Replacement Kitchen Cabinets For Mobile Homes

mymobilehome February 6, 2012 at 6:42 pm Sure thing LJ! We have learned one really important lesson about things in mobile homes…REPLACE THEM with quality products as quickly as possible. Plumbing is a big one because mobile homes are so susceptible to water damage because the materials they are made out of are ruined by water so easily. Wall board, flooring, cabinetry under sinks, etc…they are all made of pretty low quality materials in older homes (pre-2000?) so minimally installing shut off valves under all sinks and in shower fixture plumbing was a big one in our experience. Another great tip I received about keeping cabinetry safe from water damage (especially once we replaced the vanities in the bathroom and the kitchen cabinetry) is to line the bottom interiors of the cabinets with sticky square flooring. Find something you like that looks nice and line the bottoms with it. It will look good, save them from wear and tear of pulling things in and out of them, and will keep water from making contact with the cabinetry. We will be doing some work on our skirting in the late Spring hopefully, so subscribe to our feed or Facebook page to keep up to date on the work we're doing. And as always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We're happy to share what we know. Good luck with your new home! It's a great thing to reuse a home that is already built and can be made into anything you want…all you need is your imagination! Reply

At about the 10 year mark, we decided that we were going to plan our kitchen remodel, but that it was too expensive a prospect to go at it with our full plan just yet.  When we do it right, we want new flooring, new walls (resurfaced), new appliances, molding, cabinets, counter-tops.  If it’s going to be in the kitchen, it’s going to be new!  So, at that point, we did a “patch-job” on the kitchen to get us by until we had time to do it right.  Our kitchen cabinets were painted, new snap and lock laminate flooring, new windows and trim (part of a larger whole-home replacement project), and the counter-tops were resurfaced in a cheap, labor intensive, DIY way.  This whole project (not including the windows) was less than $800 to complete.  We were satisfied with the results and it was enough to get us by without wanting to rip the cupboards off the wall each time we opened them.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo cathyyg Kitchen sink base cabinets come in more than one size, as in a single sink size versus a double sink size. 36 inches for a double sink base cabinet is pretty standard. I think that Lowe’s, HD and such are unaware of the simple fact that manufactured homes no longer use the odd 20-21 inch deep base cabinets that they used in the long ago past. They use standard 24 inch deep cabinets. And even in an older home that might have the odd sized cabinets there is no reason you can’t replace them with the standard size. Just be aware of the needed spaces in corners for doors and drawers to open and the free space needed to open the dishwasher and revrigerator. Like Bookmark May 17, 2015 at 6:03PM

When you start mounting the cabinets, you will need to install the upper cabinets first. Make sure that the upper cabinets in your mobile home are secured onto studs, as it will prevent them from falling when they’re full. Use a carpenter’s level to make sure that they’re straight. Use clamps to hold them in place while you install the other upper cabinets.
