Whether you already have plans for your new motorhome, caravan or campervan or not, we’ve looked into what other owners do with theirs. They turn them into homes on wheels. They’re not restrained by location, they have home-like qualities and are make for affordable living, so what’s not to admire? Take a look for yourselves, here’s some inspiration for you.
Go from morning to night
You probably won’t have that much space in a motorhome, caravan or campervan anyway, so you’d have to use everything available efficiently. Do what you would do if you were designing a modern-style bedroom and make everything compact. Chairs that fold into tables or sofas that flip into beds are a real space saver. With caravans, the sleeping quarter is already designed like that, so maybe it just needs a makeover for some character.
You may decide to work with what you already have inside the motorhome, caravan or campervan, but some owners prefer to ‘gut’ the area. Converting the interior space may also be considerably easier by working from scratch rather than working around what is already there. Rather than working with its original work, you would be able to maximise storage and space by incorporating extra drawers, overhead cabinets and space under the bed.
A home on wheels
While this interior is actually the inside of a Sprinter Van (above), it has an oven, a fridge, running hot water, a toilet, a hot shower, and beds for four people. Its finesse carpentry and furnishings make it look the part for sure. If all of these things can fit into a van, it can fit into a motorhome or caravan, so when it comes to renovation you’ll definitely be able to make a home from the smallest of spaces.
There’s also the subtler, more simplistic interior design – this one ticks all the boxes but looks smooth, tidy and luxurious. It’s almost like a hotel on wheels. The motorhome, caravan or campervan you purchase may have a dark, tired or even lifeless feel and look to it. Rather than settle with the exhausted vibe, redecorate it with new features that make it look exciting and brighten up the little space there is.
This renovation has opened up the inside space so it looks so roomy for a tiny home. With a fold-down desk, romantic fairy lighting and curtains to hide the bed, it has a really warm and cosy feel. What it has in space arguably lacks in personality, however, so getting decorations or ornaments could add to a more distinctive, home-like feel.
It’s the little things
Even if you don’t want to change anything in your new motorhome, caravan or campervan, maybe you can make small but neat and effective changes such as storing shoes in smaller areas. For example, having a self-contained kitchen area that lifts in and out of the motorhome, caravan or campervan. Removable kitchens still make a good use of space, and they’re perfect if you’re just using it on weekends. You can also make things out of existing pieces of furniture; just make sure it works for you.
