Tips from Steph

As a full-time RVer, I’ve learned a lot about RV makeovers over the years. Here are a few of my top tips:

  • Start with a plan. Before you start making any changes to your RV, take some time to think about what you want to achieve. Do you want to update the décor, add new features, or completely redesign the layout? Once you have a plan, you can start making a budget and gathering supplies.
  • Don’t be afraid to DIY. Many RV renovations can be done yourself, even if you’re not a professional carpenter or electrician. There are tons of tutorials and resources available online and in RV magazines.
  • Shop around for the best deals. RV supplies can be expensive, so it’s important to shop around for the best deals. You can find great deals on used furniture, appliances, and other materials at garage sales, thrift stores, and online marketplaces.
  • Accessorize! Once you’ve made the major changes to your RV, don’t forget to accessorize! The right rugs, pillows, and other décor items can really make your RV feel like home.

Here are a few specific renovation ideas that you can tackle on a budget:

  • Paint your cabinets. A fresh coat of paint can make a big difference in the overall look and feel of your RV. Choose a light color to open up the space and make it feel more airy.
  • Update your hardware. New cabinet knobs and drawer pulls can add a touch of style and sophistication to your RV. You can find affordable hardware at most home improvement stores.
  • Replace your countertops. If your countertops are dated or damaged, consider replacing them. There are a variety of affordable countertop materials available, such as laminate, butcher block, and concrete.
  • Add a backsplash. A backsplash can add a touch of personality and style to your RV kitchen. You can use tile, peel-and-stick backsplash, or even contact paper to create a unique look.
  • Upgrade your lighting. New light fixtures can brighten up your RV and make it feel more inviting. Choose fixtures that complement your overall décor style.
  • Add some plants. Plants are a great way to add life and color to your RV. You can find affordable plants at most nurseries and garden centers.
