Remodel a Mobile Home Kitchen | News | Allens Caravans
Allens Caravans

Mobile homes are an increasingly popular choice for those looking to leave the hustle and bustle of bricks and mortar life, instead, opting to embrace the quaint, relaxed lifestyle that comes with park living.

Modern mobile homes offer residents all the same benefits as traditional houses and then some, with an increased sense of community and an added layer of security coming as standard. Here at Allens Caravans, we manage a number of residential caravan parks across the UK, with all our residents enjoying the above-listed benefits from the comfort of their luxury mobile homes.

We have a broad selection of mobile homes for sale across our parks, ranging from brand new homes to older, pre-loved properties. Each home is finished to a great standard, but as with traditional houses, it’s to be expected that sometimes, you might want to change certain aesthetic aspects to better suit your personal taste and put your own stamp on the place.

For some, this might be as little as changing the wallpaper or the carpets, but more so in the case of older homes, a kitchen remodel might be on the cards.

There is a stereotype that mobile homes are small and cramped and therefore there are limitations on the fixtures and fittings that can be installed, but this is most certainly not the case. Mobile homes are akin to bungalows in the sense that they often offer just as much space, but they typically benefit from an open-plan living layout, giving you more space to play with when thinking about your kitchen remodel.

If you’re concerned about how to go about remodelling your mobile home kitchen, keep reading as we detail the best way to go about it and top things you will want to consider.

If you’re concerned about how to go about remodelling your mobile home kitchen, keep reading as we detail the best way to go about it and top things you will want to consider.

Layout 

First and foremost, you need to think about the layout of your mobile home. Most tend to be open plan, giving you more freedom with regards to the format of your kitchen. You will want to think about the layout that best works for you; for example, would you get any use out of installing an island? If your mobile home already has an island but you don’t anticipate using it, you might want to consider removing it in favour of further opening up space in your kitchen.

You’ll also want to think logically about how space will work. For example, you’ll want to make sure your oven and fridge are not next to each other, and you’ll also want to think about functional counter space. It’s a good idea to have kitchen counters next to both the oven and the fridge, and you’ll also want to think about bin placement because you won’t want foul odours exasperated by the heat of the oven.

Storage

In addition to functional appliance layout, you’ll want to think about storage, too. Mobile homes typically afford you a large kitchen area which means you don’t need to worry about throwing out any of your crockery, utensils or cooking aids, but you might want to think about where these items are going to be stored so that it’s most functional for you. For example, if you don’t already have a cupboard dedicated to pots and pans next to your over, think about integrating this into your kitchen remodel.

Integrated Appliances

One major benefit of a kitchen refit is that you can integrate appliances into your counters, therefore reducing clutter on your countertops. Older mobile homes may still have separate ovens, dishwashers and fridges, but it’s now standard for these to be built into cupboards. Not only does this look sleeker, but it also means you can save space. For example, you can get your oven and microwave installed vertically on top of each other.

Most of our brand new mobile homes have integrated appliances and so, if you’re looking for inspiration, they’re a great place to start. For example, the Stately Kensington mobile home features an electric hob with a separate micro combi oven. In addition, there is a wine rack cooler built into the island. This results in a super stylish, uncluttered finish.

How to Remodel a Mobile Home Kitchen 

When it comes to the practical side of remodelling a kitchen, it’s best to hire a team of professionals. Although you may have a mobile home, it’s no different to refitting the kitchen in a brick and mortar house. Electrics will need to be considered, as will pipework and ventilation. If you’re looking for a quick DIY update, you might be able to replace existing cupboard doors yourself, but if you’re seeking a comprehensive refit, it’s best to enlist the help of professional kitchen fitters.

During the Remodel 

When your residential park home kitchen is being refitted, you may find you have restricted access and might not be able to fully use your kitchen for a period of time. You will need to think about how best to prepare meals, such as cooking in bulk prior to the refit and freezing large batches so that you can heat them up and eat them during the refit.

Our residential parks offer a great sense of community, so you might find that your neighbours will let you use their kitchen whilst yours is being refitted.
