5. Adaline’s Home Boho Modern Farmhouse RV Renovation

It’s hard to pick a favorite remodeling video for us (we love them all). However, the interior of this trailer is so bright (white paint can do a ton for boring spaces), feels like home, has plenty of storage space, and we love the decor.

This video shows it’s possible to have a luxury home on wheels and the journey Adaline’s been on will teach you that life is short – do what makes you happy!

RV Bathroom Ideas

When was the last time an RV bathroom made you feel excited? Chances are, the answer is “Only when I really have to do my business!”. We’re so used to the interior of our RV bathrooms and sometimes, just don’t know what we can do do to spruce the space up.

The following pictures will show that your camper bathroom doesn’t have to be dull. There’s plenty of space to work with, and you’ll be thrilled with how your camper’s interior looks with a few simple changes.

Need a few ideas? We’ve got you covered.

Jacquline's RV Bathroom

Take Jacqueline Sarah for example – she admits that she never thought she’d only have a 12 sq ft bathroom, but did what she could to make it the most luxurious camper bathroom you’ve ever seen. With photos, floating shelves, and hanging plants, what more could you want?

Jory's Bathroom Renovation

The soft boho vibes we get from Jory’s camper bathroom makes us feel warm and fuzzy. It just looks like home (and when you feel that from looking at a picture of a renovated bathroom, it must be a good sign, right?).

Bethany's Bathroom

Bethany from Simple Cat Lady went all out with the interior of her camper bathroom. The floor, the decor, the backsplash… we could go on and on. We love how this interior looks (and it looks like she has a decent amount of storage space in her bathroom, too – cabinets under the sink and more to the left of the picture? A dream!).

5 Easy Ways to Spruce Up Your RV Interior

1. Add Simple Decor

Adding a few simple decorations can make your RV feel more like home.

Some things you could add to spruce up your RV interior are:

  • Plants
  • New furniture
  • Artwork
  • Rugs
  • Throw pillows
  • Solar panels
  • Light fixtures

You’d be surprised, these little additions make a huge difference in your cozy space.

Not to mention, RVs don’t always come personalized to your liking. In order to get the whole place how you want it, you need to renovate!

2. Replace Furniture

Want to really spruce up your RV interior? This will take a tremendous amount of work – but replacing your RV furniture will do wonders when you go to remodel.

Think about it – when was the last time your RV kitchen cabinets were changed? How many scratch marks are on those cabinet doors?

Swapping out furniture may be time consuming, but it will breathe new life into your used RV! It can be as small as swapping out a light fixture or as big as replacing the countertops. You can also get brand new RV bedding for maximum comfort in the bedroom!

3. Add a Backsplash

If you’re looking for quick and easy RV renovation ideas, adding a backsplash is it!

Backsplashes can be made out of different materials like tile, marble, or even wood. They give your RV kitchen or bathroom an instant facelift.

Plus, they’re pretty easy to install – you could probably do it yourself in a few hours!

Looking for some inspiration on how to add some backsplash? Check out Sarah’s YouTube video (she goes in depth and is incredibly helpful!).

4. Replace Your RV Flooring

One of the most important but often forgotten RV renovation ideas is replacing your flooring. Not only will it make your camper look new again, but it will also be much more comfortable to walk on.

There are many different types of RV floors you can choose from to replace your old RV floor.

For example, laminate or vinyl plank flooring are popular choices because they’re durable and easy to clean up spills.

Carpet is another good choice if you want something a little bit softer on your feet – but it’s not as practical for RVs that get a lot of use.

Check out this video Brian made – he’s from RV with Tito and goes in depth about how to change up your RV floors! New flooring is sure to make a big difference in your motorhome!

5. Paint

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to renovate your RV is to paint it. Painting your RV walls can be a lot of fun and it’s a great way to completely change the look of your camper.

There are many different painting techniques you can use on your RV, but we recommend using an enamel paint.

Enamel paint will give your RV walls a high gloss finish and it’s very durable – perfect for RVs that are constantly on the move!

Before you start painting, it’s important to make sure that your RV is clean and free of any dust or dirt.

You should also take some time to prep your RV walls by sanding them down with an orbital sander. This will allow you to get rid of any imperfections on the wall surface so that it’s smooth and ready for painting!

To Sum It All Up

RV renovations aren’t too hard to do. Whether you’re looking to paint the walls to add a new color scheme, customize the bathroom, add new kitchen appliances, change out the cabinets in the RV kitchen, or spruce up the exterior of the RV, we’re sure you’ll find an affordable way to do it!
