems.
1. Do not use commercial cleaners, antibacterial soaps, or bleach. If your mobile home has a septic system, you must be cautious regarding the usage of any harsh chemicals or antibacterial agents. Your septic tank harbors beneficial bacteria that help break down solid waste. However, artificial chemicals will kill these helpful bacteria and cause solids to back up and obstruct your septic system.
2. Avoid flushing products that can be thrown away through other means. Though bacteria can be highly effective in breaking down the solids in your septic systems, they cannot handle large amounts of manufactured waste. Therefore, avoid flushing Q-tips, cotton balls, feminine products, diapers, paper towels, or any other materials aside from toilet paper.
3. Spread out your water needs. Regardless of your modular home’s accommodations, be prudent with how you use them. For example, don’t let family members take showers at the same time. More importantly, don’t take multiple showers while running loads of laundry. Circumstances such as these will put undue stress on your septic system. Instead, balance out your water usage to ensure that your septic system will continue to run as efficiently as possible.
4. Be conservative with your garbage disposal. Though foodstuffs are natural forms of waste, they still can strain your septic system’s capabilities. When possible, throw away food waste, or better yet, composite it for future garden use. If you must use your garbage disposal, thoroughly grind food particles before allowing them to go down the drain. By keeping these tips in mind, you can enjoy a smooth-running septic system that will efficiently serve your mobile home for years to come.
