RVs should feel like a rolling home–cozy and inviting. But most RVs are designed for the masses and lack the personal touches of a lived-in spaceWith a little creative thinking and some RV-friendly accessories, your home on wheels will feel custom and comfy with no tools needed. 

In order to avoid damaging your RV, or decreasing its resale value, try decorating with some of these damage-free decorating ideas.  

Peel and Stick Wallpaper

Gone are the days of gooey wallpaper glue. Today’s peel-and-stick wallpapers are easy to use and come in all kinds of designs. Try a floral paper for a country chic look. Retro designs look good on a vintage trailer. Minimal patterns are pleasing to the eye without being overpowering. Be creative and wallpaper the ceiling to expand the space.

Painting is a simple and easy solution to sprucing up an interior that doesn’t require special skills. Start with an accent wall in the entryway or the bathroom to test out a color. To keep up the resale value, choose a neutral color.

Most RVs come equipped with valences, a type of window treatment that functions as a frame for holding up factory-installed blackout shades. Valences can be reupholstered, but for a simpler DIY simply add your own curtains. Pick up tension rods and curtain clips at any big-box store. Choose your own fabric to add character, or test out the idea with tea towels.

Add Plants 

Plants do double duty in an RV, adding a touch of residential comfort while also purifying the air. Choose a common indoor plant like Snake Plant or Spider Plants (which thankfully have nothing to do with their animal counterparts). During transit, store your plants in the sink or shower so they don’t roll around.

Hang Artwork  

Hanging artwork on the walls is where “damage-free,” gets tricky. Fortunately, there are a lot of different ways to hang art in your RV. Command strips, peel-and-stick-velcro, and magnets are just a few solutions to getting your favorite artwork on display.

Peel and Stick Backsplash 

Peel-and-stick backsplash solutions are an RV’ers best friend. They are easy to remove later and don’t damage the walls. In the meantime, the PVC surface is perfect as a wipeable backsplash that gives an RV an apartment-style look.

Contact Paper Countertops 

Rather than ripping out your kitchen and cabinets, try giving your countertops a new look with vinyl peel and stick countertops. Marble finishes can transform an RV kitchen into residential luxury in just an afternoon’s work.

Custom Lighting  

Lighting is for more than just illuminating the situation. It’s also about setting the mood. Factory-installed lights in RVs tend to have great output, but terrible ambiance. Add warmth and softness to an RV interior with LED candlesWrap your TV in LED rope lights to make late-night television easy on the eyes. Line your bed frame in twinkly lights for a soft glow.
