Owning your own caravan is a very exciting adventure. Whether it is a touring caravan that is designed to be towed by a motor vehicle, or a static caravan that stays in one place, there are plenty of ways you can make your caravan reflect who you and your family are.
Caravans are a great staycation idea, as you can take them to different locations, and explore areas you have always wanted to, without worrying about spending too much or travelling really far. No matter the size of your caravan, there are plenty of interesting ways in which you can decorate it to make it a home away from home.
Think about the colour scheme or theme you would like inside your caravan. Lighter tones help make the space look larger, which can be useful when dealing with smaller spaces like those within a mobile home.
However, they can easily be marked or scratched, so it is important to take this into account when decorating, and you could use paint that is easy to wipe clean in areas that receive a lot of traffic, such as doorways. When thinking about materials, it is also important to consider what you are going to use the caravan for and who is going to stay it in. Carpets are comfortable on the feet but can be tricky to clean, so if you have young children or pets or are renting your caravan out to others, there are plenty more flooring options that are easier to keep clean.
Depending on your location, you may need to fit out your caravan with different accessories. For example, a static caravan at a holiday park in Wales will need different items than a smaller touring caravan. There are some general items that can also be helpful, such as a cover to keep your caravan clean or any outdoor extras such as parasols or awning. There are also some great space-saving items that you can use, such as collapsible or stacking kitchen equipment. This can help save space and make the most of your surfaces and cupboards.
The furnishings in your caravan are also important to consider, from the look to the practicality. Surfaces that are easy to keep clean are generally favourable, as this gives you more time to enjoy your holiday instead of spending it dusting and hoovering. Furthermore, there are plenty of genius storage and space solutions that you can include in your caravan.
For example, seating that doubles as storage makes use of space that would otherwise be empty. You have to have some kind of seating in your caravan, so why not make it work twice as hard? It is also a great idea to use hooks on which to hang items so that you are making the most of the wall space instead of putting things on the floor or on countertops. Underbed storage is another great idea, as it again makes use of necessary furniture items.
