Re-vamping your beloved caravan is sure to be a rewarding experience. Improving your interior doesn’t have to be expensive, in fact, there are a lot of areas that you can easily update yourself! Here are our top tips for transforming your caravan and making it the perfect home away from home.
Fun caravan seat covers
You’re likely to spend a lot of time in your seating area so why not make the most of it! If you’ve had your caravan for a while your seating material is likely to have gotten a little tattered and torn in places so why not treat your caravan to a fabulous new seating design. Choose a colour or pattern that compliments your caravan interior and you’ll have a wonderful new space where you can chill out and relax.
Materia Products supply high-quality custom removable caravan seat covers and cushions for static and touring caravans that can be specially designed to match your interior and are also easy to clean.
Replace old fashioned curtains with more modern blinds that both let in lots of light and protect your privacy. There are lots of different types of blinds to choose from, they can be made from fabric, metal, wood and a host of other materials. Choose neutral coloured blinds that won’t clash with the colour scheme of your interior.
Choose a colour scheme that reflects your personality and allow it to flow through every room of your caravan. The colour you choose will make an enormous difference to the space, so take care and stick to light, bright colours as they will make your interior seem much bigger. If you choose to wallpaper the inside of your caravan, you should consider applying it to only one section of the van, especially if it has a particularly busy or detailed pattern.
Clean and de-clutter
If you’ve had your caravan for a while, you’re sure to have collected a lot of things from your travels that you don’t really need. Cleaning and getting rid of clutter is probably the most effective way to transform any living space so take time to look at all the items in your caravan and ask yourself “do I really need this?”. Try to be more organised before leaving for your holiday and make a list of everything you need, this will save you a lot of stress and help you to avoid over-packing. Caravans are designed to be compact so you should make the most of your space by making sensible storage decisions. Investing in fold away clotheshorses, hooks for kitchen utensils and drawer dividers will save you the unnecessary clutter.
Make it your own
Although you don’t want to add loads of clutter to your caravan this doesn’t mean that you can’t add some accessories here and there. A couple of decorative cushions, some fairy lights, or a few photos from previous holidays will make your caravan more comfortable and really give it that personal touch.
