Caravan Interior Changes on a Budget Our Ideas Will Help
Old Caravan Interior
Considering a caravan interior is a small space it's surprising how much difference a spruce up can make and most re-design updates can be done cheaply,
Some caravans we have seen come through our caravan breakers yards from the general public and caravan dealers over the years have had delightful and tasteful changes made and wee will tell you here some of the best, on the other hand we will leave out the many disasters we have seen phew! some real shocking designs.
First off lets get the exterior out of the way, if you want to be noticed then vinyl wrap (the most expensive) is the way to go or on a budget caravan decals or vinyl stickers there are many check out ebay for instance and they are cheap by comparison and easy to fit yourself if you have a modicum of DIY skills.
Number One Little things that make a big difference to a caravan interior
Static Caravan Interior
With our low cost caravan interior changes the intentions here are for a quick and easy brightening up that can be cheaply achieved with the addition of rugs with colours that will match your overall redecoration theme so you need to have the final goal already in mind or this first idea if later discarded is just a waste of money.
I'm sure I don't have to tell you how to go about finding cheap decent quality soft furnishings so I wont.
Cushions to match your colour scheme can also enliven the living space cheaply plus you can keep your eye open for little touches like matching caravan microwave, cups, mugs, teapot, toaster and kettle or anything you see caravan related for hanging on walls or little ornaments easily stowed for touring.
Second Check The Caravan Upholstery Cost and Average Cost To Reupholster a Static Caravan
When a caravan gets a few years old even though most are quite lightly used due to being a holiday and get away weekends thing they still start to look a little down at heel don't they?
So naturally depending on how much your looking to spend having your caravan cushion seating re upholstered can make a massive difference and if you decide on this route I must stress how important it is to have your overall colour scheme firmly in place as it is not cheap to change.
If do decide on re upholstery then it would be a good time to check the foam and replace any needing firming up, this option while not as cheap as do it yourself re covering or throw overs (an excellent way to change colours cheaply) would I suspect be the most satisfying and long lasting caravan interior change to make.
Third Changing Touring Caravan Curtains or Static Caravan Curtains
After changing your upholstery decor by any of the above means how about matching your caravan curtains to complete that enviable make over, you could push the boat out and go for thermal backed curtains, if you like the odd winter holiday I'm sure you would be pleased you went the thermal/blackout curtain route.
As for a complete change of upholstery, it’s also amazing what a few simple changes to other soft furnishings can achieve. For example, new curtains. You could even add thermal backing while you’re at it, for improved insulation and blackout.
Many of you will know people who make curtains as way to earn a little money on the side or maybe you can make curtains your self if so then all the better and it will keep the cost of your caravan interior make over down.
Fourth Replacement Caravan Blinds or Fitting Caravan Blinds
Caravan blinds as an addition to any caravan are simply put a matter of opinion and choice, I no opinion one way or the other I have had great times in Motorhomes Campervans touring caravan and static caravans with both curtains and blinds, in some instances both were fitted, that said you can get coloured blinds and they if that's what you want can be integrated in to your overall re design.
Fifth Changing Caravan Lights for Caravan LED Lights
You can save money and get better lighting for those dark nights by just switching over to LED bulbs, you can buy coloured bulbs and if your caravan has light shades it would be a good idea to match them up with your new caravan interior design.
Led strip lights are cheap to by and fit and can add that extra sparkle, though I know some people frown on them as bling or flashy each to their own one mans meat and all that.
Sixth Caravan Security
This may be a good time to overhaul your caravan security (you know it makes sense) if you have caravan insurance I'm pretty sure adding to or fitting if you don't have any in place now will get the price of your caravan insurance down a little and may help pay for buying your caravan security devices. Things you could add are:- Alko wheel lock or Milenco wheel clamp or other brands Alko hitch lock or milenco hitch lock or other brands Also a good time to check window locks Door locks Caravan alarms if fitted or consider fitting one if not.
For security of your touring caravan when at home how about drive way security posts they can also protect your car if your drive is long enough to take both car and caravan.
