Uniquely Personal RV Decorating Ideas on a Budget
Looking to give some pizzazz to your RV living space? To make it even more inviting and amazingly cozy? To make it truly your own and a joy to spend time in? You’ve come to the right place!
No matter the size of your RV home, you can transform it into something that will make it seem more like, well…home! And without having to spend an arm and a leg to do it. When you first purchase your RV, it will likely be very functional, but it will just look ho hum. Here’s how to change that!
First, Add a Splash of Wall Color
Add your favorite color tone to an accent wall to immediately change the look and feel of the interior space. You can get high-quality paint at an affordable price, and choosing the right color for you can make or break the entire vibe of your RV. Using a bold color for the accent wall combined with your favorite neutral color can bring stunning results.
Next, Paint the Cabinets
Give your storage spaces an instant facelift by painting them in complementary colors to the walls. For example, think about the edgy look of bright walls accented by dark-colored cabinets. Or for a more muted look, paint the cabinets the same neutral color, but trim them with the accent wall color. The sky is the limit with respect to your favorite color combination style. Let your imagination soar!
Then, Add Flair with Wall Art
You don’t have to spend a lot of moolah on great art. Art is truly in the eye of the beholder, so keep a lookout for wall pieces that speak to your aesthetic, then snatch them up! Whether you enjoy photography, paintings, or sculptures, the most subtle of additions can often make the most significant impact on your small living space.
Adorn with Fabulous Fabric
The seating areas, the breakfast nook, the bedroom spaces – all of these can be transformed with just a few choice pieces of fabric. Whatever your tastes – classic, traditional, modern, eclectic, solids, patterns, etc. – choose slipcovers and throw pillows that reflect you. It is the slightest touch that will instantly create an inviting appeal.
Upgrade the Fixtures
Just as with fabric, replacing outdated or bland fixtures is another great way to add personality to your rig. This can include light fixtures, cabinet and drawer handles, light switch covers and door handles. If you have access to a local specialty home goods or restoration hardware store, they often have unique designs that reflect your personal tastes.
Time to Change the Curtains
RVs are notorious for having incredibly bland window treatments. They tend to block out too much light when you really need to let in as much natural light as possible to make the space seem more open. Ditch the accordion blinds, crappy valences, and try roller shades with a set of your favorite curtains. You will be amazed at how this trick alone improves the look of your RV. Natural light is everything.
Accent Lighting is Awesome
Not only is it cost-effective, but LED accent lighting is the new thing for a reason. LED light strips help to create a sleek and energy-efficient look. Or change out those harsh bright light bulbs for more muted, warm bulbs to create a cozier feel once the sun goes down.
Finally, Pay Attention to the Floor
As with the rest of a new RV, the flooring is not always easy on the eyes. Consider replacing the floor with a unique paneled pattern, or simply add a vibrant floor rug of your choice. It can help revamp your entire RV.
