Top Tips for Making Your RV Feel More Like Home
Updated: Oct 25
RVs are our home away from home, but they often don't feel as comfortable as our house. If you spend any length of time in your RV, you want to feel as comfy as possible. Here are our top tips to making your RV feel more like your home.
RVs usually feature light colors, neutral tones, and wood paneling. There's not much included in your RV to make it feel like yours. A great, and inexpensive, way to make your RV feel more like home is to accessorize. Pick up a few throw rugs to add color and personality to your living spaces. Framed pictures, as long as they are hung securely, are another way to brighten up your RV. Throw pillows and blankets can make your RV more comfortable as well as improving the look. You don't have to do it all in a day, but over time, these small accessories will make your RV feel more like yours.
Let's be honest. The manufacturer's window treatments that come standard are awful. To personalize your rig, toss the valances and blinds and get some curtains! They'll soften up your space as well as add color and functionality. Finding curtains that fit your windows may be challenging, but you can always sew your own or get a crafty friend to hem what you buy.
Paint or Refinish
Unlike our other tips, this one is more work and could be more expensive. But if you do undertake painting your RV, the results are well worth it! You can add accent walls or choose a light, airy shade for the walls to brighten up the space or give it a stronger look. Hate the cabinets? Refinish or paint those too! It's not a fun job, but one that will give you lots of satisfaction in your work and finished product. You can completely change the look of your RV with a little time and paint.
Make up a to-do list of everything you want to accomplish in your RV. If you chip away at it, you'll end up with an RV that feels like home with just a little time and money.
