Just like your home reflects your personality and style, so does your campsite and RV. It’s relaxing and comforting to personalize your campsite and RV with home decor, pictures, pillows, etc. Whether you camp from time to time or live in your RV year round, there are so many ways to bring a little bit of home with you.
Depending on the size of your RV, you can purchase some comfortable furniture to update the look, or do something easy and more cost friendly like putting up curtains, pictures, getting a new comforter or throw pillows to add some color and comfort to the RV. One easy way to relax in your RV is to make sure it’s clean and that there’s no clutter.
Have you ever considered an awning? Those are great ways to add to your RV, creating an outside area that is covered and perfect for setting up some chairs. Awnings are also great for adding a little light – just string up some Christmas lights on the awning. Use DIY ideas to personalize the lights, like this patio lights idea, http://craftybutt.blogspot.com/2011/08/diy-patio-lights.html.
Gardening is something that many enjoy, but if you’re traveling in your RV a lot, it’s harder to enjoy that hobby. Try ideas like the Topsy Turvy Planters that are easy to maintain and lighter in weight than huge planters that you would move in and out of your RV.
Cooking is a great way to bring home with you while you’re camping. If you cook a lot, make sure to bring those pots and pans you may use often. Using real silverware and plates definitely brings a homier feel to the meal, but if you don’t want to worry about the extra cleanup, try silverware that’s plastic but looks real, like http://www.amazon.com/Reflections-Heavyweight-Silver-Disposable-Flatware/dp/B000JHGQKW.
How do you make your RV feel more like home?
