6 Remodeling Ideas for Your RV

Written by Kimberly

When it’s time to remodel your RV, you don’t need to worry. Whether you’re giving your old camper a remodel, or personalising a new RV, there are several ways to transform and update your RV without breaking the bank. You also don’t need to do everything all at once. You can remodel your RV in stages to reduce the financial burden.

Replacing the Furniture

One of the easiest ways to update the look of your RV is to replace the furniture. You need to remove all the big and over-stuffed furniture, and replace it with more modern styles. This will give you more breathing space in the RV, and make it feel cleaner. You may want to check out the IKEA Store for a wide selection of furniture and accessories. Consider simple accessories like cushions and blankets to add that homely touch on the cheap.

Removing Wallpaper

Another easy remodeling idea is to remove the old wallpaper and borders throughout your RV. Taking down the wallpaper will give your RV a completely different look, by making it feel more modern with clean lines, brightening and enhancing darker furniture with light colours, or toning down too bright areas with some darkness. Swapping out the RV wall coverings will allow you to fill the RV with your style.

Changing the Curtains and Blinds

If you want another easy change, you need to consider changing the curtains and blinds throughout your RV. You may want to consider updating the style and colors throughout your RV to match the rest of the remodel, or simply to get rid of old, dirty, or ineffective blinds. If you replace the curtains and blinds with lighter colors, the RV will look bigger and more open.

Painting or Refinishing the Kitchen

Another easy way to change the look in your RV is to paint and refinish your kitchen table, chairs and cabinets. If your kitchen table and chairs came painted white, one fun option is to strip the paint and refinish them with a stain and seal for a natural wood finish. If the chairs have cushions, consider changing the material for a fresh look.

Adding a Backsplash

There’s another option for updating your RV kitchen: adding a backsplash to the kitchen. A simple backsplash will add a new look to the kitchen, and make for easier cleanup after cooking. Whether you choose to tile it or simple add an adhesive vinyl wall covering, adding a backsplash doesn’t have to take a lot of time or money. You can generally install the backsplash within an hour.

Decorating the Walls

An inexpensive way to make your RV feel more like home is to add pictures and decorations on the walls and shelves. You can choose themes or colors for your RV, so you can really show your creativity with how and what you put on the walls. Just keep in mind, because of the limited space you will want to keep the decorations as flat as possible. You should also look into tacking down any wall decorations either with nails and screws or with a reusable adhesive putty to prevent them falling off the walls.
