Nothing says summer like a good old-fashioned road trip. It’s quite the American tradition. The first airstream was invented all the way back in 1929, and Americans have been hitting the road ever since.
If you’re ready to go on an adventure of your own, don’t pack your bags just yet. You need to make sure your RV is cozy. Especially if you plan on being away from home for days, weeks, or even months at a time.
Here are three simple ways you can make your RV feel more like home, no matter where your travels take you.
It’s All in the Details
When most people are ready to spend time in an RV, they don’t think about the details. You just want to hit the road already! However, accessorizing your RV with the right details before you embark can make a huge difference in how comfortable you feel at the end of each day.
What details should you use to enhance your RV? Here are a few things you can do immediately to make your RV feel more like home:
- Ambiance: Think lamps, electric candles, and essential oil diffusers.
- Artwork: Hang paintings on the wall and accessorize shelves with figurines.
- Greenery: Plants, even fake ones, can make a small space seem homey.
Clear out the Clutter
When making a space feel like home, many people mistakenly believe that means getting more stuff. If the tiny house movement has proven anything, it’s that people are living more comfortable, vibrant lives with fewer things.
Start by getting rid of duplicate items. That includes your clothes too. There’s no need for 5 pairs of pants if you can have one pair in the washer while you wear the other pair.
Go electronic. Instead of bringing along magazines and books, download them all onto a portable device before you go on vacation.
Think multipurpose and collapsible items. Look for laundry hampers that fold down, and purchase a sturdy cooler that can double as a table or a chair in a pinch.
Update Your Furniture
RV furniture just screams travel trailer. That’s not what you want to feel when you kick back and put your feet up after a long day.
Update the furniture in your RV with stylish options that you might find in a traditional home. If you don’t want to put the money into replacing all of the furniture in your RV, consider slipcovers. Even throw pillows can make a big difference in how a small space feels.
Don’t forget about your mattress! Make sure you get a good night’s sleep by scrapping that useless RV mattress and purchasing the right mattress for your body type and sleep style.
Making your RV feel like home doesn’t have to be difficult. As a matter of fact, it can be a lot of fun! With these three tips, you’ll be able to travel in comfort and style.
