Remodeling an RV’s interior can be a very rewarding, yet challenging process. There are so many individual projects that one could complete in order to customize their home away from home. One such space that many enjoy remodeling is the bedroom. In an RV, the bedroom is typically where one goes to sleep, but it can also be a place where travelers go to relax, watch TV, or even work on their laptops from bed. Renovating this space can bring beauty and serenity to this corner and may even make traveling in your RV more fun. Follow along for the five best tips on remodeling your RV bedroom.
1. Paint the room a light color
Painting your RV in general can really lighten and brighten up the overall space. This is especially true in the bedrooms, which tend to be on the smaller side. Lighter paint colors make the biggest difference and can really open up the room and make it seem larger. If you choose to paint, be sure to sand, clean, and tape before you begin.
To add some character, you can also choose to paint a bright accent wall in the bedroom. This can draw attention to a certain area or color scheme without requiring the entire room to be a bright color. You can also choose to do an accent wall with wallpaper, shiplap, or any other difference in color and texture. This will add some depth to your space and keep things fun and fresh.
2. Add a headboard
Instead of adding an accent wall, you can also choose to add a headboard behind your bed. Some RV bedrooms have a window behind the bed, but others may just have a regular wall. Either instance allows the possibility of adding a headboard, which can be done with paint, tile, wallpaper, shiplap, or any other number of creative possibilities. Remember that your headboard is mostly decorative, and you can make it as fun and bright as you would like. Be sure to watch some tutorials if you plan to try something new.
3. Hang some art
Nothing makes a space your own quite like hanging up some fresh art. This can include any number of things, such as paintings of your favorite places, photos from your travels, fiber art, ceramic pieces, and so much more. If you have the wall space, a collage or grouping can also look nice in your bedroom. Ideally, any pieces that fit the theme of your space and bring you joy will do. Keep in mind that in a small room, less is more, so try not to overdo it.
4. Choose new bedding
With your newly painted bedroom and new wall hangings, you will want to add some modern bedding next. Most RVs come with tacky-colored, outdated bedding, and fresh bedding can really transform your overall space. When choosing new blankets and sheets, you will want to keep in mind that RV beds come in different sizes than traditional beds. This means that you will likely have to choose RV-specific bedding for your new bedroom.
There are a surprising amount of choices on the market. Denver Mattress has a few different choices, as do several retailers found through Camping World and several other online RV stores. One of the most popular choices on the market is Beddys. This innovative bedding is sold as a one-piece flat sheet, top sheet, and comforter combination. After enjoying a long night’s sleep, Beddys owners simply tuck their sheets in along the sides and zip up their bedding. This makes mornings much quicker and easier. Beddys come in a variety of color and pattern options, and they have an entire line for RV sized mattresses.
Another great comforter option is a duvet cover. This durable cover zips onto your bedding, covering it and allowing for easy cleaning. Either a duvet cover, traditional comforter, or Beddys set is great for your RV bedroom, depending on your needs and preferences.
5. Add throw pillows and blankets
After adding new bedding, you must next select some throw pillows and a throw blanket for added flair. If you have chosen a simple bedding, now is your time to add some fun pillows of various colors and materials. If you have chosen bedding with a bright color or pattern, choose some simple throw pillows and a basic blanket to avoid overdoing it. Keeping an extra blanket at the end of your bed looks cute and can also add additional warmth on chilly nights. Both the pillows and blanket can be rather versatile. As the seasons change, you can cover the pillows with a variety of prints and colors, and the blanket can also be changed out seasonally. There is really no limit to the possibilities.
6. Display some plants
Adding plants to a small space can really help to purify the air quality. It can also add both homeyness and a certain polished element. Earthquake putty is great for keeping plants in place while you are moving down the road. If you lack a green thumb, add some fake plants, but be sure to choose pots that match the rest of your space for a cohesive look.
Remodeling your RV’s bedroom is a great way to change the look of the space and add to your RV’s overall charm. It allows RV owners to personalize their space and make it their own. After all, traveling in a space you truly love makes traveling all the more enjoyable. Consider any of these five tips when renovating your bedroom for a room you are sure to love.
