Decorating tips for your park home

Whether you live there all year, or visit every other weekend, your park home should be as inviting, cosy and up to date as any other home. But with a smaller space to play with, it’s not always easy to get it right. Read on for our top tips to decorating your park home.

Colour blocking

Colour blocking walls makes rooms appear larger than fussy patterns. Park homes tend to look better wallpapered rather than painted, so try to find light colours such as light blue, light green and yellow for a spacious and brightening effect. It’s OK to have walls in different colours, but use a colour wheel to come up with a complementary colour scheme (i.e. blue and yellow).

Covered shelving

Effective storage space is an essential part of living in a park home. But sometimes you don’t want all your belongings out on display. Consider covering up some of your built-in storage shelves with a door for a more minimal look. Even those living in a park home need a hideaway ‘messy’ drawer or cupboard to put odds and ends in!



Mezzanine sleeping

Some residential park homes can’t really be adapted but others can, and if yours can, consider adding in mezzanine sleeping areas, especially for visiting grandchildren who won’t make use of the beds very often. This increases the amount of floor, and therefore, living space that you have to enjoy.

Choose modular furniture

Modular, or multi-purpose furniture, is the perfect option. Anything that can double up as something else saves you space, i.e. a sofa with under-seat storage or a table that becomes a seat. Your park home should be as inviting, cosy and up to date as any other home. But with a smaller space to play with, it’s not always easy to get it right.

Outdoor space

Park homes always come with some level of outdoor space, usually a terrace and a grassed area. Park homes at leading parks such as http://www.parkhomelife.com/ each come on their own beautiful plot where you can add your own choice of pot plants according to your tastes. If you are going to be spending extended periods away from the home, especially in winter, opt for low maintenance, hardy plants.

Decorating a park home is all about coming up with stylish, space-saving solutions and making the most of your outdoor area. Your park home should be as inviting, cosy and up to date as any other home. But with a smaller space to play with, it’s not always easy to get it right.
