Design caravans and turn them into a cozy home on wheels
Be on the go without having to leave the comfort of your own home
How can you design and beautify your caravan?
Beautify the interior walls
Attaching sheets of plywood or ship’s battens to the walls is a simple RV interior design idea. This will make your vehicle feel less like a means of transport and more like a home. You can even paint the panels in neutral tones like white, beige and tan to visually open up the space and make your home on wheels feel bigger!
Make your RV look big and inviting
A simple caravan conversion idea is to clad the walls with battens.
Similar to a house, the flooring is an important part of the interior design. Some of the most popular floor coverings include vinyl plank or bamboo flooring as they resemble real hardwood floors and are easy to clean. You can even put a colorful rug to protect the floor and make the interior warm and welcoming.
Installing lighting is a great way to brighten up your caravan at night too. Just hang LED string lights or strip lights to illuminate your space and make it cozy.
Cosiness is very important when you are traveling
A skylight is a must as it lets in lots of natural light during the day and allows you to sleep under the stars at night. Not to mention that a skylight will make your caravan feel more spacious and cozy!
Invest in a kitchen
Installing a kitchen in your caravan can help you save money on the road. You can install an upscale kitchen with granite countertops, a sink and faucet, and a stove. Or you can build a pull-out kitchen with a two-burner stove, work surface and hidden storage space. Which idea do you like better?

Set up dining and work area
If you plan to work on the go or travel with your family, a multi-purpose dining and work area is a fantastic idea for your caravan interior. You can even use a detachable or foldable table to turn the room into another sleeping area.
Make room for a shower
When you’re on the go, you might not always have the opportunity to shower as often as you would indoors. Try to build a mini shower with a heated water tank, tiles, a retractable door and a drain. For simpler shower systems, however, you can attach a pull-out shower head and hose to a kitchen sink and use a solar-powered heating tank.
Creative ideas with tiles
Tiles offer a creative way to add color to an RV, make cleaning easier, and give the vehicle a homelike look. Lay patterned tiles in the kitchen as a backsplash, or glue tiles to the inside of the vehicle door that can double as a shower screen when using a portable solar shower!
A splash of color matters
Opt for a Murphy bed
A Murphy bed is perfect for a caravan as it saves so much space. During the day, the bed can be pulled up against the wall, giving you space to cook or work. And at night you can pull it down and crawl in!
build bunk beds
Bunk beds are a must when traveling with kids! Not only do you save space for another sleeping area, but your children also have their own place to rest or play.
This is what the optimal solution looks like
Install a swing
Bring the fun indoors with a swing! This is a great addition to your caravan. If you don’t want to install a swing after all, a hammock in the back of your caravan is an inexpensive alternative. Incidentally, this can be stowed away more easily when it is no longer needed!
Rocking fun for young and old
When traveling with a caravan, there is little space for privacy. A stylish idea for separating the interior is to hang decorative curtains or a tapestry in front of the bed or sitting area. This way you can spend a little time alone without having to leave the caravan.
You don’t have to overdo it with the decoration of your caravan, because the motto “less is more” applies here, but a few small decorative items such as decorative cushions can noticeably beautify your living space!
Houseplants not only add color to your RV, but they can also serve as a mini herb garden that you can use to spice up and enhance your meals. Attach some planters to the wall or hang them near the window to get the best natural light.
This is how you create an extra festive mood in your caravan
Install a projector in the caravan
Tune in to your favorite channel or watch movies with a projector in your caravan. You can connect a computer or a phone to the projector and display it on a plain wall or on a white sheet.
There are many ideas on how you can design your caravan to transform it into a chic oasis of well-being. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and safe on the road. Have fun and enjoy the summer in your home on wheels. This makes the holiday season even more fun!
Your home office can also travel with you. What do you think about that?
