RV owners have taken RV interior decorating to a whole level making their motorhomes, travel trailers and fifth wheels more livable and appealing. They have stepped out of the dreary and drab to func tional and fab in interiordecorating. RV owners have applied the same customization they have or had in their sticks and bricks homes.
Its that time when we bring out the menorahs, kinaras and nativities and celebrate the holidays with family, friends and coworkers. Its a fun event where we can decorate with sparkle and lots of cheer. As decorators, we can choose traditional red and greens, farm stand whites, hunting blacks and reds, country burlaps or….OR go bold and bright! We are going to take you inside our fifth wheel to see how we decorated OUR RV for Christmas!
You’ve no doubt, seen a trend lately in RV upgrades. Everything is WHITE; walls, cabinets, textiles, window shades, etc. And we get that, its certainly a personal choice. But, in all-things-decor, its a trend that will change; whether it takes weeks, months or even years.
Though we’ve not taken our two year old luxury fifth wheel down to bare bones (ie. removing cabinets, major reconstruction), we have made modifications and improvements; one of which was removing all of the carpet and replacing it with new solid surface flooring.
One would think the bathroom being the smallest room in an RV would be the easiest to remodel and be the least time consuming. It was actually the most challenging because it was such a small space. It also involved temporarily removing the toilet to do some modifications. But it was worth it because our makeover was a resounding SUCCESS!
We hope you enjoyed our RV Interior Design and Decor blog series so far. Our first segment RV Interior Design & Decor: PLANNING was popular and gave us the mojo to go ahead and further this detailed blog series. In this segment, we’re going to go into depth about PREPARATION & PAINTING YOUR RV INTERIOR.
Every RV remodel or renovation project needs to start with a good plan even before picking up a paint brush or hanging art on a wall. But, what if you don’t even know where to start? We’ll help walk you through the interior design planning process of your future RV makeover.
Stained glass…who doesn’t love gazing through the many colors when the sun shines through? It reminds me of when I was a little girl staring at the stained glass windows in church instead of paying attention to the gospel and readings. I’d study every color, every soldered line, and the artistic characters. I was thinking, “why couldn’t we apply that to our home on wheels?” Not that we want our RV to look like a church but adding a little artistic impression is a good thing.
So, you’ve been to the big RV Super Shows. What did you think? I’m sure they all had gorgeous new RV paint schemes, new floor plans, cool tech options, state of the art lighting, amazing new fixtures, etc. But what did you think about the RVs’ interior design?
