5 Ways to Personalize Your RV to Make it Feel Like Home
One of the best benefits of traveling in an RV and RV camping in general, other than not sleeping in a tent on the ground, is having all of the amenities and comforts of home while you are on the road. RV living is much more relaxing and enjoyable when you have a familiar resting place. This can mean anything from a cozy living room to a tranquil outdoor patio space. But let’s be honest – your typical RV can look nice as you drive it off the lot for the first time, but it’s just not YOU.
Let us show you how to change that to make your RV truly your own.
Paint the Walls and Cabinets to Your Liking
It is amazing what a little paint can do to dramatically transform the look of your RV to suit your specific tastes. If your walls and cabinets are currently too dark, painting them white or other light color will immediately make the space feel much larger than it is. Choose colors that “give you the feels” and make you comfortable. Choose a color combination between your walls and cabinets that are complementary, or choose inviting, easy-to-apply wallpaper for a quick transformation.
Adorn with Wall Décor
Without a doubt, this is the easiest way to spruce up your RV living space. Add your own special touch to decorate the walls, whether it be art, fun wall hangings, or your own creations. Some ideas might be family photos, inspiring quotes, photography pieces, or whatever makes you happy! If you don’t want to poke holes in your RV walls, use Command hooks, putty, or Velcro to hang. They work wonders and are very stable.
Next, Pay Attention to the Floors
Most RVs come standard with laminate flooring. While this is easy to care for, it’s just kind of ‘blah’ and not exactly comfortable. Putting small area rugs in strategic places, such as near sitting areas, in the kitchen, and at the foot of the bed can not only add some color and texture to your space, it creates some separation between living areas. Runners are helpful for heavy traffic areas, and every bathroom needs a fun bath mat, no matter how small.
Add Some Cozy Curtains
Curtains and valances do wonders for giving a utilitarian RV space a homey look to make it warm and inviting. You can buy the same lightweight, adjustable curtain rods you would for any house. Finding the correct length of curtains may be a challenge, but can easily be hemmed using a sewing machine or hem tape and an iron. The sky’s the limit here; use your imagination with fabric and texture.
Finish with Throw Pillows and Blankets
Top off your RV transformation by adding a few choice pillow accents and blankets to your living and bedroom areas. Having a comfortable place to relax is what a home is all about. It’s also a great way to compliment the color of your walls and other décor. If you choose to leave your walls alone, adding a pop of color with pillows and blankets does wonders to brighten up the space. If you already have pillows but don’t like the color, simply buy or make pillow covers in whatever color or pattern you choose.
