One of the ways you can customize a new mobile home or update an existing home is to select flooring that complements the room and provides durable functionality. For the most part, choosing flooring for a mobile home is like choosing flooring for any home, but there are some special considerations to keep in mind while shopping.
Mobile home flooring options are as varied as flooring options for other residences. You can select from a variety of materials, including:
There are seemingly endless options when it comes to colors, textures and patterns. Having an idea of the room’s color scheme and expected foot traffic will help narrow your options.
Like in any home, the flooring you choose should suit the purpose of the room. At Fiesta Homes, we typically recommend:

Flooring cost is a consideration for nearly every home buyer or home renovator, which often makes laminate and carpet favorable options over hardwood flooring and some types of tile.
Mobile home buyers and owners do need to consider some factors when selecting flooring that other homeowners do not. For instance, mobile home subflooring is often made of lighter particle board rather than heavier plywood. As a result, there may be weight limits on flooring material that the subflooring can support. Heavy ceramic tile throughout your home, for instance, may exceed the subflooring’s capacity.
The way mobile homes rest on a large pocket of air and the wicking properties of subflooring material make mobile home flooring more vulnerable to warping because of moisture. Proper construction and insulation (and prompt attention to any plumbing issues) will go a long way in preventing flooring issues. However, selecting flooring that provides more flexibility and/or minimizes the appearance of unevenness—i.e., laminate, carpet—may be better choices.
